Are you at wits end from robbing Peter to pay Paul to pay auto insurance each month? You are in the same boat as many other consumers.

Big-name insurance companies like Progressive, State Farm and GEICO continually hit you with ads and consumers find it hard to not get sucked in by the cute commercials and find the best price available.

It’s important to do price comparisons quite often because auto insurance prices are usually higher with each renewal. Just because you found the lowest rates for Traverse insurance a couple years back there is a good chance you can find better premium rates now. Don’t believe everything you read about auto insurance out there, but in this article, you’re going to get the best ways to slash your auto insurance rates.

How to get insurance coverage quotes

There are several ways of comparing rate quotes from different companies. The recommended way to find cheaper 2019 Chevy Traverse rates consists of shopping online. This is very easy and can be done in a couple of different ways.

The recommended way consumers can make multiple comparisons is a comparison rater form. This form saves time by eliminating separate forms for every company. Taking the time to complete one form will return price quotes from all major companies.

A harder way to compare prices requires a visit to the website for each individual company and repeat the quote process again and again. For examples sake, let’s say you need rates from Farmers, Safeco and Liberty Mutual. To find out each rate you need to spend time going to each site individually to enter your coverage information, which is not fast way to get rate quotes.

Whichever way you choose to compare rates, double check that you are using nearly identical quote information with every price quote. If each company quotes different limits and deductibles on each one it will be very difficult to find the best deal for your Chevy Traverse. Having just a slight variation in coverage limits can make a big difference in price. And when comparison shopping, making a lot of price comparisons will improve the odds of getting lower pricing. Some insurance companies are not set up to provide quotes online, so it’s important to also get prices from them as well.

Save money by taking advantage of discounts

Insuring your vehicles can cost a lot, but you may find discounts that may help make it more affordable. Certain discounts will be triggered automatically when you purchase, but some must be specially asked for prior to getting the savings.

  • Defensive Driver Discount – Taking a driver safety course may get you a small discount depending on where you live.
  • First Accident Forgiveness – Not necessarily a discount, but companies like GEICO, Allstate and Liberty Mutual will let one accident slide before they charge you more for coverage if you are claim-free prior to being involved in the accident.
  • E-sign – A handful of larger companies provide a small discount for buying a policy and signing up on your computer.
  • Bundle and Save – If you can bundle your home and auto insurance with one company you may save at least 10 to 15 percent or more.
  • Theft Prevention System – Vehicles that have factory alarm systems and tracking devices are stolen less frequently and earn discounts up to 10% off your car insurance quote.

Don’t be surprised that some credits don’t apply to the entire cost. Most cut the price of certain insurance coverages like physical damage coverage or medical payments. Just because you may think all the discounts add up to a free policy, you won’t be that lucky.

Companies and some of the discounts are detailed below.

  • Farmers Insurance may offer discounts for early shopping, business and professional, electronic funds transfer, switch companies, and alternative fuel.
  • State Farm offers discounts for accident-free, Drive Safe & Save, multiple policy, good student, driver’s education, multiple autos, and anti-theft.
  • Liberty Mutual offers discounts including multi-policy, newly retired, exclusive group savings, new graduate, teen driver discount, and multi-car.
  • MetLife may include discounts for good driver, defensive driver, claim-free, multi-policy, good student, accident-free
  • Progressive offers premium reductions for homeowner, online signing, multi-vehicle, good student, multi-policy, and online quote discount.

Check with each company to give you their best rates. Some of the discounts discussed earlier might not be offered on policies in your area.

How much insurance coverage do I need?

When choosing proper insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there isn’t really a “best” method to buy coverage. Everyone’s situation is unique so your insurance needs to address that. For example, these questions could help you determine whether you could use an agent’s help.

  • Will I be non-renewed for getting a DUI or other conviction?
  • Why does it cost so much to insure a teen driver?
  • Am I covered if I crash into my own garage door?
  • If I drive on a suspended license am I covered?
  • How do I buy GAP insurance?
  • Is my teenager covered with friends in the car?
  • Is my babysitter covered when using my vehicle?
  • Am I covered when delivering products for my home-based business?
  • Do I need medical payments coverage since I have good health insurance?
  • Does my policy cover me when driving someone else’s vehicle?

If you can’t answer these questions but you know they apply to you, you may need to chat with a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out your zip code.

Coverage specifics

Having a good grasp of a auto insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are the normal coverages offered by auto insurance companies.

Insurance for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for bills like doctor visits, dental work, EMT expenses, rehabilitation expenses and prosthetic devices. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Liability coverages

Liability insurance will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property in an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see limits of 25/50/25 which stand for a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of income, structural damage and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This coverage provides protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Chevy Traverse.

Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

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

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as falling objects, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, fire damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane and rock chips in glass. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Collision protection

Collision coverage pays for damage to your Traverse caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, sideswiping another vehicle, rolling your car and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
