Looking for lower insurance rates for your Nissan Frontier? Are you a victim of high-priced insurance? Trust us, there are lots of people in the same boat. There are many insurers to buy insurance from, and although it’s a good thing to have a selection, it can be more challenging to compare rates and find the lowest cost insurance.
Companies offering auto insurance don’t list every discount in a way that’s easy to find, so the following is a list of some of the best known and also the lesser-known ways to save on auto insurance. If you aren’t receiving every discount available, you’re just leaving money on the table.
Consumers should know that most discount credits are not given to your bottom line cost. Some only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like collision or personal injury protection. So when the math indicates all the discounts add up to a free policy, you won’t be that lucky.

Double check with every prospective company which discounts you may be entitled to. Savings may not apply in your area.

Knowing the specifics of your policy helps when choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverages available from insurance companies.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a parking meter, colliding with a tree and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as a broken windshield, falling objects, damage from getting keyed, fire damage and hitting a bird. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for things like surgery, doctor visits and prosthetic devices. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Coverage for liability
Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to a person or their property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have 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.
Liability coverage pays for things like pain and suffering, loss of income and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
When shopping online for auto insurance, you should never sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There are many occasions where someone dropped full coverage and discovered at claim time that it was a big error on their part. The aim is to get the best coverage possible for the lowest price while not skimping on critical coverages.
