The Discount: Military Discount (up to 25% off)
How to Get It: Are you an active service member in a branch of the U.S. military?  As long as you can provide documentation of your current orders, you could be eligible for a Military Discount on your auto insurance.

The Discount: Senior Citizen Discount (up to 5% off)
How to Get It: To qualify for the Senior Citizen Discount, you need to be over the age of 55 and have successfully completed a motor vehicle accident prevention course.  It’s that simple!

The Discount: Safe Driver Discount (up to 10% off)
How to Get It: If you are a cautious driver with a good driving record, there’s an excellent chance you could be eligible for a Safe Driver Discount from Direct Auto.  Your record just has to be free of violations and accidents for the last 36 months.  (To be sure, you’ll need to check your state’s requirements, as they may vary.)

The Discount: Mileage Discount (up to 5%)
How to Get It: Don’t drive much, but still need good insurance?  We think you deserve a discount, too.  If your vehicle is driven below a certain mileage amount per year, you could qualify for a Mileage Discount.

The Discount: Switchover Discount (up to 25% off)
How to Get It: We make it worth your while to choose Direct Auto over another insurance company.  In addition to our already cheap car insurance rates online, you could also get a discount if you have had prior coverage at another insurer.  If you have been with another provider for a minimum of six months, with no more than 90 days of lapse between previous coverage, we can reward you for switching to Direct Auto.

The Discount: Renewal Discount (up to 20% off)
How to Get It: Renewing your policy with Direct Auto?  We reward customers who stick with us.  If you have had no insurance policy lapse in the previous 12 months and choose to renew your coverage within 7-10 days of its expiration date, you could be eligible for a Renewal Discount.

The Discount: Multi-Product Discount (up to 5% off)
How to Get It: By now you probably know that it’s not just our car insurance policies that are cheap; you can save with our term life insurance, emergency protection plans, and roadside assistance.  If you choose to include one of these in your auto insurance policy, you could get an additional discount. (Qualifying product options may vary by state, so check with your local representative.)
