How to Get Cheap Car Insurance

Finding lower car insurance rates is not a difficult process. Drivers just need to spend a little time comparing rates from different insurance companies. This can be done in just a few minutes using one of these methods.

The first (and easiest) way to compare a lot of rates at once is an all-inclusive rate comparison click here to open form in new window. This method eliminates the need for repetitive form entry for each company you want a rate for. One quote request will get you rate comparisons from car insurance companies with the best prices. This is by far the quickest method.

A different way to find lower rates is going to each company’s website to complete their respective quote request forms.

Do you really save 40% when you switch?

Consumers get pounded daily by advertisements that promise big savings from the likes of State Farm, Allstate and GEICO. They all have a common claim about savings after switching your coverage to them.

How can each company make almost identical claims? This is how they do it.

Different companies can use profiling for the type of driver that earns them a profit. An example of a driver they prefer might be profiled as between the ages of 40 and 55, insures multiple vehicles, and chooses high deductibles. Any driver that hits that “sweet spot” receives the best rates and as a result will probably save quite a bit of money when switching.

Potential customers who don’t meet these standards will be quoted more money which usually ends up with business going elsewhere. The ads state “people who switch” not “everybody who quotes” save that much money. This is how companies can truthfully make the claims of big savings. This emphasizes why drivers should get as many quotes as possible. It’s just too difficult to predict which insurance company will fit your personal profile best.

Pay less for HUMMER H2 insurance

Companies offering auto insurance don’t list every available discount in an easy-to-find place, so the following is a list of both the well known and also the lesser-known discounts you could be receiving. If they aren’t giving you every credit possible, you’re just leaving money on the table.

  • Seat Belts Save more than Lives – Requiring all passengers to wear their seat belts could cut 10% or more on the medical payments or PIP coverage costs.
  • No Claims – Good drivers with no accidents can save substantially as compared to frequent claim filers.
  • College Student – Youth drivers who attend school more than 100 miles from home and do not have a car can receive lower rates.
  • Lower Rates for Military – Being deployed with a military unit may qualify for rate reductions.
  • Theft Prevention Discount – Vehicles equipped with anti-theft or alarm systems prevent vehicle theft and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Passive Restraints and Air Bags – Vehicles with factory air bags can qualify for discounts of 20% or more.
  • Multiple Policy Discount – If you have multiple policies with the same insurance company you could get a discount of 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • More Vehicles More Savings – Having multiple cars or trucks on one policy may reduce the rate for each vehicle.

Keep in mind that most of the big mark downs will not be given the the whole policy. A few only apply to specific coverage prices like comprehensive or collision. Even though it may seem like you can get free auto insurance, companies wouldn’t make money that way.

Car insurance companies that possibly offer these money-saving discounts are:

It’s a good idea to ask every prospective company what discounts are available to you. Some discounts might not be offered everywhere.

Tailor your coverage to you

For instance, these questions can help discover whether you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?
  • Is business property covered if stolen from my car?
  • When should I not file a claim?
  • Do I get a pro-rated refund if I cancel my policy early?
  • I have good health insurance, so how much medical payments coverage do I need?
  • Do I need higher collision deductibles?
  • Who is covered by my policy?

If you can’t answer these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, simply complete this short form. It’s fast, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Auto insurance coverage basics

Learning about specific coverages of auto insurance aids in choosing the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Liability car insurance

Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property that is your fault. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see 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 can pay for things like funeral expenses, pain and suffering and attorney fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like theft, fire damage, damage from getting keyed, hitting a bird and vandalism. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.

Collision protection

This pays for damage to your H2 from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a mailbox and sideswiping another vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.

Medical expense insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses for surgery, doctor visits, hospital visits and pain medications. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Coverage on a shoestring budget

Cost effective 2007 HUMMER H2 insurance can be found both online in addition to many insurance agents, and you should compare price quotes from both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. There are still a few companies who do not provide you the ability to get quotes online and many times these regional insurance providers only sell through independent insurance agents.

As you shop your coverage around, don’t be tempted to reduce coverage to reduce premium. There are a lot of situations where drivers have reduced liability limits or collision coverage only to discover later that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. Your aim should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.

People who switch companies do it for a number of reasons such as denial of a claim, delays in responding to claim requests, high prices and even policy cancellation. Regardless of your reason, finding a new insurance coverage company is easier than you think.
