Discounts are basically free money

Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but there are discounts available to help offset the cost. Certain discounts will be triggered automatically when you purchase, but less common discounts must be specifically requested in order for you to get them. If you aren’t receiving every discount available, you are throwing money away.

  • Multiple Policy Discount – When you combine your home and auto insurance with the same company you will save up to 20% off your total premium.
  • Driver’s Ed – Require your teen driver to complete a driver education course in school.
  • Accident Free – Good drivers with no accidents pay less when compared to drivers who are more careless.
  • Discount for Swiching Early – Select companies give a discount for switching to them before your current expiration date. The savings is around 10%.
  • Passive Restraint Discount – Vehicles with factory air bags or automatic seat belts can get savings up to 30%.
  • Payment Discounts – If you pay your bill all at once instead of monthly or quarterly installments you could save up to 5%.

As a disclaimer on discounts, many deductions do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most cut the price of certain insurance coverages like collision or personal injury protection. Just because you may think you would end up receiving a 100% discount, it just doesn’t work that way. But all discounts will help reduce the amount you have to pay.

Which insurance is the “right” coverage?

When it comes to choosing the best insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there is no “best” method to buy coverage. Everyone’s situation is unique.

For example, these questions may help you determine whether you will benefit from professional help.

  • Do I have any recourse if my insurance company denies a claim?
  • Does liability extend to a camper or trailer?
  • Why is insurance for a teen driver so high?
  • What is the rate difference between pleasure use and commuting?
  • Is my 2006 Cadillac STS-V covered for flood damage?
  • Are split liability limits better than a combined single limit?
  • Am I covered if I hit my neighbor’s mailbox?
  • Am I getting all the discounts available?
  • Is my trailer covered?
  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, complete this form. It only takes a few minutes and can help protect your family.

Don’t be fooled by advertising claims

Consumers constantly see and hear ads for the lowest price auto insurance from companies such as Allstate, Geico and Progressive. All the ads make the same claim about savings if you switch your policy.

How can each company make the same claim? This is how they do it.

Different companies can use profiling for the right customer they prefer to insure. An example of a preferred risk could possibly be a mature driver, owns a home, and has a short commute. A propective insured who fits that profile will get the preferred rates and most likely will pay quite a bit less when switching companies.

Potential insureds who don’t measure up to the “perfect” profile will be charged higher premiums which leads to the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ads say “people who switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save that much money. That’s why insurance companies can make the claims of big savings.

That is why you should compare as many rates as you can. Because you never know which car insurance company will fit your personal profile best.

Specific coverage details

Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Auto liability

This coverage will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see values of 100/300/100 which stand for a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability can pay for things like structural damage, funeral expenses and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Cadillac STS-V.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Collision insurance

This pays for damage to your STS-V from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision can pay for claims like damaging your car on a curb, sideswiping another vehicle, sustaining damage from a pot hole, scraping a guard rail and rolling your car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Coverage for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for expenses such as doctor visits, nursing services, dental work, hospital visits and X-ray expenses. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers you and your occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive coverages

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a deer and vandalism. The most your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Shop smart and save

We just showed you many tips how you can reduce 2006 Cadillac STS-V insurance prices online. The most important thing to understand is the more you quote, the higher your chance of finding lower rates. You may be surprised to find that the lowest rates come from the least-expected company.

Budget-conscious insurance is attainable online and with local insurance agents, so you should compare both to get a complete price analysis. Some insurance companies do not offer online price quotes and most of the time these small, regional companies sell through independent agents.

While you’re price shopping online, it’s not a good idea to reduce needed coverages to save money. There are too many instances where consumers will sacrifice physical damage coverage and learned later they didn’t purchase enough coverage. The aim is to buy the best coverage you can find for the lowest price while still protecting your assets.
