2017 Nissan GT-R Insurance Quotes – 5 Ways to Save

Searching for better insurance rates for your Nissan GT-R? Locating the lowest price insurance on the web may at first seem to be rather difficult for comparing and buying insurance on the web. With more and more companies, how are consumers expected to be able to compare every possible option in order to find the lowest rates?

Shopping for the lowest cost protection is simple if you know the tricks. Essentially every driver who is required by state law to have insurance coverage will most likely be able to save money. Although drivers can benefit by having an understanding of the way insurance companies sell insurance online because it can help you find the best coverage.

Lower rates by qualifying for these five discounts

Some insurance providers don’t always list all their discounts in an easy-to-find place, so we break down a few of the more well known and the more hidden discounts that you may qualify for.

  • Multi-line Discount – Select companies reward you with a break if you buy some life insurance too.
  • Discount for Passive Restraints – Vehicles equipped with air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems can qualify for discounts up to 30%.
  • Safety Course Discount – Taking time to complete a course in defensive driving can save you 5% or more and easily recoup the cost of the course.
  • Student in College – Any of your kids who are enrolled in a college that is more than 100 miles from home and do not take a car to college can be insured at a reduced rate.
  • ABS and Traction Control Discounts – Cars and trucks with ABS and/or traction control are safer to drive and will save you 10% or more.

As is typical with insurance, some of the credits will not apply to your bottom line cost. The majority will only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as liability and collision coverage. Even though it may seem like all those discounts means the company will pay you, nobody gets a free ride. Any qualifying discounts will definitely reduce the amount you have to pay.

Don’t listen to company ads

Insurance providers like Allstate and Progressive endlessly run ads on television and other media. They all advertise the message that people will save just by moving to them. How can each company charge you a lower premium? It’s all in the words they use.

Insurance companies are able to cherry pick for the right customer they prefer to insure. For example, this type of driver might be over the age of 45, has a clean driving record, and drives a lower-performance vehicle. A customer that hits that “sweet spot” will qualify for the lowest rates and will probably save money with a new company.

Potential customers who don’t measure up to the “perfect” profile will be charged higher prices which translates to the customer buying from someone else. Company advertisements say “people that switch” but not “everyone who gets a quote” save the amount stated. That is how insurance companies can confidently state the savings.

Because of the profiling, drivers should compare quotes as often as possible. It’s just too difficult to predict which insurance company will give you lower premium rates than your current company.

Auto insurance is unique, just like you

When it comes to choosing coverage, there isn’t really a perfect coverage plan. Every situation is different.

Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine whether or not you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Do I have coverage if my license is suspended?
  • Can I make deliveries for my home business?
  • Do I have newly-aquired coverage?
  • Do I really need UM/UIM coverage?
  • Can I get a multi-policy discount?
  • Should I have a commercial auto policy?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you may need to chat with an agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, simply complete this short form.

Car insurance specifics

Understanding the coverages of car insurance can help you determine appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. Car insurance terms can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your 2017 Nissan GT-R.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Usually these coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.

Medical payments and PIP coverage – Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for bills for prosthetic devices, funeral costs and doctor visits. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Collision coverage – Collision insurance pays for damage to your GT-R from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage protects against things like hitting a parking meter, sustaining damage from a pot hole, crashing into a building, rolling your car and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Auto liability – This coverage protects you from damage that occurs to people or other property. It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability insurance covers claims such as legal defense fees, court costs and structural damage. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive auto coverage – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as hitting a deer, falling objects, rock chips in glass and fire damage. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Coverage on a shoestring budget

We just showed you a lot of information how to reduce 2017 Nissan GT-R insurance prices online. It’s most important to understand that the more times you quote, the better chance you’ll have of finding low cost insurance coverage. You may be surprised to find that the lowest prices come from a small mutual company.

Cheap 2017 Nissan GT-R insurance can be bought both online as well as from insurance agents, and you should compare price quotes from both in order to have the best chance of saving money. A few companies may not offer online rate quotes and most of the time these small insurance companies prefer to sell through local independent agencies.

Insureds leave their current company for any number of reasons including extreme rates for teen drivers, not issuing a premium refund, policy non-renewal and policy cancellation. It doesn’t matter why you want to switch choosing a new company can be less work than you think.
