Block out anything you think you know about insurance because it’s time to teach you how to use the internet to reduce your cost while increasing coverage.

Four tips to get lower-cost insurance rates

Multiple criteria are part of the equation when quoting car insurance. A few of the factors are predictable such as your driving history, although others are less apparent such as your marital status or your vehicle rating.An important part of buying insurance is that you know the factors that come into play when calculating insurance rates. If you know what positively or negatively impacts your premiums, this allows you to make educated decisions that may result in much lower annual insurance costs.

  • Do thieves like your car? – Choosing to buy a car with anti-theft technology or alarm system can earn a premium discount. Theft deterrent systems such as vehicle immobilizer systems, General Motors OnStar and LoJack tracking systems all help stop car theft and help bring rates down.
  • Your credit score is important – Having a bad credit history will be a significant factor in determining what you pay for insurance. If your credit score is low, you may save money insuring your 1992 Toyota Paseo if you clean up your credit. Consumers who have excellent credit scores tend to be better drivers and file fewer claims than those with lower ratings.
  • Pay less with a high NHTSA crash test rating – Vehicles with good safety scores tend to have better insurance rates. The safest vehicles reduce occupant injuries and lower injury rates translates into fewer and smaller insurance claims which can mean better rates for you. If your Toyota Paseo earned at least four stars on Safercar.gov it may be receiving lower rates.
  • High insurance claims frequency drives up prices – If you file a lot of claims you can look forward to higher rates. Auto insurance companies award cheaper rates to people that do not abuse their auto insurance. Your insurance policy is intended to be relied upon for claims that you cannot pay yourself.

How to buy car insurance

All the larger car insurance companies allow consumers to get pricing online. Getting prices online is quite simple because it’s just a matter of typing in the amount of coverage you want as requested by the quote form. Upon sending the form, the company’s rating system automatically retrieves your driving record and credit report and quotes a price determined by many factors. This streamlines rate comparisons, but the process of having to visit several different sites and type in the same information is monotonous and tiresome. But it’s absolutely necessary to get many rate quotes if you want to get the lowest car insurance rates.

A better way to compare rates uses one simple form that analyzes rates from a lot of companies. It saves time, helps eliminate reptitive entry, and makes online price comparison much more enjoyable. As soon as you send your information, it is rated with multiple companies and you can pick any of the quotes that you receive. If one or more price quotes are lower than your current rates, it’s easy to complete the application and purchase the new policy. It only takes a few minutes and you will know how your current rates stack up.

To compare pricing, click here and submit the form. If you have your current policy handy, we recommend you replicate coverages and limits exactly as shown on your declarations page. Doing this assures you will have comparison quotes using the exact same coverages.

Smaller companies may have the best rates

Big name companies like GEICO, State Farm and Progressive continually stream television and radio advertisements. They all seem to have a common claim of big savings if you just switch to them. How is it plausible that every one can give you a lower rate?

Insurance providers give the best rates for the type of customer that earns them the most money. For example, this type of risk profile might be between the ages of 30 and 50, has no tickets, and drives a safe vehicle. Any driver that hits that “sweet spot” receive the lowest rate quotes and will also save quite a bit of money when switching.

People who don’t measure up to those criteria will be charged higher premium rates which translates to the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ad wording is “customers that switch” not “everyone who quotes” save that much money. That’s why companies can truthfully make those claims. This really emphasizes why you really need to get a wide range of price quotes. It’s impossible to know which auto insurance company will have the lowest rate quotes.

Save money by taking advantage of discounts

Auto insurance companies do not advertise every discount they offer very clearly, so we researched a few of the more common as well as some of the hidden credits available to lower your premiums when you buy auto insurance online.

  • Federal Employees – Simply working for the federal government could provide a small rate reduction on Paseo insurance but check with your company.
  • Resident Student – who attend college more than 100 miles from home without a vehicle on campus can be insured at a reduced rate.
  • Buy New and Save – Buying insurance on a new vehicle can cost up to 25% less compared to insuring an older model.
  • ABS Braking Discount – Vehicles with ABS braking systems or traction control have fewer accidents so you can save 10 percent or more.
  • Sign Early and Save – Some larger companies give discounts for switching to them early. This can save 10% or more.
  • Anti-theft Discount – Vehicles that have factory alarm systems and tracking devices help deter theft and can earn a small discount on your policy.
  • Safety Course Discount – Taking a course in safe driver is a good idea and can lower rates if your company offers it.
  • Accident Forgiveness Coverage – Not really a discount, but some insurance companies will forgive one accident without raising rates so long as you haven’t had any claims for a certain period of time.

As a sidenote, most credits do not apply to all coverage premiums. The majority will only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. So despite the fact that it appears you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies wouldn’t make money that way. Any qualifying discounts will definitely reduce your overall premium however.

A few of the larger companies and some of the discounts are shown below.

  • Progressive policyholders can earn discounts including multi-policy, multi-vehicle, continuous coverage, good student, online signing, homeowner, and online quote discount.
  • AAA offers premium reductions for anti-theft, multi-car, AAA membership discount, pay-in-full, education and occupation, and good driver.
  • Farmers Insurance may include discounts for distant student, youthful driver, teen driver, business and professional, multi-car, early shopping, and switch companies.
  • GEICO may offer discounts for seat belt use, air bags, federal employee, anti-lock brakes, and anti-theft.
  • Esurance offers discounts for multi-car, anti-theft, DriveSense, emergency road assistance, and paid-in-full.
  • SAFECO has discounts for teen safe driver, drive less, safe driver, multi-car, and anti-lock brakes.
  • State Farm has savings for Steer Clear safe driver discount, good driver, multiple autos, Drive Safe & Save, anti-theft, defensive driving training, and driver’s education.

If you need cheap auto insurance quotes, ask all the companies the best way to save money. Depending on the company, some discounts might not be offered on policies in your area. To view insurers who offer online insurance coverage quotes, follow this link.

How much insurance coverage do I need?

When it comes to choosing adequate coverage, there really is no best way to insure your cars. Everyone’s situation is a little different so this has to be addressed. For instance, these questions can aid in determining whether or not you may require specific advice.

  • Do I need replacement cost coverage on my 1992 Toyota Paseo?
  • Are rental cars covered under my policy?
  • Do I need replacement cost coverage?
  • Do I pay less for low miles?
  • How high should my uninsured/underinsured coverage be in my state?
  • How do I file an SR-22 for a DUI in my state?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply, you might consider talking to an agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, take a second and complete this form or click here for a list of insurance coverage companies in your area.

Coverages available on your insurance policy

Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are the usual coverages available from insurance companies.

Medical expense insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for expenses such as ambulance fees, funeral costs, nursing services, doctor visits and hospital visits. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Liability car insurance

Liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see limits of 50/100/50 that translate to a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and property damage coverage for $50,000.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as attorney fees, bail bonds, medical services and court costs. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision insurance

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Paseo resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage protects against claims like crashing into a building, sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with another moving vehicle and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism and hail damage. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Toyota Paseo.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Never pay more for less

As you prepare to switch companies, it’s a bad idea to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In many cases, drivers have reduced collision coverage only to find out they didn’t have enough coverage. Your focus should be to buy a smart amount of coverage at the lowest possible cost but still have enough coverage for asset protection.

Lower-priced 1992 Toyota Paseo insurance is available online and from local insurance agents, so get free auto insurance quotes from both of them so you have a total pricing picture. Some insurance companies may not offer internet price quotes and most of the time these smaller companies prefer to sell through independent agents.
