How to buy car insurance online

Reducing your 2016 GMC Terrain insurance rates is actually easier than you may think. All you need to do is invest a little time comparing price quotes provided by online insurance companies. Comparing prices online can be done in several different ways.

  1. The fastest and easiest way to find low rates is an all-inclusive rate comparison like this one (opens in new window). This type of form prevents you from having to do multiple quote forms for every car insurance company. Just one form will get you rate comparisons from multiple low-cost companies. It’s the fastest way to compare.
  2. A less efficient way to find more affordable insurance consists of visiting each company website and complete a new quote form. For instance, we’ll assume you want comparison quotes from Nationwide, State Farm and Progressive. You would need to visit each site and repeatedly type in your coverage information, which explains why we recommend starting with the first method.

  3. The least recommended way to find and compare rates is to drive around to local insurance agencies. The ability to quote online can eliminate the need for a local agent unless you have a complicated situation and need the trained guidance that only an agent can give. If you prefer, some companies allow you to compare the best prices online but purchase the actual policy in an agency.

Whichever way you use, try to keep exactly the same quote data for every quote you compare. If the quotes have different data it will be very difficult to make a fair rate comparison.

Tailor your car insurance coverage to you

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage, there really is not a best way to insure your cars. Each situation is unique.

For instance, these questions might point out whether or not you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • If I drive on a suspended license am I covered?
  • Why does it cost so much to insure a teen driver?
  • Do I need more liability coverage?
  • When can I cancel my policy?
  • Does medical payments coverage apply to all occupants?
  • Do I get a pro-rated refund if I cancel my policy early?
  • Do I need medical payments coverage since I have good health insurance?
  • Does my 2016 GMC Terrain qualify for pleasure use?
  • Is my trailer covered?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions then you might want to talk to an agent. To find an agent in your area, complete this form. It only takes a few minutes and may give you better protection.

The coverage is in the details

Understanding the coverages of car insurance aids in choosing which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Coverage for collisions

Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for things such as backing into a parked car, sustaining damage from a pot hole, crashing into a ditch, scraping a guard rail and rolling your car. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as fire damage, damage from getting keyed, theft, rock chips in glass and hail damage. The maximum payout a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Medical costs insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for immediate expenses such as X-ray expenses, ambulance fees and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Auto liability insurance

Liability insurance protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see values of 100/300/100 which means a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability can pay for things such as medical expenses, medical services, loss of income, legal defense fees and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as large an amount as possible.

UM/UIM Coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and damage to your GMC Terrain.

Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
