Finding affordable insurance coverage can seem to be a challenge for people who are new to buying insurance online. People have so many choices that it can quickly become a real challenge to compare prices.

It is always a good idea to compare prices at least once a year because insurance rates go up and down regularly. Just because you had the best deal on Boxster insurance six months ago you can probably find a lower rate today. So just ignore everything you know about insurance coverage because you’re about to learn the tricks you need to know to save on insurance coverage.

Companies offer discounts so take them!

The price of auto insurance can be rather high, but you may find discounts to reduce the price significantly. Some trigger automatically when you get a quote, but a few must be asked about before being credited.

  • Service Members Pay Less – Having a deployed family member could mean lower rates.
  • Theft Prevention Discount – Cars that have factory anti-theft systems help deter theft and earn discounts up to 10%.
  • Bundle and Save – If you insure your home and vehicles with the same insurance company you will save up to 20% off your total premium.
  • Payment Method – If paying your policy premium upfront rather than paying monthly you could save 5% or more.
  • Drivers Education – Make teen driver coverage more affordable by requiring them to successfully complete driver’s ed class in school.

A little note about advertised discounts, most discount credits are not given to all coverage premiums. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as comp or med pay. Just because you may think all the discounts add up to a free policy, you’re out of luck. Any qualifying discounts will cut the cost of coverage.

A partial list of companies that may have these benefits may include but are not limited to:

  • GEICO
  • USAA
  • Progressive
  • American Family
  • Esurance
  • Farmers Insurance
  • State Farm

Before buying, ask every prospective company how you can save money. Savings might not be offered in your area.

Do I just need basic coverages?

When choosing coverage, there is no perfect coverage plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different.

For instance, these questions may help highlight whether you will benefit from professional help.

  • What if I owe more than I can insure my car for?
  • Is a new car covered when I drive it off the dealer lot?
  • Do I need motorclub coverage?
  • Can I get a multi-policy discount?
  • Do I need added coverage for expensive stereo equipment?
  • If I drive on a suspended license am I covered?
  • Should I put collision coverage on all my vehicles?
  • Do I need to file an SR-22 for a DUI in my state?
  • Is my business laptop covered if it gets stolen from my vehicle?

If you’re not sure about those questions, you may need to chat with an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, take a second and complete this form.

Can you really save $450 a year?

Insurance providers like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive constantly bombard you with ads on TV and radio. They all make an identical promise that you can save if you switch to their company. How can each company make almost identical claims? It’s all in the numbers.

All the different companies have a preferred profile for the driver that is profitable for them. For example, a preferred risk could be between 25 and 40, has no prior claims, and has a short commute. A propective insured who meets those qualifications will get very good rates and as a result will probably save a lot of money.

Potential insureds who don’t measure up to these standards must pay a more expensive rate which usually ends up with business not being written. The ad wording is “drivers who switch” not “people who quote” save money. That’s why insurance companies can advertise the way they do.

This illustrates why it’s extremely important to get quotes from several different companies. You cannot predict which company will provide you with the cheapest Porsche Boxster insurance rates.

Specific coverages for a 2001 Porsche Boxster

Knowing the specifics of a auto insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Auto insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Collision protection

This coverage covers damage to your Boxster resulting from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers claims like scraping a guard rail, hitting a mailbox, sideswiping another vehicle and colliding with a tree. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Insurance for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for ambulance fees, pain medications, hospital visits and chiropractic care. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism, hitting a deer and hitting a bird. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Porsche Boxster.

Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Frequently the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Auto liability insurance

Liability coverage will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have policy 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 limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage pays for things like repair costs for stationary objects, loss of income and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.

Compare but don’t skimp

In this article, we covered a lot of techniques to shop for 2001 Porsche Boxster insurance online. It’s most important to understand that the more you quote, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. Consumers may even find the best price on insurance is with some of the lesser-known companies.

As you shop your coverage around, do not skimp on coverage in order to save money. There are too many instances where drivers have reduced full coverage and discovered at claim time they didn’t have enough coverage. The aim is to buy enough coverage at a price you can afford while still protecting your assets.

Cheaper insurance is possible online and also from your neighborhood agents, and you need to price shop both to get a complete price analysis. Some companies may not provide online price quotes and most of the time these small, regional companies sell through independent agents.
