Cut your car insurance rates with discounts

Auto insurance companies don’t necessarily list all available discounts very well, so the following is a list of both the well known and also the lesser-known ways to save on car insurance. If you don’t get every credit you qualify for, you’re just leaving money on the table.

  • Multiple Cars – Having all your vehicles on one policy could earn a price break for each car.
  • Driver’s Ed – Require your teen driver to enroll in driver’s education in school.
  • Passive Restraints and Air Bags – Cars that have air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems can qualify for discounts up to 30%.
  • No Accidents – Drivers with accident-free driving histories pay much less compared to drivers who are more careless.
  • Seat Belts Save – Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to use their safety belts could save 15% off your PIP or medical payments premium.
  • E-sign – Certain companies will discount your bill up to fifty bucks for buying a policy and signing up over the internet.
  • Driver Safety – Successfully completing a course in driver safety could cut 5% off your bill and easily recoup the cost of the course.
  • Good Student Discount – Getting good grades can earn a discount of 20% or more. The discount lasts up to age 25.
  • Discount for New Cars – Insuring a new car can be considerably cheaper because new vehicles have to meet stringent safety requirements.
  • No Charge for an Accident – Some insurance companies permit an accident before hitting you with a surcharge if you are claim-free for a particular time prior to the accident.

As a disclaimer on discounts, most of the big mark downs will not be given the the whole policy. The majority will only reduce individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. Just because it seems like you could get a free car insurance policy, it doesn’t quite work that way.

Insurance companies who might offer these money-saving discounts are:

It’s a good idea to ask each insurance company what discounts are available to you. All car insurance discounts might not apply in your state.

Elements that influence Acura Vigor insurance rates

Consumers need to have an understanding of the factors that help determine your insurance rates. Having a good understanding of what impacts premium levels enables informed choices that will entitle you to big savings.

The following are some of the items insurance companies consider when setting prices.

  • Cautious drivers pay less – Even a single ticket can increase rates by twenty percent. Good drivers get better rates than people who have multiple driving citations. Drivers who get severe violations such as DWI, reckless driving or hit and run convictions may be required to file a SR-22 with their state DMV in order to drive a vehicle legally.
  • More people means more accidents – Choosing to live in less populated areas can be a good thing when it comes to insurance. Drivers in populated areas regularly have much more traffic and longer commute times. Less people living in that area means a lower chance of having an accident and also fewer theft and vandalism claims.
  • Do you have enough liability coverage? – Your policy’s liability coverage is the coverage that protects you if a court rules you are at fault for personal injury or accident damage. It provides legal defense coverage starting from day one. Carrying liability coverage is mandatory and cheap as compared to coverage for physical damage, so do not skimp.
  • Better credit scores mean better rates – Credit history is a huge factor in calculating your insurance rates. Therefore, if your credit score is not that good, you could potentially save money when insuring your 1993 Acura Vigor by repairing your credit. Drivers with high credit ratings tend to file fewer claims and have better driving records than drivers with lower credit scores.
  • More miles equals more premium – The higher the mileage driven every year the higher your rate. Most insurance companies charge to insure your cars determined by how the vehicle is used. Cars and trucks used primarily for pleasure use qualify for better rates compared to those used for work or business. Double check that your insurance declarations sheet shows the correct usage for each vehicle. If your policy improperly rates your Vigor may be costing you.

You are unique and your auto insurance should be too

When it comes to buying adequate coverage, there isn’t really a cookie cutter policy. Everyone’s needs are different.

For instance, these questions may help you determine if your insurance needs will benefit from professional help.

  • What exactly is covered by my policy?
  • What is medical payments coverage?
  • When should I drop full coverage on my 1993 Acura Vigor?
  • Should I bundle my homeowners policy with my auto?
  • Is my vehicle covered by my employer’s policy when using it for work?
  • Am I insured when driving a different vehicle?
  • Do I need higher collision deductibles?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions, then you may want to think about talking to an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form. It is quick, free and may give you better protection.

Buyer beware of insurance coverage advertising tricks

Consumers can’t get away from ads for car insurance savings by companies like Progressive, Allstate and GEICO. They all seem to have a common claim that you’ll save big if you move to them.

How can each company make almost identical claims?

All companies have a certain “appetite” for the right customer that is profitable for them. For example, a preferred risk might be profiled as between 25 and 40, has no prior claims, and has excellent credit. Any driver that hits that “sweet spot” will qualify for the lowest rates and most likely will save a lot of money.

Drivers who don’t meet the requirements will be quoted more money and this can result in business going elsewhere. Company advertisements say “drivers who switch” not “everybody who quotes” save that much. That’s the way companies can truthfully make the claims of big savings. This emphasizes why you should get as many quotes as possible. You cannot predict which insurance companies will provide you with the cheapest Acura Vigor insurance rates.

Coverages available on your policy

Knowing the specifics of your auto insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement.

Coverage for liability

Liability insurance protects you from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show limits of 100/300/100 which means a limit of $100,000 per injured person, $300,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.

Liability can pay for claims such as funeral expenses, pain and suffering and court costs. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision insurance

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Vigor resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as hitting a parking meter, damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a building and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses like dental work, prosthetic devices and chiropractic care. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover both the driver and occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

This provides protection when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your 1993 Acura Vigor.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Comprehensive insurance

This pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, theft, hail damage, damage from flooding and a broken windshield. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Buy online or local, you save

Lower-priced 1993 Acura Vigor insurance is attainable from both online companies as well as from independent agents, so you should compare both in order to have the best chance of saving money. Some insurance providers don’t offer online quoting and these regional insurance providers work with independent agents.

Consumers change insurance companies for any number of reasons including an unsatisfactory settlement offer, high rates after DUI convictions, lack of trust in their agent and delays in paying claims. No matter why you want to switch, finding the right insurance coverage provider is less work than it seems.

As you restructure your insurance plan, you should never reduce needed coverages to save money. There are a lot of situations where an insured cut collision coverage only to regret at claim time that the small savings ended up costing them much more. The aim is to find the BEST coverage at an affordable rate.
