Buying insurance coverage is not cheap, but you might be missing out on some discounts to reduce the price significantly. Certain discounts will be triggered automatically at the time you complete a quote, but some may not be applied and must be requested specifically before you get the savings.

Most only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like physical damage coverage or medical payments. So even though it sounds like all those discounts means the company will pay you, it doesn’t quite work that way. Any qualifying discounts will positively reduce the amount you have to pay.
Some of the larger companies that may offer policyholders some of the above discounts possibly include:

Learning about specific coverages of your policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are the usual coverages found on most car insurance policies.
Collision coverages – This will pay to fix damage to your Quattroporte resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a ditch and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as hitting a deer, damage from getting keyed, hail damage and fire damage. The maximum payout your car insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – 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 also any damage incurred to your Maserati Quattroporte.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is very important. Frequently these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Liability – This coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined limit which limits claims to one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability insurance covers claims like funeral expenses, loss of income, structural damage and court costs. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Medical expense insurance – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses for chiropractic care, X-ray expenses, funeral costs and nursing services. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
