Trying to find cheaper insurance coverage rates for your Cadillac ELR? No one likes having to buy insurance coverage, especially knowing they are paying too much.

Companies offering auto insurance do not advertise every available discount very well, so the following is a list of both well-publicized and the harder-to-find savings tricks you should be using. If you don’t get every credit possible, you are paying more than you should be.

Consumers can’t ignore all the ads that promise big savings by Progressive, Allstate and GEICO. All the companies make an identical promise about savings if you change to their company.
But how can every company make almost identical claims? This is how they do it.
All companies are able to cherry pick for the type of customer that earns them a profit. A good example of a desirable insured might be profiled as over the age of 50, has no tickets, and has excellent credit. A propective insured who meets those qualifications gets the lowest rates and therefore will save a lot of money.
Potential insureds who do not match this ideal profile will have to pay more money which leads to business not being written. The ad wording is “people who switch” not “people who quote” save money. That’s why insurance companies can state the savings. Because of the profiling, drivers must compare as many rates as you can. It is impossible to predict which company will fit your personal profile best.

Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
This will pay to fix 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 pays for things such as hitting a bird, damage from a tornado or hurricane, falling objects and damage from getting keyed. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
This coverage pays for damage to your ELR resulting from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against things like crashing into a building, backing into a parked car, rolling your car and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Cadillac ELR.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
This coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

You commonly see values of 100/300/100 that means you have a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers claims such as repair costs for stationary objects, attorney fees, funeral expenses and medical services. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
