Are you getting every discount?

Auto insurance is not inexpensive, but there could be significant discounts that you may not even know about. Some discounts will apply at the time of quoting, but occassionally some discounts must be asked about prior to getting the savings.

  • Accident-Free Discounts – Good drivers with no accidents have much lower rates as opposed to policyholders that have many claims.
  • Safety Course Discount – Successfully completing a class that teaches defensive driver techniques could possibly earn you a 5% discount if you qualify.
  • Early Renewal Discounts – Some larger companies reward drivers for buying a policy prior to your current policy expiration. You could save around 10% when you buy insurance coverage online.
  • Use Seat Belts – Requiring all passengers to fasten their seat belts can save a little on the medical payments or PIP coverage costs.
  • Telematics Devices – Drivers who agree to allow driving data collection to monitor driving habits by using a telematics device such as In-Drive from State Farm or Allstate’s Drivewise system could see a rate decrease if they have good driving habits.
  • Drivers Education – It’s a good idea to have your young drivers successfully complete driver’s ed class as it will make them better drivers and lower rates.
  • Paperless Signup – A few insurance companies will provide an incentive just for signing your application on the internet.
  • Discount for Good Grades – Being a good student can be rewarded with saving of up to 25%. Most companies allow this discount up to age 25.
  • Pay Early and Save – By paying your policy upfront instead of monthly or quarterly installments you could save up to 5%.

Keep in mind that some credits don’t apply to your bottom line cost. Some only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as liability, collision or medical payments. Even though it appears adding up those discounts means a free policy, company stockholders wouldn’t be very happy.

Parts of your auto insurance policy

Understanding the coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement.

Collision coverage – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers things like hitting a mailbox, scraping a guard rail and crashing into a ditch. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

UM/UIM Coverage – This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Mazda 626.

Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as falling objects, vandalism and theft. The maximum payout your auto insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Medical costs insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses like hospital visits, rehabilitation expenses, nursing services and prosthetic devices. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Coverage for liability – This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property in an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 which stand for a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage protects against things such as funeral expenses, court costs, legal defense fees, attorney fees and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.
