Companies offering auto insurance do not advertise all their discounts in an easy-to-find place, so we took the time to find both well-publicized and also the lesser-known ways to save on insurance. If they aren’t giving you every credit possible, you are throwing money away.
Keep in mind that some credits don’t apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only cut individual premiums such as collision or personal injury protection. Just because it seems like it’s possible to get free car insurance, you’re out of luck.

Knowing the specifics of insurance can help you determine which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Collision insurance covers damage to your Silhouette caused by collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with a tree and backing into a parked car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Oldsmobile Silhouette.
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. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.
Liability insurance will cover damage or injury you incur to a person or their property that is your fault. 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. As an example, you may have limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability coverage pays for claims like medical expenses, attorney fees and emergency aid. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims like damage from flooding, damage from getting keyed, theft and a broken windshield. The maximum payout a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Coverage for medical expenses
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for short-term medical expenses like ambulance fees, X-ray expenses and rehabilitation expenses. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Insureds who switch companies do it for many reasons like being labeled a high risk driver, delays in responding to claim requests, policy non-renewal and high rates after DUI convictions. Regardless of your reason, finding a great new company is not as hard as you think.
