Most larger insurance companies give insurance quotes online. Doing online price comparisons doesn’t take much effort as you just enter the coverages you want as detailed in the form. After the form is submitted, their rating system sends out for information on your driving record and credit history and quotes a price based on the information you submitted. This helps simplify price comparisons, but having to visit different websites and type in the same information gets old quite quickly. But it’s necessary to have as many quotes as possible if you want to get the lowest car insurance rates.

Understanding the coverages of insurance can be of help when determining the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are the usual coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Liability coverage – This coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show liability limits of 50/100/50 which means a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability can pay for things like funeral expenses, emergency aid, repair costs for stationary objects and medical services. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as hail damage, hitting a deer, vandalism, hitting a bird and damage from getting keyed. The most your insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your 1992 Mitsubishi Montero.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Coverage for medical expenses – Med pay and PIP coverage pay for bills like prosthetic devices, X-ray expenses, hospital visits and ambulance fees. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover you and your occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverages – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as colliding with another moving vehicle, scraping a guard rail and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
