The kind of work you do, or where you do it, might allow you to save some money on your car insurance.
Insurance companies know that some occupations tend to mean less driving, less risk-taking -- and thus, fewer accidents. If you're in one of those professions, you could enjoy savings.
Farmers Insurance Group provides discounts for people in certain occupations, such as police officers, firefighters, doctors, dentists, registered nurses and teachers. Esurance has advertised "preferred occupation" savings for certified educators, engineers and scientists.
Some car insurance employee discounts stem from business relationships. Geico offers savings of up to 8 percent to employees working at other subsidiaries of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc., including Fruit of the Loom and See's Candies.
If you're self-employed and work from home, you may still be eligible for a discount -- particularly if you rarely use your car. Most insurance companies cut the bill for "low mileage" customers.
