Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but there are discounts available to help offset the cost. Certain discounts will be applied when you quote, but a few need to be asked about prior to receiving the credit. If you’re not getting every credit you qualify for, you’re paying more than you need to.
Consumers should know that many deductions do not apply to your bottom line cost. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like liability and collision coverage. Even though it may seem like all those discounts means the company will pay you, insurance coverage companies aren’t that generous. But all discounts will help reduce the amount you have to pay.

Learning about specific coverages of auto insurance can be of help when determining which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
Insurance for medical payments
Med pay and PIP coverage pay for expenses for rehabilitation expenses, funeral costs, chiropractic care and pain medications. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to you and your occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Usually these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from getting keyed, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a deer and hitting a bird. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision coverage protection
This coverage pays for damage to your LS resulting from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for things like sideswiping another vehicle, scraping a guard rail, rolling your car and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
This coverage can cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover 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 values of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined limit which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability can pay for things like attorney fees, court costs and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
The cheapest 2003 Lincoln LS insurance is possible on the web and with local insurance agents, so compare prices from both so you have a total pricing picture. Some insurance companies do not offer the ability to get a quote online and usually these regional insurance providers provide coverage only through local independent agents.
Drivers change insurance companies for a variety of reasons including questionable increases in premium, lack of trust in their agent, denial of a claim or extreme rates for teen drivers. Regardless of your reason for switching companies, choosing a new insurance company is easier than you think.
You just read many ideas to save on insurance. The key concept to understand is the more rate quotes you have, the higher the chance of saving money. Consumers may even find the lowest priced auto insurance comes from a small mutual company.
