Searching for the cheapest insurance for a new or used Honda Prelude can be an all-consuming task, but you can learn our insurance buying tips and make it easy.
There are more efficient ways to shop for insurance so we’re going to tell you the quickest way to price shop coverage for your Honda and locate the best price possible from both online companies and local agents.
It’s smart to do rate comparisons periodically because insurance rates fluctuate regularly. If you had the best deal on Prelude coverage a couple years back you can probably find a lower rate today. So ignore everything you know about insurance because you’re going to get a crash course in the only way to save money, get proper coverage and the best rates.
Pricing affordable coverage is quite easy. If you have a policy now or are looking for a new policy, you can use this information to find better prices and possibly find even better coverage. Drivers just need to know the most efficient way to compare price quotes online.
Car insurance is not cheap, but you can get discounts to cut the cost considerably. Certain discounts will be applied when you complete an application, but lesser-known reductions have to be specially asked for prior to getting the savings. If you aren’t receiving every discount possible, you are paying more than you should be.
It’s important to note that most discounts do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only cut specific coverage prices like medical payments or collision. Even though it may seem like all those discounts means the company will pay you, companies don’t profit that way. Any amount of discount will help reduce the amount you have to pay.

Consumers constantly see and hear ads for the lowest price auto insurance by companies like Progressive, GEICO, Allstate and State Farm. All the companies make an identical promise that you can save if you switch to them.
But how can every company make almost identical claims?
Different companies can use profiling for the type of driver they prefer to insure. For example, a driver they prefer might be between 25 and 40, has no driving citations, and drives less than 10,000 miles a year. A customer getting a price quote that hits that “sweet spot” receives the best rates and as a result will probably pay quite a bit less when switching companies.
Potential customers who don’t measure up to the “perfect” profile will be charged higher rates and ends up with business going elsewhere. The ads state “customers who switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save money. This is how companies can make the claims of big savings.
That is why it’s extremely important to get a wide range of price quotes. It is impossible to predict which company will have the lowest Honda Prelude insurance rates.
Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things like rock chips in glass, theft, falling objects, damage from a tornado or hurricane and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision – This pays for damage to your Prelude resulting from a collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, damaging your car on a curb and rolling your car. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Insurance for medical payments – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses for funeral costs, nursing services, X-ray expenses, EMT expenses and prosthetic devices. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and may carry a deductible
Auto liability insurance – Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other people or property. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 which means a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability can pay for claims like bail bonds, loss of income, repair costs for stationary objects and attorney fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Honda Prelude.
Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Low-cost 1995 Honda Prelude insurance is definitely available online as well as from independent agents, so compare prices from both to get a complete price analysis. Some insurance providers don’t offer you the ability to get quotes online and usually these small, regional companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
We just covered a lot of techniques to lower your insurance rates. The most important thing to understand is the more providers you compare, the better your chances of lowering your rates. Consumers may even find the lowest priced car insurance comes from a small local company.
Consumers change insurance companies for any number of reasons including an unsatisfactory settlement offer, high prices, denial of a claim and even delays in responding to claim requests. Regardless of your reason for switching companies, choosing a new company is less work than it seems.
