View 2014 Nissan GT-R Car Insurance Quotes

Shoppers have options when shopping for affordable Nissan GT-R insurance. You can either spend your time contacting agents getting price quotes or leverage the internet to compare rates. There is a better way to find insurance coverage online and we’ll show you the quickest way to compare rates on a Nissan and get the lowest possible price from local insurance agents and online providers.

Buying car insurance is not rocket science. If you are paying for car insurance now, you should be able to cut costs considerably using this strategy. Consumers just need to understand the proper methods to find the lowest price on the web.

How to Get Car Insurance

Lowering your 2014 Nissan GT-R car insurance rates can be surprisingly simple. All that’s required is to take a couple of minutes comparing rate quotes from different insurance companies. This can be done using a couple different methods.

The best way to get quotes is to use a rate comparison form (click to open form in new window). This method saves time by eliminating separate quotes for each company. One form gets rate comparisons instantly. This is by far the quickest method.

A different way to find lower rates requires visiting each company’s website and request a quote. For example, we’ll assume you want to compare Farmers, 21st Century and State Farm. To get each rate you have to go to every website and enter your information, which is why the first method is quicker.

The hardest method to get comparison rates is driving around to and from local insurance agencies. Shopping for car insurance online makes this process obsolete unless you require the personal advice that only a license agent can provide. However, consumers can compare the best prices online and get advice from an agent in your area and we’ll talk about that later.

It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but make absolute certain that you use exactly the same deductibles and coverage limits on every quote you get. If you enter unequal deductibles or liability limits you will not be able to determine the lowest rate for your Nissan GT-R.

Take advantage of discounts

Car insurance companies do not list every discount in a way that’s easy to find, so we took the time to find both well-publicized and also the lesser-known savings tricks you should be using. If you aren’t receiving every discount possible, you are throwing money away.

  • Claim Free – Drivers who don’t have accidents can earn big discounts when compared with accident-prone drivers.
  • Multi-policy Discount – When you combine your home and auto insurance with one insurance company you could get a discount of 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Driver’s Ed – Require your teen driver to successfully complete driver’s ed class in school.
  • Discount for Swiching Early – Select companies give a discount for signing up prior to your current policy expiration. The savings is around 10%.
  • Safe Driver Discount – Drivers who don’t get into accidents may save up to 50% more on GT-R insurance than drivers with accidents.
  • Anti-theft System – Cars that have factory anti-theft systems prevent vehicle theft and earn discounts up to 10%.
  • College Student – Youth drivers who attend school more than 100 miles from home and don’t have a car may be able to be covered for less.

Consumers should know that most discounts do not apply to the entire cost. Most cut the price of certain insurance coverages like liability and collision coverage. So even though it sounds like it’s possible to get free car insurance, it doesn’t quite work that way.

Pieces of the Nissan GT-R insurance rate puzzle

Smart consumers have a good feel for the factors that come into play when calculating the rates you pay for auto insurance. Having a good understanding of what controls the rates you pay helps enable you to make changes that can help you get lower auto insurance prices.

The list below includes a partial list of the pieces that factor into your rates.

  • Little extras can really add up – There are a lot of extra bells and whistles that can waste your money if you aren’t careful. Things like roadside assistance, accident forgiveness and additional equipment coverage may be costing you every month. They may seem like a good idea at first, but now you might not need them so remove them from your policy.
  • Safer occupants lowers premiums – Vehicles with high crash test scores get lower rates. These vehicles result in less severe injuries and any reduction in injury severity translates into fewer and smaller insurance claims and thus lower rates. If your Nissan earned at least an “acceptable” rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website or four stars on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website you are probably receiving a discount.
  • Liability coverage protects you – The liability section of your policy provides coverage if ever you are found liable for damages from an accident. It will provide legal defense coverage up to the limits shown on your policy. This coverage is very inexpensive compared to insuring for physical damage coverage, so buy as much as you can afford.
  • Having a spouse can save you money – Getting married can actually save you money on your policy. Marriage means you’re more mature and statistics show drivers who are married are more cautious.

Car insurance 101

Knowing the specifics of your insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Liability coverage – This protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not 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. Your policy might show liability limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability insurance covers claims such as loss of income, court costs, bail bonds and medical services. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but you should buy as much as you can afford.

Insurance for medical payments – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like surgery, prosthetic devices, funeral costs and dental work. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Nissan GT-R.

Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

Collision coverages – Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your GT-R caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as crashing into a ditch, hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle and scraping a guard rail. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – This pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things like theft, damage from flooding, falling objects, damage from a tornado or hurricane and vandalism. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

One last thing

When trying to cut insurance costs, make sure you don’t reduce coverage to reduce premium. In too many instances, someone sacrificed liability coverage limits only to find out that they should have had better coverage. Your aim should be to find the BEST coverage at a price you can afford.

Consumers who switch companies do it for a number of reasons such as being labeled a high risk driver, delays in responding to claim requests, unfair underwriting practices or even policy non-renewal. Whatever your reason, finding a new company can be easy and end up saving you some money.

You just learned quite a bit of information on how to shop for 2014 Nissan GT-R insurance online. The key concept to understand is the more companies you get rates for, the better your comparison will be. You may even discover the lowest premiums are with an unexpected company.
