Just slight variations in insurance coverages may cause a big price difference. Just remember that comparing more rates from different companies increases your odds of finding the best rates.

Learning about specific coverages of your policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Coverage for liability
This can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property that is your fault. It protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
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 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability insurance covers claims like medical services, attorney fees, medical expenses and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision
This pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims like fire damage, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from getting keyed, falling objects and hitting a deer. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Medical costs insurance
Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for bills for prosthetic devices, pain medications, EMT expenses and ambulance fees. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Collision coverage covers damage to your Cavalier caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as hitting a mailbox, colliding with a tree, driving through your garage door, hitting a parking meter and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Chevy Cavalier.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
