Compare 2015 Volvo S80 Insurance Quotes

Looking for cheaper auto insurance rates for your Volvo S80? Nobody I know rejoices having to buy auto insurance, especially when the cost is too high. Insurance companies such as State Farm, Geico and Farmers Insurance all promote huge savings with ad campaigns and it is difficult to ignore the propoganda and do the work needed to find the best deal.

How to compare car insurance price quotes

Finding cheap 2015 Volvo S80 car insurance quotes is not a difficult process. You just have to take time comparing price quotes to discover which company has inexpensive insurance coverage quotes. Price comparisons can be done using a couple different methods.

  1. If you don’t have a lot of time, the easiest way to find low rates is a comparison rater form (click to open form in new window). This form eliminates the need for separate quotation requests for each company you want a rate for. Completing one form gets insurance cost estimates instantly.
  2. A less efficient way to analyze rates is going to each company’s website and repeat the quote process again and again. For instance, we’ll assume you want comparison quotes from Progressive, State Farm and Travelers. To get rate quotes you would need to go to every website to enter the same coverage data repeatedly, which is why the first method is quicker.

  3. The old school way to compare rates is calling or driving to insurance agencies in your area. Comparing rates online eliminates the need for an insurance agent unless you’re the type of person who wants the professional abilities that only a licensed agent can provide. Some companies do allow you to price shop online and have a local agent actually service the policy.

You can choose any of those ways to find more affodable coverage, but make darn sure you compare equivalent information with each company. If you enter higher or lower deductibles it’s not possible to decipher which rate is best.

Discounts for cheap insurance coverage rates

Insurance coverage is not an enjoyable expense, but you may qualify for discounts that can help lower your rates. Some trigger automatically when you get a quote, but occassionally some discounts must be asked about before they will apply. If you aren’t receiving every discount possible, you are paying more than you should be.

  • Anti-lock Brake System – Cars and trucks equipped with ABS or steering control can reduce accidents and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
  • Senior Citizen Rates – Drivers over the age of 55 could receive a small discount on rates for S80 insurance.
  • Sign Online – A handful of insurance companies may give you up to $50 for completing your application online.
  • Military Discounts – Being on active duty in the military could mean lower prices.
  • Theft Deterent Discount – Cars, trucks, and SUVs equipped with anti-theft or alarm systems are stolen less frequently and will save you 10% or more.
  • Responsible Driver Discount – Insureds who avoid accidents could pay up to 40% less for S80 insurance than drivers with accidents.

Keep in mind that most of the big mark downs will not be given to all coverage premiums. Some only reduce specific coverage prices like comprehensive or collision. So even though they make it sound like you can get free auto insurance, it just doesn’t work that way. Any amount of discount will help lower the amount you have to pay.

A partial list of companies that possibly offer many of the previously listed discounts possibly include:

You may need specialized car insurance coverage

When it comes to buying the right insurance coverage, there really is no “best” method to buy coverage. Everyone’s needs are different so this has to be addressed. Here are some questions about coverages that can aid in determining if your situation would benefit from professional advice.

  • Is my dog or cat covered if injured in an accident?
  • Is business equipment covered while in my vehicle?
  • Which is better, split liability limits or combined limits?
  • How do I insure my teen driver?
  • When should I not file a claim?
  • Does coverage extend to my business vehicle?
  • Do I need replacement cost coverage?
  • Do all my vehicles need collision coverage?

If you’re not sure about those questions but one or more may apply to you then you might want to talk to a licensed insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area. It’s fast, free and can provide invaluable advice.

The coverage is in the details

Learning about specific coverages of a auto insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. These are the usual coverages offered by auto insurance companies.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things like a broken windshield, damage from getting keyed, fire damage, rock chips in glass and hitting a bird. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Coverage for collisions

Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your S80 from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers claims like colliding with another moving vehicle, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with a tree and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.

Insurance for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for expenses like ambulance fees, nursing services, EMT expenses and chiropractic care. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your 2015 Volvo S80.

Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Normally these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.

Liability car insurance

Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. It protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 which stand for a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one number which is a combined single limit that pays claims from the same limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage pays for things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, funeral expenses and medical services. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
