Cheaper 2005 Cadillac CTS-V Insurance Quotes

Looking for better car insurance rates for your Cadillac CTS-V? Having to pay for overpriced car insurance can take a big chunk out of your bank account and force you to prioritize other expenses. Comparing price quotes is a great way to cut your insurance bill.

With consumers having so many car insurance companies to choose from, it can be diffult for consumers to find the best company.

Compare Car Insurance Costs

The are a couple different ways of comparing rates and find the best price. The quickest method to compare 2005 Cadillac CTS-V insurance prices involves getting comparison quotes online. It is quite easy and can be accomplished in a couple of different ways.

  1. The first (and easiest) way consumers can make multiple comparisons is to use a rate comparison form (click to open form in new window). This form keeps you from doing multiple quote forms to each individual car insurance company. Just one form gets you price quotes from multiple companies.
  2. A slightly less efficient method to compare prices is spending the time to visit the website of each company and request a quote. For examples sake, let’s say you want to compare State Farm, GEICO and American Family. To find out each rate you need to take the time to go to each site to enter your coverage information, which is why most consumers use the first method.

It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but compare exactly the same coverage limits for every company. If you compare different values for each quote it will be impossible to determine the lowest rate for your Cadillac CTS-V. Just a small difference in insurance coverages may result in large price differences. Just keep in mind that more quotes helps you find a better price.

Pay less by taking advantage of discounts

Companies offering auto insurance do not list all available discounts very clearly, so we took the time to find some of the more common and the more hidden car insurance savings.

  • Student Driver Training – Make teen driver coverage more affordable by requiring them to complete a driver education course in high school.
  • Seat Belts Save – Buckling up and requiring all passengers to use their safety belts could save 15% on the medical payments or PIP coverage costs.
  • Paperless Signup – Some insurance companies may give you up to $50 for buying a policy and signing up online.
  • Multi-policy Discount – If you insure your home and vehicles with the same insurance company you may save approximately 10% to 15%.
  • No Claims – Claim-free drivers pay much less when compared to drivers who are more careless.
  • Passive Restraint Discount – Vehicles equipped with air bags can get savings of up to 25% or more.
  • Government Employees – Active or retired federal employment can save as much as 8% on CTS-V coverage with a few car insurance companies.
  • Life Insurance Discount – Companies who offer life insurance give better rates if you take out a life insurance policy as well.

A little note about advertised discounts, some credits don’t apply the the whole policy. Some only apply to specific coverage prices like liability and collision coverage. So even though they make it sound like it’s possible to get free car insurance, you’re out of luck.

Your coverage should be tailored to you

When choosing the right insurance coverage for your vehicles, there really is not a “best” method to buy coverage. Each situation is unique so this has to be addressed. These are some specific questions might help in determining whether or not you may require specific advice.

  • Do I need rental car coverage?
  • Can I drive in Mexico and have coverage?
  • Where can I get insurance after a DUI in my state?
  • How many claims can I have before being cancelled?
  • Am I covered if I drive in a foreign country?
  • Why am I be forced to buy a membership to get insurance from some companies?
  • Am I covered when pulling a rental trailer?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, you may need to chat with an agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out this quick form or click here for a list of auto insurance companies in your area.

The coverage is in the details

Understanding the coverages of your auto insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are the normal coverages found on the average auto insurance policy.

Collision coverage protection

This coverage will pay to fix damage to your CTS-V resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage protects against things like hitting a mailbox, colliding with another moving vehicle and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and damage to your Cadillac CTS-V.

Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as falling objects, hail damage, theft, hitting a deer and hitting a bird. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Insurance for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for immediate expenses for dental work, ambulance fees and chiropractic care. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Coverage for liability

Liability coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people. It protects you from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Liability coverage has three 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 stand for a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage pays for things such as repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

At the end of the day…

Cost effective 2005 Cadillac CTS-V insurance is definitely available online in addition to many insurance agents, so you should compare both in order to have the best chance of saving money. Some insurance providers do not provide online quoting and many times these small, regional companies only sell through independent insurance agents.

While you’re price shopping online, never sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. Too many times, consumers will sacrifice liability limits or collision coverage and found out when filing a claim that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. The ultimate goal is to purchase plenty of coverage at an affordable rate while still protecting your assets.
