Searching for the cheapest insurance rates for your Dodge Viper? Saving money on insurance could be quite difficult for drivers not familiar with comparing prices online. With such a large choice of online companies, it can be a big hassle to find the lowest price.
If you currently have a car insurance policy, you will most likely be able to save some money using these techniques. Pricing cheaper auto insurance is quite easy. Although consumers do need to understand how insurance companies price insurance differently because it can help you find the best coverage.
Many factors are taken into consideration when you get a price on insurance. A few of the factors are predictable like your driving record, but some are more transparent like where you live or how safe your car is.
Listed below are some of the factors used by insurance companies to determine rates.
Insuring your vehicles can cost a lot, but there are discounts available to reduce the price significantly. Certain reductions will be credited when you quote, but some need to be specially asked for prior to getting the savings.
Policy discounts save money, but most of the big mark downs will not be given to the entire cost. Some only reduce individual premiums such as comp or med pay. So even though it sounds like adding up those discounts means a free policy, you won’t be that lucky.

When it comes to choosing coverage, there really is no best way to insure your cars. Everyone’s situation is a little different.
Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine if your insurance needs might need an agent’s assistance.
If you can’t answer these questions, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form.
Having a good grasp of insurance helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Dodge Viper.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
Medical expense coverage
Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for immediate expenses for things like chiropractic care, dental work, prosthetic devices and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Collision coverage covers damage to your Viper resulting from a collision with another car or object. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a mailbox, scraping a guard rail and rolling your car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hail damage, vandalism, hitting a deer and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Coverage for liability
This provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
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 liability limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability coverage protects against claims like medical services, pain and suffering and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Insureds switch companies for any number of reasons including being labeled a high risk driver, extreme rates for teen drivers, delays in responding to claim requests or even high rates after DUI convictions. It doesn’t matter what your reason, choosing a new insurance company is pretty simple and you could end up saving a buck or two.
As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, do not buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. There have been many cases where drivers have reduced liability limits or collision coverage and discovered at claim time they didn’t purchase enough coverage. The aim is to buy a smart amount of coverage at the best cost and still be able to protect your assets.
