Discounts for cheap insurance coverage rates

Not too many consumers would say insurance coverage is affordable, but you might already qualify for some discounts that many consumers don’t even know exist. Certain reductions will be credited at the time of quoting, but lesser-known reductions have to be asked about before they will apply.

  • Save with a New Car – Insuring a vehicle that is new can save you some money because newer models keep occupants safer.
  • Service Members Pay Less – Being on active deployment in the military may lower your insurance coverage rates slightly.
  • Senior Citizen Discount – Drivers over the age of 55 may be able to get a small discount on rates for 6 coverage.
  • Onboard Data Collection – Policyholders that allow driving data submission to study when and where they use their vehicle remotely such as Drivewise from Allstate or Snapshot from Progressive could see a rate decrease as long as the data is positive.
  • Pay Now and Pay Less – If you can afford to pay the entire bill instead of making monthly payments you can avoid monthly service charges.

Please keep in mind that most credits do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. A few only apply to individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. Despite the appearance that it’s possible to get free car insurance, insurance coverage companies aren’t that generous.

Larger insurance coverage companies and the discounts they provide can be read below.

  • Farmers Insurance offers premium reductions for teen driver, distant student, pay in full, switch companies, and homeowner.
  • State Farm has discounts for multiple autos, passive restraint, student away at school, safe vehicle, and good driver.
  • Liberty Mutual may offer discounts for newly retired, hybrid vehicle, new vehicle discount, good student, new graduate, and multi-policy.
  • MetLife has savings for accident-free, multi-policy, good driver, good student, claim-free, and defensive driver.
  • Progressive policyholders can earn discounts including homeowner, continuous coverage, online quote discount, multi-vehicle, and online signing.

Before purchasing a policy, check with all the companies to apply every possible discount. Discounts might not be offered on policies in your state.

Tailor your insurance coverage to you

When choosing coverage for your vehicles, there really is not a one size fits all plan. Each situation is unique.

These are some specific questions could help you determine whether or not you could use an agent’s help.

  • Is my cargo covered for damage or theft?
  • Do I have coverage when using my vehicle for my home business?
  • What is roadside assistance coverage?
  • Do I pay less for low miles?
  • Does my insurance cover my expensive audio equipment?
  • What is high-risk coverage and where do I buy it?
  • How much underlying liability do I need for an umbrella policy?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, you may need to chat with an agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, fill out this quick form.

Car insurance 101

Understanding the coverages of insurance helps when choosing appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Coverage for liability

Liability coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage protects against things like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects and attorney fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive insurance

This will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive can pay for things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird and hail damage. The most a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

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

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Normally the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Coverage for collisions

Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers things like crashing into a ditch, hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle and rolling your car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Coverage for medical expenses

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses for things like EMT expenses, rehabilitation expenses, prosthetic devices, doctor visits and nursing services. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
