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.
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.
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.

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.
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
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
