Companies offering auto insurance do not advertise all their discounts in an easy-to-find place, so we break down both the well known and the harder-to-find discounts you could be receiving.
Consumers should know that most discounts do not apply to the entire cost. The majority will only reduce individual premiums such as liability, collision or medical payments. So when the math indicates all those discounts means the company will pay you, insurance companies aren’t that generous.
A partial list of companies who might offer these money-saving discounts include:
Check with every prospective company what discounts are available to you. Some discounts might not apply everywhere.
When it comes to buying adequate coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a perfect coverage plan. Every situation is different.
For example, these questions can aid in determining whether or not you could use an agent’s help.
If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you may need to chat with a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, simply complete this short form.
Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy can be of help when determining the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses such as prosthetic devices, ambulance fees, hospital visits and dental work. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision can pay for claims such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, damaging your car on a curb and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive insurance covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like theft, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and a broken windshield. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability coverage can cover damage that occurs to people or other property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for things like emergency aid, medical services and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” 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.
Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked.
People leave their current company for any number of reasons including being labeled a high risk driver, policy cancellation, delays in responding to claim requests or questionable increases in premium. It doesn’t matter what your reason, finding a new company is pretty simple and you could end up saving a buck or two.
Discount 1994 Audi 100 insurance can be bought both online as well as from independent agents, so you should compare both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some insurance companies don’t offer online quoting and many times these regional insurance providers only sell through independent insurance agents.
When buying insurance coverage, don’t be tempted to sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. In too many instances, an insured dropped physical damage coverage to discover at claim time that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. Your aim should be to buy enough coverage at the best price, not the least amount of coverage.
