Finding the best rates is not that difficult. If you are paying for car insurance now, you should be able to save some money using this strategy. Although drivers can benefit by having an understanding of the way insurance companies compete online and take advantage of how the system works.
Companies offering auto insurance don’t list every available discount very well, so we took the time to find both well-publicized and the harder-to-find discounts you could be receiving.
A little note about advertised discounts, some credits don’t apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only cut individual premiums such as medical payments or collision. So when the math indicates you would end up receiving a 100% discount, you won’t be that lucky.

Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are typical coverage types found on the average car insurance policy.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as vandalism, damage from flooding, theft and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for expenses like ambulance fees, nursing services, doctor visits and rehabilitation expenses. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Windstar Cargo from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as driving through your garage door, hitting a parking meter, backing into a parked car and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
Liability coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 50/100/50 that translate to $50,000 bodily injury coverage, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability can pay for claims like funeral expenses, pain and suffering, emergency aid, legal defense fees and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Ford Windstar Cargo.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Drivers may discover the best prices are with some of the smallest insurance companies. These companies may only write in your state and offer lower rates as compared to the big name companies such as State Farm, GEICO and Nationwide.
