Discounts to lower Hyundai Sonata insurance rates

Car insurance can cost a lot, but companies offer discounts that you may not know about. Most are applied when you get a quote, but a few need to be asked about prior to getting the savings.

  • Resident Student – Youth drivers who attend school more than 100 miles from home without a vehicle on campus can be insured at a reduced rate.
  • Good Students Pay Less – A discount for being a good student can be rewarded with saving of up to 25%. Earning this discount can benefit you well after school through age 25.

But all discounts will bring down your premiums.

Cheap Auto Insurance Comparisons

The are a couple different ways of comparing rates from local auto insurance companies. The easiest way by far to find the cheapest 1991 Hyundai Sonata insurance rates is to get quotes online. This can be accomplished in several different ways.

  1. The first (and easiest) way to get quotes would be an industry-wide quote request form like this one (opens in new window). This easy form prevents you from having to do separate quote forms for every auto insurance company. Completing one form gets you coverage quotes from multiple low-cost companies. Recommended for those who want to invest the least amount of time.
  2. A more time consuming way to find lower rates consists of going to the website for every company you want to comare to request a price quote. For sake of this example, we’ll assume you want rates from USAA, Allstate and GEICO. To get each rate you have to go to every website and enter your information, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but double check that you are using exactly the same deductibles and coverage limits with every price quote. If you enter different deductibles it’s impossible to determine the lowest rate for your Hyundai Sonata. Quoting even small variations in coverages could mean much higher rates. And when price shopping your coverage, quoting more will improve the odds of getting a better price.

Tailor your coverage to you

When it comes to buying the best insurance coverage for your vehicles, there is no perfect coverage plan. Every situation is different.

These are some specific questions can help discover whether your personal situation might need professional guidance.

  • Why am I be forced to buy a membership to get insurance from some companies?
  • Should I buy only the required minimum liability coverage?
  • Are my tools covered if they get stolen from my vehicle?
  • Does my insurance cover damage caused when ticketed for reckless driving?
  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?
  • Are rock chip repairs covered?
  • When should I drop full coverage on my 1991 Hyundai Sonata?
  • Do I need higher collision deductibles?
  • Does coverage extend to my business vehicle?
  • Where can I get insurance after a DUI in my state?

If you’re not sure about those questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to an insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, fill out this quick form.

Coverages available on your policy

Having a good grasp of your policy aids in choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Collision – Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Sonata caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision can pay for claims such as damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a ditch and sustaining damage from a pot hole. 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 choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Medical costs insurance – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for bills like chiropractic care, prosthetic devices and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims like hitting a bird, fire damage and vandalism. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Liability – This coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 bodily injury coverage, $300,000 for the entire accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability can pay for things like medical expenses, loss of income, funeral expenses, emergency aid and attorney fees. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.

UM/UIM Coverage – This gives you protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Frequently these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Final considerations

As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, it’s very important that you do not reduce needed coverages to save money. There have been many cases where drivers have reduced uninsured motorist or liability limits and learned later that they should have had better coverage. Your goal should be to buy a smart amount of coverage for the lowest price while still protecting your assets.

Cheap 1991 Hyundai Sonata insurance is possible from both online companies and with local insurance agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best chance of lowering rates. Some insurance coverage companies do not offer online quoting and most of the time these small, regional companies sell through independent agents.

Insureds leave their current company for a variety of reasons including high prices, not issuing a premium refund, delays in responding to claim requests and an unsatisfactory settlement offer. No matter why you want to switch, finding a new company is pretty easy and you might even save some money in the process.
