Searching for better auto insurance rates for your Jaguar XJ-Series? Paying for high-priced Jaguar XJ-Series insurance can drain your savings account and put the squeeze on your family’s finances. Doing a price comparison is free and is an excellent way to make sure you’re not throwing money away.
There are many car insurance companies to purchase coverage from, and though it is a good thing to be able to choose, having more auto insurance companies makes it harder to find the best rates for your vehicles.
The purpose of this article is to familiarize you with how car insurance quotes work and some tips to save money. If you currently have a car insurance policy, you should be able to cut costs considerably using these techniques. But car owners need to learn the methods companies use to sell online and use this information to your advantage.
There are a variety of methods to compare 2007 Jaguar XJ-Series auto insurance prices but there is one way that is easier and takes less work. You could spend the better part of a day talking about coverages with agents in your area, or you could use online quotes for quick rates.
Many insurance companies participate in an industry program that enables customers to enter their policy data once, and at least one company returns a rated price determined by their information. This eliminates the need for quotation requests for each company you want a rate for.

The one downside to pricing coverage this way is you are unable to specify the providers you want pricing from. So if you want to choose individual companies to compare, we have assembled a list of companies who write auto insurance in your area. View list of insurance companies.
Whichever method you choose, make absolute certain that you use the exact same coverages and limits on every quote you get. If you use different limits and deductibles on each one it will be very difficult to make a fair comparison for your Jaguar XJ-Series. Just a small difference in insurance coverages could mean much higher rates. And when comparing auto insurance rates, know that getting more free quotes helps you find better pricing.
Insuring your vehicles can cost a lot, but there could be available discounts that you may not know about. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied when you purchase, but a few must be manually applied prior to getting the savings.
A little note about advertised discounts, most discounts do not apply to the entire policy premium. Some only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as medical payments or collision. So even though it sounds like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies wouldn’t make money that way. Any amount of discount will cut the amount you have to pay.
A partial list of companies that may have these discounts include:
Before buying, ask each insurance company what discounts are available to you. Some discounts might not apply everywhere.
When buying proper insurance coverage, there really is no single plan that fits everyone. Everyone’s situation is unique so your insurance needs to address that. For instance, these questions may help you determine whether or not you will benefit from professional help.
If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you know they apply to you then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form or go to this page to view a list of companies.
Auto insurance providers like Allstate and Progressive 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 are able to cherry pick for the type of customer they prefer to insure. A good example of a desirable insured could possibly be over the age of 50, insures multiple vehicles, and chooses high deductibles. A customer that hits that “sweet spot” will qualify for the lowest rates and most likely will cut their rates substantially.
Potential customers who do not match these standards must pay a more expensive rate which leads to the customer not buying. The ads state “people who switch” not “people who quote” save money. This is how insurance companies can confidently make those claims.
This illustrates why it’s extremely important to get as many quotes as possible. It’s impossible to know which company will fit your personal profile best.
Learning about specific coverages of car insurance aids in choosing which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Car insurance terms can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are the usual coverages offered by car insurance companies.
Coverage for medical expenses
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for bills such as hospital visits, pain medications, doctor visits and ambulance fees. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers both the driver and occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
This provides protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Jaguar XJ-Series.
Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Frequently these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Collision coverage protection
This coverage will pay to fix damage to your XJ-Series caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers claims like scraping a guard rail, hitting a mailbox, sideswiping another vehicle, sustaining damage from a pot hole and rolling your car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive car insurance
This covers 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 can pay for claims such as theft, fire damage and hitting a bird. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
This provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. This insurance 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. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 that translate to a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as pain and suffering, emergency aid and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
As you shop your coverage around, you should never skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. Too many times, an accident victim reduced physical damage coverage only to regret at claim time that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. The aim is to get the best coverage possible at a price you can afford while still protecting your assets.
We covered quite a bit of information on how to save on 2007 Jaguar XJ-Series insurance. It’s most important to understand that the more rate comparisons you have, the higher the chance of saving money. Consumers could even find that the lowest premiums are with a company that doesn’t do a lot of advertising. Some small companies can often provide lower rates in certain areas as compared to the big name companies such as Allstate or State Farm.
Affordable insurance can be bought both online and also from your neighborhood agents, so you should compare both to get a complete price analysis. Some insurance companies may not provide you the ability to get quotes online and most of the time these smaller companies sell through independent agents.
