Consumers have a choice when looking for low-cost Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive insurance. They can either spend hours driving around to compare prices or use the internet to compare rates.

There is a right way and a wrong way to buy auto insurance so you’re going to learn the absolute fastest way to compare rates on a Mercedes-Benz and find the lowest price.

Which auto insurance is cheapest?

There are a variety of methods to compare auto insurance quotes, and some are less labor-intensive and much quicker. You can waste a lot of time talking about coverages with insurance agencies in your area, or you can stay home and use the web to achieve your goal.

All the larger companies belong to an insurance system where prospective buyers enter their coverage request one time, and every company then gives them pricing for coverage. This eliminates the need for quote requests for each company. To find out how much you’re overpaying now click here (opens in new window).

The one disadvantage to doing it this way is buyers cannot specifically choose the companies you will receive quotes from. If you would rather choose from a list of companies to request quotes from, we have a page of low cost auto insurance companies in your area. Click to view list.

How you compare quotes is your choice, just do your best to enter exactly the same information for every quote you compare. If you compare different coverage information it’s not possible to make a fair comparison for your Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive.

Do you qualify for discounts?

Companies do not advertise their entire list of discounts in an easy-to-find place, so the list below gives a summary of a few of the more well known and also the more inconspicuous discounts you could be receiving when you buy car insurance online. If you’re not getting every credit possible, you are not getting the best rate possible.

  • Anti-lock Brakes – Vehicles with ABS braking systems or traction control can avoid accidents and the ABS can save up to 10%.
  • Driver Training Discounts – Taking time to complete a course that instructs on driving safety could cut 5% off your bill and also improve your driving technique.
  • Driving Data Discount – Drivers that enable their insurance company to look at when and where they use their vehicle by using a telematics device such as Drivewise from Allstate or Snapshot from Progressive could see a rate decrease if they are good drivers.
  • Passive Restraint Discount – Vehicles with factory air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems can receive discounts of 25 to 30%.
  • More Vehicles More Savings – Buying insurance for more than one vehicle on one policy qualifies for this discount.
  • Clubs and Organizations – Being in a qualifying organization could trigger savings on your next renewal.
  • Bundle and Save – If you combine your home and auto policies and place coverage with the same company you may earn approximately 10% to 15%.
  • Safety Restraint Discount – Requiring all passengers to buckle up could save 15% on the premium charged for medical payments and/or PIP.
  • Pay Early and Save – By paying your policy upfront as opposed to paying monthly you can avoid the installment charge.

It’s important to note that most credits do not apply to your bottom line cost. Some only reduce specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. So when it seems like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, you won’t be that lucky.

A few popular companies and some of the discounts can be found below.

  • Progressive offers premium reductions for continuous coverage, online quote discount, good student, online signing, and multi-vehicle.
  • The Hartford offers discounts including bundle, good student, defensive driver, anti-theft, driver training, and air bag.
  • Mercury Insurance offers discounts for location of vehicle, anti-theft, annual mileage, type of vehicle, ease of repair, and accident-free.
  • Geico may include discounts for daytime running lights, multi-vehicle, membership and employees, federal employee, five-year accident-free, seat belt use, and defensive driver.
  • AAA discounts include pay-in-full, AAA membership discount, education and occupation, good student, and good driver.
  • State Farm may offer discounts for accident-free, anti-theft, Drive Safe & Save, student away at school, and safe vehicle.

It’s a good idea to ask all the companies which discounts can lower your rates. Discounts may not be available in your area. To see providers that offer many of these discounts, click this link.

Don’t assume everyone needs the same auto insurance coverage

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage for your vehicles, there is no single plan that fits everyone. Each situation is unique.

These are some specific questions might help in determining if your insurance needs will benefit from professional help.

  • How can I find cheaper teen driver insurance?
  • Is my state a no-fault state?
  • When should I not file a claim?
  • Does my 2017 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive need full coverage?
  • Does my insurance cover my expensive audio equipment?
  • Do I need more liability coverage?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and may give you better protection.

The coverage is in the details

Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.

Liability insurance

Liability coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see liability limits of 100/300/100 which stand for a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against things like court costs, emergency aid, bail bonds and structural damage. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage

This provides protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Most of the time your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for expenses such as pain medications, chiropractic care, dental work and rehabilitation expenses. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive coverage

Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as fire damage, falling objects, hitting a bird and theft. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.

Collision coverage protection

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for things like colliding with a tree, sustaining damage from a pot hole, crashing into a ditch and damaging your car on a curb. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. You can also choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
