Save money by taking advantage of these discounts

Properly insuring your vehicles can get expensive, but there could be available discounts that you may not know about. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied at the time of purchase, but some must be specifically requested prior to receiving the credit. If you don’t get every credit available, you are paying more than you should be.

  • Senior Discount – Older drivers can possibly qualify for a small decrease in premiums on Elantra insurance.
  • Organization Discounts – Affiliation with certain professional organizations may earn a discount on your policy on Elantra insurance.
  • Seat Belts Save more than Lives – Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to use their safety belts could save 15% on the medical payments or PIP coverage costs.
  • Lower Rates for Military – Being on active duty in the military may qualify for rate reductions.
  • Drive Safe and Save – Drivers who avoid accidents can get discounts for up to 45% lower rates on Elantra insurance than drivers with accident claims.

Drivers should understand that most discount credits are not given to the entire policy premium. Most only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as medical payments or collision. Just because you may think you would end up receiving a 100% discount, it doesn’t quite work that way. But all discounts will bring down your premiums.

When should I use an insurance agent?

When buying proper insurance coverage, there isn’t really a perfect coverage plan. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s.

For instance, these questions may help highlight whether your personal situation would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Is my business laptop covered if it gets stolen from my vehicle?
  • Do I need rental car coverage?
  • Is a new car covered when I drive it off the dealer lot?
  • Is business equipment covered while in my vehicle?
  • Is my vehicle covered by my employer’s policy when using it for work?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my car?
  • How does medical payments coverage work?
  • Am I better off with higher deductibles on my 1992 Hyundai Elantra?
  • Should I have a commercial auto policy?
  • How much liability do I need to cover my assets?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions, then you may want to think about talking to an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, complete this form. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and can help protect your family.

Can you really save that much by switching?

Consumers get pounded daily by advertisements for the lowest price auto insurance from the likes of Progressive, Allstate and Geico. All the companies make the same claim that you can save if you move your coverage to them.

How do they all make the same claim?

All companies have a certain “appetite” for the type of customer that is profitable for them. An example of a profitable customer could be a mature driver, has no driving citations, and has excellent credit. A customer getting a price quote who matches those parameters receives the best rates and most likely will pay quite a bit less when switching companies.

Drivers who do not match these standards will be charged higher premiums and this can result in business not being written. The ads say “drivers who switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save that much. That’s the way companies can make the claims of big savings.

That is why you need to quote coverage with many companies. It’s not possible to predict which insurance companies will provide you with the cheapest Hyundai Elantra insurance rates.

Car insurance coverage basics

Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Comprehensive coverage – Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like rock chips in glass, damage from flooding and falling objects. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Medical payments coverage and PIP – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses such as prosthetic devices, chiropractic care, X-ray expenses, EMT expenses and surgery. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers you and your occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Usually these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Collision coverage – Collision coverage pays for damage to your Elantra resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage protects against things such as driving through your garage door, backing into a parked car and colliding with another moving vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.

Liability coverage – Liability insurance will cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit 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 loss of income, repair costs for stationary objects and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.

One last thing about your coverage

Consumers change insurance companies for a variety of reasons including denial of a claim, being labeled a high risk driver, questionable increases in premium or even policy cancellation. It doesn’t matter why you want to switch finding a new insurance company can be easy and end up saving you some money.

In this article, we covered many ways to save on 1992 Hyundai Elantra insurance. The key thing to remember is the more companies you get rates for, the higher your chance of finding lower rates. Drivers may discover the lowest rates come from some of the lesser-known companies.

As you prepare to switch companies, it’s very important that you do not skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. There have been many cases where someone sacrificed uninsured motorist or liability limits and discovered at claim time that the small savings ended up costing them much more. Your strategy should be to get the best coverage possible at the best price.
