Companies don’t always advertise every policy discount in an easy-to-find place, so the list below contains some of the best known and the more hidden ways to save on insurance.
A little disclaimer on discounts, some of the credits will not apply to the entire policy premium. The majority will only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as comprehensive or collision.

Understanding the coverages of insurance aids in choosing the right coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are the usual coverages found on most insurance policies.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage
This protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Saturn Outlook.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Collision insurance covers damage to your Outlook from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision can pay for claims like sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a ditch, rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb and crashing into a building. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
Medical expense coverage
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for bills such as chiropractic care, EMT expenses, nursing services and hospital visits. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Liability car insurance
This will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t 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. Your policy might show limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability insurance covers things such as repair costs for stationary objects, attorney fees, legal defense fees and medical services. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
This will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, rock chips in glass, falling objects, a broken windshield and damage from getting keyed. The most a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
