Looking for lower insurance coverage rates for your Chevrolet Prizm? Perplexed by the sheer number of insurance coverage company choices? You’re not the only one! Drivers have so many choices that it can be a big hassle to find the perfect company for you.

It’s a good habit to get comparison quotes once or twice a year since rates trend upward over time. Despite the fact that you may have had the best price for Prizm coverage a few years ago other companies may now be cheaper. Starting now, ignore everything you know about insurance coverage because I’m going to teach you how to use online quotes to find lower rates on insurance coverage.

The most recommended method to compare car insurance company rates is to realize most larger insurance companies will pay a fee to give you rate quotes. All consumers are required to do is provide details such as types of safety features, driver ages, the type of vehicles you drive, and level of coverage desired. Your insurance information is instantly submitted to multiple insurance providers and you get price estimates quickly.

When should I use an insurance agent?

When choosing adequate coverage, there isn’t really a one size fits all plan. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs.

Here are some questions about coverages that might help in determining if you might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Does having multiple vehicles earn me a discount?
  • Does coverage extend to Mexico or Canada?
  • Is my nanny covered when driving my vehicle?
  • How does medical payments coverage work?
  • When should my teen driver be added to my policy?
  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?
  • What is the ISO rating for a 2001 Chevy Prizm?

If you can’t answer these questions, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, simply complete this short form.

Car insurance coverage options for a Chevy Prizm

Understanding the coverages of car insurance aids in choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Insurance for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses for ambulance fees, hospital visits, surgery, X-ray expenses and prosthetic devices. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers things such as hitting a parking meter, colliding with a tree and sustaining damage from a pot hole. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. You can also choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims like rock chips in glass, damage from getting keyed, damage from flooding and fire damage. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Auto liability

This will cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against things such as medical services, attorney fees, loss of income, pain and suffering and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but buy as much as you can afford.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Chevy Prizm.

Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Normally the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
