Cutting costs on Driversinsurance coverage can seem to be quite difficult for people new to comparing prices online. There are so many agents and companies to choose from that it can easily turn into a challenge to find better prices.
Buying insurance coverage is not cheap, but there’s a good chance there are discounts that you may not even know about. Certain discounts will be applied at the time you complete a quote, but some may not be applied and must be manually applied in order for you to get them.
As is typical with insurance, many deductions do not apply to the entire policy premium. Most only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as medical payments or collision. So when the math indicates you can get free auto insurance, that’s just not realistic.
A list of companies and a partial list of their discounts are:
It’s a good idea to ask all the companies how many discounts you can get. Some of the earlier mentioned discounts may not be available in every state.
There are a variety of methods to compare car insurance prices but there is one way that is easier and takes less work. You can waste a few hours (or days) discussing policy coverages with insurance companies in your area, or you could use online quotes to get rates in a matter of minutes.
Most car insurance companies belong to a marketplace that enables customers to send in one quote, and each company can give them a price based on that information. This prevents consumers from doing quote forms to every company.

The one downside to comparing rates this way is you don’t know exactly the providers you want pricing from. So if you prefer to choose individual companies for rate comparison, we have a page of car insurance companies in your area. Click to view list.
It’s up to you which method you use, but make sure you are using the same quote information with every price quote. If you compare different liability limits then you won’t be able to find the best deal for your Volkswagen Fox. Just slight variations in coverage limits could throw off the whole comparison. Just keep in mind that comparing a wide range of rates helps increase your odds of locating better pricing.

Understanding the coverages of car insurance helps when choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Liability coverages – This can cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show limits of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as medical services, legal defense fees and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive insurance – This will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like a broken windshield, damage from getting keyed and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for expenses such as dental work, rehabilitation expenses, funeral costs, ambulance fees and chiropractic care. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Collision coverage – Collision coverage covers damage to your Fox caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for claims like sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with a tree, damaging your car on a curb, hitting a mailbox and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
As you shop your coverage around, it’s a bad idea to reduce coverage to reduce premium. Too many times, an insured cut comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to regret at claim time that they should have had better coverage. The aim is to buy enough coverage at the best cost but still have enough coverage for asset protection.
