Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, but you can get discounts to cut the cost considerably.

If they aren’t giving you every credit you deserve, you are paying more than you should be.
As a disclaimer on discounts, most of the big mark downs will not be given to the overall cost of the policy. The majority will only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. Just because it seems like it’s possible to get free car insurance, auto insurance companies aren’t that generous. But all discounts will help reduce the amount you have to pay.

Learning about specific coverages of insurance can be of help when determining the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
This coverage will cover damage that occurs to people or other property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability can pay for things like repair costs for stationary objects, loss of income and medical services. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Dodge Stratus.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Most of the time these coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses like doctor visits, X-ray expenses and prosthetic devices. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Collision coverage protection
This pays for damage to your Stratus from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for things such as hitting a parking meter, rolling your car and crashing into a building. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive insurance pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird, theft and vandalism. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
