The fastest way to find the cheapest 1991 Pontiac Firebird insurance rates involves getting comparison quotes online.

This easy form saves time by eliminating repetitive form submissions for every insurance coverage company. Filling out one form gets you price quotes from many national carriers. It’s the fastest way to compare.

A more difficult way to find lower rates is to take the time to go to each company website and request a quote. For sake of this example, we’ll assume you want comparison quotes from Auto-Owners, Progressive and American Family. To get rate quotes you would need to spend time on each company’s site to enter your coverage information, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

Buying insurance online can eliminate the need for a local agent unless you require the professional guidance only provided by licensed agents.

Insurance coverage breakdown

Knowing the specifics of insurance aids in choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from flooding, fire damage and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Collision insurance

This coverage pays for damage to your Firebird from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage protects against claims like damaging your car on a curb, colliding with a tree and sideswiping another vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Insurance for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like surgery, pain medications and EMT expenses. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Liability auto insurance

Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to a person or their property in an accident. It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against things like court costs, repair costs for stationary objects and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but you should buy higher limits if possible.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Pontiac Firebird.

Due to the fact that many drivers 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 important protection for you and your family. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
