Car insurance discounts and rebates possibilities during COVID-19

One perk of the Stay at Home order has been all the gas money and wear and tear that people have been saving on their cars. Even essential errands around town have often become ones that people opt to use as an excuse to stretch their legs and walk to.

Well, it looks like you might be able to save even more money on car insurance.

Insurance Commissioner Vicki Schmidt encourages Kansas consumers to visit with their

auto insurers about potential discounts, rebates or reductions in premiums during the COVID-19 crisis.

“Many companies recognize the statewide stay-at-home order has reduced the number of Kansans

driving, lowering the risk for everybody,” Commissioner Vicki Schmidt said.

According to a press release sent out today, some companies, but not all, have announced measures to help consumers during this time such as rebates on premiums paid or discounts on rates. Kansas consumers should reach out to their auto insurer to find out the relief options that may be available to them.

“I am pleased insurers are finding ways to help Kansans get a few extra dollars in their pocket,”

Commissioner Vicki Schmidt said.

If you would like more information or need assistance finding contact information for your auto insurer, they are encouraged to reach out to the Kansas Insurance Department’s Consumer Assistance Division at 1-800-432-2484 or KID.Commissioner@ks.gov. Or call your insurance company directly.

While the Kansas Insurance Department building is closed due to COVID-19 precautions, remote

operations continue including those performed by the Department’s Consumer Assistance Division. The Department’s website insurance.kansas.gov is also a resource for consumers at this time.
