    Some quick questions

    I calculate that if I sell my car (~$12k), I will collectively save around $22,000.00 over the next 2.5 years (before investment) in insurance, gas, maint, depreciation, etc. until I am out of school, and can make a new decision from there.

    I live in Philadelphia, and my commute to work is ~2m, which I bike, and it's only a few blocks to classes.


    What I use my car primarily for are beach trips (every few weekends), and to go down to DE (around a 35 mile trip that is extremely bike unfriendly). I can take public transport home, but my beach trips would be done unless I go with a friend.

    Just wondering; if I want to drive my parents car when I go home, what kind of insurance will I need? I am paying $1100 a year for insurance currently.

    What would my ballpark costs be to maintain a license and insurance to just drive my parents cars, and the GF's car from time to time?

    i live right next door to DE and, yes, the roads are HORRID for biking. i feel ya bro.

    as far as insurance and license, etc. you should probably check with your parents and their insurance guy... they might be able to add you to their policy for a few bucks. i can't really be of any more help than that though because i'm not that familiar with it.

    the g/f's car might be a whole different ballgame... with lots of ways for an insurance company to get out of paying a claim if it's ever necessary. again, i'm really just guessing though.

    Shot an email off to my rep @ the insurance company, I will post the results.
