Can you really save $461 a year?

Consumers constantly see and hear ads that claim the cheapest premium rates by companies like State Farm and Allstate. They all make the point that you’ll save big if you move your auto insurance coverage to their company.

That’s great but how can every company charge less that you’re paying now? Here is how they do it.

All the different companies quote their cheapest rates for the type of customer that makes them money. An example of this type of risk profile might be described as over the age of 40, has never had a policy lapse, and drives a safe vehicle. A propective insured who matches those parameters receive the lowest rate quotes and will probably save a lot if they switch.

Insureds who don’t meet this ideal profile will get higher prices which usually ends up with the customer buying from a different company. If you pay attention, the ads say “people that switch” not “everyone who quotes” save that much. That is how insurance companies can confidently make claims like that.

Because of the profiling, drivers must do a price quote comparison at every renewal. It is impossible to predict which company will fit your personal profile best.

Don’t overlook these insurance discounts

Insuring your vehicles can cost a lot, but there could be significant discounts to cut the cost considerably. Certain discounts will be applied at the time you complete a quote, but some may not be applied and must be inquired about before you will receive the discount.

  • Discount for Multiple Policies – If you have multiple policies and place coverage with the same company you could earn a discount of up to 20% and get you inexpensive auto insurance.
  • Anti-lock Brake System – Cars equipped with ABS or steering control have fewer accidents and the ABS can save up to 10%.
  • Senior Citizens – Drivers that qualify as senior citizens may qualify for better insurance rates for 100 insurance.
  • Seat Belt Discounts – Drivers who require all vehicle occupants to fasten their seat belts can save up to 15% on the medical payments or PIP coverage costs.
  • Military Deployment Discount – Having an actively deployed family member could trigger a small discount.
  • Driver Safety – Completing a defensive driving class could possibly earn you a 5% discount and easily pay for the cost of the class.
  • Discount for Home Ownership – Owning a home may earn you a small savings due to the fact that maintaining a home requires a higher level of personal finance.
  • College Student Discount – College-age children living away from home attending college without a vehicle on campus could get you a discount.
  • Claim Free – Claim-free drivers can earn big discounts as compared to drivers with a long claim history.
  • Drive Safe and Save – Drivers who avoid accidents can save as much as half off their rates for 100 insurance compared to accident prone drivers.

It’s important to understand that most discounts do not apply to your bottom line cost. Most only cut the price of certain insurance coverages like liability and collision coverage. Despite the appearance that adding up those discounts means a free policy, insurance companies wouldn’t stay in business.

A few companies that may include some of the discounts shown above are:

When to get professional advice

When buying coverage for your personal vehicles, there isn’t really a “perfect” insurance plan. Every situation is different and your policy should reflect that. For example, these questions can aid in determining whether or not you might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Is my 1991 Audi 100 covered for smoke damage?
  • What discounts do I qualify for?
  • Are rental cars covered under my policy?
  • Should I waive the damage coverage when renting a car?
  • When do I need to add a new car to my policy?
  • Does insurance cover damages from a DUI accident?

If you can’t answer these questions then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out this quick form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier It is quick, free and can help protect your family.

Auto insurance policy specifics

Knowing the specifics of auto insurance helps when choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. Auto insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are the normal coverages found on most auto insurance policies.

Collision coverage – This pays for damage to your 100 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers things like damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door, scraping a guard rail and hitting a parking meter. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Coverage for medical payments – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for expenses such as doctor visits, prosthetic devices, hospital visits and surgery. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to you and your occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Liability – This can cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property. It protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see liability limits of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability can pay for claims such as emergency aid, medical expenses and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but buy as large an amount as possible.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for 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 insurance covers things such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, fire damage and damage from flooding. The most your auto insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Final considerations

When getting auto insurance quotes online, never buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In many cases, an insured cut collision coverage and learned later that the savings was not a smart move. Your goal is to find the BEST coverage at the lowest possible cost while not skimping on critical coverages.

Throughout this article, we presented many ideas to shop for 1991 Audi 100 insurance online. The key thing to remember is the more price quotes you have, the better likelihood of getting inexpensive auto insurance. You may even find the most savings is with a lesser-known regional company. These smaller insurers may only write in your state and offer lower car insurance rates than the large multi-state companies such as State Farm or Progressive.
