Car Insurance Discounts

Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, but there may be some discounts that can help lower your rates. Certain reductions will be credited at quote time, but some discounts are required to be asked for prior to receiving the credit.

  • Theft Prevention Discount – Anti-theft and alarm system equipped vehicles help deter theft and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Sign Online – A few larger online companies may give you up to $50 just for signing your application on your computer.
  • Clubs and Organizations – Affiliation with certain professional organizations is a simple method to lower premiums on car insurance.
  • Discount for Life Insurance – Not all insurance companies offer life insurance, but some may give you lower prices if you buy life insurance from them.
  • First Accident Forgiveness – but some companies like Allstate, State Farm and GEICO permit an accident without the usual rate increase if you have no claims prior to being involved in the accident.

It’s important to understand that some credits don’t apply to the entire cost. Some only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as liability, collision or medical payments. Even though the math looks like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, it’s just not the way it works.

A list of companies and a summarized list of policyholder discounts can be read below.

  • Travelers offers discounts including payment discounts, student away at school, good student, hybrid/electric vehicle, IntelliDrive, multi-car, and multi-policy.
  • 21st Century includes discounts for 55 and older, student driver, automatic seat belts, anti-lock brakes, and driver training.
  • State Farm offers premium reductions for good student, good driver, anti-theft, safe vehicle, defensive driving training, multiple autos, and Drive Safe & Save.
  • GEICO has savings for multi-vehicle, good student, five-year accident-free, federal employee, and anti-lock brakes.
  • SAFECO discounts include homeowner, drive less, anti-theft, anti-lock brakes, multi-car, bundle discounts, and teen safe driver.
  • AAA has discounts for multi-policy, pay-in-full, education and occupation, AAA membership discount, anti-theft, and multi-car.

Six factors that influence insurance rates

Many things are used in the calculation when you get a price on insurance. Some of the criteria are obvious such as your driving history, but others are more transparent like your continuous coverage or your commute time.

Listed below are some of the factors car insurance companies consider when setting your rates.

  • Never have coverage lapses – Not having insurance is not a good idea and you will pay a penalty because you let your insurance coverage expire. Not only will you pay higher rates, getting caught without coverage may earn you a license revocation or jail time. You may have to file a SR-22 with your state DMV.
  • Youthful drivers cost more – Teenage drivers are known to be inattentive and easily distracted when driving so car insurance rates are higher. Parents adding a beginning driver onto your car insurance can be quite pricey. Older people are more cautious drivers, tend to file fewer claims and get fewer tickets.
  • Combine policies with the same company – Most larger car insurance companies allow lower prices to customers that purchase more than one policy in the form of a multi-policy discount. The discount can be as much as ten percent or more Even with this discount, it’s always a smart idea to shop around to help ensure you have the lowest rates.
  • Alarm systems save money – Choosing a vehicle with a theft deterrent system can save you a little every year. Anti-theft features like GM’s OnStar, tamper alarm systems and vehicle immobilizers can thwart vehicle theft.
  • Big cities mean more claims – Residing in a small town has definite advantages when it comes to car insurance. Less people living in that area means fewer accidents and also fewer theft and vandalism claims. People in densly populated areas regularly have more traffic problems and longer commute times. The longer drive time means more chance of being in an accident.
  • Pay less after the wedding – Getting married may save some money on car insurance. Marriage may mean you are more responsible and insurance companies reward insureds because married drivers tend to file fewer claims.

Tailor your car insurance coverage to you

When it comes to buying the best car insurance coverage, there isn’t really a best way to insure your cars. Every insured’s situation is different.

Here are some questions about coverages that might point out if you might need professional guidance.

  • When would I need additional glass coverage?
  • How do I buy GAP insurance?
  • Am I missing any policy discounts?
  • What can I do if my company won’t pay a claim?
  • Is borrowed equipment or tools covered if stolen or damaged?
  • How much liability coverage do I need in my state?
  • Can my teen driver be rated on a liability-only vehicle?
  • Am I covered if I crash into my own garage door?
  • Am I covered when driving in Canada or Mexico?
  • Do I have coverage for damage caused while driving under the influence?

If you’re not sure about those questions but you think they might apply to your situation then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form.

Car insurance coverage breakdown

Knowing the specifics of your car insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Collision coverage – This covers damage to your M4 caused by collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers claims such as hitting a parking meter, crashing into a building, colliding with a tree and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Medical payments and PIP coverage – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses for things like surgery, dental work, hospital visits and ambulance fees. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Liability car insurance – Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.

Liability insurance covers claims like emergency aid, medical expenses, medical services, funeral expenses and court costs. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but buy as much as you can afford.

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 insurance covers things such as hail damage, vandalism, damage from getting keyed and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount your car insurance company will pay 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.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your BMW M4.

Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

You can do this!

People who switch companies do it for a number of reasons such as denial of a claim, lack of trust in their agent, extreme rates for teen drivers and even high rates after DUI convictions. It doesn’t matter what your reason, choosing a new insurance company is actually quite simple.

As you shop your coverage around, don’t be tempted to reduce needed coverages to save money. In many instances, someone sacrificed full coverage only to discover later that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. Your aim should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at the best possible price, but do not sacrifice coverage to save money.

We just presented many ideas to lower your 2017 BMW M4 insurance rates. It’s most important to understand that the more providers you compare, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. Drivers may discover the lowest rates are with the least-expected company.
