Consumers need to take a look at other company’s rates yearly since prices are variable and change quite frequently. Even if you think you had the best rates for Matrix coverage at your last renewal you will most likely find a better premium rate today. Don’t believe everything you read about insurance online, but we’re going to give you some guaranteed methods to find cheap insurance.

Pricing affordable protection can be fairly easy. If you are insured now or are shopping for new coverage, you can learn to find the best rates while maintaining coverages. Drivers only need an understanding of the most efficient way to get comparison rates online.

How to compare insurance quotes

Getting cheap 2007 Toyota Matrix insurance pricing is actually easier than you may think. You just need to invest a few minutes to compare rate quotes to find the company with low cost insurance quotes. It is quite easy and can be accomplished by using one of the methods below.

  • One of the fastest ways to get the best comparison quotes is an all-inclusive rate comparison (click to open form in new window). This type of form saves time by eliminating multiple quote forms to each individual insurance company. One form will return price quotes from several companies.
  • A more time consuming way to obtain and compare quotes online requires visiting each company website and repeat the quote process again and again. For sake of this example, we’ll pretend you want to get rates from Auto-Owners, Allstate and State Farm. You would need to spend time on each company’s site and punch in your information repeatedly, which can take a lot of time. To view a list of companies in your area, click here.

Whichever way you use, try to keep the exact same deductibles and coverage limits on every quote. If you enter mixed coverages you will not be able to make an equal comparison.

Discounts for affordable insurance rates

Companies that sell car insurance don’t always advertise all their discounts in an easy-to-find place, so the list below gives a summary of a few of the more well known and the harder-to-find credits available to you.

  • Distant Student – College-age children who attend college more than 100 miles from home without a vehicle on campus may be insured at a cheaper rate.
  • Low Mileage Discounts – Fewer annual miles on your Toyota may enable drivers to earn cheaper prices.
  • Bundled Policy Discount – If you have multiple policies and place coverage with the same company you could save over 10 percent off each policy depending on the company.
  • Pay Early and Save – If you pay your entire premium ahead of time rather than paying monthly you may reduce your total bill.
  • Waiver for an Accident – Not really a discount, but some insurance companies will allow you to have one accident before hitting you with a surcharge if your claims history is clear before the accident.
  • Good Driver Discounts – Drivers without accidents can pay as much as 50% less for Matrix coverage than less cautious drivers.
  • Discounts for Federal Employees – Being employed by or retired from a federal job could provide a small rate reduction for Matrix coverage with select insurance companies.
  • Own a Home – Just owning your own home can get you a discount because of the fact that having a home is proof of financial responsibility.
  • Good Student Discount – A discount for being a good student could provide a savings of up to 20% or more. The discount lasts well after school through age 25.
  • Club Memberships – Having an affiliation with specific professional or occupational memberships or organizations can get you a small discount when shopping for insurance.

One thing to note about discounts is that most of the big mark downs will not be given to the entire policy premium. The majority will only reduce individual premiums such as comp or med pay. So when the math indicates adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way. Any qualifying discounts should help reduce your policy premiums.

Car insurance companies that may include these discounts include:

When getting a coverage quote, ask every insurance company which discounts they offer. Some discounts might not be available to policyholders in your area.

Tailor your insurance coverage to you

When buying proper insurance coverage, there really is no best way to insure your cars. Every insured’s situation is different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine if you might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Do I need added coverage for expensive stereo equipment?
  • What are the best liability limits?
  • What is high-risk coverage and where do I buy it?
  • Do I benefit by insuring my home with the same company?
  • At what point should I drop full coverage?
  • Should I have combined single limit or split liability limits?
  • What is the difference between comprehensive and collision coverage?
  • Do I have coverage when pulling a U-Haul trailer?
  • Am I covered by my employer’s commercial auto policy when driving my personal car for business?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to an agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form or click here for a list of insurance companies in your area. It only takes a few minutes and can help protect your family.

Car insurance coverage breakdown

Having a good grasp of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are the normal coverages found on the average car insurance policy.

Auto liability

Liability coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability can pay for things like funeral expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, medical expenses, pain and suffering and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.

Comprehensive auto coverage

Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, a broken windshield, hail damage, hitting a bird and fire damage. The most a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for immediate expenses such as rehabilitation expenses, prosthetic devices, EMT expenses and dental work. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover all vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Frequently the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Collision coverage

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting 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 claims such as backing into a parked car, sustaining damage from a pot hole and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
