1991 Chevrolet Camaro Insurance Cost

Looking for cheaper car insurance rates for your Chevrolet Camaro? I can’t think of a single person who looks forward to buying car insurance, especially when the price is too high.

Multiple insurance companies compete for your hard-earned dollar, and it can be difficult to compare rates and get the definite best rates possible.

You should take the time to compare rates occasionally since insurance rates are usually higher with each renewal. Despite the fact that you may have had the lowest rates for Camaro insurance two years ago the chances are good that you can find a lower rate today. There is too much inaccurate information about car insurance on the internet, so by reading this article, you’re going to learn some great ideas on how to find affordable car insurance.

Companies offer discounts so take them!

Car insurance companies don’t necessarily list all available discounts in an easy-to-find place, so we break down both the well known and also the lesser-known savings tricks you should be using.

  • Multiple Policy Discount – If you have multiple policies with the same company you may save 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Government Employees – Being employed by or retired from a federal job can save as much as 8% for Camaro insurance with a few car insurance companies.
  • Driver’s Ed – Cut your cost by having your teen driver complete a driver education course in high school.
  • Multi-car Discount – Buying insurance for more than one vehicle on one policy may reduce the rate for each vehicle.
  • 55 and Retired – Mature drivers may be able to get a small decrease in premiums for Camaro insurance.
  • Defensive Driver – Taking a course teaching defensive driving skills could possibly earn you a 5% discount depending on where you live.

Keep in mind that most discount credits are not given to your bottom line cost. Most only apply to specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. So even though they make it sound like you can get free auto insurance, it just doesn’t work that way.

Check with each company what discounts are available to you. Discounts might not be offered in your state.

Factors determining your Chevy Camaro insurance premium

Smart consumers have a good feel for the different types of things that go into determining your insurance coverage rates. Having a good understanding of what controls the rates you pay enables informed choices that can help you get big savings.

  • No coverage gaps is important – Letting your insurance expire will be a quick way to increase your insurance coverage rates. Not only will you pay more, but being ticketed for driving with no insurance can result in a hefty fine and possibly a revoked license.Then you may be required to submit proof of financial responsibility or a SR-22 with your state DMV.
  • Don’t skimp on liability – Liability coverage provides coverage if you are found liable for personal injury or accident damage. It provides you with a defense in court which can be incredibly expensive. Carrying liability coverage is mandatory and cheap when compared with rates for comp and collision, so do not skimp.
  • Do you know you’re credit rating? – A driver’s credit rating is a huge factor in your rate calculation. Drivers who have high credit ratings tend to be better drivers and file fewer claims than drivers with lower credit scores. If your credit score can use some improvement, you could pay less to insure your 1991 Chevrolet Camaro by improving your credit score.
  • Safer occupants lowers premiums – Safer cars tend to have better insurance rates. Safe vehicles result in less severe injuries and better occupant protection translates into savings for insurance companies passed on to you as lower rates. If the Chevy Camaro has ratings of a minimum four stars on Safercar.gov or an “acceptable” rating on iihs.org you may qualify for a discount.
  • Where do you drive? – The more miles you rack up on your Chevy in a year the more you’ll pay to insure your vehicle. Most insurance companies price each vehicle’s coverage based on their usage. Cars left parked in the garage qualify for better rates compared to those used for work or business. Make sure your insurance coverage policy properly reflects how each vehicle is driven. Incorrect usage on your Camaro can cost quite a bit.
  • A clean driving record saves money – Even a single speeding ticket may increase your cost by as much as thirty percent. Drivers with clean records get better rates compared to drivers with tickets. Drivers who get flagrant violations such as hit and run, DWI or reckless driving convictions may be required to submit a SR-22 or proof of financial responsibility with their state DMV in order to keep their license.
  • Older drivers pay less – Teen drivers tend to be more careless when driving so they pay higher insurance coverage rates. Parents adding a young driver onto a policy can be quite pricey. More mature drivers are viewed as being more responsible, file fewer claims and receive fewer citations.
  • Keep rates low by being claim-free – Companies generally give cheaper rates to drivers who file claims infrequently. If you are a frequent claim filer, you can definitely plan on either higher rates or even cancellation. Insurance coverage is designed for major claims that would cause financial hardship.

Do I just need basic coverages?

When choosing adequate coverage for your vehicles, there is no cookie cutter policy. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s so this has to be addressed. These are some specific questions can aid in determining if your insurance needs might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Does my car insurance cover rental cars?
  • Does my liability insurance cover pulling a trailer or camper?
  • Are all vehicle passengers covered by medical payments coverage?
  • Do I need PIP coverage since I have good health insurance?
  • What is covered by UM/UIM coverage?
  • Am I covered when driving someone else’s vehicle?
  • Do I have coverage when pulling a U-Haul trailer?
  • Should I sign the liability waiver when renting a car?
  • Do I have coverage when using my vehicle for my home business?
  • Is my teenager covered with friends in the car?

If you’re not sure about those questions, then you may want to think about talking to an agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, fill out this quick form or click here for a list of insurance coverage companies in your area.

Coverages available on your auto insurance policy

Having a good grasp of a auto insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.

Auto liability

Liability insurance provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.

Liability can pay for things such as medical expenses, structural damage, medical services and emergency aid. 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 or underinsured coverage

This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Chevy Camaro.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.

Collision coverage

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Camaro from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage protects against things like crashing into a ditch, scraping a guard rail, damaging your car on a curb and crashing into a building. Collision is rather expensive coverage, 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.

Comprehensive protection

This covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as rock chips in glass, vandalism, a broken windshield, falling objects and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Medical expense coverage

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses for hospital visits, X-ray expenses and chiropractic care. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Compare but don’t skimp

Budget-conscious 1991 Chevy Camaro insurance can be sourced online as well as from independent agents, so you should compare both to have the best selection. Some insurance companies don’t offer online price quotes and usually these regional insurance providers provide coverage only through local independent agents.

As you shop your coverage around, it’s a bad idea to buy less coverage just to save a little money. There are too many instances where an insured cut liability coverage limits and learned later that it was a big error on their part. The ultimate goal is to buy enough coverage at a price you can afford.
