1996 Porsche 911 Car Insurance Rates

Comparison shopping for cheap Driversinsurance coverage is always very difficult for drivers not familiar with comparing rates online. With such a big selection of agents and insurers available, it can quickly become a ton of work to find cheaper insurance coverage rates.

If you currently have a car insurance policy, you stand a good chance to be able to lower your premiums substantially using this strategy. Shopping for cheaper car insurance coverage is simple if you know the tricks. But consumers need to have an understanding of the way insurance companies market insurance on the web and use this information to your advantage.

How to get free insurance coverage quotes online

When comparison shopping, there are several ways of comparing price quotes from local insurance coverage companies. The recommended way to do a complete rate comparison consists of obtaining rate quotes online. This is quite simple and can be completed in just a few minutes using one of these methods.

The recommended way to get quotes would be an industry-wide quote request form (click to open form in new window). This type of form prevents you from having to do repetitive form entry for every prospective company. One form submission compares rates from several companies.It’s the quickest way to get rates.

A more time consuming way to find more affordable insurance is to manually visit each individual company website and fill out their own quote form. For example, we’ll assume you want to compare rates from Nationwide, GEICO and GMAC. In order to compare rates, you need to take the time to go to each site and punch in your information repeatedly, which is not fast way to get rate quotes.

The most difficult method of comparing rate quotes is to drive around to insurance agencies in your area. Buying insurance online eliminates this option unless you’re the type of person who wants the advice and guidance that you can only get from talking to an agent. Although, it is possible find lower rates online but buy the policy through an agent.

Take whichever approach you prefer, but ensure you’re using apples-to-apples deductibles and coverage limits for each quote you get. If you enter differing limits you will not be able to determine which rate is truly the best. Slightly different limits can make a big difference in price. Just keep in mind that getting more free quotes provides better odds of finding the best offered rates.

Affordable auto insurance quotes with discounts

Car insurance can cost a lot, but you might find some hidden discounts that can help lower your rates. Some trigger automatically at the time of purchase, but some discounts are required to be requested specifically prior to getting the savings.

  • Telematics Discount – Insureds who allow data collection to study when and where they use their vehicle by using a telematics device like Allstate’s Drivewise could see a rate decrease if they have good driving habits.
  • Homeowners Savings – Owning your own home or condo can get you a discount since owning and maintaining a home requires personal responsibility.
  • Drivers Education – Teen drivers should enroll in driver’s education as it will make them better drivers and lower rates.
  • Anti-theft System – Cars and trucks that have factory anti-theft systems can help prevent theft and earn discounts up to 10% off your insurance quote.
  • Senior Citizen Rates – Older drivers are able to get a slight reduction on a insurance quote for 911 coverage.

Discounts reduce rates, but you should keep in mind that most of the big mark downs will not be given to the entire policy premium. A few only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. So even though you would think you could get a free auto insurance policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way.

Tailor your car insurance coverage to you

When it comes to choosing adequate coverage, there isn’t really a best way to insure your cars. Every insured’s situation is different.

For instance, these questions can aid in determining whether your personal situation would benefit from professional advice.

  • Can I pay claims out-of-pocket if I buy high deductibles?
  • Will my vehicle be repaired with OEM or aftermarket parts?
  • Do I pay less if my vehicle is kept in my garage?
  • Do I need rental car coverage?
  • Is upholstery damage covered by car insurance?
  • Where can I find DUI or SR-22 insurance?
  • Am I covered if I hit a deer?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you may need to chat with a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, take a second and complete this form.

Save money with these tips

Many things are taken into consideration when premium rates are determined. Some of the criteria are obvious such as traffic violations, but other criteria are more obscure like where you live or how financially stable you are.An important part of buying insurance is that you know some of the elements that come into play when calculating your policy premiums. When you understand what positively or negatively impacts your premiums, this enables you to make decisions that could help you find lower premium levels.

The items below are a partial list of the pieces used by your company to calculate prices.

  • Low mileage costs less – The more miles you rack up on your Porsche each year the more you’ll pay to insure it. A lot of companies calculate rates based upon how you use the vehicle. Cars and trucks that are left in the garage get more affordable rates than those that get driven frequently. Ask your agent if your insurance coverage coverage states the proper vehicle usage, because improper ratings can cost you money. Incorrect rating for your 911 may be costing you higher rates.
  • Bump up comp and collision deductibles to lower rates – Physical damage protection, commonly called comprehensive (or other-than-collision) and collision coverage, covers your vehicle from damage. Some coverage claims are a dented fender, collision with an animal, and damage caused by flying debris. The deductibles represent how much money you are willing to pay if the claim is covered. The more money the insured is willing to pay, the lower your rates will be for 911 coverage.
  • Youthful drivers cost more – Older, more experienced drivers are more cautious drivers, cost insurance companies less in claims , and usually have better credit.Youthful drivers have been known to get distracted easily when at the wheel of a vehicle and because of this, their insurance coverage rates are much higher.
  • Obey driving laws and save – Having a clean driving record influences premium rates substantially. Having just one moving violation can increase rates by twenty percent. Good drivers get better rates compared to drivers with tickets. People who have license-revoking tickets such as hit and run, DWI or reckless driving convictions may find that they have to to prove financial responsibility with their state’s licensing department in order to prevent a license revocation.
  • Urban residents pay more – Having an address in smaller towns and rural areas of the country is a good thing when buying insurance coverage. People in densly populated areas have to deal with more road rage incidents and longer commute times. Fewer drivers and short commutes means reduced accidents in addition to lower liability claims
  • Good credit means lower rates – Having a good credit score is likely to be a major factor in determining your rates. If your credit leaves room for improvement, you may save money insuring your 1996 Porsche 911 by improving your credit score. Insureds that have good credit tend to be more responsible and file fewer claims as compared to drivers with lower credit scores.
  • File a insurance claims and pay more – Car insurance companies give cheaper rates to policyholders who file claims infrequently. If you are a frequent claim filer, you can pretty much guarantee either higher rates or even cancellation. Your car insurance is meant to be used in the event of claims that pose a financial burden.
  • lapses raise prices – Going without insurance is a fast way to pay more for insurance coverage. Not only will you pay higher rates, failure to provide proof of insurance can result in a revoked license or a big fine.

Car insurance coverages explained

Learning about specific coverages of car insurance helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.

Collision insurance

This will pay to fix damage to your 911 caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers claims like rolling your car, sideswiping another vehicle, driving through your garage door, crashing into a building and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Comprehensive coverage

This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like damage from getting keyed, hitting a deer, damage from a tornado or hurricane, fire damage and falling objects. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for bills for chiropractic care, prosthetic devices, funeral costs and pain medications. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Liability coverages

This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability can pay for things such as legal defense fees, loss of income and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Porsche 911.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

Pennies from heaven

While you’re price shopping online, make sure you don’t reduce coverage to reduce premium. There have been many cases where an accident victim reduced collision coverage only to find out that it was a big mistake. The ultimate goal is to find the BEST coverage for the lowest price.
