Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but you might find some hidden discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Some trigger automatically when you get a quote, but some need to be asked about in order for you to get them.
As a disclaimer on discounts, some credits don’t apply to all coverage premiums. Most cut individual premiums such as comp or med pay. So when it seems like all those discounts means the company will pay you, companies wouldn’t make money that way. But all discounts will cut the cost of coverage.
A list of companies and the discounts they provide are detailed below.
If you need cheap insurance coverage quotes, ask each company or agent which credits you are entitled to. Depending on the company, some discounts may not be offered everywhere. To locate insurance companies that offer many of these discounts, click here to view.

Understanding the coverages of your policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the usual coverages found on most auto insurance policies.
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Mazdaspeed3 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims like colliding with another moving vehicle, hitting a mailbox, scraping a guard rail, crashing into a ditch and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like damage from getting keyed, fire damage and damage from flooding. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your 2010 Mazda Mazdaspeed3.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.
Medical expense insurance
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills for dental work, surgery, rehabilitation expenses, doctor visits and nursing services. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Liability car insurance
This will cover damage that occurs to people or other property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show values of 25/50/25 which means a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage pays for claims like loss of income, repair costs for stationary objects and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
