Companies offering auto insurance don’t always advertise all their discounts very well, so the list below gives a summary of both well-publicized as well as some of the hidden discounts you could be receiving when you buy insurance coverage online.
As a sidenote, many deductions do not apply to your bottom line cost. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as comp or med pay. So even though it sounds like all the discounts add up to a free policy, that’s just not realistic.
Some of the larger companies that have some of the above discounts include:

It’s important that you understand some of the factors that go into determining the level of your policy premiums. When consumers understand what impacts premium levels, this allows you to make educated decisions that could result in much lower annual insurance costs. Lots of things are used in the calculation when you get your auto insurance bill. Some factors are common sense like a motor vehicle report, but other criteria are not quite as obvious like your continuous coverage or your commute time.
The itemized list below are some of the major factors that factor into premiums.
When it comes to buying the best car insurance coverage, there really is no perfect coverage plan. Everyone’s situation is unique.
For instance, these questions might help in determining if you could use an agent’s help.

Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Coverage for liability
This coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to other people or property by causing an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Occasionally you may see a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability insurance covers claims such as bail bonds, attorney fees, loss of income, court costs and funeral expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but buy as much as you can afford.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Nissan Stanza.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Insurance for medical payments
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for short-term medical expenses like chiropractic care, rehabilitation expenses, EMT expenses and dental work. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision insurance covers damage to your Stanza resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against things like scraping a guard rail, driving through your garage door, rolling your car, colliding with another moving vehicle and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like vandalism, rock chips in glass, fire damage, theft and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Consumers leave their current company for many reasons like being labeled a high risk driver, an unsatisfactory settlement offer, not issuing a premium refund and even policy cancellation. It doesn’t matter what your reason, choosing a new insurance company can be pretty painless.
We just covered a lot of techniques to lower your 1990 Nissan Stanza insurance premium rates. It’s most important to understand that the more price quotes you have, the better your comparison will be. You may even discover the best premium rates are with the smaller companies.
When getting insurance coverage quotes online, make sure you don’t skimp on coverage in order to save money. In many cases, an insured dropped comprehensive coverage or liability limits to discover at claim time they didn’t have enough coverage. The goal is to purchase a proper amount of coverage for the lowest price but still have enough coverage for asset protection.
