Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied when you purchase, but some may not be applied and must be requested specifically before they will apply. If you don’t get every credit possible, you are paying more than you should be.

  • Senior Citizens – If you’re over the age of 55, you may qualify for a discount up to 10% on Forester insurance.
  • Employee of Federal Government – Simply working for the federal government may qualify you for a discount on Forester insurance with a few auto insurance companies.

Everyone needs different coverages

When it comes to buying the right insurance coverage, there is no “perfect” insurance plan. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs so this has to be addressed. Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine if you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Why is insurance for a teen driver so high?
  • What is medical payments coverage?
  • Is my trailer covered?
  • Do I need replacement cost coverage on my 2014 Subaru Forester?
  • Should I have combined single limit or split liability limits?
  • Is business property covered if stolen from my car?
  • Does liability extend to a camper or trailer?
  • Can I rent a car in Mexico?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you know they apply to you, then you may want to think about talking to an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, take a second and complete this form or go to this page to view a list of companies. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and can help protect your family.

Insurance coverage specifics

Having a good grasp of your insurance policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Below you’ll find typical coverage types available from insurance companies.

Comprehensive coverages

This pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as theft, hail damage, vandalism and hitting a deer. The highest amount your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Subaru Forester.

Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Coverage for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for bills for pain medications, hospital visits, prosthetic devices, EMT expenses and chiropractic care. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Liability coverages

This will cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, emergency aid and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Forester resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers things like backing into a parked car, rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Smart shoppers get results

Budget-conscious 2014 Subaru Forester insurance can be found both online and with local insurance agents, and you need to price shop both in order to have the best chance of saving money. A few companies do not offer the ability to get a quote online and many times these regional insurance providers only sell through independent insurance agents.

When you buy insurance online, it’s very important that you do not skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. There have been many situations where drivers have reduced liability coverage limits and learned later that the savings was not a smart move. Your goal should be to purchase plenty of coverage at an affordable rate while not skimping on critical coverages.
