No one in their right mind likes having to buy insurance coverage, especially when they are paying too much. Many insurance companies compete to insure your vehicles, and it can be difficult to compare rates and get the definite lowest cost out there.
Shopping for lower insurance coverage rates can be challenging if you aren’t aware of the most efficient way. You can waste a few hours (or days) driving to agents in your area, or you can stay home and use the internet to maximize your effort.
Many popular insurance companies enroll in a system where prospective buyers enter their policy data once, and every company then returns a price quote based on that data. This prevents consumers from doing form submissions for every insurance coverage company.

Car insurance companies don’t list every discount in a way that’s easy to find, so we took the time to find some of the more common as well as the least known ways to save on insurance. If you aren’t receiving every discount you qualify for, you are paying more than you should be.
A little note about advertised discounts, many deductions do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only cut the price of certain insurance coverages like collision or personal injury protection. So even though they make it sound like adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way.
A partial list of companies who might offer some of the above discounts include:

This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Chevy Astro Cargo.
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. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.
Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision can pay for claims like sideswiping another vehicle, driving through your garage door, crashing into a building and crashing into a ditch. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills such as funeral costs, EMT expenses, dental work, nursing services and surgery. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers you and your occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
This protects you from damage or injury you incur to people or other property. It protects you against claims from 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. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that means you have a limit of $100,000 per injured person, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability can pay for claims like medical services, loss of income, legal defense fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and funeral expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
This covers 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 things like theft, falling objects and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
