Trying to find cheaper insurance coverage rates for your Hyundai Elantra GT? I can’t think of a single person who enjoys paying for insurance coverage, especially when the cost is too high.
There is such a variety of car insurance companies to purchase coverage from, and though it is a good thing to be able to choose, so many choices can make it hard to find the lowest cost provider.
Auto insurance companies do not advertise every discount in an easy-to-find place, so we break down both well-publicized and the harder-to-find ways to save on car insurance.
A little note about advertised discounts, most discount credits are not given the the whole policy. Most only cut specific coverage prices like medical payments or collision. Just because it seems like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, car insurance companies aren’t that generous.
Companies that may have these discounts include:
Double check with every prospective company which discounts they offer. All car insurance discounts may not apply everywhere.
When choosing proper insurance coverage, there really is not a “best” method to buy coverage. Every insured’s situation is different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. Here are some questions about coverages that might help in determining whether or not you could use an agent’s help.
If you’re not sure about those questions, you may need to chat with a licensed agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier
Car insurance companies such as 21st Century, Allstate and State Farm constantly bombard you with ads on television and other media. They all seem to say the same thing of big savings if you switch to them. But how can every company make the same claim?
All companies have a preferred profile for the type of customer they prefer to insure. A good example of a profitable customer might be between the ages of 40 and 55, has no driving citations, and drives newer vehicles. A propective insured that hits that “sweet spot” gets the lowest rates and is almost guaranteed to save a lot of money.
Drivers who don’t measure up to the “perfect” profile will have to pay higher premiums and this can result in business going elsewhere. The ads say “drivers who switch” not “everybody who quotes” save money. That’s the way companies can truthfully make the claims of big savings. Because of the profiling, you absolutely need to compare as many rates as you can. It’s impossible to know which company will provide you with the cheapest Hyundai Elantra GT insurance rates.
Having a good grasp of your policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Below you’ll find typical coverage types offered by car insurance companies.
Medical expense insurance – Med pay and PIP coverage pay for short-term medical expenses like hospital visits, pain medications and funeral costs. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – This coverage provides protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.
Liability auto insurance – This protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability insurance covers things such as pain and suffering, medical services, loss of income and funeral expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance 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 things such as fire damage, hitting a bird, a broken windshield, hail damage and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Collision coverage – Collision coverage covers damage to your Elantra GT caused by collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things such as sideswiping another vehicle, scraping a guard rail, hitting a mailbox and rolling your car. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Cheaper 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT insurance is possible on the web as well as from independent agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best rate selection. Some insurance companies don’t offer the ability to get a quote online and most of the time these small, regional companies sell through independent agents.
When trying to cut insurance costs, you should never buy less coverage just to save a little money. In many instances, an insured dropped comprehensive coverage or liability limits and found out when filing a claim that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. The aim is to purchase plenty of coverage for the lowest price, not the least amount of coverage.
