Cheap 1993 Acura Integra Insurance Rates

Perplexed by the dozens of car insurance companies available to you? You’re not alone. Drivers have so many options that it can easily turn into a lot of work to find the best premium rates.

The purpose of this post is to introduce you to how car insurance quotes work and some tricks to saving. If you currently have a car insurance policy, you should be able to lower your premiums substantially using these tips. But car owners do need to know the way companies price online insurance.

Insurance price influencing factors

Lots of things are used when you get a price on insurance. A few of the factors are predictable like an MVR report, but other factors are not as apparent like where you live or how financially stable you are.Consumers need to have an understanding of a few of the rating criteria that play a part in calculating your policy premiums. When you understand what impacts premium levels, this enables informed choices that may result in lower rates.

  • When should you file a policy claims? – Auto insurance companies give better rates to policyholders who do not file claims often. If you tend to file frequent claims, you can pretty much guarantee higher premiums or even policy non-renewal. Auto insurance is meant to be used in the event of claims that you cannot pay yourself.
  • Cars with good safety ratings save money – Safer cars tend to have lower insurance rates. These vehicles help reduce the chance of injuries in an accident and any reduction in injury severity translates directly to fewer claims which can mean better rates for you. If the Acura Integra is rated at least four stars on Safercar.gov or an “acceptable” rating on iihs.org you are probably receiving a discount.
  • Never let your insurance lapse – Allowing your coverage to lapse is a guaranteed way to drive up your policy premiums. Not only will you pay more, failure to provide proof of insurance could earn you a fine, jail time, or a revoked license.
  • Low deductibles can be expensive – Physical damage coverage, also called comprehensive and collision insurance, is used to repair damage to your Acura. Examples of covered claims would be running into the backend of another car, collision with an animal, and windstorm damage. The deductibles you choose represent how much money you are required to pay in the event of a claim. The more damage repair cost you pay before a claim is paid (deductible), the better rate you will receive on Integra coverage.
  • Good drivers have lower rates – Just one moving violation can bump up the cost substantially. Careful drivers pay less for auto insurance than bad drivers. Drivers who get multiple violations like DUI or reckless driving may find that they have to to submit a SR-22 or proof of financial responsibility with their state motor vehicle department in order to legally drive a vehicle.

Buy car insurance online

There are several ways to compare car insurance prices but some are less labor-intensive and much quicker. You could waste time discussing policy coverages with agents in your area, or you can stay home and use the internet to achieve your goal.

Many popular insurance companies enroll in a system where insurance shoppers complete one form, and at least one company then returns a price quote for coverage. This eliminates the need for quotation requests for every car insurance company.

The one downside to pricing coverage this way is you can’t choose which carriers you want pricing from. So if you prefer to choose specific providers to compare prices, we put together a list of car insurance companies in your area. View list of insurance companies.

It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but do your best to enter equivalent information for each price quote. If each company quotes mixed coverages then you won’t be able to determine which company has the best rates. Slightly different coverages can make a big difference in price. Just keep in mind that comparing a large number of companies will enable you to find more affordable insurance. Not every company provides quotes online, so you should also compare rates from them, too.

Do insurance companies bend the truth?

Well-known insurance companies like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive constantly bombard you with ads in print and on television. All the ads state the claim of big savings if you get a free insurance quote and switch your coverage to them. How does every insurance company make almost identical claims? It’s all in the wording.

Different companies have specific criteria for a prospective insured that will not have excessive claims. For example, this type of driver might have to be over age 30, has a clear driving record, and drives a safe vehicle. Any person who fits that profile receives the best car insurance rates and have a good chance to pay quite a bit less when switching companies.

Potential insureds who are not a match for this stringent profile will probably have to pay more expensive rates and this results in the prospect going elsewhere. If you pay attention, the ads say “drivers who switch” not “everybody who quotes” will save that much if they switch. This is how companies can truthfully lure you into getting a quote.

This emphasizes why it’s extremely important to do a quote comparison often. It’s not possible to predict which company will provide you with the cheapest rates.

Take advantage of every insurance coverage discount

Car insurance is not cheap, but companies offer discounts that can help lower your rates. Certain discounts will be applied at the time of purchase, but a few need to be manually applied before being credited.

  • Membership in Organizations – Participating in qualifying employment or professional organizations is a simple method to lower premiums when shopping for insurance coverage.
  • Anti-lock Brakes – Cars, trucks, and SUVs with ABS and/or traction control prevent accidents and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
  • Good Driver Discount – Drivers who avoid accidents can save up to 40% or more on their insurance quote on Integra coverage compared to rates paid by drivers with frequent claims.
  • Distant College Student Discount – Kids who are enrolled in higher education away from home and do not have access to a covered vehicle could qualify for this discount.
  • Discount for Life Insurance – Select insurance carriers reward you with a break if you buy some life insurance in addition to your auto policy.
  • Telematics Data – Policyholders that allow driving data collection to scrutinize driving patterns by using a telematics device such as Snapshot from Progressive or Drivewise from Allstate may get a rate reduction if they exhibit good driving behavior.
  • Federal Employees – Active or former government employment may qualify for a discount when you quote insurance on Integra coverage with certain companies.
  • Paperwork-free – A handful of insurance coverage companies may give you up to $50 for buying a policy and signing up digitally online.
  • Payment Discounts – By making one initial payment rather than paying in monthly installments you may reduce your total bill.
  • Seat Belts Save – Requiring all passengers to buckle up could cut 10% or more on medical payment and PIP coverage.

Please keep in mind that most discounts do not apply to your bottom line cost. The majority will only reduce specific coverage prices like comprehensive or collision. Even though the math looks like you could get a free insurance coverage policy, it’s just not the way it works.

A list of companies and some of the discounts can be read below.

  • State Farm discounts include Steer Clear safe driver discount, accident-free, safe vehicle, student away at school, good student, multiple autos, and multiple policy.
  • GEICO has discounts for emergency military deployment, five-year accident-free, driver training, military active duty, anti-theft, and defensive driver.
  • Progressive offers premium reductions for multi-policy, online signing, online quote discount, multi-vehicle, continuous coverage, homeowner, and good student.
  • 21st Century offers discounts for good student, automatic seat belts, air bags, teen driver, and theft prevention.
  • American Family policyholders can earn discounts including defensive driver, mySafetyValet, TimeAway discount, early bird, and good driver.
  • The Hartford may include discounts for defensive driver, good student, bundle, vehicle fuel type, air bag, anti-theft, and driver training.
  • AAA may have discounts that include AAA membership discount, multi-car, education and occupation, good student, multi-policy, and good driver.

When quoting, ask all the companies which discounts you may be entitled to. Some discounts listed above may not apply to policyholders in your area. If you would like to view companies that provide some of the discounts listed above, click this link.

Insurance coverages explained

Having a good grasp of insurance can be of help when determining the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

UM/UIM Coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Acura Integra.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Usually the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.

Collision protection

This will pay to fix damage to your Integra caused by collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for claims like sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with a tree, hitting a parking meter, sustaining damage from a pot hole and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as damage from getting keyed, hitting a bird and damage from flooding. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Medical costs insurance

Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for bills for nursing services, dental work, EMT expenses and surgery. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Liability car insurance

Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show liability limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Occasionally you may see a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, funeral expenses, medical expenses and legal defense fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.

A tidy conclusion

Consumers who switch companies do it for many reasons like an unsatisfactory settlement offer, questionable increases in premium, policy cancellation or delays in paying claims. No matter why you want to switch, finding the right car insurance provider is easier than you think.
