Finding cheap car insurance is difficult for drivers who are beginners to quoting coverage prices online. With so many options of insurers to choose from, it can be a lot of work to find the best coverage rates.
Choosing the best insurance company for you is quite easy. Just about every driver who is shopping for insurance will most likely be able to reduce their rates. But vehicle owners must know how the larger insurance companies price online insurance and use this information to your advantage.
Performing a rate comparison can take time and effort if you don’t understand the best way to get rate quotes. You could waste a few hours talking about coverages with insurance companies in your area, or you can utilize online quoting to get pricing more quickly.
Most of the larger companies participate in an industry program that enables customers to only type in their quote data once, and every company then returns a price quote. This prevents consumers from doing quotation requests for every insurance company. To find out what other companies charge click here to open in new window.
The single downside to using this type of form is you can’t choose which insurance companies to receive prices from. So if you want to select specific insurance companies to receive pricing from, we have assembled a list of insurance companies in your area. Click here to view list.
It’s up to you which method you use, but try to use the exact same coverages for each price quote. If you have different values for each quote it will be next to impossible to decipher which rate is best. Just a small difference in limits can result in a big premium difference. And when comparison shopping, comparing more rates from different companies will improve the odds of getting better pricing. Not every company provides quotes online, so it’s important to also get prices from those companies as well.
Insurance companies such as Allstate, GEICO and Progressive continually stream television, radio, and online ads. All the ads make the same claim that you’ll save big if you switch your insurance coverage to their company. But how can every company offer drivers better rates? This is the trick they use.
All the different companies give the cheapest rates for a prospective insured that will be a good risk. A good example of this type of insured may be married and over the age of 30, has no tickets, and drives less than 10,000 miles a year. A customer that fits those parameters is entitled to the best price as well as cut their rates if they switch.
Insureds who don’t measure up to these criteria will be charged higher prices which usually ends up with the driver buying from a lower-cost company. If you listen closely, the ads state “drivers who switch” but not “everyone who gets a quote” save that much money. That is how companies can truthfully make those claims. This emphasizes why drivers should compare quotes as often as possible. It’s just too difficult to predict which insurance company will have the lowest rates.
Properly insuring your vehicles can get expensive, but there could be significant discounts that could help you make your next renewal payment. Many of these discounts will be applied automatically at quote time, but some need to be asked about before you will receive the discount.
One last thing about discounts, most discounts do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only reduce individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. So even though they make it sound like you could get a free insurance policy, insurance companies wouldn’t stay in business.
A list of insurance companies and their offered discounts can be found below.

Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like hitting a bird, hail damage, fire damage, damage from flooding and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Liability insurance provides protection from damage that occurs to people or other property. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for claims like pain and suffering, emergency aid, funeral expenses and legal defense fees. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
This coverage will pay to fix damage to your 929 resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision can pay for things such as driving through your garage door, colliding with another moving vehicle and backing into a parked car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses for things like surgery, EMT expenses, funeral costs and dental work. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
This provides protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Drivers change insurance companies for many reasons like delays in paying claims, not issuing a premium refund, high prices and delays in responding to claim requests. Regardless of your reason, switching companies can be less work than you think.
