Discounts mean cheaper 2007 Saturn Aura insurance rates

Car insurance companies do not advertise every available discount very clearly, so here is a list some of the best known and the harder-to-find savings tricks you should be using.

  • College Student – Children who attend school more than 100 miles from home and do not have access to a covered vehicle can receive lower rates.
  • Discount for New Cars – Putting insurance coverage on a new car can be considerably cheaper compared to insuring an older model.
  • Federal Employees – Active or retired federal employment could cut as much as 10% off on Aura coverage depending on your company.
  • Memberships – Being a member of a civic or occupational organization could trigger savings on your policy on Aura coverage.
  • Passive Restraints – Vehicles equipped with air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems may earn rate discounts of up to 25% or more.
  • Pay Now and Pay Less – If paying your policy premium upfront instead of paying each month you can actually save on your bill.
  • Accident Waiver – A few companies allow you one accident before hitting you with a surcharge so long as you haven’t had any claims for a set time period.

Companies that possibly offer some of the above discounts include:

Double check with each company how you can save money. Some discounts may not apply in your state.

Insurance coverages explained

Knowing the specifics of your policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverages offered by insurance companies.

Collision coverage protection

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers things like driving through your garage door, sustaining damage from a pot hole, crashing into a building and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive insurance

Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like hitting a deer, hitting a bird, vandalism, theft and damage from getting keyed. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Coverage for medical expenses

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for bills such as funeral costs, chiropractic care, nursing services, pain medications and X-ray expenses. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Liability coverages

Liability coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people that is your fault. Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have policy limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability insurance covers claims such as structural damage, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, loss of income and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your 2007 Saturn Aura.

Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Shop around and save

You just learned many ways to save on 2007 Saturn Aura insurance. It’s most important to understand that the more price quotes you have, the better chance you’ll have of finding lower rates. You may be surprised to find that the most savings is with an unexpected company. Some small companies can often provide lower rates in certain areas as compared to the big name companies such as Allstate, GEICO and Progressive.

Cheap insurance can be bought both online as well as from independent agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best selection. There are still a few companies who don’t offer you the ability to get quotes online and these small insurance companies work with independent agents.

As you prepare to switch companies, it’s a bad idea to buy less coverage just to save a little money. There are a lot of situations where someone dropped physical damage coverage only to regret that they should have had better coverage. The aim is to find the BEST coverage at an affordable rate while still protecting your assets.
