Lots of discounts mean lots of savings

Companies offering auto insurance don’t always publicize every available discount very well, so we took the time to find both the well known as well as the least known discounts you could be receiving. If you don’t get every credit you deserve, you are paying more than you should be.

  • Multiple Cars – Buying coverage for all your vehicles on one policy may reduce the rate for each vehicle.
  • Paperwork-free – Certain companies may give you up to $50 simply for signing digitally online.
  • Safe Drivers – Safe drivers may receive a discount up to 45% less on xB coverage than less cautious drivers.
  • Drivers Education – Have your child take driver’s ed class if offered at their school.
  • 55 and Retired – Older drivers may be able to get a discount up to 10% on xB coverage.
  • Distant Student – Any of your kids living away from home attending college and don’t have a car may be able to be covered for less.
  • Seat Belt Usage – Drivers who require all occupants to use their safety belts could cut 10% or more off the personal injury premium cost.
  • Pay Now and Pay Less – If you pay your bill all at once instead of monthly or quarterly installments you could save 5% or more.
  • Fewer Miles Equal More Savings – Low mileage vehicles can earn better rates on cars that stay parked.

It’s important to understand that many deductions do not apply to the entire policy premium. Most only apply to individual premiums such as collision or personal injury protection. Just because you may think it’s possible to get free car insurance, companies don’t profit that way.

How to Compare Car Insurance Costs

Finding a lower price on 2012 Scion xB insurance is actually quite simple. You just have to invest a little time to compare rate quotes online from several insurance companies. This is very easy and can be done in several different ways.

  • The recommended way to find the lowest comparison rates is a comparison rater form like this one (opens in new window). This method prevents you from having to do separate quotes for each company. One form submission will get you rate comparisons from multiple companies. Recommended for those who want to invest the least amount of time.
  • A less efficient way to find lower rates requires a visit to each company’s website to request a price quote. For sake of this example, let’s assume you want to compare rates from Farmers, Safeco and State Farm. To find out each rate you need to visit each site to input your insurance information, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

Situations that might require an agent

When choosing proper insurance coverage, there really is not a “perfect” insurance plan. Everyone’s needs are different.

Here are some questions about coverages that might help in determining whether or not you would benefit from professional advice.

  • Is my babysitter covered when using my vehicle?
  • Can my teen driver be rated on a liability-only vehicle?
  • Do I really need UM/UIM coverage?
  • Should I buy full coverage?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my 2012 Scion xB?
  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?
  • Am I covered when driving on a suspended license?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you know they apply to you, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, simply complete this short form. It only takes a few minutes and may give you better protection.

Insurance coverages explained

Knowing the specifics of insurance aids in choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for immediate expenses for prosthetic devices, pain medications, doctor visits and X-ray expenses. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when other motorists 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.

Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Comprehensive auto coverage

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from getting keyed, fire damage, damage from flooding and theft. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Auto liability

Liability insurance protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property in an accident. It protects you from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a limit of $50,000 per injured person, $100,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as emergency aid, loss of income, structural damage and medical expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Coverage for collisions

Collision insurance pays for damage to your xB from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for things such as crashing into a ditch, driving through your garage door, scraping a guard rail, damaging your car on a curb and colliding with another moving vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.

In conclusion

Budget-conscious 2012 Scion xB insurance can be bought on the web and with local insurance agents, so compare prices from both to have the best rate selection. Some insurance companies do not offer online price quotes and most of the time these regional insurance providers sell through independent agents.

People leave their current company for any number of reasons including not issuing a premium refund, poor customer service, policy non-renewal or even extreme rates for teen drivers. It doesn’t matter why you want to switch switching insurance companies can be pretty painless.

We just presented quite a bit of information on how to save on insurance. The key thing to remember is the more price quotes you have, the higher your chance of finding lower rates. You may be surprised to find that the lowest priced insurance comes from some of the smallest insurance companies.
