View 2013 Chevrolet Traverse Car Insurance Rates

Buyers have lots of choices when searching for the lowest priced Chevy Traverse insurance. You can either waste hours driving around trying to get quotes or save time using the internet to get rate quotes. There is a better way to find car insurance online so we’re going to tell you the absolute fastest way to price shop coverage for a Chevy and locate the cheapest rates from local insurance agents and online providers.

Low cost car insurance quotes

Finding a lower price on 2013 Chevy Traverse insurance can be quick and easy. The only requirement is to take a few minutes comparing rate quotes from some recommended companies. Comparing prices online can be done using one of these methods.

  1. If you are pressed for time, the simplest way to get quotes for comparison would be an industry-wide quote request form like this one (opens in new window). This type of form prevents you from having to do multiple quote forms for every prospective company. Completing one form gets insurance cost estimates from many national carriers. Recommended for those who want to invest the least amount of time.
  2. A slightly less efficient method to compare rate quotes requires you to visit each company website and request a quote. For instance, let’s say you want to compare Progressive, Allstate and State Farm. You would need to spend time on each company’s site to enter your coverage information, which can get rather old.

  3. The least efficient method of getting rate comparisons is to spend time driving to local insurance agencies. Comparing rates online has reduced the need for local agents unless you want the professional abilities that you can only get from talking to an agent. However, consumers can find lower rates online and still use a local agent.

Which method you use is up to you, but ensure you are comparing the exact same coverage data for each quote you get. If the quotes have mixed coverages then you won’t be able to get a fair rate comparison.

Insurance coverage policy discounts you can’t miss

Some providers don’t necessarily list their entire list of discounts very well, so the list below gives a summary of both the well known and also the lesser-known credits that you can use to lower your rates. If you’re not getting every credit available, you could be paying more than you need to.

  • Employee of Federal Government – Having worked for a branch of the government could provide a small rate reduction for Traverse insurance with a few insurance coverage companies.
  • Discounts for Seat Belt Usage – Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to use a seat belt can save a little on the medical payments or PIP coverage costs.
  • Auto/Home Discount – If you have multiple policies with one insurance company you may save nearly 15% which can help you find cheap insurance coverage.
  • Clubs and Organizations – Being a member of qualifying employment or professional organizations could earn you a nice discount on insurance coverage.
  • Low Mileage Discounts – Low annual miles could earn cheaper premium rates.
  • Accident Forgiveness – This one isn’t a discount, but companies like State Farm and Progressive allow you one accident before hitting you with a surcharge if you have no claims for a certain period of time.
  • Theft Deterent Discount – Anti-theft and alarm system equipped vehicles are stolen less frequently so companies will give you a small discount.

You should keep in mind that most of the big mark downs will not be given the the whole policy. Most cut specific coverage prices like physical damage coverage or medical payments. So even though they make it sound like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, it just doesn’t work that way.

The best insurance coverage companies and a summarized list of policyholder discounts are shown below.

  • Farm Bureau offers discounts for renewal discount, 55 and retired, good student, multi-vehicle, youthful driver, driver training, and safe driver.
  • Liberty Mutual discounts include preferred payment discount, newly married, new move discount, multi-car, teen driver discount, and new vehicle discount.
  • State Farm policyholders can earn discounts including student away at school, accident-free, defensive driving training, passive restraint, and good driver.
  • Auto-Owners Insurance may have discounts that include student away at school, safe driver, safe vehicle, good student, group or association, and company car.
  • GEICO has discounts for driver training, anti-lock brakes, emergency military deployment, daytime running lights, five-year accident-free, and good student.
  • SAFECO may include discounts for multi-car, teen safety rewards, safe driver, anti-lock brakes, homeowner, accident prevention training, and bundle discounts.

If you need lower rates, check with each company which discounts you may be entitled to. Depending on the company, some discounts may not apply to policyholders in your area. If you would like to view companies that offer discounts, click here.

Insurance agents can help

When buying the right insurance coverage, there isn’t really a cookie cutter policy. Everyone’s needs are different.

  • Do I need rental car coverage?
  • Do I have coverage if my license is suspended?
  • Why do I only qualify for high-risk insurance?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, complete this form. It only takes a few minutes and can help protect your family.

Coverages available on your policy

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

UM/UIM Coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your 2013 Chevy Traverse.

Since a lot of 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.

Medical costs insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses for hospital visits, ambulance fees, surgery and X-ray expenses. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

This pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like hitting a deer, fire damage and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Collision insurance

This covers damage to your Traverse resulting from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage pays for things like damaging your car on a curb, sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability

This coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and 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. You might see values of 25/50/25 which stand for a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.

Liability can pay for claims like emergency aid, medical services, repair costs for stationary objects, attorney fees and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
