Numerous car insurance companies battle for your insurance dollar, so it can be very hard to choose a insurance company and get the best coverage at the lowest rate

More discounts mean lower-cost premiums

Some insurers don’t always publicize the complete list of policy discounts very well, so we took the time to find both well-publicized and also the more inconspicuous discounts that you can inquire about if you buy insurance online. If you don’t get every credit available, you are not getting the best rate possible.

  • Professional Memberships – Being in certain professional organizations is a good way to get lower rates on your next insurance statement.
  • Safety Restraint Discount – Drivers who require all occupants to use a seat belt may be able to save a few bucks off PIP or medical payments premium.
  • Own a Home – Just being a homeowner may trigger a policy discount on insurance because it means you have a higher level of financial diligence.
  • Pay Early and Save – If you pay your entire premium ahead of time rather than spreading payments over time you could save up to 5%.
  • Good Drivers – Insureds without accidents could pay up to 40% less on Outlook insurance compared to accident prone drivers.
  • Discount for Passive Restraints – Vehicles with factory air bags or motorized seat belts may earn rate discounts of up to 25% or more.
  • Defensive Driver – Successfully completing a course in defensive driving could save 5% or more and easily pay for the cost of the class.
  • Distant Student Discount – who are enrolled in a college that is more than 100 miles from home and don’t have a car may qualify for this discount.
  • Driving Data Discount – Insureds who allow driving data collection to monitor their driving habits by using a telematics device such as Progressive’s Snapshot and State Farm’s In-Drive could see a rate decrease as long as they are good drivers.
  • Anti-lock Brake System – Cars that have steering control and anti-lock brakes are much safer to drive and will save you 10% or more.

You can save money using discounts, but many deductions do not apply to your bottom line cost. A few only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as comprehensive or collision. So even though they make it sound like adding up those discounts means a free policy, it just doesn’t work that way. But any discount will bring down the cost of coverage.

How to find low cost insurance

When comparison shopping, there are several ways to compare rate quotes from many insurance companies in your state. The easiest way to comparison shop is simply to get online rate quotes. This is very easy and can be done in a couple of different ways.

The easiest and least time consuming way to find low rates is an all-inclusive rate comparison (click to open form in new window). This form eliminates the need for repetitive form submissions for every prospective company. In just a few minutes this one form will return price quotes from multiple companies.

A different way to find more affordable insurance is going to the website for every company you want to comare and fill out their own quote form. For examples sake, we’ll pretend you want to compare prices for Allstate, Esurance and American Family. To get each rate you have to spend time going to each site individually and repeatedly enter your information, which can take a lot of time. For a list of companies in your area, click here.

The hardest method to find cheaper rates is physically going to insurance agents’ offices. Buying insurance online has made agencies unnecessary unless your situation requires the professional advice of a local agent. If you prefer, some companies allow you to price shop your coverage online and still use a local agent.

You can use whichever method you prefer to find lower rates, just make absolute certain that you use nearly identical quote data with each company. If you compare unequal deductibles or liability limits then you won’t be able to make an equal comparison. Just a small difference in coverages could skew the results. And when quoting insurance, remember that more quotes helps improve the odds of finding a lower rate than you’re paying now. Not every company allows you to get quotes online, so you should also compare rates from them, too.

How your Outlook insurance premiums are determined

When buying insurance coverage it’s important to understand the rating factors that help determine your insurance coverage rates. If you understand what determines base rates, this helps enable you to make changes that may result in much lower annual insurance costs. Lots of things are part of the calculation when you get your auto insurance bill. Some factors are common sense like a motor vehicle report, although others are less obvious like your vehicle usage or how financially stable you are.

