Drivers save money with these eight money-saving discounts

Car insurance companies don’t always publicize every disount available in a way that’s easy to find, so here is a list both the well known and the harder-to-find credits available to lower your premiums when you buy auto insurance online.

  • Bundled Policy Discount – If you combine your auto and home policies with one insurance company you could earn a discount of up to 20% off your total premium.
  • Telematics Discount – Insureds who allow their insurance company to study driving manner by using a telematic data system such as Allstate’s Drivewise and State Farm’s In-Drive system might get better premium rates if they show good driving skills.
  • Payment Discounts – By paying your entire bill at once instead of paying each month you could save 5% or more.
  • Save with More Vehicles Insured – Purchasing coverage when you have multiple cars or trucks with the same company can reduce the rates for all insured vehicles.
  • Sign Early and Save – A few insurance companies allow discounts for switching companies before your current coverage expires. It can save you around 10%.
  • Waiver for an Accident – but a few companies such as Liberty Mutual, Allstate and State Farm may permit one accident before raising your premiums as long as you don’t have any claims prior to being involved in the accident.
  • 55 and Retired – Older drivers may be able to get a slight reduction on a auto insurance quote on V50 insurance.
  • Discount for Low Mileage – Maintaining low annual mileage could earn cheaper prices.

Discounts reduce rates, but you should keep in mind that some credits don’t apply to all coverage premiums. Most cut specific coverage prices like comprehensive or collision. Even though the math looks like adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies don’t profit that way.

Auto insurance coverages 101

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Auto insurance terms can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.

Liability coverage

Liability insurance will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against claims like emergency aid, legal defense fees, medical services and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for immediate expenses for things like rehabilitation expenses, nursing services, funeral costs, prosthetic devices and chiropractic care. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive auto coverage

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like falling objects, damage from getting keyed, damage from a tornado or hurricane, rock chips in glass and hitting a deer. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Volvo V50.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Most of the time these coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Auto collision coverage

Collision coverage pays for damage to your V50 caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers things such as colliding with a tree, sustaining damage from a pot hole and damaging your car on a curb. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Shop. Compare. Save.

There are still a few companies who may not have price quotes online and these small, regional companies only sell coverage through local independent agencies. The cheapest 2007 Volvo V50 insurance is possible online in addition to local insurance agencies, so you should compare both to have the best selection.

Insureds change insurance companies for any number of reasons including delays in paying claims, not issuing a premium refund, policy non-renewal or even high rates after DUI convictions. No matter why you want to switch, choosing a new company can be pretty painless.

When buying insurance coverage, never buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. There have been many cases where consumers will sacrifice full coverage only to regret that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. Your goal should be to find the BEST coverage at an affordable rate, but do not sacrifice coverage to save money.
