It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but ensure you are comparing exactly the same information on every quote. If the quotes have unequal deductibles or liability limits it will be impossible to determine which rate is truly the best.
Consumers can’t get away from ads for car insurance savings by State Farm and Allstate. They all have a common claim about savings after switching to their company.
How do they all claim to save you money? This is how they do it.
Insurance companies are able to cherry pick for the driver that is profitable for them. A good example of a desirable insured might be profiled as between the ages of 40 and 55, owns a home, and drives less than 10,000 miles a year. Any driver who fits that profile will qualify for the lowest rates and as a result will probably save when switching.
Consumers who don’t qualify for these standards will be charged higher prices which leads to the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ad wording is “people who switch” not “people who quote” save money. That is how companies can truthfully state the savings. That is why it is so important to quote coverage with many companies. Because you never know which company will fit your personal profile best.
Smart consumers have a good feel for the rating factors that come into play when calculating the price you pay for insurance. Knowing what impacts premium levels allows you to make educated decisions that can help you get lower insurance prices.

Understanding the coverages of your policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find the normal coverages offered by car insurance companies.
Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, rock chips in glass, vandalism, hail damage and damage from getting keyed. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
This covers damage to your Cayman caused by collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers things such as sideswiping another vehicle, rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb, colliding with a tree and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills for X-ray expenses, pain medications, nursing services and rehabilitation expenses. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
This protects you from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property in an accident. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see liability limits of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability insurance covers claims such as structural damage, funeral expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
We covered some good ideas how to compare 2011 Porsche Cayman insurance prices online. The key thing to remember is the more price quotes you have, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. You may even discover the most savings is with the smaller companies. These companies may have significantly lower rates on certain market segments than their larger competitors like State Farm or Progressive.
Affordable insurance is available online as well as from independent agents, so you should compare both to get a complete price analysis. A few companies don’t offer the ability to get a quote online and many times these smaller companies only sell through independent insurance agents.
