Want cheaper car insurance rates? Drivers have many options when trying to find low-cost Subaru WRX insurance. You can either spend your time calling around to get rate comparisons or utilize the internet to compare rates.
There is a better way to compare car insurance rates and you need to know the proper way to quote coverages on a Subaru and obtain the lowest possible price from local insurance agents and online providers.
There are a lot of ways to compare insurance coverage quotes, and some are easier and takes less work. You can waste a few hours (or days) driving to insurance companies in your area, or you could save time and use the web to accomplish the same thing much quicker.
The majority of car insurance companies belong to an insurance system where insurance shoppers send in one quote, and each company returns a rated price based on the submitted data. This system prevents you from having to do repetitive form submissions to each company. To enter your information into the quoting system, click here to start a free quote.
One minor caviat to comparing rates this way is you don’t know exactly which providers to get quotes from. So if you prefer to choose specific providers to compare, we have a page of the cheapest insurance coverage companies in your area. View list of insurance companies.
Whichever way you use, try to use nearly identical coverage information on every quote you get. If you use higher or lower deductibles it will be next to impossible to determine which company has the best rates.
Companies offering auto insurance don’t necessarily list every discount in an easy-to-find place, so the below list has both the well known as well as the least known discounts that you may qualify for.
A quick disclaimer, many deductions do not apply to your bottom line cost. Most only cut the price of certain insurance coverages like physical damage coverage or medical payments. So despite the fact that it appears it’s possible to get free car insurance, companies wouldn’t make money that way. Any qualifying discounts will definitely lower your policy cost.
A few popular companies and their possible discounts are outlined below.
It’s a good idea to ask each insurance company which discounts you qualify for. Some of the discounts discussed earlier may not apply in your area. If you would like to see a list of insurers who offer online auto insurance quotes, follow this link.

Having a good grasp of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Auto insurance terms can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Liability coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other people or property by causing an accident. It protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Another option is 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 can pay for claims like emergency aid, structural damage, court costs, bail bonds and pain and suffering. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision coverage covers damage to your WRX resulting from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for things such as crashing into a ditch, rolling your car and backing into a parked car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Subaru WRX.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Usually the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses such as pain medications, surgery and chiropractic care. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover both the driver and occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a deer, damage from flooding, theft and fire damage. The maximum payout a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
