Insurance companies such as GEICO, Farmers Insurance and State Farm promote their brand names with fancy advertisements and consumers find it hard to ignore the flashy ads and find the best price available.
Auto insurance companies don’t always advertise all their discounts in an easy-to-find place, so we break down both the well known and the more hidden savings tricks you should be using.
Drivers should understand that some credits don’t apply to the entire cost. Most only apply to specific coverage prices like comprehensive or collision. So despite the fact that it appears you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies wouldn’t make money that way.
A partial list of companies that may have some of the above discounts may include but are not limited to:
Before buying, ask all companies you are considering which discounts they offer. Some discounts may not apply in your area.
Performing a rate comparison is a ton of work if you don’t utilize the most efficient way to do it. You could waste a few hours discussing policy coverages with insurance companies in your area, or you can stay home and use online quoting to achieve your goal.
Most major companies belong to a marketplace that enables customers to submit their information once, and each participating company then gives them pricing based on the submitted data. This system prevents you from having to do quotation requests for every insurance company.

It’s up to you which method you use, but make sure you use the exact same deductibles and coverage limits for each comparison quote.

And when comparing insurance rates, know that more quotes gives you a better chance of getting the best offered rates.

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are the usual coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Coverage for medical payments
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for bills like rehabilitation expenses, surgery, chiropractic care and doctor visits. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Uninsured and underinsured coverage
This gives you protection when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Mitsubishi Eclipse.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
This coverage will pay to fix 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 can pay for claims like a broken windshield, rock chips in glass, damage from flooding, vandalism and hail damage. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Collision coverage protection
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers claims like colliding with another moving vehicle, rolling your car and driving through your garage door. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Coverage for liability
Liability coverage will cover damage that occurs to other people or property that is your fault. It protects you from claims by other people. 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. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability can pay for things like bail bonds, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, legal defense fees and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
We just presented many tips how you can save on 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse insurance. The key thing to remember is the more rate comparisons you have, the higher the chance of saving money. Consumers could even find that the biggest savings come from an unexpected company. Smaller companies may only write in your state and offer lower rates than their larger competitors like Progressive or GEICO.
