Trying to find the cheapest insurance rates for your Nissan Quest? Searching for the cheapest insurance for your Nissan Quest can normally be a painful process, but you can learn a few tricks to save time. There are both good and bad ways to compare insurance rates so we’re going to tell you the proper way to price shop coverage for a new or used Nissan and find the best price possible either online or from local insurance agents.

It’s important to get comparison quotes occasionally because rates are usually higher with each renewal. If you had the best premium rates for Quest insurance six months ago other companies may now be cheaper. Forget anything you know (or think you know) about insurance because you’re about to learn the fastest and easiest way to reduce your cost while improving coverage.

Finding affordable coverage is not that difficult. If you have a policy now or are looking for a new policy, you will benefit by learning to get lower rates while maximizing coverage. Drivers just need to understand the proper way to compare price quotes online.

Compare auto insurance rates

Getting a cheap price on 2001 Nissan Quest insurance is actually easier than you may think. You just need to invest a few minutes comparing rate quotes from different insurance companies. Comparing prices online can be done in several different ways.

  1. Hands down the most simple method consumers can analyze rates is a comparison rater form (click to open form in new window). This easy form saves time by eliminating separate quotes for every prospective company. A single, simple form will return quotes direct from many companies. This is perfect if you don’t have a lot of time.
  2. A more time consuming way to get quotes online requires visiting the website for each individual company to complete a price quote. For example, let’s assume you are doing a rate comparison from State Farm, Farmers and Allstate. You would need to go to each individual site and repeatedly enter your information, and that explains why we recommend the first method.

It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but try to keep exactly the same coverage information for every company. If each company quotes different limits and deductibles on each one you can’t possibly determine which company has the best rates.

Find hidden discounts to get affordable insurance coverage quotes

Insurance coverage can be pricey, but there may be some discounts that could drop your premiums quite a bit. Some trigger automatically at quote time, but occassionally some discounts must be specially asked for before you will receive the discount.

  • New Car Discount – Putting insurance coverage coverage on a new car can cost up to 25% less compared to insuring an older model.
  • Low Mileage – Driving fewer miles may allow you to get lower premium rates due to less chance of an accident.
  • Passive Restraints – Cars that have air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems may earn rate discounts as much as 30%.
  • Early Payment Discounts – By making one initial payment rather than spreading payments over time you may reduce your total bill.
  • Early Renewal Discounts – Select larger companies give a discount for switching to them early. It can save you around 10%.

Don’t be surprised that most credits do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. So when it seems like all the discounts add up to a free policy, you won’t be that lucky. Any amount of discount will definitely reduce the amount you have to pay.

A few popular companies and their possible discounts are shown below.

  • Farmers Insurance may offer discounts for pay in full, bundle discounts, electronic funds transfer, early shopping, distant student, switch companies, and youthful driver.
  • Esurance has discounts for renters, online shopper, anti-lock brakes, paid-in-full, Switch & Save, good student, and claim free.
  • State Farm may include discounts for good driver, passive restraint, anti-theft, safe vehicle, accident-free, and driver’s education.
  • GEICO has savings for federal employee, multi-vehicle, driver training, anti-theft, military active duty, and good student.
  • Allstate may have discounts that include EZ pay plan discount, auto/life discount, FullPay discount, teenSMART discount, senior citizen, resident student, and premier plus.

Check with every company which credits you are entitled to. Discounts might not be offered on policies in every state.

Tailor your car insurance coverage to you

When choosing coverage, there really is no “best” method to buy coverage. Each situation is unique.

For instance, these questions may help highlight if you might need professional guidance.

  • Exactly who is provided coverage by my policy?
  • Do I have coverage when using my vehicle for my home business?
  • Can my teen drive my company car?
  • I have a DUI can I still get coverage?
  • Can I afford to pay high deductible claims out of pocket?
  • What discounts do I qualify for?
  • I don’t drive much so do I pay less?
  • Why am I required to buy high-risk coverage?

If you can’t answer these questions but a few of them apply, you might consider talking to an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, complete this form. It only takes a few minutes and can provide invaluable advice.

Insurance coverage options for a Nissan Quest

Learning about specific coverages of insurance can help you determine appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Liability auto insurance

This coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects you from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.

Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 100/300/100 which means a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.

Liability coverage protects against things like emergency aid, loss of income and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.

Coverage for medical expenses

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like hospital visits, X-ray expenses, ambulance fees, chiropractic care and doctor visits. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive insurance

This coverage covers 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 things like hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, fire damage, theft and falling objects. The most a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Collision insurance

This pays for damage to your Quest resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for things such as sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a ditch, driving through your garage door, rolling your car and hitting a mailbox. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your 2001 Nissan Quest.

Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.
