Lots of factors are part of the equation when you quote your car insurance policy. Some are obvious such as traffic violations, but other criteria are not quite as obvious like your vehicle usage or how safe your car is.
The list below includes a partial list of the pieces used by your company to calculate your rate level.
Auto insurance companies don’t always publicize the complete list of policy discounts in an easy-to-find place, so the next list breaks down some of the more common as well as the least known insurance savings.
It’s important to understand that most discounts do not apply the the whole policy. Most only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as comprehensive or collision. So even though it sounds like adding up those discounts means a free policy, it doesn’t quite work that way.

Having a good grasp of a car insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Usually the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
This will cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people in an accident. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
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 policy limits of 25/50/25 which stand for a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Another option is a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability can pay for things like emergency aid, court costs, pain and suffering and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses for things like pain medications, surgery, EMT expenses and dental work. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage pays for damage to your Safari Cargo caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things like sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a mailbox and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, fire damage, damage from flooding and vandalism. The maximum amount your car insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
