A little note about advertised discounts, most discounts do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most cut specific coverage prices like comp or med pay. So when it seems like you could get a free insurance policy, you’re out of luck. But any discount will reduce your overall premium however.

Coverage for medical payments
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for bills like X-ray expenses, ambulance fees and funeral costs. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover both the driver and occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Uninsured and underinsured coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time these coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
This can cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and 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. As an example, you may have liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use a combined limit which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage protects against things like legal defense fees, court costs, emergency aid, repair costs for stationary objects and attorney fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, theft, fire damage and hitting a bird. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things such as backing into a parked car, damaging your car on a curb and rolling your car. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
When shopping online for auto insurance, you should never buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In many instances, consumers will sacrifice collision coverage and learned later that it was a big mistake. Your aim should be to buy enough coverage at an affordable rate.
