Want better car insurance rates for your Ford Excursion? Overpriced Ford Excursion insurance can empty your personal savings and make it impossible to make ends meet. Comparing price quotes is a great way to slash your bill and have more diposable income.
Big companies like Allstate, Progressive and GEICO promote their brand names with catchy ads and it is challenging if not impossible to ignore the propoganda and effectively compare rates to find the best deal.
Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but you can get discounts to reduce the price significantly. A few discounts will automatically apply at quote time, but some may not be applied and must be manually applied in order for you to get them.
It’s important to understand that some of the credits will not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Some only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. So when the math indicates all the discounts add up to a free policy, it doesn’t quite work that way. Any qualifying discounts will bring down the amount you have to pay.

Learning about specific coverages of your auto insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are the usual coverages found on most auto insurance policies.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for expenses like rehabilitation expenses, chiropractic care and prosthetic devices. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for things such as colliding with a tree, sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a ditch and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
This coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other people or property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values 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 $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability insurance covers claims like bail bonds, structural damage and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as vandalism, hitting a deer, theft, hitting a bird and hail damage. The maximum amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
This provides protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Ford Excursion.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
As you shop your coverage around, it’s not a good idea to skimp on coverage in order to save money. There are a lot of situations where someone sacrificed liability coverage limits only to discover later that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. Your strategy should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at the best price, not the least amount of coverage.
