Save a ton with these insurance coverage discounts

Some insurers do not advertise their entire list of discounts in an easy-to-find place, so the list below gives a summary of a few of the more well known in addition to some of the lesser obvious credits available to lower your premiums when you buy car insurance online.

  • Claim Free – Drivers who stay claim-free pay much less compared to bad drivers.
  • College Student – Kids who are attending college and won’t have access to an insured vehicle can be insured at a reduced rate.
  • Smart Student Discounts – Getting good grades can save 20 to 25%. Earning this discount can benefit you up to age 25.
  • Safety Restraint Discount – Drivers who require all occupants to buckle up could save 15% off the PIP or medical payment premium.

Auto insurance coverage basics

Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find typical coverages found on the average auto insurance policy.

Liability auto insurance

Liability coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability insurance covers things like bail bonds, medical expenses and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.

Insurance for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage pay for short-term medical expenses for things like rehabilitation expenses, EMT expenses, dental work, funeral costs and ambulance fees. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Auto collision coverage

This covers damage to your T100 resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for things such as scraping a guard rail, hitting a mailbox, crashing into a ditch and crashing into a building. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage covers 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 pays for claims like damage from a tornado or hurricane, hail damage, damage from flooding, rock chips in glass and falling objects. The most 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 it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
