Car insurance can be pricey, but there may be some discounts that many people don’t even know exist. Some discounts will apply when you quote, but less common discounts must be specifically requested before you will receive the discount.
Please keep in mind that some of the credits will not apply to your bottom line cost. Some only apply to specific coverage prices like comp or med pay. Even though the math looks like adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way.
Companies and some of the discounts include:
Before you buy a policy, ask every prospective company which discounts you may be entitled to. Some discounts may not apply to policyholders in your area.

Understanding the coverages of your policy helps when choosing the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.
This will pay to fix damage to your Sidekick from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims like hitting a mailbox, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with a tree, rolling your car and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Frequently the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Liability car insurance
Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, 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, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability insurance covers things like court costs, bail bonds and medical services. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.
Insurance for medical payments
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for short-term medical expenses for prosthetic devices, doctor visits, hospital visits, X-ray expenses and surgery. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
This pays for 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 such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, hail damage and fire damage. The most your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
