One minor caviat to comparing rates this way is you don’t know exactly the companies to get pricing from. If you prefer to choose from a list of companies to receive pricing from, we have a listing of low cost auto insurance companies in your area. Click here for list of insurance companies.
Compare rates however you want, just be certain you are entering the same coverage information for every quote you compare. If each company quotes unequal deductibles or liability limits it will be nearly impossible to get a fair rate comparison.
Some providers don’t always publicize every policy discount very well, so the following list contains a few of the more common and the more hidden credits available to lower your premiums when you buy insurance coverage online. If you aren’t receiving every discount possible, you are just wasting money.
As is typical with insurance, some credits don’t apply to the overall cost of the policy. Some only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like comprehensive or collision. So when it seems like adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies don’t profit that way.
The best insurance companies and a summarized list of policyholder discounts are detailed below.
If you need the cheapest insurance coverage quotes, ask every prospective company which discounts can lower your rates. Some of the earlier mentioned discounts might not be offered everywhere. To see a list of companies who offer free insurance quotes, follow this link.
When choosing adequate coverage, there isn’t really a one size fits all plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different.
Here are some questions about coverages that can help discover if your situation might need professional guidance.
If it’s difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, take a second and complete this form. It is quick, free and you can get the answers you need.
Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Liability – Liability coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have liability limits of 100/300/100 which stand for a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as loss of income, legal defense fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Cadillac Escalade ESV.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.
Medical expense coverage – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for expenses such as prosthetic devices, surgery, rehabilitation expenses, pain medications and hospital visits. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Comprehensive protection – This pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like hitting a bird, vandalism and a broken windshield. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Collision coverages – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against things such as crashing into a building, rolling your car, colliding with a tree and colliding with another moving vehicle. 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 choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
When searching for low cost insurance coverage quotes, it’s very important that you do not sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There are many occasions where someone sacrificed full coverage and learned later that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. Your aim should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at an affordable rate, but do not skimp to save money.
