Forget all the misinformation about car insurance because we’re going to demonstrate how to use the internet to properly buy coverages while reducing your premium.

The cheapest insurance coverage rate quotes

Getting a more affordable price on 1991 Volvo 740 insurance is a fairly straight forward process. Consumers just need to invest a few minutes to compare rate quotes provided by online insurance companies. You can get a good selection of rate quotes using a couple different methods.

  1. The first (and easiest) way to find the lowest comparison rates is to use a rate comparison form click here to open form in new window. This form saves time by eliminating multiple quote forms for each price estimate. A single, simple form gets rate comparisons from multiple companies. It’s definitely the quickest method.
  2. A harder way to get quotes online is to take the time to go to the website for every company you want to comare and fill out a new quote form. For examples sake, we’ll pretend you want to compare Nationwide, Geico and Liberty Mutual. To find out each rate you need to spend time on each company’s site to enter the same coverage data repeatedly, which can get old fast. To view a list of companies in your area, click here.
  3. The most time-consuming method to find cheaper rates is driving to different agent offices. Buying insurance online eliminates this option unless you have a complicated situation and need the advice and guidance of a local agent. You can, however, find lower rates online and have a local agent actually service the policy.

The method you choose is up to you, but make absolute certain that you use identical quote information on every price quote you get. If each company quotes different data you will not be able to determine which rate is truly the best.

Tailor your insurance coverage coverage to you

When choosing adequate coverage, there really is no one size fits all plan. Everyone’s situation is unique.

For instance, these questions may help you determine whether your personal situation could use an agent’s help.

  • Do I need PIP (personal injury protection) coverage in my state?
  • Should I have a commercial auto policy?
  • Am I missing any policy discounts?
  • Am I covered by my employer’s commercial auto policy when driving my personal car for business?
  • Are rock chip repairs covered?
  • What is roadside assistance coverage?
  • Is a fancy paint job covered?
  • Does my personal policy cover me when driving out-of-state?
  • What is UM/UIM insurance?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, you may need to chat with an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form. It only takes a few minutes and you can get the answers you need.

Car insurance coverage information

Knowing the specifics of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement.


Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to people or other property that is your fault. It protects you from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability insurance covers claims like medical services, repair costs for stationary objects, loss of income and court costs. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision insurance

This covers damage to your 740 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage pays for things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, damaging your car on a curb and sideswiping another vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for expenses such as EMT expenses, rehabilitation expenses, doctor visits, nursing services and chiropractic care. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and damage to your 1991 Volvo 740.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Comprehensive insurance

This coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as falling objects, damage from a tornado or hurricane, a broken windshield, fire damage and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Comments About 1991 Volvo 740 Insurance

  1. Carlton Peck

    If you have a good history and are close to Seattle, WA, check out 21st Century. They seem to be cheaper. BTW speeding tickets are not good. Anyone else drop full coverage?

  2. Mariam Freeman

    From a town just southwest of Cedar Rapids, IA. Got car insurance rates from State Farm, Esurance, and The General for my 740 and I think I cut my rates about $30 each month. Left State Farm to switch. I increased coverages a little too. It was easy to get rates.

  3. Natalya Whitney

    Cheaper not always better. I live just to the north of Pittsburgh, PA. Quoted quotes with Amica, Farmers, and MetLife for my Volvo and I think I am saving around $30 each month.

  4. Jone Merritt

    From a town just southwest of Raleigh, NC and for me State Farm had the lowest quote. Not sure about claim service.

  5. Bailey Callahan

    I compared a lot of rate quotes for a 1991 Volvo 740 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Ended up at about $80 every six months with AIG Insurance. It’s still not cheap enough.

    If you’re a decent driver and live in the vicinity of Minneapolis, MN, check out 21st Century. They seem to be cheaper. I just carry liability insurance.

    Liked the article. I’m in the north part of Mesa, AZ. Got rates from Sentry, Esurance, GEICO, and AIG Insurance for my 1991 Volvo 740 and saved around $60 a year. I even had a DUI years ago. I don’t insure for physical damage though.

    In Sioux Falls, SD, Progressive is a good choice. I’m a pretty good driver though. Not sure about claim service.

  9. Audie Sloan

    Here’s what I found out. I live on the south side of Houston, TX. Got car insurance rates from Progressive, Auto-Owners, Eastwood, and The General for my 740 and I’m now saving $12 a month. Thankfully I have a good driving record. Still almost need a second mortgage. My 740 doesn’t have full coverage.

    Checking in from Montgomery, Alabama. I got free prices from The General, AAA, Safeco, and a couple others for my 740 and I’m now saving $23 a month.

    I’m in the west part of Davenport, IA. Quoted with Amica, MetLife, and some smaller one I can’t remember the name of for my Volvo and I think I cut my rates about $20 each month. I think I’ll get rid of full coverage next time.

    Any GEICO or Encompass customers near Hartford, CT?

    Cheap is relative. Live in the eastern part of Billings, Montana. Received rates from Amica, Sentry, and Western Auto Insurance for my 740 and saved just over $70 a year. Not sure if rates are cheaper online or through an agent. When should I drop full coverage?

    Great site. I live in Reno, NV. Quoted a bunch of companies. Saved about $30 a month. 21st Century was the most affordable for me. Thankfully I’m not a high risk driver. I used their website to get prices. I think I’ll get rid of full coverage next time.
