Having a good grasp of auto insurance can help you determine the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for prosthetic devices, surgery, pain medications, dental work and X-ray expenses. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as attorney fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, bail bonds, funeral expenses and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
This provides protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Audi 80.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Collision insurance pays for damage to your 80 resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims such as backing into a parked car, sustaining damage from a pot hole, driving through your garage door and damaging your car on a curb. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a bird, hitting a deer and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
We just covered a lot of information how to save on 1992 Audi 80 insurance. The most important thing to understand is the more you quote, the better your chances of lowering your rates. Consumers could even find that the best price on insurance is with the smaller companies. Some small companies may have significantly lower rates on certain market segments than the large multi-state companies such as State Farm or Progressive.
Budget-conscious insurance is possible online and also from your neighborhood agents, and you need to price shop both so you have a total pricing picture. Some insurance companies may not provide online quoting and these regional insurance providers work with independent agents.
When shopping online for insurance, don’t be tempted to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In many cases, drivers have reduced liability limits or collision coverage and learned later that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. Your goal should be to buy a smart amount of coverage for the lowest price while still protecting your assets.
