The itemized list below are some of the most common factors companies use to determine your prices.
Popular insurance providers such as State Farm, Geico and Progressive endlessly run ads on TV and radio. They all make an identical promise of big savings if you move your coverage. That’s great but how can every company lower your rates? It’s all in the numbers.
All companies can use profiling for the type of driver that makes them money. For example, a profitable insured should be between 25 and 40, is a homeowner, and has a short commute. Any customer that matches those criteria gets the lowest rates as well as cut their rates if they switch.
Drivers who do not fit this ideal profile will have to pay a higher premium which results in business going elsewhere. The trick is to say “drivers who switch” not “everybody who quotes” save that much money. That’s why insurance companies can confidently advertise the savings. This really emphasizes why it is so important to compare quotes as often as possible. It’s just too difficult to predict which insurance company will provide you with the cheapest premium rates.
Knowing the specifics of your insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people that is your fault. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability can pay for things such as court costs, repair costs for stationary objects, bail bonds, structural damage and medical expenses. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Collision coverage pays for damage to your TSX from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things such as crashing into a building, backing into a parked car and colliding with another moving vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as fire damage, vandalism, damage from getting keyed, rock chips in glass and hitting a deer. The most a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses like EMT expenses, X-ray expenses, hospital visits and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to you and your occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your 2007 Acura TSX.

While you’re price shopping online, make sure you don’t reduce needed coverages to save money.
