Companies don’t always list all their discounts in a way that’s easy to find, so we took the time to find some of the best known as well as the least known savings tricks you should be using.
A little note about advertised discounts, most credits do not apply to the entire cost. Some only reduce specific coverage prices like comp or med pay. Even though it may seem like all those discounts means the company will pay you, it just doesn’t work that way.

Insurance companies such as State Farm and Allstate constantly bombard you with ads in print and on television. They all seem to say the same thing of big savings if you switch to them. How does each company claim to save you money?
All companies are able to cherry pick for the type of customer that earns them a profit. For example, a driver they prefer might be profiled as a mature driver, has no prior claims, and has a short commute. A propective insured who fits that profile receives the best rates and as a result will probably save when they switch companies.
Potential insureds who don’t qualify for the requirements will be quoted a higher premium which usually ends up with business not being written. The ads state “customers that switch” not “everyone that quotes” save that much money. That’s why companies can make the claims of big savings. This emphasizes why it’s extremely important to get a wide range of price quotes. You cannot predict which insurance company will give you the biggest savings on BMW M5 insurance.
Knowing the specifics of your insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find typical coverages available from insurance companies.
Liability auto insurance
This provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as pain and suffering, attorney fees, bail bonds, structural damage and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but buy higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, rock chips in glass and theft. 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.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses like prosthetic devices, pain medications, X-ray expenses and chiropractic care. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
This gives you protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your 1993 BMW M5.
Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important.
Collision coverage protection
Collision insurance covers damage to your M5 resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers things like crashing into a ditch, sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a mailbox and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. You can also choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, it’s very important that you do not skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. There are a lot of situations where someone sacrificed collision coverage and found out when filing a claim that they should have had better coverage. Your aim should be to purchase plenty of coverage at an affordable rate while still protecting your assets.
