Do you qualify for discount insurance?

Companies don’t always list all disounts very clearly, so here is a list a few of the more well known in addition to some of the lesser obvious credits available to you.

  • Telematics Devices – Policyholders that allow their company to look at driving habits by using a telematics device in their vehicle such as Progressive’s Snapshot and State Farm’s In-Drive may get a rate reduction if they have good driving habits.
  • Anti-theft Discount – Vehicles optioned with advanced anti-theft systems prevent vehicle theft and that can save you a little bit as well.
  • Use Seat Belts – Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to use their safety belts may be able to save a few bucks off the PIP or medical payment premium.
  • Driver’s Education for Students – Cut your cost by having your teen driver take driver’s ed class in high school.
  • Switch and Save Discount – A few companies allow discounts for switching companies prior to the expiration date on your current policy. Ten percent is about the average savings.

What car insurance coverages do you need?

Understanding the coverages of your car insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are typical coverages available from car insurance companies.

Liability car insurance

Liability insurance can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property in an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.

Liability coverage pays for things such as pain and suffering, court costs, attorney fees, bail bonds and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Comprehensive car insurance

Comprehensive insurance pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as rock chips in glass, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a deer, a broken windshield and hail damage. The highest amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Coverage for medical expenses

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for bills such as X-ray expenses, funeral costs and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers both the driver and occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage protects against things such as colliding with a tree, hitting a mailbox and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Mazda Mazda2.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.

Take this to the bank

You just learned a lot of information how to get a better price on 2011 Mazda Mazda2 insurance. It’s most important to understand that the more rate quotes you have, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. Consumers may even find the lowest prices come from a smaller regional carrier. Regional companies may only write in your state and offer lower rates than the large multi-state companies such as State Farm, GEICO and Nationwide.

When searching for cheaper insurance quotes, make sure you don’t reduce coverage to reduce premium. There have been many cases where an insured cut collision coverage and found out when filing a claim that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. The goal is to find the BEST coverage at the best cost.
