These discounts can lower your rates

Auto insurance companies do not list all available discounts very clearly, so here is a list both the well known and also the lesser-known auto insurance savings. If you’re not getting every credit possible, you are paying more than you should be.

  • Own a Home – Being a homeowner can help you save on auto insurance because maintaining a house requires personal responsibility.
  • Club Memberships – Belonging to a qualifying organization could qualify you for a break when shopping for auto insurance for Forte coverage.
  • Accident Waiver – A few companies will allow you to have one accident before hitting you with a surcharge if your claims history is clear for a certain period of time.
  • Good Student – Getting good grades can get you a discount of up to 25%. Earning this discount can benefit you up to age 25.
  • Anti-lock Brake Discount – Cars that have steering control and anti-lock brakes can avoid accidents and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
  • Use Seat Belts – Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to buckle their seat belts can save up to 15% off your PIP or medical payments premium.
  • Paperwork-free – A few companies may give you up to $50 for buying your policy digitally online.
  • Safe Drivers – Insureds without accidents may save up to 50% more for Forte coverage than drivers with accidents.

Drivers should understand that some of the credits will not apply to all coverage premiums. A few only apply to individual premiums such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. So when it seems like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, you won’t be that lucky.

Companies that possibly offer these discounts are:

Double check with all companies you are considering how you can save money. Discounts might not apply in your state.

Different people need different coverages

When buying proper insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a “best” method to buy coverage. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs.

For example, these questions might help in determining whether you could use an agent’s help.

  • What are the best liability limits?
  • How many claims can I have before being cancelled?
  • How can I get my company to pay me more for my totalled car?
  • Am I covered when pulling a rental trailer?
  • Are all vehicle passengers covered by medical payments coverage?
  • Is rental equipment covered for theft or damage?
  • How high should my uninsured/underinsured coverage be in my state?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but one or more may apply to you, you may need to chat with a licensed insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, complete this form. It is quick, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Insurance coverage specifics

Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy aids in choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Collision coverage

This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Forte resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage pays for things like damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door, crashing into a ditch, rolling your car and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability coverages

This provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for 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 liability limits of 100/300/100 that means you have a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage protects against things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, legal defense fees and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible.

Coverage for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for bills for things like rehabilitation expenses, nursing services, hospital visits, ambulance fees and funeral costs. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Kia Forte.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Comprehensive coverages

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

Comprehensive coverage pays for things like falling objects, fire damage and hail damage. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

A penny earned…

Cheaper 2010 Kia Forte insurance can be bought online in addition to many insurance agents, and you should compare price quotes from both to have the best chance of lowering rates. There are still a few companies who do not provide online quoting and most of the time these small, regional companies sell through independent agents.

Insureds change insurance companies for a variety of reasons including policy non-renewal, extreme rates for teen drivers, delays in responding to claim requests and high rates after DUI convictions. No matter why you want to switch, finding a great new company is not as difficult as it may seem.

We just presented a lot of techniques to compare insurance prices online. The key thing to remember is the more companies you get rates for, the higher the chance of saving money. Consumers may even find the best price on auto insurance is with a small mutual company.
