Slash your car insurance rates with discounts

Some companies don’t always list every available discount in a way that’s easy to find, so the list below details some of the best known and also the lesser-known ways to save on car insurance.

  • Student in College – College-age children who attend college more than 100 miles from home and don’t have a car may be able to be covered for less.
  • Waiver for an Accident – This one is not really a discount per se, but some insurance companies will turn a blind eye to one accident without raising rates so long as you haven’t had any claims for a certain period of time.
  • Payment Method – If paying your policy premium upfront instead of monthly or quarterly installments you may have a lower total premium amount.
  • Student Driver Training – Require your teen driver to participate in a local driver’s education class if offered at their school.
  • Discount for Life Insurance – Larger car insurance companies have a break if you buy life insurance from them.
  • Employee of Federal Government – Federal government employees can earn a discount up to 10% for Eldorado coverage depending on your company.
  • Theft Deterent – Cars with anti-theft systems help deter theft and that can save you a little bit as well.
  • Paperwork-free – Certain car insurance companies may give you up to $50 for buying a policy and signing up on the internet.
  • Multi-policy Discount – If you have multiple policies and insure them both with the same insurance company you could earn a discount of approximately 10% to 15%.

Don’t be surprised that most of the big mark downs will not be given the the whole policy. A few only apply to individual premiums such as comp or med pay. So when it seems like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, you’re out of luck. Any qualifying discounts should help reduce the cost of your policy.

A few of the larger companies and a summarized list of policyholder discounts are included below.

  • Farm Bureau discounts include youthful driver, multi-policy, safe driver, good student, and 55 and retired.
  • MetLife has discounts for defensive driver, claim-free, good driver, multi-policy, accident-free, and good student.
  • Progressive may have discounts that include good student, online quote discount, multi-vehicle, online signing, homeowner, continuous coverage, and multi-policy.
  • AAA policyholders can earn discounts including good student, multi-policy, pay-in-full, good driver, anti-theft, and multi-car.
  • American Family offers discounts including multi-vehicle, air bags, mySafetyValet, good student, and TimeAway discount.
  • Geico offers premium reductions for anti-lock brakes, anti-theft, military active duty, emergency military deployment, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and air bags.
  • State Farm has savings for student away at school, anti-theft, good student, multiple policy, multiple autos, and passive restraint.

Before buying, ask every company which credits you are entitled to. Depending on the company, some discounts may not be available in every state. To see a list of companies with discount car insurance rates, click this link.

Car insurance coverage information

Knowing the specifics of car insurance can be of help when determining the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are the normal coverages found on most car insurance policies.

Collision protection

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Eldorado resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage pays for claims like backing into a parked car, scraping a guard rail, colliding with another moving vehicle, driving through your garage door and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.

Liability car insurance

This coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability insurance covers claims such as pain and suffering, funeral expenses, legal defense fees, structural damage and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from getting keyed, hail damage and falling objects. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and damage to your 2001 Cadillac Eldorado.

Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.

Medical expense insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for bills for things like doctor visits, funeral costs, ambulance fees and dental work. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible
