Companies offering auto insurance don’t always publicize all their discounts very well, so we researched both well-publicized and the more hidden insurance savings. If you don’t get every credit possible, you are paying more than you should be.
It’s important to note that most credits do not apply to all coverage premiums. Some only apply to specific coverage prices like medical payments or collision. Just because it seems like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies don’t profit that way.
Car insurance companies who might offer some of the above discounts include:
Double check with each company which discounts they offer. Discounts may not be available everywhere.

Knowing the specifics of insurance can be of help when determining which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement.
Liability coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property 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 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for claims like emergency aid, medical expenses and medical services. 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.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses like EMT expenses, chiropractic care, ambulance fees, X-ray expenses and rehabilitation expenses. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover all 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 it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision insurance pays for damage to your XK resulting from a collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things like rolling your car, hitting a parking meter, hitting a mailbox, colliding with a tree and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your 2012 Jaguar XK.
Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as hitting a bird, damage from getting keyed, falling objects, theft and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
