Discounts can really help save money

Some insurance providers don’t list all available discounts in an easy-to-find place, so the list below gives a summary of both well-publicized and the harder-to-find credits that may apply to you.

  • Paperless Signup – Some insurance coverage companies will discount your bill up to fifty bucks simply for signing on their website.
  • Driver’s Ed – Have your child enroll and complete driver’s education as it will make them better drivers and lower rates.
  • Seat Belt Discounts – Drivers who require all vehicle occupants to use a seat belt can save up to 15% on the medical payments or PIP coverage costs.
  • Switch and Save Discount – A few companies offer discounts for signing up before your current expiration date. This can save 10% or more.
  • Driver Safety – Taking part in a course that instructs on driving safety could cut 5% off your bill if you qualify.
  • Anti-theft System – Vehicles optioned with advanced anti-theft systems help deter theft and will qualify for a discount on a insurance quote.
  • Club Memberships – Having an affiliation with specific professional or occupational memberships or organizations could trigger savings when shopping for insurance coverage.
  • Multi-policy Discount – If you have multiple policies and insure them with the same company you could earn a discount of as much as 10 to 15 percent.
  • Telematics Data Discounts – Drivers who elect to allow driving data collection to track their driving habits by using a telematics device in their vehicle such as Progressive’s Snapshot and State Farm’s In-Drive could save a few bucks if they have good driving habits.

It’s important to understand that some credits don’t apply to all coverage premiums. The majority will only reduce individual premiums such as liability, collision or medical payments. Even though the math looks like adding up those discounts means a free policy, it doesn’t quite work that way.

Large insurance coverage companies and some of the premium reductions they offer are shown below.

  • State Farm has discounts for defensive driving training, driver’s education, anti-theft, passive restraint, accident-free, Steer Clear safe driver discount, and good driver.
  • Nationwide policyholders can earn discounts including family plan, Farm Bureau membership, accident-free, anti-theft, business or organization, multi-policy, and defensive driving.
  • GEICO discounts include driver training, defensive driver, good student, military active duty, emergency military deployment, and five-year accident-free.
  • AAA offers premium reductions for good student, multi-policy, AAA membership discount, anti-theft, good driver, multi-car, and education and occupation.
  • 21st Century may offer discounts for early bird, automatic seat belts, defensive driver, good student, 55 and older, and student driver.
  • The Hartford includes discounts for bundle, air bag, vehicle fuel type, defensive driver, good student, anti-theft, and driver training.

If you need the cheapest insurance quotes, ask all the companies the best way to save money. A few discounts may not apply in your area.

Affordable insurance coverage quotes

The are a couple different ways of comparing rate quotes from different companies. The easiest way by far to do a complete rate comparison is to perform an online rate comparison. This is very easy and can be done in several different ways.

  1. The first (and easiest) way to find low rates is an all-inclusive rate comparison (click to open form in new window). This style of form eliminates the need for separate forms for each price estimate. One quote request will return price quotes from all major companies. It’s definitely the quickest method.
  2. Another way to get comparison quotes consists of visiting each company website and repeat the quote process. For examples sake, we’ll pretend you want to view quotes from USAA, Allstate and GEICO. In order to get each rate, you would have to navigate to each company’s site to enter your coverage information, which is why the first method is more popular.

    To view a list of companies in your area, click here.

Whichever method you choose, be certain you are entering nearly identical coverage data for each comparison quote. If you enter unequal deductibles or liability limits it will be very difficult to make a fair comparison for your Scion xD. Just a small difference in insurance coverages could throw off the whole comparison. Keep in mind that comparing a large number of companies helps increase your odds of locating a better price. Some companies don’t provide online rate quotes, so you should also compare quotes from them, too.

Will just any policy work for me?

When it comes to buying adequate coverage for your personal vehicles, there isn’t really a best way to insure your cars. Every situation is different.

For example, these questions could help you determine whether or not you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • How can I get my company to pay me more for my totalled car?
  • What can I do if my company denied a claim?
  • What is no-fault insurance?
  • I don’t drive much so do I pay less?
  • Do I benefit by insuring my home with the same company?
  • Am I covered when driving on a suspended license?
  • Can my teen drive my company car?

If you can’t answer these questions then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, complete this form.

Learn about insurance coverages for a 2014 Scion xD

Understanding the coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Coverage for collisions

This coverage will pay to fix damage to your xD resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as crashing into a building, hitting a mailbox and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Auto liability

Liability coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to people or other property. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability can pay for claims like emergency aid, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, repair costs for stationary objects, medical services and medical expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as much as you can afford.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.

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

Comprehensive insurance

This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like damage from flooding, damage from getting keyed, hail damage and a broken windshield. The highest amount your insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.

Coverage for medical expenses

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses for ambulance fees, chiropractic care, dental work, X-ray expenses and prosthetic devices. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Make an honest buck

We just covered many tips how you can reduce 2014 Scion xD insurance prices online. The most important thing to understand is the more you quote insurance, the better likelihood of getting low cost insurance. You may even find the biggest savings come from a smaller regional carrier.

When shopping online for auto insurance, do not skimp on coverage in order to save money. There are a lot of situations where consumers will sacrifice collision coverage only to find out that the savings was not a smart move. Your aim should be to purchase plenty of coverage at the lowest possible cost and still be able to protect your assets.

Budget-friendly auto insurance can be purchased on the web as well as from independent agents, so you need to shop insurance with both to get a complete price analysis. Some insurance providers do not provide rate quotes online and many times these smaller companies only sell through independent agents.
