How to buy auto insurance online

There are several ways to shop for auto insurance, but some are more efficient than others. You can waste a lot of time talking to insurance agencies in your area, or you could save time and use the internet to get prices fast.

Many insurance companies take part in a program that enables customers to only type in their quote data once, and every company then gives them pricing based on the submitted data. This prevents consumers from doing quote forms to each individual auto insurance company.

One minor caviat to using this type of form is you can’t choose the companies you will receive quotes from. So if you want to select individual companies to compare rates, we have a page of the cheapest auto insurance companies in your area. Click to view list.

Which method you use is up to you, but make sure you use equivalent coverage data for each quote you get. If each company quotes different data it’s impossible to determine the best price for your Infiniti QX50.

Insurance coverage companies offer many types of discounts

Buying insurance coverage is not cheap, but there are discounts available that many consumers don’t even know exist. Many discounts should be triggered at the time of purchase, but a few must be inquired about in order for you to get them.

  • Distant Student Discount – Older children who are enrolled in higher education away from home and don’t have a car may be insured at a cheaper rate.
  • E-sign – Some of the larger companies will provide an incentive simply for signing on the web.
  • Own a Home – Owning your own home or condo may earn you a small savings due to the fact that maintaining a home shows financial diligence.
  • Good Drivers – Drivers who avoid accidents can pay as much as 50% less for QX50 coverage than their less cautious counterparts.
  • ABS Braking Discount – Vehicles that have anti-lock braking systems can stop better under adverse conditions and the ABS can save up to 10%.

While discounts sound great, it’s important to understand that many deductions do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Some only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. Even though it appears all those discounts means the company will pay you, it just doesn’t work that way.

Do I just need basic coverages?

When buying the right insurance coverage, there isn’t really a perfect coverage plan. Everyone’s needs are different.

Here are some questions about coverages that may help you determine if your situation might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Does my 2015 Infiniti QX50 need full coverage?
  • Should I have combined single limit or split liability limits?
  • Why is insurance for a teen driver so high?
  • Why do I only qualify for high-risk insurance?
  • What if I owe more than I can insure my car for?
  • Who is covered when they drive my 2015 Infiniti QX50?
  • Is other people’s property covered if stolen from my vehicle?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, you may need to chat with a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, take a second and complete this form. It is quick, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Five things that influence your insurance rates

Many things are used when you get a price on insurance. A few of the factors are predictable such as traffic violations, but other criteria are more obscure such as your credit history and annual miles driven.

Shown below are some of the major factors used by your company to calculate rates.

  • Pay more out-of-pocket – Physical damage insurance, termed comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, is used to repair damage to your vehicle. A few examples of covered claims would be a dented fender, hitting a deer, and burglary. Your deductibles define how much you are required to spend if a claim is determined to be covered. The more expense the insured has to pay upfront, the lower your rates will be for QX50 coverage.
  • Urban residents pay more – Being located in less populated areas can be a good thing when buying insurance. Lower population means less chance of accidents and lower theft and vandalism rates. Drivers who live in large cities regularly have much more traffic and longer commutes to work. More time behind the wheel translates into higher accident risk.
  • Drive a safer car and pay less – Safe vehicles tend to have lower insurance rates. Vehicles built for safety reduce injuries and any reduction in injury severity means less claims paid and more competitive rates for policyholders.
  • File claims and pay more – Auto insurance companies generally give most affordable rates to policyholders who are claim-free. If you frequently file small claims, you can expect much higher rates or policy non-renewal. Auto insurance is designed for the large, substantial claims.
  • A lcoverage lapse is a bad thing – Having a lapse in insurance coverage will be a guaranteed way to increase your rates. In addition to paying higher rates, failure to provide proof of insurance can result in fines and jail time.

Is there truth in advertising?

Drivers constantly see and hear ads for the lowest price car insurance from the likes of 21st Century, Allstate and State Farm. They all advertise the message that people will save if you just switch to them.

How does every company have lower policy pricing? It’s all in the words they use.

Car insurance companies have an ideal profile for the type of customer that will add to their bottom line. For instance, a desirable insured might have to be between the ages of 30 and 50, insures multiple vehicles, and drives a car with an anti-theft system. Anybody who matches that profile will probably get cheap auto insurance rates and most likely will save if they switch.

Consumers who don’t measure up to these standards will be quoted higher premium rates and this results in the customer buying from a different company. The wording the ads use say “customers that switch” not “everyone that quotes” can save as much as they claim. That’s the way insurance companies can confidently advertise the way they do. Because of the profiling, you really should do a quote comparison often. Because without a comparison, you cannot know the company that will be your best fit.

Insurance coverage basics

Having a good grasp of your insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Comprehensive auto coverage

This covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive can pay for things such as theft, falling objects and damage from flooding. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like doctor visits, pain medications, chiropractic care and ambulance fees. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Collision protection

This pays for damage to your QX50 resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage protects against things such as crashing into a ditch, backing into a parked car, damaging your car on a curb and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Infiniti QX50.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Coverage for liability

Liability coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property in an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 50/100/50 that translate to $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.

Liability coverage protects against claims like bail bonds, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, emergency aid, loss of income and structural damage. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Be a money saver!

When buying insurance coverage, never skimp on coverage in order to save money. There are a lot of situations where an insured dropped collision coverage only to regret that it was a big mistake. Your goal should be to buy enough coverage for the lowest price, but do not sacrifice coverage to save money.

People leave their current company for many reasons like policy non-renewal, lack of trust in their agent, unfair underwriting practices and even high prices. Whatever your reason, choosing a new company is actually quite simple.

Cost effective 2015 Infiniti QX50 insurance is attainable from both online companies in addition to local insurance agencies, so you need to shop auto insurance with both to have the best chance of lowering rates. A few companies may not offer online price quotes and usually these regional insurance providers work with independent agencies.
