There is not much to be done about the first two things but the third point is where you need to focus, that is how to get the best deal on your car coverage. As with any other product or service one needs to understand and have a clear understanding on few things before even considering going to an insurer. He must be aware: how much coverage he needs, what’s his budget, what are his rights, which discounts are at his disposal, what affects his premium and where to find the best deals.

Understand how much coverage you need

How much coverage I need is the question that you need to ask yourself before you do anything else. Each person has different needs, drives different vehicle, drives different routes and mileage, lives in particular area, etc. According to the Virginia laws you need to have at least basic coverage if you want to drive legally. The basic coverage can cover only:

–              Property damage liability ($5.000 per person, per accident)

–              Persona iVAury protection ($15.000 per person, per accident and up to $250.000 per more than one person, per accident for certain iVAuries)

In addition to that the basic policy comes with limited right to a lawsuit meaning that you can only sue in cases such as: loss of body part, loss of fetus, permanent iVAury, significant disfigurement, significant scaring and death.

Understand the type of discounts

The car insurance industry is one of the most competitive ones and that’s a well – known fact. As a result of that the insurers constantly introduce new discounts in order to attract more clients. According to the insurance laws every insurer needs to provide a list of all discounts that they give plus those that are obligated to give. That is if you ask them to do so. For an example, the state of Virginia has a law that says anyone that passes the defensive driving course is eligible for a discount.

Understand what affect your premiums

Once again if you ask your insurance agent what affects your premiums he has an obligation to answer that and explain you everything regarding that. That should help you make a plan how to lower them if possible.
