Car insurance companies do not advertise all their discounts very well, so we took the time to find some of the best known and also the lesser-known discounts you could be receiving. If you don’t get every credit you deserve, you’re just leaving money on the table.
It’s important to note that most of the big mark downs will not be given to your bottom line cost. A few only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as liability and collision coverage. Just because it seems like all the discounts add up to a free policy, insurance coverage companies aren’t that generous.

Consumers can’t get away from ads for car insurance savings from companies such as Allstate, Geico and Progressive. All the companies make an identical promise that you can save if you move your policy.
How does each company claim to save you money?
All companies have a preferred profile for the right customer that earns them a profit. For example, a driver they prefer could possibly be over the age of 40, owns a home, and has a short commute. A propective insured who fits that profile will get the preferred rates and most likely will save when they switch companies.
Drivers who don’t qualify for this ideal profile will be quoted higher rates which leads to business not being written. The ads state “people who switch” not “everybody who quotes” save that much money. That’s the way insurance companies can make the claims of big savings. This emphasizes why it’s extremely important to get quotes from several different companies. It is impossible to predict which car insurance company will fit your personal profile best.
Understanding the coverages of insurance can help you determine the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Comprehensive insurance – Comprehensive insurance 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 coverage pays for things such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, theft and vandalism. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for immediate expenses like funeral costs, chiropractic care and dental work. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available and may carry a deductible
Collision coverages – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your GT-R resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for things like colliding with another moving vehicle, rolling your car, scraping a guard rail, hitting a mailbox and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
Liability coverages – Liability insurance provides protection from damage that occurs to people or other property by causing an accident. It protects you from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have 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 property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability coverage protects against things like pain and suffering, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical expenses and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Nissan GT-R.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.
Consumers who switch companies do it for a variety of reasons including unfair underwriting practices, poor customer service, delays in responding to claim requests or even questionable increases in premium. Regardless of your reason, choosing a new insurance company is pretty simple and you could end up saving a buck or two.
