Companies offering auto insurance don’t always advertise all possible discounts very clearly, so we researched both well-publicized and the harder-to-find credits that may apply to you.
Discounts reduce rates, but you should keep in mind that some credits don’t apply to the overall cost of the policy. Some only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. So despite the fact that it appears all those discounts means the company will pay you, you’re out of luck.

Learning about specific coverages of your auto insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. These are typical coverage types offered by auto insurance companies.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your BMW X5.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Medical payments coverage and PIP – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses for prosthetic devices, ambulance fees, dental work, pain medications and nursing services. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Liability coverages – Liability insurance provides protection from damage that occurs to people or other property by causing an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability insurance covers things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, bail bonds, medical expenses and pain and suffering. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive coverage – Comprehensive insurance covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as rock chips in glass, theft, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and a broken windshield. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Collision coverage – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your X5 resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things such as rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb, colliding with another moving vehicle, hitting a parking meter and colliding with a tree. 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 raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
