How your Aura insurance costs are determined

Many factors are considered when quoting car insurance. A few of the factors are predictable like your driving record, but other factors are not quite as obvious like your vehicle usage or your vehicle rating.

The itemized list below are some of the most rate-impacting factors that factor into premiums.

  • Vocation reflects on rates – Did you know your insurance rates can be affected by your occupation? Occupations like judgesair traffic controllers and accountants tend to have higher rates than the rest of us in part from job stress and lengthy work days. Other professions such as scientists, students and retirees have the lowest average rates for Aura coverage.
  • No policy lapses lowers insurance rates – Not maintaining insurance is against the law and companies may charge more for letting your insurance lapse for non-payment. Not only will you pay more, being ticketed for driving with no insurance could result in fines and jail time.
  • Lower mileage equals lower premium – The more miles you rack up on your Saturn each year the higher your rate. Many insurance companies calculate prices based upon how much you drive. Autos used primarily for pleasure use cost less to insure as compared to vehicles used primarily for driving to work. Incorrect rating for your Aura may be costing you. Make sure your insurance coverage is showing the correct usage.
  • Your location is a factor – Living in a rural area can be a good thing when it comes to insurance. People who live in big cities tend to have much more traffic and more severe claims. Fewer drivers on the road means reduced accidents and also fewer theft and vandalism claims.
  • Use credit responsibly and save – Having a bad credit score will be a significant factor in determining your rates. Drivers who have high credit ratings tend to be less risk to insure as compared to drivers with bad credit. If your credit score is not that good, you could be paying less to insure your 2009 Saturn Aura if you improve your credit rating.
  • What’s your car’s safety rating? – Vehicles that have high safety ratings tend to have better insurance rates. These vehicles reduce the chance of injuries and fewer serious injuries translates into savings for insurance companies and lower rates for you. If the Saturn Aura has at least four stars on Safercar.gov or an “acceptable” rating on iihs.org it may be receiving lower rates.
  • Premiums are lower the older you get – Older drivers have been proven to be more responsible, file fewer claims .Beginning drivers have been known to be inattentive and easily distracted behind the wheel therefore insurance rates are much higher.
  • Eliminate extra policy coverages – Insurance policies have a lot of optional add-on coverages you can purchase when buying insurance. Insurance for things like roadside assistance, high-cost glass coverage, and motor club memberships could be just wasting money. The coverages may be enticing when you first buy your policy, but your needs may have changed so get rid of them and save.

These discounts can lower your auto insurance quotes

Car insurance is not cheap, but there’s a good chance there are discounts that can help lower your rates. Many discounts should be triggered at quote time, but some may not be applied and must be requested specifically prior to getting the savings.

  • Lower Rates for Military – Being on active duty in the military could trigger a small discount.
  • Drive Less and Save – Driving fewer miles could qualify for substantially lower prices.
  • Accident Waiver – This one isn’t a discount, but certain companies will turn a blind eye to one accident before hitting you with a surcharge if you are claim-free for a particular time prior to the accident.
  • Good Drivers – Drivers without accidents may save up to 50% more for Aura coverage than less cautious drivers.
  • 55 and Retired – Drivers over the age of 55 can get a discount up to 10% for Aura coverage.

Discounts reduce rates, but you should keep in mind that most of the big mark downs will not be given to the overall cost of the policy. Some only reduce specific coverage prices like medical payments or collision. Despite the appearance that it’s possible to get free car insurance, it doesn’t quite work that way.

The best auto insurance companies and some of their more popular discounts can be found below.

  • State Farm may have discounts that include Steer Clear safe driver discount, driver’s education, good driver, anti-theft, multiple autos, passive restraint, and good student.

Different people need different insurance coverages

When buying proper insurance coverage, there really is no cookie cutter policy. Everyone’s needs are different.

For instance, these questions may help highlight if you might need professional guidance.

  • What can I do if my company denied a claim?
  • Why am I be forced to buy a membership to get insurance from some companies?
  • When can my company non-renew my policy?
  • What is the minimum liability in my state?
  • Are rock chip repairs covered?
  • I have good health insurance, so how much medical payments coverage do I need?
  • Should I file a claim if it’s only slightly more than my deductible?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form. It’s fast, free and may give you better protection.

Auto insurance coverages

Knowing the specifics of insurance can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Liability insurance

This coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

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 policy limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability insurance covers claims like attorney fees, legal defense fees, repair costs for stationary objects, funeral expenses and medical services. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision insurance

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for claims like driving through your garage door, rolling your car, hitting a parking meter and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for bills such as pain medications, rehabilitation expenses, nursing services, prosthetic devices and ambulance fees. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Saturn Aura.

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Comprehensive auto coverage

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive can pay for things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, rock chips in glass, vandalism and fire damage. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay 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.

The best insurance company isn’t always the cheapest

Drivers leave their current company for a number of reasons such as not issuing a premium refund, lack of trust in their agent, an unsatisfactory settlement offer and even policy non-renewal. It doesn’t matter what your reason, choosing a new company is not as difficult as it may seem.

We’ve covered many ways to get a better price on 2009 Saturn Aura insurance. It’s most important to understand that the more you quote insurance coverage, the better likelihood of getting cheaper insurance coverage. You may even find the best price on car insurance is with a small mutual company.

As you shop your coverage around, you should never buy poor coverage just to save money. There are a lot of situations where drivers have reduced liability coverage limits only to regret that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. The goal is to get the best coverage possible at the best possible price, not the least amount of coverage.
