Are you drained from scraping nickels together to make your insurance payment? Your situation is no different than the majority of other consumers. You have multiple insurance companies to buy insurance from, and although it’s a good thing to be able to choose, it can be more difficult to compare rates and find the lowest cost insurance.
The quickest method we recommend to compare rate quotes is to take advantage of the fact most insurance companies allow for online access to give you rate quotes. All consumers are required to do is spend a couple of minutes providing details including if you are currently licensed, whether or not you need a SR-22, how old drivers are, and if the car is leased. Your insurance information is instantly provided to multiple top-rated companies and they return rate quotes instantly to find the best rate.
Some providers don’t always publicize every discount in an easy-to-find place, so here is a list a few of the more well known and the more hidden insurance savings. If you aren’t receiving every discount you deserve, you’re just leaving money on the table.
Discounts reduce rates, but you should keep in mind that many deductions do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like physical damage coverage or medical payments. So even though it sounds like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, you won’t be that lucky.

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage for your vehicles, there really is no perfect coverage plan. Every situation is different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. These are some specific questions might help in determining if you may require specific advice.
If you can’t answer these questions but you know they apply to you then you might want to talk to an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, fill out this quick form or click here for a list of insurance companies in your area. It only takes a few minutes and can help protect your family.
Having a good grasp of car insurance aids in choosing the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are typical coverage types found on the average car insurance policy.
This protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property that is your fault. It protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability 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. As an example, you may have policy limits of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers things like court costs, repair costs for stationary objects and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses such as hospital visits, prosthetic devices, rehabilitation expenses and pain medications. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available and may carry a deductible
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as a broken windshield, hitting a bird, falling objects and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision coverage covers damage to your Corrado resulting from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers things such as damaging your car on a curb, scraping a guard rail and colliding with a tree. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Volkswagen Corrado.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important.
In this article, we covered many ways to compare 1991 Volkswagen Corrado insurance prices online. It’s most important to understand that the more rate quotes you have, the better chance you’ll have of finding cheaper insurance coverage. You may even discover the biggest savings come from a small local company. These companies can often provide lower rates in certain areas as compared to the big name companies such as Allstate, Geico and Progressive.
Budget-friendly insurance can be found from both online companies and from local agencies, so get free insurance coverage quotes from both of them to get a complete price analysis. A few companies do not provide the ability to get a quote online and usually these regional insurance providers sell through independent agencies.
When getting insurance coverage quotes online, don’t be tempted to buy poor coverage just to save money. In many cases, someone dropped collision coverage and found out when filing a claim that it was a big error on their part. Your goal should be to get the best coverage possible at the best price, but do not skimp to save money.

I switched to Progressive. Quoted good rates in Fort Wayne, IN. I don’t put full coverage on it.
I compared a lot of rate quotes for a 1991 Volkswagen Corrado in Charleston, WV. Ended up at darn near $90 every six months with AAA. I have a couple other vehicles on the policy. Highly recommended.

I live west of Tacoma, Washington. I compared lots of rates. Saved right around $20 a month. GEICO was the most affordable for me. Hardly afford to drive anymore.
Lifelong resident of Tucson, AZ, and State Farm rates were best. Not worth enough to pay for comprehensive and collision.
I can’t pay high rates. I’m just east of Los Angeles, CA. Got car insurance prices from Progressive, Amica, and Farmers for my 1991 Volkswagen Corrado and saved $80 a year. Liability only on my Volkswagen.
I think I’m paying too much. I’m in the suburbs of Kansas City, Kansas. I don’t recall every quote but I ended up saving about $20 each month. Liability only on my Volkswagen.
Nice post. I live in Detroit, Michigan. Got quotes with Amica, Sentry, and some smaller one I can’t remember the name of for my 1991 Volkswagen Corrado and saved $116 a year. Not sure if rates are cheaper online or not. I don’t insure for physical damage though.
In Denver, CO try State Farm or Progressive. Both had decent prices.
