Car insurance can cost a lot, but discounts can save money and there are some available that you may not even be aware of. Some trigger automatically at the time of purchase, but a few need to be requested specifically before being credited.

So when the math indicates it’s possible to get free car insurance, you won’t be that lucky. Any qualifying discounts will reduce your overall premium however.

Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
This will pay to fix damage to your Titan resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things like hitting a parking meter, sustaining damage from a pot hole and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Med pay and PIP coverage pay for bills like pain medications, surgery, hospital visits and EMT expenses. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as fire damage, damage from flooding and hitting a deer. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your 2016 Nissan Titan.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Liability insurance provides protection from damage or injury you incur to people or other property by causing an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Occasionally you may see a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against claims like bail bonds, legal defense fees and emergency aid. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
