Insurance companies are able to cherry pick for the type of customer they prefer to insure. For instance, a preferred risk might be over the age of 50, has no driving citations, and has a high credit rating. A propective insured who meets those qualifications gets the lowest rates and is almost guaranteed to save when they switch companies.

Liability coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to a person or their property in an accident. It protects YOU from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 which means a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage protects against claims like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, repair costs for stationary objects and pain and suffering. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as large an amount as possible.
This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Chrysler Town and Country.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses like prosthetic devices, EMT expenses, nursing services and hospital visits. 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 both the driver and occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like damage from flooding, damage from getting keyed, fire damage, rock chips in glass and falling objects. The most your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
This covers damage to your Town and Country resulting from colliding with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things like scraping a guard rail, crashing into a building, colliding with another moving vehicle and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
When trying to cut insurance costs, it’s not a good idea to sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There are a lot of situations where someone dropped liability limits or collision coverage only to discover later that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. The ultimate goal is to purchase plenty of coverage for the lowest price.
