How to shop insurance online

The are a couple different ways to get quotes from insurance companies in your area. The best method to find cheaper 2005 Saab 9-5 rates is to jump online and get quotes. This is very easy and can be done using a couple different methods.

The recommended way to find low rates would be an industry-wide quote request form like this one (opens in new window). This type of form prevents you from having to do separate quotes for every insurance company. One simple form gets insurance cost estimates from all major companies. Recommended for those who want to invest the least amount of time.

A less efficient way to get quotes online consists of going to each company’s website and request a quote. For instance, let’s say you are doing a rate comparison from State Farm, Liberty Mutual and Allstate. To do that, you would have to spend time going to each site individually to enter your coverage information, which is not fast way to get rate quotes.

Whichever way you use, make sure you use apples-to-apples coverages and limits for each comparison quote. If your comparisons have higher or lower deductibles then you won’t be able to find the best deal for your Saab 9-5. Quoting even small variations in limits may cause a big price difference. Just keep in mind that comparing a large number of companies provides better odds of finding more affordable insurance. Some insurance companies are not set up to provide online rate quotes, so it’s recommended that you also compare prices on coverage from those companies, too.

What is the best auto insurance coverage?

When buying the best auto insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there isn’t really a “perfect” insurance plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different.

For example, these questions can aid in determining if your situation might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Am I getting all the discounts available?
  • Can my teen drive my company car?
  • Will I be non-renewed for getting a DUI or other conviction?
  • What is the ISO rating for a 2005 Saab 9-5?
  • How high should my medical payments coverage be?
  • I don’t drive much so do I pay less?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my 2005 Saab 9-5?
  • Am I covered if I crash into my own garage door?
  • Am I covered when driving on a suspended license?
  • Is my ex-spouse still covered by my policy?

If you’re not sure about those questions then you might want to talk to an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, take a second and complete this form.

Car insurance coverages explained

Knowing the specifics of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your 2005 Saab 9-5.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.

Collision coverage

Collision insurance covers damage to your 9-5 resulting from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as driving through your garage door, crashing into a ditch, crashing into a building and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.

Liability car insurance

Liability insurance can cover damage that occurs to other people or property by causing an accident. It protects you from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Coverage consists of three different 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 means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability can pay for things such as emergency aid, funeral expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering and medical services. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as vandalism, damage from getting keyed, a broken windshield and theft. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Medical expense insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for bills such as funeral costs, prosthetic devices and surgery. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers both the driver and occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

    If you have a clean record and live around Norfolk, Virginia, check out State Farm. You might get cheaper rates. I have a couple other vehicles on the policy. Wish I didn’t have to insure at all.

    Thanks for putting this site together. From Mesa, Arizona. I got free quotes from 21st Century, GMAC, and Esurance for my Saab and saved $101 a year. I’m a pretty low risk driver. It’s still not cheap enough.

    Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Got car insurance rates from State Farm, Auto-Owners, and Eastwood for my Saab and I think I saved about $40 each month. Left Nationwide to switch. Wish I didn’t have to insure at all.

    I’m in Hilo, HI. I got free quotes with AAA, MetLife, and some smaller one I can’t remember the name of for my 2005 Saab 9-5 and I think I am saving around $50 each month. Teenage drivers are expensive! It’s easy to compare rates online now.

    Not sure if this is cheap. Located in Hartford, CT. I don’t recall every quote but I ended up saving about $50 each month. Have an at-fault accident tho. I recommend comparing lots of rates.

    Thought I’d throw in my experience. I’m in the north part of Worcester, Massachusetts. Don’t remember every company but I ended up saving about $60 each month. Good multi-policy discounts.
