Did you fall for a flashy sales pitch and buy an expensive insurance policy? Don’t sweat it because there are a lot of people just like you who feel imprisoned by their insurance policy.
Many insurers vie for your insurance dollar, and it can be difficult to compare rates and uncover the absolute lowest cost out there.
It’s a good idea to do rate comparisons before your next renewal because prices go up and down regularly.

Not every company provides online rate quotes, so you need to compare rates from those companies as well.

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are the normal coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Subaru Impreza.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Usually these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
This coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as damage from flooding, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and hitting a bird. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability insurance can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people that is your fault. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see limits of 50/100/50 which means a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as structural damage, repair costs for stationary objects and attorney fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
This coverage covers damage to your Impreza resulting from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers claims like rolling your car, hitting a mailbox, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with another moving vehicle and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. Another option is to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses such as rehabilitation expenses, X-ray expenses and dental work. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover all vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
