Some insurers do not list the complete list of policy discounts very well, so the list below contains some of the more common as well as the least known savings tricks you should be using when you buy auto insurance online.
While discounts sound great, it’s important to understand that most credits do not apply to the entire policy premium. A few only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like liability, collision or medical payments. So even though they make it sound like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies wouldn’t make money that way.
Large insurance coverage companies and the discounts they provide are detailed below.
It’s a good idea to ask each insurance company which discounts can lower your rates. Some discounts listed above may not apply to policyholders in your area. For a list of providers who offer cheap insurance coverage quotes, follow this link.

After you complete the form, the company’s rating system pulls your credit score and driving record and generates a price based on many factors.

It saves time, requires less work, and makes price shopping online much more enjoyable and efficient.

When it comes to choosing the best insurance coverage coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is no single plan that fits everyone. Every situation is different.
For example, these questions can help discover if your insurance needs would benefit from an agent’s advice.

Knowing the specifics of a car insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Collision – Collision coverage pays for damage to your TSX resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for things such as crashing into a ditch, driving through your garage door, sideswiping another vehicle and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Medical costs insurance – Med pay and PIP coverage pay for expenses for chiropractic care, doctor visits and nursing services. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Liability car insurance – This coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property that is your fault. This coverage protects you from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see values 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 property damage coverage for $50,000. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage pays for things such as loss of income, attorney 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.
UM/UIM Coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Acura TSX.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Normally these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as rock chips in glass, damage from getting keyed, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and a broken windshield. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
When trying to cut insurance costs, it’s not a good idea to sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. Too many times, an accident victim reduced comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to find out that it was a big mistake. The aim is to get the best coverage possible for the lowest cost, but do not skimp to save money.
The cheapest 2009 Acura TSX insurance is definitely available online in addition to local insurance agencies, so you need to shop auto insurance with both so you have a total pricing picture. There are still a few companies who don’t offer online price quotes and usually these small insurance companies only sell coverage through independent agents.
Drivers who switch companies do it for any number of reasons including denial of a claim, high rates after DUI convictions, not issuing a premium refund and high prices. No matter why you want to switch, finding a new company is pretty simple and you could end up saving a buck or two.
