Use discounts to get cheaper insurance quotes

Some insurers don’t list every possible discount very clearly, so the list below contains some of the best known and also the lesser-known discounts that you may qualify for.

  • Discount for New Cars – Adding a new car to your policy can be considerably cheaper since newer models are generally safer.
  • E-sign Discounts – A handful of larger companies may give you up to $50 simply for signing on the web.
  • Drive Less and Save – Maintaining low annual mileage may enable drivers to earn cheaper rates.
  • Senior Citizen Rates – Mature drivers may qualify for a small decrease in premiums for Altima insurance.
  • Switch and Save Discount – A few companies give discounts for buying a policy early. Ten percent is about the average savings.

Drivers should understand that most discounts do not apply to the entire policy premium. Most cut the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. So when the math indicates it’s possible to get free car insurance, company stockholders wouldn’t be very happy.

A list of insurance companies and a selection of discounts are shown below.

  • GEICO offers discounts for multi-policy, anti-lock brakes, air bags, five-year accident-free, and driver training.
  • MetLife offers premium reductions for accident-free, defensive driver, multi-policy, good student, good driver, claim-free

Tailor your insurance coverage coverage to you

When choosing proper insurance coverage for your vehicles, there really is no best way to insure your cars. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s.

These are some specific questions may help you determine if you might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Will my vehicle be repaired with OEM or aftermarket parts?
  • I have health insurance so do I need medical payments coverage?
  • Does my insurance cover a custom paint job?
  • Should I rate my 2002 Nissan Altima as pleasure use or commute?
  • What is no-fault insurance?
  • Is a blown tire covered by insurance?
  • I don’t drive much so do I pay less?
  • Can I pay claims out-of-pocket if I buy high deductibles?

If you can’t answer these questions but a few of them apply, you may need to chat with a licensed insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, fill out this quick form. It’s fast, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Car insurance 101

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Car insurance terms can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, fire damage, damage from flooding, hitting a deer and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The most your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.


Liability coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to people or other property in an accident. It protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t 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. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as emergency aid, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, attorney fees, court costs and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Collision coverage protection

This will pay to fix damage to your Altima resulting from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers claims such as crashing into a building, damaging your car on a curb, colliding with a tree and crashing into a ditch. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Medical expense insurance

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for expenses such as ambulance fees, doctor visits, prosthetic devices and EMT expenses. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to you and your occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
