Searching for better insurance prices for your Subaru Impreza can be a lot of work, but you can learn these tips to make it easier.
There are more efficient ways to compare insurance rates so we’re going to tell you the absolute fastest way to get price quotes for a Subaru and find the best price possible from both online companies and local agents.
It’s important that you understand some of the elements that help determine the rates you pay for car insurance. Understanding what influences your rates allows you to make educated decisions that can help you get much lower annual insurance costs.
The quickest method we recommend to get rate comparisons is to know the fact all the major auto insurance companies participate in a system to give rate comparisons. All consumers are required to do is spend a couple of minutes providing details such as how much education you have, how much you drive, what you do for a living, and if a SR-22 is required. Those rating factors is sent automatically to many highly-rated insurers and they respond with quotes with very little delay.

Consumers constantly see and hear ads that promise big savings by companies like State Farm, GEICO and Progressive. They all say the same thing of big savings if you move to them.
How can each company claim to save you money?
All the different companies have a preferred profile for the right customer they prefer to insure. For example, a driver they prefer could be between the ages of 30 and 50, a clean driving record, and chooses high deductibles. Any new insured who matches those parameters is entitled to the best price and most likely will save when they switch companies.
Drivers who fall outside the “perfect” profile will be charged a more expensive rate which usually ends up with the customer not buying. Company advertisements say “customers who switch” not “everyone that quotes” save money. That’s the way insurance companies can state the savings.
That is why it is so important to get as many comparisons as possible. You cannot predict which company will have the lowest Subaru Impreza insurance rates.
Properly insuring your vehicles can get expensive, buy you may qualify for discounts to help bring down the price. Some trigger automatically when you purchase, but less common discounts must be asked for before being credited. If you don’t get every credit you qualify for, you are paying more than you should be.
Drivers should understand that most discount credits are not given to the entire cost. A few only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like liability and collision coverage. So when it seems like all those discounts means the company will pay you, companies wouldn’t make money that way. But all discounts will reduce the amount you have to pay.

When it comes to choosing adequate coverage, there is no “perfect” insurance plan. Every insured’s situation is different.

Knowing the specifics of your policy can be of help when determining the right coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.
This coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
It consists of three 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 a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Occasionally you may see a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, pain and suffering and attorney fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for bills such as dental work, rehabilitation expenses and ambulance fees. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
This pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things like rock chips in glass, hitting a bird, damage from getting keyed and a broken windshield. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision insurance pays for damage to your Impreza caused by collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as hitting a mailbox, scraping a guard rail, colliding with another moving vehicle and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
This coverage provides protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Subaru Impreza.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Normally these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
We just covered a lot of techniques to lower your 2003 Subaru Impreza insurance rates. The most important thing to understand is the more times you quote, the higher the chance of saving money. You may be surprised to find that the most savings is with a smaller regional carrier.
Cheap insurance can be bought online and also from your neighborhood agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both to get a complete price analysis. Some insurance providers may not provide the ability to get a quote online and these small, regional companies work with independent agents.
As you restructure your insurance plan, don’t be tempted to reduce needed coverages to save money. In many instances, someone dropped liability coverage limits only to regret they didn’t purchase enough coverage. The ultimate goal is to get the best coverage possible for the lowest price while not skimping on critical coverages.
