The fastest way that we advise to compare insurance rates from multiple companies is to understand most insurance companies will pay a fee to give free rates quotes. To begin a comparison, all you need to do is give them rating details like if you’re married, if a SR-22 is needed, any included safety features, and whether the vehicles are used for commuting. The rating information gets transmitted to multiple companies and you will receive price estimates within a short period of time.

Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining the right coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses such as rehabilitation expenses, doctor visits and ambulance fees. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage protection
Collision insurance covers damage to your Ioniq Hybrid resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers things such as colliding with a tree, sideswiping another vehicle, driving through your garage door and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like hitting a deer, fire damage and hitting a bird. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability auto insurance
Liability insurance will cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people by causing an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 which stand for a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability insurance covers things such as medical expenses, emergency aid, structural damage and funeral expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
