Listed below are a partial list of the pieces insurance coverage companies consider when setting prices.
Having a good grasp of car insurance can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement.
Liability coverage – This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to a person or their property. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see policy limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability insurance covers things such as loss of income, medical services, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, emergency aid and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Medical expense insurance – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for expenses such as rehabilitation expenses, X-ray expenses and EMT expenses. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage – This will pay to fix damage to your S-Series resulting from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers things such as colliding with another moving vehicle, damaging your car on a curb and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – This covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like vandalism, damage from flooding, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and falling objects. The maximum payout a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Saturn S-Series.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
In this article, we covered a lot of tips how to compare 1991 Saturn S-Series insurance prices online. The key thing to remember is the more times you quote, the better chance you’ll have of finding low cost insurance. You may be surprised to find that the lowest prices are with a small mutual company.
Drivers switch companies for any number of reasons including an unsatisfactory settlement offer, delays in responding to claim requests, unfair underwriting practices or questionable increases in premium. No matter why you want to switch, finding a great new company is less work than it seems.
Budget-friendly insurance can be bought on the web as well as from independent agents, so you need to quote insurance with both in order to have the best chance of saving money. Some companies may not offer online price quotes and most of the time these smaller companies only sell coverage through local independent agencies.
