Looking for cheaper insurance coverage rates for your Pontiac Montana? There isn’t a single person who enjoys paying for insurance coverage, in particular when they could find better rates elsewhere.

Companies like State Farm, Farmers Insurance, GEICO and Allstate continually bombard you with advertising and consumers find it hard to avoid their marketing magic and take the time to shop coverage around.

Verify you’re applying every discount

Car insurance companies don’t list all possible discounts very clearly, so the below list has both the well known in addition to some of the lesser obvious credits that you can use to lower your rates.

  • Fewer Miles Equal More Savings – Keeping the miles down on your Pontiac may allow you to get cheaper prices.
  • Claim-Free Discount – Drivers with accident-free driving histories get the best auto insurance rates as compared to frequent claim filers.
  • Own a Home – Owning a house can save a few bucks due to the fact that maintaining a home is proof that your finances are in order.
  • Discounts for Government Workers – Employees or retirees of the government can save as much as 8% for Montana insurance depending on your auto insurance provider.
  • Pay Early and Save – If paying your policy premium upfront rather than spreading payments over time you can actually save on your bill.
  • Smart Student Discounts – Performing well in school can be rewarded with saving of up to 25%. Most companies allow this discount up to age 25.

Some companies that may have these benefits include:

If you are trying to find cheap insurance quotes, ask every company which discounts they offer. A few discounts may not apply everywhere.

Compare insurance coverage quotes online

Most larger insurance companies such as 21st Century, Allstate and State Farm allow consumers to get insurance quotes directly from their websites. Doing online quotes is fairly straightforward as you simply enter your coverage information on the page. After you submit the form the quote system sends out for information on your driving record and credit history and generates pricing information. Being able to quote online makes it simple to compare prices but the work required to visit different websites and fill out multiple forms can be a bit repetitive. But it’s also necessary to do this in order to get the lowest price.

There is a better way to compare rates

A better way to get multiple rate quotes uses just one form that gets price quotes from several different companies. The form is fast, eliminates repetitive work, and makes price shopping online much easier to do. As soon as the form is sent, it gets priced and you can choose any or none of the returned quotes.

If you find a better price you can simply submit the application and buy the new coverage. This process takes less than 15 minutes and can result in significant savings.

Using the same limits helps guarantee you’re receiving an apples-to-apples comparison based on the exact same insurance coverage.

When should I discuss my situation with an agent?

When it comes to buying the right insurance coverage, there is no one size fits all plan. Each situation is unique so your insurance needs to address that. Here are some questions about coverages that might point out if your insurance needs may require specific advice.

  • Is my babysitter covered when using my vehicle?
  • Does my policy pay for OEM or aftermarket parts?
  • How high should deductibles be on a 2001 Pontiac Montana?
  • Am I covered if I crash into my own garage door?
  • When should I remove comp and collision on my 2001 Pontiac Montana?
  • Is other people’s property covered if stolen from my vehicle?
  • Do I pay less for low miles?

If you can’t answer these questions but a few of them apply, you might consider talking to a licensed insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out this quick form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area.

Insurance coverages 101

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy can help you determine the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverage types found on most insurance policies.

Medical payments coverage and PIP – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses like ambulance fees, X-ray expenses and dental work. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Liability coverage – This provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 which means a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as structural damage, medical expenses, loss of income, bail bonds and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Collision – Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage pays for claims like rolling your car, hitting a parking meter and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverage – Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like falling objects, hitting a deer, vandalism, rock chips in glass and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Pontiac Montana.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Summing up your car insurance search

More affordable car insurance is definitely available both online as well as from insurance agents, so you need to shop insurance with both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some car insurance companies may not provide online price quotes and most of the time these smaller companies work with local independent agents.

You just read a lot of ways to save on 2001 Pontiac Montana insurance. The key concept to understand is the more times you quote, the better chance you’ll have of finding the cheapest insurance. Drivers may discover the most savings is with a smaller regional carrier. They may cover specific market segments cheaper than their larger competitors like Allstate and Progressive.
