Companies don’t always advertise every discount in a way that’s easy to find, so we took the time to find both well-publicized and the harder-to-find discounts you could be receiving. If you aren’t receiving every discount possible, you are paying more than you should be.
A little note about advertised discounts, many deductions do not apply to your bottom line cost. Most cut individual premiums such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. So even though they make it sound like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies wouldn’t make money that way.

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Medical payments and PIP coverage – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for bills for X-ray expenses, prosthetic devices and funeral costs. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Comprehensive auto coverage – This coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for claims like hitting a deer, hitting a bird, damage from a tornado or hurricane, hail damage and damage from getting keyed. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision – Collision coverage covers damage to your CL-Class resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers things like sustaining damage from a pot hole, rolling your car and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Liability coverage – This coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see values of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers claims such as medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Mercedes-Benz CL-Class.
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.
