Lower Your 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada Car Insurance Quotes

Buyers have options when searching for the lowest priced Oldsmobile Bravada insurance. They can either waste time contacting agents trying to get quotes or leverage the internet to compare rates.

There are both good and bad ways to compare insurance rates so we’re going to tell you the quickest way to compare rates on a Oldsmobile and get the best price possible either online or from local insurance agents.

Finding auto insurance

Most of the larger companies such as State Farm, GEICO and Progressive give coverage prices direct online. Comparing rates online is easy for anyone as all you need to do is type in your required coverages as detailed in the form. When the form is submitted, the quote system requests credit information and your driving record and gives you a price quote based on many factors.

This makes it simple to compare prices but having to visit a lot of sites and enter the same data into a form can be a bit tiresome and repetitive. But it’s very important to do this in order to find the lowest auto insurance rates.

The smarter way to find lower prices requires only one form that gets price quotes from more than one company. It’s a real time-saver, helps eliminate reptitive entry, and makes quoting online much more efficient. Immediately after submitting the form, it is rated with multiple companies and you can pick your choice of the resulting price quotes.

If a lower price is quoted, it’s easy to complete the application and purchase coverage. The entire process takes 15 minutes at the most and may save quite a bit of money.

Discount insurance quotes

Some companies don’t always advertise every discount they offer in an easy-to-find place, so the next list breaks down both the well known in addition to some of the lesser obvious credits available to lower your premiums when you buy insurance online.

  • Discount for Life Insurance – Not all insurance carriers offer life insurance, but some may give you lower insurancerates if you buy a life policy as well.
  • More Vehicles More Savings – Buying a policy with multiple vehicles on one policy can reduce the rates for all insured vehicles.
  • Driver Education Discount – Teen drivers should complete a driver education course in school.
  • Home Ownership Discount – Owning a home can help you save on insurance because owning a home means you have a higher level of financial diligence.
  • Resident Student – Any of your kids who are enrolled in a college that is more than 100 miles from home and do not have access to a covered vehicle may be able to be covered for less.
  • Telematics Data – Drivers who elect to allow companies to look at their driving habits by installing a telematics device such as Progressive’s Snapshot and State Farm’s In-Drive might see lower rates if they exhibit good driving behavior.

Keep in mind that some credits don’t apply to the entire policy premium. A few only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as liability and collision coverage. So even though you would think you would end up receiving a 100% discount, you won’t be that lucky.

Tailor your insurance coverage coverage to you

When it comes to buying adequate coverage, there is no one size fits all plan. Everyone’s situation is unique.

For instance, these questions may help you determine if your situation would benefit from professional advice.

  • Can I rate high risk drivers on liability-only vehicles?
  • Which companies will insure high-risk drivers?
  • Do all my vehicles need collision coverage?
  • Do I have newly-aquired coverage?
  • How high should my uninsured/underinsured coverage be in my state?
  • Can I pay claims out-of-pocket if I buy high deductibles?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, then you may want to think about talking to an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form. It’s fast, free and may give you better protection.

Specific coverages for an Oldsmobile Bravada

Having a good grasp of your policy aids in choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Insurance for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills like nursing services, funeral costs and ambulance fees. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada.

Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Most of the time these coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Collision coverage protection

This coverage pays for damage to your Bravada from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers claims such as hitting a parking meter, colliding with a tree, sustaining damage from a pot hole, rolling your car and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.


Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability can pay for claims like legal defense fees, attorney fees, loss of income, medical expenses and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but consider buying higher limits if possible.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like a broken windshield, damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from getting keyed, theft and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
