Car insurance can cost a lot, but you can get discounts that you may not know about. Most are applied at the time you complete a quote, but some may not be applied and must be asked for prior to receiving the credit. If you don’t get every credit possible, you are paying more than you should be.
It’s important to understand that most discount credits are not given the the whole policy. Most only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as comprehensive or collision. So when the math indicates adding up those discounts means a free policy, you won’t be that lucky. Any qualifying discounts will bring down the cost of coverage.

Having a good grasp of a insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Normally your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t 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 might see policy limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability can pay for things like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, medical expenses and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision coverage protection
This pays for damage to your 9-5 from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with another moving vehicle and crashing into a ditch. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like rock chips in glass, damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a deer, damage from getting keyed and hitting a bird. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Medical expense insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for bills like EMT expenses, doctor visits, X-ray expenses and ambulance fees. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your 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 getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

The aim is to purchase plenty of coverage at an affordable rate while still protecting your assets.
Consumers change insurance companies for many reasons like extreme rates for teen drivers, an unsatisfactory settlement offer, policy cancellation and denial of a claim. It doesn’t matter what your reason, finding a new company is actually quite simple.
