Find the Right Coverage for You

Auto insurance isn’t a one size fits all model. In order to make an informed decision, you need all the facts. Whether you need insurance for just yourself, you and your spouse, or the whole family, there’s an option that keeps everyone in mind. Local climate, city or suburban living, and other surprising factors also play a big part of what you need covered.

Some factors that affect your coverage

  1. Age: The younger the insured driver, the higher the premium.
  2. Experience: How much time you’ve spent on the road will directly affect the cost of your insurance.
  3. Gender: Males are more likely to be involved in an accident, so men have to pay more for insurance than women.
  4. Marital status: Newly married? Congratulations! Married couples have lower insurance premiums than singles.
  5. Make and Model: Your car’s make and model play a role in how much you pay for insurance—a BMW is more expensive to insure than a Honda Civic.
  6. Location: The closer you are to a city, the more you’ll pay for insurance.
  7. Driving Record: If you have a clean driving record with minimal accidents, you’ll pay less in insurance premiums.
  8. Claims Record: The less claims in your insurance history, the lower the cost of your car insurance.
  9. Credit History: In most states, a solid credit history will have a positive effect on your insurance premiums.
  10. Previous Insurance Coverage: Drivers without a lapse in insurance coverage are more likely to pay less for car insurance.
  11. Use of Vehicle: Whether you use your car for business or pleasure plays a role in determining the cost to insure it.
  12. Annual Mileage: The less you drive, the lower your chance of being in an accident, and the less you pay for insurance.
  13. Coverage Limits: When you have high coverage limits, you’ll pay more in premiums.

What does auto insurance cover?

  • Liability coverage is a standard element of most auto insurance policies and is required in most states. This coverage provides protection against the costs of injury or property damage that occurs as a result of your driving.
  • Medical expense coverage helps to pay for medical bills as a result of injuries incurred during a car accident. Your medical payment coverage is available to any passenger in your vehicle, regardless of who is at fault.
  • Collision coverage is applicable to accidents that only involve property damaged by an object or another vehicle. If your car slid on black ice and hit a fence, collision coverage would be applied to cover the cost of repairing your vehicle.
  • Personal injury protection covers drivers and their passengers against out-of-pocket medical bills and lost wages due to injuries sustained during an accident, no matter which driver is at fault.
  • Comprehensive covers damage as a result of occurrences not under the control of the owner. Some of these instances include natural disasters like hail storms, flooding, and fires, vandalism, and burglary.
  • Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage pays for injuries or damage sustained from an at-fault driver whose insurance does not cover enough to pay for all the damage or expenses.
