Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, buy you may qualify for discounts to reduce the price significantly. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied at quote time, but less common discounts must be specially asked for prior to getting the savings.
A little note about advertised discounts, many deductions do not apply to the entire policy premium. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. So when the math indicates you would end up receiving a 100% discount, it doesn’t quite work that way. But any discount will cut your premiums.

Companies like Allstate and Progressive constantly bombard you with ads in print and on television. All the ads make an identical promise that you’ll save big if you switch your coverage to them. But how can every company claim to save you money?
All the different companies are able to cherry pick for the type of customer that is profitable for them. For instance, a driver they prefer could be between 30 and 50, is a homeowner, and drives newer vehicles. A customer who fits that profile gets the lowest rates and most likely will save when they switch companies.
Drivers who fall outside the requirements must pay a more expensive rate and ends up with business going elsewhere. Company advertisements say “people who switch” not “everyone that quotes” save that kind of money. That’s the way insurance companies can confidently advertise the savings.
This illustrates why drivers must get as many quotes as possible. It’s just too difficult to predict the company that will fit your personal profile best.
Learning about specific coverages of your auto insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Medical expense coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses for things like rehabilitation expenses, hospital visits and nursing services. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Uninsured or underinsured coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when other motorists 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, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Usually these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like theft, damage from getting keyed, fire damage and hail damage. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
This coverage will pay to fix damage to your NSX resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers claims such as crashing into a building, hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a ditch and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. You can also raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Liability car insurance
This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects you from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability can pay for things such as attorney fees, legal defense fees and medical services. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
People switch companies for many reasons like questionable increases in premium, denial of a claim, high rates after DUI convictions or even policy cancellation. Regardless of your reason, finding a new company is less work than it seems.
