You may qualify for discounts
Some companies don't always list all discounts in an easy-to-find place, so here is a list both well-publicized and also the more inconspicuous credits that may apply to you. If you don't get every credit available, you are just wasting money.
- Federal Employees - Simply working for the federal government can earn a discount up to 10% depending on your company.
- Defensive Driver - Successfully completing a course that instructs on driving safety could earn you a small percentage discount and easily recoup the cost of the course.
- E-sign Discounts - Some larger companies will give a small break just for signing your application on their website.
- Telematics Data - Insureds who allow their auto insurance company to look at their driving habits through the use of a telematics system such as State Farm's In-Drive may see discounts if they show good driving skills.
- Good Driver Discount - Insureds without accidents can get discounts for up to 45% lower rates than drivers with accidents.
Consumers should know that many deductions do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only cut specific coverage prices like liability and collision coverage. So even though you would think you would end up receiving a 100% discount, it just doesn't work that way.

Coverages available on your policy
Understanding the coverages of your car insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are the usual coverages found on most car insurance policies.
Comprehensive coverages - This coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, hail damage, rock chips in glass and a broken windshield. The highest amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle's value is low it's not worth carrying full coverage.
Coverage for liability - Liability insurance provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show liability limits of 30/60/25 which means $30,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged property. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against claims like medical services, court costs and medical expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but it's cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible. Texas requires drivers to carry at least 30/60/25 but it's recommended drivers buy more liability than the minimum.
Coverage for medical payments - Med pay and PIP coverage pay for short-term medical expenses like EMT expenses, X-ray expenses, pain medications, dental work and nursing services. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
Uninsured and underinsured coverage - Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your vehicle.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law (30/60/25 in Texas), their limits can quickly be used up. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Collision coverages - Collision insurance covers damage to your vehicle resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against claims like colliding with a tree, sideswiping another vehicle and crashing into a ditch. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Smart shoppers get results
As you prepare to switch companies, you should never buy poor coverage just to save money. Too many times, drivers have reduced uninsured motorist or liability limits only to regret they didn't purchase enough coverage. The aim is to buy the best coverage you can find at the best price.
