  • Bundle and Save – When you have multiple policies and insure them both with the same insurance company you will save at least 10 to 15 percent or more.
  • College Student – Kids who are enrolled in higher education away from home and won’t have access to an insured vehicle can receive lower rates.
  • Paper-free Discount – Certain insurance companies may give you up to $50 for completing your application online.
  • Savings for New Vehicles – Buying insurance coverage on a new vehicle can save up to 30% because new vehicles keep occupants safer.
  • Home Ownership Discount – Being a homeowner can earn you a little savings because maintaining a house requires personal responsibility.
  • Claim Free – Insureds with no claims or accidents can earn big discounts compared to bad drivers.
  • More Vehicles More Savings – Drivers who insure primary and secondary vehicles on the same insurance policy can get a discount on all vehicles.
  • Discounts for Seat Belt Usage – Buckling up and requiring all passengers to wear their seat belts could cut 10% or more off the personal injury premium cost.
  • Good Students Pay Less – This discount may save as much as 25% on a auto insurance quote. You can use this discount normally until age 25.

Don’t be shocked that some credits don’t apply to your bottom line cost. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as comp or med pay. Just because you may think adding up those discounts means a free policy, you won’t be that lucky.

Companies and a summarized list of policyholder discounts can be found below.

  • Progressive may include discounts for multi-policy, multi-vehicle, good student, online quote discount, continuous coverage, and online signing.
  • Farmers Insurance offers premium reductions for business and professional, teen driver, electronic funds transfer, mature driver, bundle discounts, early shopping, and alternative fuel.

  • Are split liability limits better than a combined single limit?

Insurance coverages explained

Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement.

Liability car insurance – This will cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see values of 100/300/100 which stand for a limit of $100,000 per injured person, $300,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability can pay for things such as attorney fees, court costs, medical expenses, loss of income and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Medical payments and PIP coverage – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for bills such as chiropractic care, ambulance fees, doctor visits and rehabilitation expenses. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Ford F-150 SVT Lightning.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Usually the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Comprehensive auto coverage – This coverage covers 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 things such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, theft and hitting a bird. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Collision coverage – This pays for damage to your F-150 SVT Lightning resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage pays for things like backing into a parked car, crashing into a ditch and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Coverage on a shoestring budget

Insureds switch companies for a variety of reasons including not issuing a premium refund, delays in paying claims, unfair underwriting practices and even an unsatisfactory settlement offer. Regardless of your reason, finding a great new company is not as difficult as it may seem.

Budget-conscious 1999 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning insurance can be sourced online and also from your neighborhood agents, so you need to quote auto insurance with both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. A few companies may not have rate quotes online and most of the time these smaller companies provide coverage only through independent agents.

As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, it’s not a good idea to buy poor coverage just to save money. There have been many cases where an insured dropped full coverage only to regret at claim time that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. The goal is to purchase a proper amount of coverage at the best price, but do not sacrifice coverage to save money.
