Some insurance providers don’t list every discount they offer in an easy-to-find place, so the next list breaks down both the well known and also the lesser-known ways to save on auto insurance.

  • Discount for Life Insurance – If the company offers life insurance, you could get a break if you buy life insurance from them.
  • No Charge for an Accident – This one is not really a discount per se, but a handful of insurance companies will let one accident slide before hitting you with a surcharge as long as you don’t have any claims for a particular time prior to the accident.
  • Seat Belt Discounts – Drivers who require all vehicle occupants to buckle up before driving can save a little off the PIP or medical payment premium.

How your Enclave insurance premiums are determined

One of the most helpful ways to save on insurance coverage is to to have a grasp of the different types of things that help calculate insurance coverage rates. If you have a feel for what determines premiums, this allows you to make good choices that may reward you with lower premium levels.

  • Save money by eliminating incidental coverages – There are a ton of extra bells and whistles that can waste your money but may not be useful. Add-on coverages like vanishing deductibles, high-cost glass coverage, and term life insurance may not be needed and are just wasting money. These coverages may sound good when discussing your needs, but if they’re wasting money remove them from your policy.
  • Prevent theft and save – Choosing to buy a car with an alarm system can help lower your premiums. Anti-theft features such as vehicle immobilizer systems, OnStar, and tracking devices like LoJack all help prevent your vehicle from being stolen.
  • Insurance costs and driver gender – Over the last 50 years, statistics have shown that females tend to be a little less risky than males. That doesn’t necessarily mean that men are WORSE drivers than women. They both tend to get into auto accidents at a similar rate, but the males cause more damage and cost insurance companies more money. Not only are claims higher, but men get cited for more serious violations like DWI (DUI) or reckless driving. Males from age 16 to 21 have the highest risk to insure and therefore have the most expensive insurance coverage rates.
  • Costs may be higher where you live – Residing in small towns and rural areas has it’s advantages when shopping for auto insurance. Drivers who live in large cities regularly have more auto accidents and more time behind the wheel. Fewer drivers and short commutes means reduced accidents as well as less vandalism and auto theft.

Your situation helps dictate your coverage

When choosing coverage, there isn’t really a perfect coverage plan. Every insured’s situation is different.

For instance, these questions might point out whether or not you will benefit from professional help.

  • Is my babysitter covered when using my vehicle?
  • Does my insurance cover my expensive audio equipment?
  • What can I do if my company won’t pay a claim?
  • Should I bundle my homeowners policy with my auto?
  • Should I buy only the required minimum liability coverage?
  • How does medical payments coverage work?
  • Can I afford to buy a different vehicle if my 2010 Buick Enclave is totaled?

If you can’t answer these questions, you might consider talking to an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form.

Save 15 percent in 15 minutes? Is it for real?

Big name companies like 21st Century, Allstate and State Farm continually stream television and radio advertisements. They all seem to say the same thing that drivers will save a bundle after switching your policy. How does each company offer you a better deal?

Companies offer their best rates for the type of insured that will be a good risk. For instance, a profitable insured could possibly be over the age of 50, carries high limits, and has excellent credit. A propective insured who meets those qualifications receives the best premium rates and as a result will probably save when they switch companies.

Insureds who don’t qualify for this ideal profile may be forced to pay a more expensive rate and ends up with the customer buying from someone else. The trick is to say “people who switch” but not “everyone who gets a quote” will save that much if they switch. This is how insurance companies can confidently state the savings. That is why you should compare rate quotes every year. Because you never know the company that will have the best prices at this point in time.

Car insurance coverage information

Understanding the coverages of a insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This coverage provides protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your 2010 Buick Enclave.

Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.

Comprehensive coverages

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as theft, a broken windshield and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Coverage for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses for things like EMT expenses, prosthetic devices and surgery. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Collision coverage

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for claims like driving through your garage door, colliding with a tree and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Coverage for liability

Liability coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects you from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for 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 might see limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.

Liability can pay for claims such as attorney fees, bail bonds, repair costs for stationary objects and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but you should buy higher limits if possible.

Shop smart and save

We covered a lot of tips how to get a better price on 2010 Buick Enclave insurance. The key thing to remember is the more times you quote, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. You may even find the biggest savings come from a small local company.

Insureds switch companies for many reasons like policy cancellation, poor customer service, an unsatisfactory settlement offer or even delays in paying claims. It doesn’t matter what your reason, finding a great new company is pretty simple and you could end up saving a buck or two.

As you prepare to switch companies, it’s not a good idea to skimp on coverage in order to save money. There are many occasions where consumers will sacrifice liability coverage limits only to find out that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. Your objective should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at the lowest possible cost, not the least amount of coverage.
