Lower Your 1991 Acura Legend Car Insurance Rates

I really doubt anyone anticipates paying for insurance, especially when the cost is too high.

Multiple auto insurance companies compete for your hard-earned dollar, and it can be difficult to compare rates and get the best coverage at the lowest rate possible.

If you currently have car insurance, you will most likely be able to save some money using this strategy. Choosing the best insurance company for you is easy if you know what you’re doing. But car owners can benefit by having an understanding of the way companies compete online because it can help you find the best coverage.

Low cost insurance quotes online

All major insurance companies allow you to get coverage price quotes on their websites. Getting quotes doesn’t take a lot of time as you just enter the amount of coverage you want into a form. After you complete the form, the system makes automated requests for reports for credit and driving violations and quotes a price based on these and other factors. This makes it a lot easier to compare rates but the work required to visit each company’s website and repetitively type in the same information is monotonous and tiresome. But it is imperative to do this in order to find the best price possible.

The better way to compare rates

The easiest way to compare insurance pricing requires only one form to get prices from a lot of companies. It saves time, helps eliminate reptitive entry, and makes rate comparisons a lot less work. As soon as the form is sent, it gets priced and you can select your choice of the price quotes you receive. If the quotes result in lower rates, it’s easy to complete the application and buy the new coverage. The entire process only takes a few minutes and can result in significant savings.

To quickly compare rates now, click here and complete the simple form. If you have coverage now, it’s recommended you enter coverages and limits identical to your current policy. This makes sure you will be getting a fair comparison based on similar coverages.

Auto insurance ads are enticing

Auto insurance companies such as State Farm, GEICO and Progressive seem to constantly run ads on television and other media. They all try to convey promises that people will save if you just switch your coverage to them. Is it even possible that every company can offer drivers better rates? This is the trick they use.

All companies quote the lowest rates for the driver that is profitable for them. A good example of this type of risk profile might be between 25 and 40, has no claims, and does not commute to work. A customer that fits those parameters may get the lowest rates and will probably save money with a new company.

People who are not a match for the requirements will have to pay higher premiums with the end result being the customer not purchasing. The trick is to say “people who switch” not “all people who quote” save that kind of money. That’s the way companies can truthfully advertise the savings. Because of this risk profiling, you absolutely need to get price quotes at each policy renewal. Because you never know which insurance companies will have the lowest rates for your situation.

Discounts for cheaper car insurance rates

Companies offering auto insurance do not advertise every discount very well, so the next list breaks down both well-publicized and the harder-to-find credits available to you.

  • Senior Citizen Rates – Seniors can get lower premium rates on Legend insurance.
  • Early Renewal Discounts – A few companies give discounts for switching companies before your current coverage expires. It could save around 10% when you buy auto insurance online.
  • Homeowners Savings – Owning a house can help you save on car insurance since owning and maintaining a home means you have a higher level of financial diligence.
  • Passive Restraints and Air Bags – Vehicles equipped with air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems may earn rate discounts of 20% or more.
  • No Charge for an Accident – This one isn’t a discount, but a handful of insurance companies permit an accident without the usual rate increase as long as you don’t have any claims for a specific time period.
  • Multi-line Discount – Larger insurance carriers have lower prices if you buy a life insurance policy as well.
  • Auto/Home Discount – When you combine your auto and homeowners insurance with the same company they may give you a discount of 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Seat Belts Save – Buckling up and requiring all passengers to buckle up can save up to 10 percent (depending on the company) on medical payment and PIP coverage.

A quick disclaimer, some credits don’t apply to the entire policy premium. Most cut individual premiums such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. So when it seems like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, it just doesn’t work that way.

Large car insurance companies and some of the premium reductions they offer can be read below.

  • State Farm policyholders can earn discounts including driver’s education, anti-theft, defensive driving training, good driver, student away at school, and passive restraint.
  • Progressive offers discounts for online signing, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, continuous coverage, online quote discount, good student, and homeowner.
  • Progressive offers premium reductions for multi-policy, online quote discount, good student, continuous coverage, and multi-vehicle.
  • MetLife has savings for good driver, multi-policy, claim-free, accident-free, and good student.
  • Farm Bureau may include discounts for driver training, renewal discount, 55 and retired, youthful driver, and good student.
  • GEICO may offer discounts for air bags, defensive driver, five-year accident-free, anti-lock brakes, good student, multi-policy, and membership and employees.
  • SAFECO may have discounts that include teen safety rewards, teen safe driver, anti-theft, drive less, and safe driver.

When comparing rates, check with each insurance company to apply every possible discount. Depending on the company, some discounts might not be available to policyholders in your area.

Tailor your insurance coverage to you

When it comes to buying coverage for your vehicles, there is no “best” method to buy coverage. Every insured’s situation is different and your policy should reflect that. These are some specific questions might help in determining whether your personal situation could use an agent’s help.

  • Does medical payments coverage apply to all occupants?
  • Do I benefit by insuring my home with the same company?
  • Why do I need rental car insurance?
  • Which companies will insure high-risk drivers?
  • Is my vehicle covered by my employer’s policy when using it for work?
  • What can I do if my company denied a claim?
  • What is high-risk coverage and where do I buy it?
  • Am I covered if I drive in a foreign country?
  • Is my camper covered by my car insurance policy?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but one or more may apply to you then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out this quick form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

The coverage is in the details

Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy can help you determine appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find the normal coverages found on the average insurance policy.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Acura Legend.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.

Liability coverage – Liability insurance will cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not 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. As an example, you may have limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as loss of income, legal defense fees, medical expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and funeral expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying higher limits if possible.

Collision coverage – Collision insurance pays for damage to your Legend resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as hitting a mailbox, scraping a guard rail, colliding with a tree, sideswiping another vehicle and driving through your garage door. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Coverage for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for expenses for funeral costs, rehabilitation expenses, doctor visits and pain medications. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as a broken windshield, damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a deer and falling objects. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

In any little way, save everyday

In this article, we covered a lot of techniques to save on 1991 Acura Legend insurance. The most important thing to understand is the more times you quote, the better your chances of lowering your auto insurance rates. You may be surprised to find that the best rates are with a small local company. These smaller insurers can often insure niche markets at a lower cost compared to the large companies like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive.

When buying insurance coverage, you should never reduce coverage to reduce premium. In many instances, someone dropped full coverage and discovered at claim time they didn’t purchase enough coverage. Your focus should be to buy enough coverage for the lowest cost, but do not sacrifice coverage to save money.

Cheaper 1991 Acura Legend insurance can be sourced from both online companies and from local insurance agents, and you should compare rates from both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some car insurance companies may not provide online quoting and these regional carriers work with independent agents.

    I found pretty cheap rate quotes for a 1991 Acura Legend in Las Vegas, NV. Ended up at roughly $120 every six months with American Family. Just go online and compare their rates. I think I’ll get rid of full coverage next time.

    Just a quick comment on my experience. I’m in Overland Park, KS. I got free quotes from Auto-Owners, Sentry, and a few others for my Legend and saved $77 a year. Insured with Allstate before. My new agent seems to be really good. They were helpful in switching over. I only have liability coverage on it.
