  2. A harder way to obtain and compare quotes online requires visiting the website for each individual company to complete their respective quote request forms. For instance, let’s say you want comparison quotes from Geico, Esurance and Progressive.

Whichever method you choose, ensure you are comparing the exact same coverages and limits for every company. If you use different values for each quote then you won’t be able to make a fair comparison for your Suzuki Grand Vitara.

Lots of discounts mean lots of savings

Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, but you may find discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied when you quote, but less common discounts must be manually applied before being credited. If you’re not getting every credit you qualify for, you’re just leaving money on the table.

  • Payment Method – If you pay your bill all at once rather than paying monthly you can actually save on your bill.
  • Use Seat Belts – Buckling up and requiring all passengers to use their safety belts can save up to 15% on the medical payments or PIP coverage costs.
  • Drivers Ed for Students – Have your child successfully complete driver’s ed class if offered at their school.
  • Good Students Pay Less – This discount can save 20 to 25%. The good student discount can last until age 25.
  • Fewer Miles Equal More Savings – Keeping the miles down on your Suzuki can qualify you for discounted rates on garaged vehicles.

Drivers should understand that some credits don’t apply to your bottom line cost. Some only reduce specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. So when it seems like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, you’re out of luck. Any qualifying discounts will help reduce your premiums.

Insurance coverage breakdown

Having a good grasp of a insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. These are typical coverage types found on the average insurance policy.

Liability coverages

This coverage can cover damage that occurs to other people or property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see values of 25/50/25 which stand for a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined limit which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage protects against things like loss of income, funeral expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and court costs. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying higher limits if possible.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This coverage gives you protection when other motorists 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 Suzuki Grand Vitara.

Since a lot of 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 is a good idea. Normally these coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Coverage for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses for things like pain medications, hospital visits, EMT expenses, prosthetic devices and surgery. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Collision coverage

This covers damage to your Grand Vitara resulting from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as sideswiping another vehicle, backing into a parked car, rolling your car and crashing into a building. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive coverages

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims like fire damage, damage from getting keyed, damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a bird and hitting a deer. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
