It’s up to you how you get prices quotes, just compare identical quote information on every quote. If the quotes have different deductibles you will not be able to make an equal comparison.

Some insurance companies are not set up to provide prices over the internet, so it’s important to also get rates from them as well.

Knowing the specifics of your policy aids in choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your 2014 Bentley Continental GTC.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is very important. Most of the time your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people in an accident. It protects you from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see values of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Another option is a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as medical expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, medical services, structural damage and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
This coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as damage from getting keyed, hitting a bird, falling objects, a broken windshield and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum payout your auto insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for immediate expenses like X-ray expenses, dental work, prosthetic devices and chiropractic care. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and also covers 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
This pays for damage to your Continental GTC caused by collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims like hitting a mailbox, backing into a parked car and driving through your garage door. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
