Some providers don’t necessarily list every discount they offer in an easy-to-find place, so we break down some of the more common as well as the least known credits available to bring down your rates.
Discounts reduce rates, but you should keep in mind that most discounts do not apply to the entire policy premium. Some only apply to individual premiums such as comp or med pay. So even though it sounds like all the discounts add up to a free policy, that’s just not realistic. But any discount will help lower the premium cost.
Auto insurance companies that may offer quotes with some of the discounts shown above may include but are not limited to:
If you need lower rates, check with each company how you can save money. Some discounts listed above might not apply in every state.

Learning about specific coverages of a car insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages for your vehicles. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement.
Coverage for medical payments – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for immediate expenses for things like chiropractic care, pain medications, EMT expenses, X-ray expenses and rehabilitation expenses. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Uninsured and underinsured coverage – This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Lexus NX 200t.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as a broken windshield, hail damage, hitting a deer, damage from getting keyed and vandalism. The highest amount your car insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your NX 200t from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against claims like hitting a parking meter, backing into a parked car, colliding with another moving vehicle and damaging your car on a curb. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Liability coverages – Liability coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as repair costs for stationary objects, funeral expenses, medical services and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, it’s very important that you do not sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There are many occasions where someone dropped full coverage only to regret that the savings was not a smart move. Your goal should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at the best price, but do not skimp to save money.
Insureds leave their current company for many reasons like policy cancellation, questionable increases in premium, delays in responding to claim requests and even unfair underwriting practices. No matter why you want to switch, finding a new insurance coverage company is not as difficult as it may seem.
