Buying the best protection is quite easy. If you have a current auto insurance policy or need a new policy, you can use these tips to find the best rates and possibly find even better coverage. Drivers only need an understanding of the proper methods to buy auto insurance online.

Compare insurance price quotes

All the larger insurance companies make it easy to get pricing direct online. Comparing prices online is possible for anyone as you just type in your personal and coverage information as requested by the quote form. Behind the scenes, the system gets reports for credit and driving violations and generates a price determined by many factors. Online price quotes makes comparing rates easy, but having to visit each company’s website and repetitively complete many quote forms is a waste of time. But it is imperative to perform this step if you want to find the lowest possible prices on insurance.

Online rates the easy way

The preferred way to find better insurance pricing is to use a quote form to return rates from many companies. The form is fast, helps eliminate reptitive entry, and makes online price comparison much more enjoyable and efficient. Immediately after submitting the form, it is quoted and you can select any one of the resulting price quotes.

If you find a better price you simply finish the application and purchase the new policy. The whole process takes 15 minutes at the most and you will know how your current rates stack up.

Find hidden discounts to get affordable insurance rates

The price of auto insurance can be rather high, but you may find discounts that many consumers don’t even know exist. Certain credits will be shown at the time of purchase, but a few must be requested specifically before you get the savings.

  • Mature Driver Discount – If you’re over the age of 55, you are able to get a discount up to 10% on Rio insurance.
  • Auto/Home Discount – If you can combine your auto and home policy and place coverage with the same company they may give you a discount of as much as 10 to 15 percent.
  • Save with a New Car – Buying a new car model can cost up to 25% less since new vehicles are generally safer.
  • Distant Student Discount – Kids living away from home attending college and do not take a car to college may qualify for this discount.
  • Multiple Vehicles – Buying insurance for primary and secondary vehicles on one policy can reduce the rates for all insured vehicles.

Don’t be surprised that most credits do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only reduce individual premiums such as liability, collision or medical payments. So even though it sounds like you can get free auto insurance, company stockholders wouldn’t be very happy. But all discounts will definitely lower your overall bill.

Specific coverage details

Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are typical coverages found on the average insurance policy.

Collision coverage

Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Rio resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers things like crashing into a building, crashing into a ditch, colliding with another moving vehicle and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as fire damage, rock chips in glass, vandalism and hail damage. The maximum payout a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This provides protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Kia Rio.

Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Medical expense insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses for things like nursing services, prosthetic devices and rehabilitation expenses. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Coverage for liability

This coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people. It protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see policy limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as bail bonds, funeral expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, loss of income and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.
