Want better insurance rates for your Dodge Intrepid? Scraping up a payment for high-priced Dodge Intrepid insurance can bleed your family’s budget and make it hard to pay other bills. Doing a price comparison is recommended to make sure you’re not throwing money away.
Multiple car insurance companies compete for your insurance dollar, so it can be very hard to choose a provider to find the absolute lowest rate possible.
Effectively comparing car insurance prices can be challenging if you don’t understand the best way to get rate quotes. You could waste a few hours driving to insurance agencies in your area, or you could use the internet to maximize your effort.
Many of the larger companies are enrolled in a marketplace that enables customers to only type in their quote data once, and each participating company then gives them pricing based on the submitted data. This system prevents you from having to do repetitive form submissions for each company.

Whichever way you use, make sure you use identical coverage limits for every quote you compare. If your comparisons have higher or lower deductibles you can’t possibly decipher which rate is best. Even a minor difference in coverages may result in large price differences. It’s important to know that comparing more rates from different companies will increase your chances of finding a lower rate than you’re paying now.
Some insurers do not list every possible discount very well, so the list below gives a summary of a few of the more common and the harder-to-find credits that you can use to lower your rates.
Remember that some credits don’t apply to the entire policy premium. A few only apply to individual premiums such as collision or personal injury protection. So even though it sounds like all those discounts means the company will pay you, that’s just not realistic.
Large auto insurance companies and their possible discounts are detailed below.
When quoting, ask each company or agent which credits you are entitled to. Some discounts may not be offered in your state. To choose providers who offer discounts, follow this link.

Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy aids in choosing the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Below you’ll find typical coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Liability insurance protects you from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property. This coverage protects you from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for 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 limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability insurance covers claims like medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of income, repair costs for stationary objects and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision 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 insurance covers claims such as backing into a parked car, colliding with a tree, hitting a parking meter, driving through your garage door and sustaining damage from a pot hole. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for EMT expenses, doctor visits, surgery and chiropractic care. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Dodge Intrepid.
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 is very important.
This will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like hitting a deer, fire damage, damage from getting keyed, hail damage and damage from flooding. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