  • Always keep your insurance coverage in place – Having a gap between insurance policy dates can be a fast way to pay more for insurance coverage. Not only will you pay higher rates, the inability to provide proof of insurance could result in a steep fine or even jail time.
  • Deter theft and save money – Selecting a car model with a theft deterrent system can help bring down rates. Theft prevention devices such as OnStar found on GM vehicles, advanced tracking like LoJack, and vehicle immobilization systems all hinder auto theft and help lower rates.
  • Teenage drivers cost more – Inexperience drivers are proven to get distracted easily in a vehicle so insurance coverage rates are higher. Mature drivers are more responsible, are lower risk to insure and are safer drivers.
  • Extra coverages that may not be needed – There are a lot of add-on coverages that may not really be needed when buying insurance coverage. Insurance for things like replacement cost coverage, better glass coverage, and extra equipment coverage are examples of these. They may seem good when you first buy your policy, but if you don’t need them consider taking them off your policy.
  • Your stress level may be raising your prices – Did you know your job can affect your rates? Occupations such as fire fighters, architects and miners usually pay higher rates than the rest of us due to job stress and lots of time spent at work. On the other hand, careers such as actors, historians and retirees receive lower rates on Outlook insurance.

It’s not one size fits all

When choosing the right insurance coverage, there really is no perfect coverage plan. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s so your insurance should reflect that For instance, these questions could help you determine if you may require specific advice.

  • Can my teen driver be rated on a liability-only vehicle?
  • Is my nanny covered when driving my vehicle?
  • Do I need added coverage for expensive stereo equipment?
  • Is my business laptop covered if it gets stolen from my vehicle?
  • If my 2007 Saturn Outlook is totaled, can I afford another vehicle?
  • Can I pay claims out-of-pocket if I buy high deductibles?
  • When would I need additional glass coverage?
  • Who is covered by my policy?
  • How much underlying liability do I need for an umbrella policy?
  • Do I need PIP (personal injury protection) coverage in my state?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, simply complete this short form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier

Save 15 percent in 15 minutes? Is it for real?

21st Century, Allstate and State Farm endlessly run ads in print and on television. All the companies make the same claim that drivers can save some big amount after switching to them. How does every car insurance company cost less than your current company?

Car insurance companies provide the lowest rates for the type of customer that makes them money. One example of a preferred risk could possibly be between the ages of 30 and 45, has a low-risk occupation, and has a high credit rating. A driver that hits that “sweet spot” receive the lowest rate quotes and as a result will probably cut their rates substantially.

Drivers who do not meet those criteria will see a higher premium which leads to the customer not purchasing. The ads say “people who switch” not “everyone who quotes” save that much. That’s the way insurance companies can make it sound like they have such great premium rates.

Because of the profiling, you really should do a price quote comparison at every renewal. It’s just not possible to know with any certainty which company will give you lower auto insurance rates than your current company.

Auto insurance coverage information

Understanding the coverages of auto insurance can be of help when determining the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are the usual coverages available from auto insurance companies.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage – Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Due to the fact that many drivers 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 should not be overlooked. Most of the time these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as hitting a bird, theft, a broken windshield and fire damage. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Coverage for medical payments – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like surgery, hospital visits, pain medications, prosthetic devices and funeral costs. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Collision coverages – Collision coverage pays for damage to your Outlook from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for claims such as rolling your car, crashing into a ditch, driving through your garage door and damaging your car on a curb. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Liability auto insurance – This protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show values of 100/300/100 which means a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability can pay for claims such as attorney fees, legal defense fees and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but you should buy higher limits if possible.

Knowledge is power

When trying to cut insurance costs, you should never reduce needed coverages to save money. In too many instances, consumers will sacrifice liability limits or collision coverage to discover at claim time that they should have had better coverage. Your aim should be to buy a smart amount of coverage at the lowest possible cost, but don’t skip important coverages to save money.

We just showed you many tips how you can get a better price on 2007 Saturn Outlook insurance. The key concept to understand is the more rate quotes you have, the better your chances of lowering your car insurance rates. Consumers may even find the most savings is with a lesser-known regional company. Smaller companies may only write in your state and offer lower car insurance rates as compared to the big name companies such as State Farm or Progressive.
