Nevertheless, vehicle owners must comprehend how big insurance companies market on the web and use this information to your advantage.

Compare Quotes for Insurance

There are several ways to compare rate quotes from different insurance companies. The simplest method to find the cheapest 2004 Porsche Cayenne insurance rates involves getting comparison quotes online. This can be done using a couple different methods.

  1. The most efficient way to get quotes is a comparison rater form click here to open form in new window. This method eliminates the need for separate quotation requests to each individual insurance company. One quote request will get you rate comparisons from several companies.
  2. A more time consuming way to get quotes online requires a trip to each individual company website and fill out their own quote form. For instance, let’s say you want rates from Allstate, Progressive and GMAC. To find out each rate you need to spend time on each company’s site and enter your policy data, which is why the first method is more popular.

  3. The most time-consuming way to get comparison rates is to drive around to and from local insurance agencies. The ability to buy insurance online eliminates the need for an insurance agent unless you want the professional advice of a licensed agent. It is possible to comparison shop online and still use a local agent and we’ll touch on that later.

Which method you use is up to you, but make darn sure you compare apples-to-apples coverages for each comparison quote. If you are comparing different liability limits you will not be able to make a fair comparison for your Porsche Cayenne. Just a small difference in insurance coverages can mean a large discrepancy in price. And when quoting insurance, remember that more quotes provides better odds of finding a better price.

Don’t be fooled by advertising claims

Car insurance providers like State Farm and Allstate continually stream television and radio advertisements. They all make an identical promise that you can save after switching to their company. But how can every company make almost identical claims? It’s all in the numbers.

Insurance companies have a preferred profile for the right customer that makes them money. An example of a preferred risk could be between 30 and 50, a clean driving record, and chooses high deductibles. Any driver who fits that profile will qualify for the lowest rates and as a result will probably cut their rates substantially.

Potential insureds who are not a match for the “perfect” profile will be quoted a more expensive rate which leads to the driver buying from a lower-cost company. Company advertisements say “drivers who switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save that much money. That’s why insurance companies can make the claims of big savings.

This emphasizes why drivers must get as many quotes as possible. It is impossible to predict which car insurance company will provide you with the cheapest Porsche Cayenne insurance rates.

Don’t overlook these six discounts

Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but discounts can save money and there are some available that can drop the cost substantially. Most are applied at quote time, but lesser-known reductions have to be manually applied in order for you to get them.

  • Passive Restraints – Cars that have air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems may earn rate discounts of up to 25% or more.
  • Braking Control Discount – Cars that have steering control and anti-lock brakes can reduce accidents and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
  • Good Student – Performing well in school can save 20 to 25%. This discount can apply up until you turn 25.
  • Theft Prevention Discount – Vehicles with anti-theft systems prevent vehicle theft and will save you 10% or more.
  • Auto/Home Discount – When you have multiple policies with one insurance company you may earn 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Sign Early and Save – Some companies give discounts for signing up prior to your current policy expiration. It can save you around 10%.

A little note about advertised discounts, some credits don’t apply to your bottom line cost. Most only apply to specific coverage prices like physical damage coverage or medical payments. Even though it may seem like adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way. But any discount will reduce the amount you have to pay.

Car insurance companies who might offer these benefits include:

Before buying, ask each company what discounts are available to you. Some discounts might not apply in your state.

Is my situation unique?

When buying the best insurance coverage coverage, there is no best way to insure your cars. Each situation is unique and your policy should reflect that. For instance, these questions may help highlight whether or not you might need an agent’s assistance.

  • What if I owe more than I can insure my car for?
  • What is covered by UM/UIM coverage?
  • What is UM/UIM insurance?
  • Is my Porsche Cayenne covered if I use it for business?
  • Are rental cars covered under my policy?
  • Can I drive in Mexico and have coverage?

If you can’t answer these questions but one or more may apply to you, you might consider talking to an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, take a second and complete this form or click here for a list of insurance coverage companies in your area.

Car insurance coverages and their meanings

Having a good grasp of car insurance aids in choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find typical coverage types offered by car insurance companies.

Medical expense insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for expenses like surgery, hospital visits, EMT expenses and doctor visits. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like hitting a bird, vandalism, damage from flooding, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and a broken windshield. The maximum payout your car insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your 2004 Porsche Cayenne.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Normally the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.

Collision coverage

This will pay to fix damage to your Cayenne resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for things such as hitting a mailbox, crashing into a building and damaging your car on a curb. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Liability insurance

Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people. It protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability insurance covers things like funeral expenses, medical services, emergency aid and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Quote more. Save more.

Discount 2004 Porsche Cayenne insurance can be purchased both online and with local insurance agents, and you should compare price quotes from both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some insurance coverage companies do not offer online price quotes and many times these regional insurance providers only sell through independent insurance agents.

When shopping online for insurance coverage, do not reduce coverage to reduce premium. Too many times, an accident victim reduced physical damage coverage to discover at claim time that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. Your goal should be to purchase plenty of coverage at an affordable rate, not the least amount of coverage.
