It doesn’t matter which method you choose, just make sure you use nearly identical coverage limits on every quote you get. If you compare different limits and deductibles on each one it will be very difficult to find the best deal for your Buick Riviera.
The price of auto insurance can be rather high, but you may be missing some discounts that you may not even know about. A few discounts will be applied when you complete an application, but some may not be applied and must be specifically requested before you get the savings.
Discounts reduce rates, but you should keep in mind that some of the credits will not apply to the entire cost. Some only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like comprehensive or collision. Just because you may think all those discounts means the company will pay you, insurance companies wouldn’t stay in business. But any discount should help reduce the cost of coverage.
Larger auto insurance companies and a partial list of their discounts can be found below.
Double check with every prospective company what discounts are available to you. A few discounts may not apply to policies in every state.
Lots of things are part of the equation when quoting car insurance. Some of the criteria are obvious such as your driving history, but other criteria are less apparent like your continuous coverage or how safe your car is.

Understanding the coverages of your policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Auto insurance terms can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are the normal coverages found on most auto insurance policies.
Comprehensive coverage – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like a broken windshield, hitting a bird, damage from getting keyed and rock chips in glass. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Collision coverages – This covers damage to your Riviera from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision can pay for claims such as scraping a guard rail, rolling your car, hitting a parking meter, crashing into a ditch and backing into a parked car. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Medical payments coverage and PIP – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses for X-ray expenses, funeral costs, surgery and nursing services. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Auto liability – This protects you from damage or injury you incur to people or other property that is your fault. It protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see values of 25/50/25 that translate to a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for claims like court costs, medical services, attorney fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as much as you can afford.
When trying to cut insurance costs, never reduce needed coverages to save money. There are many occasions where an accident victim reduced uninsured motorist or liability limits and learned later that it was a big error on their part. Your goal should be to buy a smart amount of coverage at a price you can afford while still protecting your assets.
