Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but there could be available discounts that you may not even be aware of. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied when you complete an application, but less common discounts must be requested specifically prior to getting the savings.
As a disclaimer on discounts, some of the credits will not apply to all coverage premiums. Some only apply to specific coverage prices like comp or med pay. Even though it may seem like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies don’t profit that way. Any qualifying discounts will bring down your overall premium however.

When choosing the right insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a “perfect” insurance plan. Everyone’s situation is unique and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. For example, these questions may help you determine whether you could use an agent’s help.
If you’re not sure about those questions but you know they apply to you, you might consider talking to an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, take a second and complete this form or click here for a list of auto insurance companies in your area.
Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Below you’ll find the normal coverages offered by car insurance companies.
This coverage provides protection when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Saturn Outlook.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Normally these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Comprehensive insurance pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a deer, hail damage and falling objects. The maximum amount your car insurance company will pay 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.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for bills such as funeral costs, EMT expenses and ambulance fees. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers you and your occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Outlook from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for claims like colliding with another moving vehicle, driving through your garage door, crashing into a building and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
This protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage protects against things such as medical expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, pain and suffering and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
