Cheap auto insurance quotes with discounts

Some insurers do not advertise the complete list of policy discounts very clearly, so the list below details both well-publicized and also the lesser-known credits available to you.

  • Policy Bundle Discount – If you insure your home and vehicles with the same insurance company you will save 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Mature Driver Discount – Older drivers can get lower premium rates on Accord coverage.
  • Discount for Passive Restraints – Factory air bags or motorized seat belts can receive discounts of 20 to 30 percent.
  • Anti-theft Discount – Vehicles with anti-theft systems can help prevent theft and will qualify for a discount on a insurance coverage quote.
  • Safety Course Discount – Completing a defensive driving course could cut 5% off your bill if your company offers it.
  • Buy New and Save – Putting auto insurance coverage on a new car can get you a discount since newer vehicles are generally safer.
  • Payment Discounts – If you pay your entire premium ahead of time instead of making monthly payments you may reduce your total bill.

You should keep in mind that some of the credits will not apply to the entire policy premium.

Tailor your insurance coverage coverage to you

When it comes to choosing adequate coverage, there isn’t really a one size fits all plan. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. Here are some questions about coverages that can aid in determining if your insurance needs may require specific advice.

  • When would I need additional glass coverage?
  • What is the difference between comprehensive and collision coverage?
  • Is a fancy paint job covered?
  • Is my vehicle covered by my employer’s policy when using it for work?
  • How high should my uninsured/underinsured coverage be in my state?
  • Is my nanny covered when driving my vehicle?
  • Do I have coverage when making deliveries for my home business?
  • Do I need roadside assistance coverage?
  • Should I buy full coverage?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Insurance coverages and their meanings

Knowing the specifics of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on the average insurance policy.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Liability auto insurance

This can cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. It protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as medical expenses, bail bonds, attorney fees, funeral expenses and court costs. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy higher limits if possible.

Medical expense insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses such as ambulance fees, X-ray expenses and surgery. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage pays for damage to your Accord resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers claims such as colliding with a tree, scraping a guard rail and colliding with another moving vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as damage from getting keyed, fire damage and hitting a bird. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
