    Here are some tips to save money on your new car so you can get your dream car while staying within your budget. 

    1. Check Your Car Insurance

    Car insurance is one of the most significant factors that play into the cost of the car. It is also the only component on your new car where you can save significantly, if you make the smart choice. When you buy your car insurance from ACKO, you can save up to Rs. 45,000/-. This is because you are buying the policy directly from us, the insurer. And that means zero commissions! We pass on those savings to you as low premiums. Just think of all the cool accessories and upgrades you can give your new car with those savings!

    Car dealers add the cost of insurance based on the policies that they believe is best for the buyer, although that is usually not the case. It is up to the buyer to choose the insurance policy that they believe fits the car that they are buying, their driving style and their budget. 

    And no matter what the dealer says, it is not mandatory to buy insurance from them. The IRDAI has clearly stated that vehicle buyers can buy their “policy through anyone and there is no compulsion to buy it through your vehicle dealer”. So remember that it is up to you, the buyer and not the dealer to make the decision on which insurance provider and which insurance policy to buy.

    2.Time Your Purchase

    When you time your new car purchase during peak festival times, the probability of scoring better deals is much higher. In India, the festive season of Navratri, followed by Diwali and then New Years are good times to buy a car. This is because dealerships across the country have a number of offers and discounts that can help you save significantly on your new car. 

    3.Relook your car financing options:

    Another way to save on your new car is by analyzing all your financing options. When you are financing your car heavily, ie, if you are taking a loan for a large part of the car’s cost, you may not have to pay much upfront, but you will incur heavy interest charges through the course of the loan’s tenure. However, if you are financing the car fully, although you will pay heavily upfront, it is only the cost of the car and you will save significantly on loan interest. So, make sure you try and pay as much upfront as possible to avoid interest charges. Make sure you also compare loan providers so you get the best interest rate on your loan. 

    Buying a New Car? Make sure you check savings on your new car's on-road price

    Remember, the easiest way to save money on your new car is through insurance. When you choose ACKO, you can save upto Rs. 45,000/- on your new car insurance. So why save 0 when you can save Rs. 45K?
