Volvo C70 insurance premium factors

Many things are used in the calculation when you get your auto insurance bill. Some are obvious such as your driving record, but other criteria are less obvious like where you live or how financially stable you are.

  • Too many auto insurance claims will drive prices up – If you frequently file small claims, you can expect either a policy non-renewal or much higher rates. Insurance companies generally give discounts to people who file claims infrequently. Your insurance policy is meant to be used in the event of the bigger claims that can’t be paid out-of-pocket.
  • Men tend to take more risk – Over the last 30 years, statistics show that females tend to be a little less risky than males. This data doesn’t prove that women are better drivers. Men and women cause accidents at a similar rate, but the males get into accidents with more damage. Men also get more serious tickets like DUI and reckless driving. Teenage male drivers tend to get in the most accidents and therefore have the most expensive auto insurance rates.
  • Safer vehicles are cheaper to insure – Cars with high safety ratings can get you lower premiums. Highly rated vehicles protect occupants better and better occupant protection means lower claim amounts passed on to you as lower rates.
  • Liability coverage – A critical coverage on your policy, liability insurance will afford coverage if ever you are determined to be liable for causing personal injury or damage in an accident. Your liability coverage provides you with a defense in court which can cost thousands of dollars. Carrying liability coverage is mandatory and cheap when compared with rates for comp and collision, so drivers should carry high limits.
  • Auto insurance policy lapses increase rates – Having a gap between insurance policy dates is a fast way to pay more for auto insurance. In addition to paying higher rates, getting caught without coverage can result in fines or a revoked license.
  • How old are your drivers? – Older, more experienced drivers are more cautious drivers, statistically cause fewer accidents and get fewer tickets.Young drivers are proven to be inattentive with other occupants in the car therefore auto insurance rates are much higher.
  • Pleasure use saves money – The more miles you rack up on your Volvo in a year’s time the more you will pay for auto insurance. A lot of insurance companies charge to insure your cars determined by how the vehicle is used. Autos that are left in the garage receive lower rates as compared to vehicles used primarily for driving to work. Make sure your policy shows the right rating data. Having the wrong rating on your C70 is throwing money out the window.
  • Extra coverages you don’t use – Insurance policies have a lot of extra coverages that may not really be needed if you aren’t careful. Coverages like replacement cost coverage, better glass coverage, and additional equipment coverage may not be needed and are just wasting money. The coverages may be enticing when talking to your agent, but your needs may have changed so eliminate them to save money.

How to get affordable insurance coverage

When shopping for affordable car insurance quotes, there are a couple of ways of comparing price quotes from all the different companies. The recommended way to find affordable 2010 Volvo C70 insurance rates is simply to get online rate quotes. This can be accomplished in several different ways.

  1. The most recommended method to compare a lot of rates at once is to use a rate comparison form click here to open form in new window. This type of form eliminates the need for separate quotes for each price estimate. Just one form compares rates from multiple companies.
  2. Another way to compare rate quotes is spending the time to visit the website of each company and repeat the quote process again and again. For example, we’ll pretend you want to compare prices for Nationwide, Progressive and Travelers. In order to compare rates, you need to go to each individual site and punch in your information repeatedly, which can be really labor intensive.

You can use whichever method you prefer to find lower rates, just be sure to compare equivalent quote information on every quote. If you compare different coverage information it’s impossible to truly determine the lowest rate. Quoting even small variations in insurance coverages can make a big difference in price. Keep in mind that quoting more helps you find more affordable insurance. Not every company allows you to get price estimates online, so you need to compare price estimates from them as well.

Affordable insurance coverage rates with discounts

Some companies do not list every possible discount in an easy-to-find place, so the next list breaks down some of the more common and the more hidden credits available to you.

  • Organization Discounts – Joining qualifying employment or professional organizations is a simple method to lower premiums on your next renewal.
  • Life Insurance Discount – Larger insurance companies have a discount if you purchase life insurance.
  • Multiple Vehicles – Buying insurance for multiple cars on a single policy could earn a price break for each car.
  • E-sign Discounts</strong – Some of the larger companies may give you up to $50 for buying your policy on your computer.
  • Driver Education Discount – Cut your cost by having your teen driver enroll in driver’s education if offered at their school.
  • Driver Safety – Taking a safe driver course is a good idea and can lower rates and easily pay for the cost of the class.

Please keep in mind that most of the big mark downs will not be given to your bottom line cost. Some only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like liability, collision or medical payments. So when the math indicates you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies wouldn’t make money that way.

Tailor your insurance coverage to you

When choosing the right insurance coverage, there really is no perfect coverage plan. Everyone’s needs are different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine whether your personal situation would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • What is no-fault insurance?
  • Am I covered if I drive in a foreign country?
  • How do I file an SR-22 for a DUI in my state?
  • Why am I required to get a high-risk car insurance policy?
  • If my 2010 Volvo C70 is totaled, can I afford another vehicle?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my car?
  • Am I covered when driving on a suspended license?
  • Should I file a claim if it’s only slightly more than my deductible?

If you’re not sure about those questions but a few of them apply, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, complete this form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier

Insurance coverage specifics

Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverage types found on most insurance policies.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things such as rock chips in glass, a broken windshield, damage from a tornado or hurricane and hitting a deer. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your 2010 Volvo C70.

Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.

Collision coverage – This coverage covers damage to your C70 caused by collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for things like damaging your car on a curb, colliding with a tree and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability coverages – Liability insurance protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property by causing an accident. It protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see limits of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and property damage coverage for $50,000.

Liability insurance covers things like court costs, legal defense fees and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Insurance for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like surgery, nursing services and pain medications. They are 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 and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Never pay more for less

When getting car insurance quotes online, make sure you don’t skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. There are a lot of situations where someone dropped full coverage only to regret that they should have had better coverage. Your goal is to buy enough coverage at a price you can afford and still be able to protect your assets.

Some insurance companies may not have the ability to get quotes online and usually these smaller companies only sell coverage through local independent agents. Cost effective 2010 Volvo C70 insurance can be sourced on the web and with local insurance agents, and you should compare rates from both so you have a total pricing picture.
