I can’t think of a single person who looks forward to paying for insurance coverage, especially when they are paying too much.

Consumers have many insurers to purchase coverage from, and though it is a good thing to have a choice, too many choices makes it more difficult to find the best rates for your vehicles.

Finding affordable coverage is not rocket science. If you have car insurance now, you will be able to save some money using these techniques. But vehicle owners need to have an understanding of the way companies market insurance on the web and use this information to your advantage.

Insurance Coverage Prices Online

All major insurance coverage companies like Progressive, GEICO, Allstate and State Farm allow you to get insurance quotes directly from their websites. This process is quite easy as you just enter your required coverages into the quote form. Once you submit the form, their system gets your credit score and driving record and returns a price quote. Being able to quote online simplifies rate comparisons, but the time it takes to visit different websites and enter the same data into a form can be a bit tiresome and repetitive. But it’s very important to do this if you are searching for the lowest price.

A less time-consuming method to lower your rates requires only one form to return rates from a bunch of companies at once. It’s a real time-saver, eliminates repetitive work, and makes online quotes much simpler. Immediately after submitting the form, it is rated and you can choose any one of the quotes that you receive. If the quotes result in lower rates, it’s easy to complete the application and buy the new coverage. The entire process takes 15 minutes at the most and you will know how your current rates stack up.

In order to find out how much you’re overpaying now, click here to open in a new tab and enter your vehicle and coverage information. To compare your current rates, we recommend you complete the form with the coverages just like they are on your policy. Doing this guarantees you’re receiving comparison quotes based on identical coverages.

Do you qualify for discounts?

Auto insurance companies don’t always advertise every available discount very clearly, so we researched both well-publicized and also the lesser-known ways to save on insurance coverage.

  • One Accident Forgiven – A handful of insurance companies will forgive one accident before raising your premiums so long as you haven’t had any claims for a particular time prior to the accident.
  • Anti-lock Brake System – Vehicles with anti-lock braking systems can avoid accidents and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
  • Passive Restraints and Air Bags – Cars that have air bags or automatic seat belts may earn rate discounts up to 30%.
  • Multi-policy Discount – If you have multiple policies with one company you may save up to 20% off your total premium.
  • Multiple Cars – Insuring all your vehicles with the same company could earn a price break for each car.
  • Save over 55 – Mature drivers can possibly qualify for a small decrease in premiums on Tribute insurance.

As a disclaimer on discounts, most discount credits are not given the whole policy. The majority will only reduce specific coverage prices like liability and collision coverage. So when the math indicates having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, it just doesn’t work that way.

Don’t assume everyone needs the same coverage

When it comes to buying adequate coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is no “best” method to buy coverage. Each situation is unique and your policy should reflect that. For example, these questions may help highlight whether you would benefit from professional advice.

  • Does medical payments coverage apply to all occupants?
  • Should I buy more coverage than the required minimum liability coverage?
  • Do I have coverage when making deliveries for my home business?
  • Why does it cost so much to insure a teen driver?
  • Should I sign the liability waiver when renting a car?
  • Does my policy cover me when driving someone else’s vehicle?
  • Does my 2006 Mazda Tribute qualify for pleasure use?
  • Do I have coverage for damage caused while driving under the influence?
  • Do I really need UM/UIM coverage?
  • Is my custom paint covered by insurance?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions, you may need to chat with a licensed insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, fill out this quick form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area.

Auto insurance coverage breakdown

Having a good grasp of your policy aids in choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on the average auto insurance policy.

Liability car insurance

Liability coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see policy limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage protects against things such as medical services, attorney fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, bail bonds and pain and suffering. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but buy as much as you can afford.

Collision insurance

This pays for damage to your Tribute resulting from a collision with another car or object. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers claims such as scraping a guard rail, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with another moving vehicle, sustaining damage from a pot hole and crashing into a building. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Mazda Tribute.

Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as hitting a deer, fire damage and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Medical expense insurance

Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like rehabilitation expenses, prosthetic devices, funeral costs, EMT expenses and nursing services. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
