Discounts are available to cut your rates

The price of auto insurance can be rather high, but there are discounts available that many people don’t even know exist. A few discounts will automatically apply at the time of purchase, but a few need to be manually applied before you get the savings. If you’re not getting every credit you deserve, you’re paying more than you need to.

  • Homeowners Savings – Owning a home may earn you a small savings because owning a home shows financial diligence.
  • Passive Restraints – Factory air bags can receive discounts of more than 20%.
  • Federal Government Employee – Active or retired federal employment can save as much as 8% on Grand Vitara coverage with certain companies.
  • Club Memberships – Participating in a professional or civic organization could trigger savings when buying insurance on Grand Vitara coverage.
  • Distant Student – Any of your kids who attend school more than 100 miles from home and don’t have a car can be insured at a reduced rate.
  • Discount for Life Insurance – Some companies give better rates if you take out life insurance from them.
  • Pay Now and Pay Less – If paying your policy premium upfront instead of monthly or quarterly installments you could save up to 5%.
  • Low Mileage Discounts – Low mileage vehicles could qualify for lower rates on the low mileage vehicles.

Keep in mind that many deductions do not apply to the entire policy premium. Some only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like comprehensive or collision. So when the math indicates having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, you won’t be that lucky. But all discounts will cut your premiums.

Before buying, ask each company how you can save money. Discounts may not be available in your area.

Car insurance coverage information

Knowing the specifics of car insurance can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverages found on most car insurance policies.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for bills such as ambulance fees, dental work, pain medications and doctor visits. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers all vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s 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. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Usually these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Auto liability

This will cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. Liability 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 commonly see liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Occasionally you may see one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage pays for things such as structural damage, funeral expenses, bail bonds and emergency aid. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive coverage

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, hail damage, falling objects, rock chips in glass and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Auto collision coverage

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

Collision coverage pays for things like rolling your car, crashing into a building, hitting a mailbox, crashing into a ditch and driving through your garage door. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
