I really doubt anyone looks forward to paying premiums for insurance coverage, particularly when they could lower their rates if they shopped around. There is such a variety of insurance companies to pick from, and though it is a good thing to be able to choose, more options can take longer to find a good deal.
It is always a good idea to shop coverage around once or twice a year since insurance prices change frequently. If you had the lowest rates for MX-5 Miata coverage at your last renewal a different company probably has better premium rates today.

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy can be of help when determining the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on the average insurance policy.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Mazda MX-5 Miata.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Normally the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Coverage for medical expenses – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses like funeral costs, hospital visits and ambulance fees. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Comprehensive insurance – Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like hail damage, hitting a bird, vandalism, a broken windshield and falling objects. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Liability coverages – This coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people in an accident. It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have policy limits of 50/100/50 that translate to $50,000 bodily injury coverage, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability insurance covers things like pain and suffering, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, funeral expenses, structural damage and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision coverage – This covers damage to your MX-5 Miata resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against things like crashing into a ditch, backing into a parked car and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
