Car insurance companies don’t always advertise every discount very well, so we took the time to find some of the more common and the more hidden ways to save on auto insurance. If you don’t get every credit you deserve, you are throwing money away.
Consumers should know that some credits don’t apply to your bottom line cost. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as comp or med pay. Just because you may think adding up those discounts means a free policy, you won’t be that lucky.

Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the usual coverages offered by insurance companies.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage
This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
Collision coverage protection
This pays for damage to your Escalade ESV resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers things like backing into a parked car, rolling your car, sustaining damage from a pot hole and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
This coverage pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like damage from a tornado or hurricane, a broken windshield and vandalism. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Liability auto insurance
Liability insurance will cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property that is your fault. It protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for 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 limits of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as funeral expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, medical expenses and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
Medical expense coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses like dental work, hospital visits and EMT expenses. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover you and your occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
