Shop car insurance online

When shopping for car insurance there are multiple ways to get quotes from many different insurance companies. The easiest way to find cheaper 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport rates is to use the internet to compare rates. This can be done using a couple different methods.

  • The fastest way to get quotes for comparison is a comparison rater form (click to open form in new window). This method saves time by eliminating separate quotation requests to each individual car insurance company. One quote request gets insurance cost estimates from all major companies. This is by far the quickest method.
  • A harder way to analyze rates consists of visiting each individual company website and request a quote. For examples sake, we’ll pretend you want to get rates from USAA, Progressive and Liberty Mutual. In order to compare rates, you need to go to each individual site and repeatedly enter your information, and that explains why we recommend the first method.

The approach you take is up to you, just be sure to compare the same coverage limits and deductibles for each quote you get. If you use different data it’s not possible to determine the lowest rate for your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Just a small difference in coverage limits may cause a big price difference. Keep in mind that comparing all the rates in your area will enable you to find the best offered rates.

Car insurance coverage specifics

Having a good grasp of a car insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

UM/UIM Coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.

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 then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as theft, falling objects, fire damage and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum amount your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Coverage for liability

Liability insurance provides protection from damage that occurs to people or other property. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability insurance covers things such as legal defense fees, funeral expenses, emergency aid and attorney fees. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but buy as large an amount as possible.

Auto collision coverage

Collision insurance pays for damage to your Santa Fe Sport resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage pays for things like sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter, backing into a parked car, driving through your garage door and scraping a guard rail. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Medical costs insurance

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for immediate expenses such as prosthetic devices, nursing services, funeral costs and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
