It's an obvious statement that auto insurance companies don't want you to look at other companies. Insureds who shop around for cheaper rates will, in all likelihood, switch to a new company because there is a great chance of finding a policy with more affordable rates.

The easiest way to get affordable car insurance rates is to do an annual price comparison from insurers in Columbus. You can compare prices by completing these steps.

Many risk factors that result in higher prices such as your driving record and a poor credit rating can be improved by making minor changes to your lifestyle.

- Compare rates from exclusive agents, independent agents, and direct providers. Exclusive and direct companies can only provide price estimates from a single company like GEICO and State Farm, while independent agents can quote prices from multiple sources.
- Compare the new rate quotes to your existing policy and determine if there is any savings. If you find a better price, make sure there is no lapse in coverage.
The most important part of shopping around is to try to compare identical limits and deductibles on every price quote and and to get rate quotes from every insurance company. This helps ensure an apples-to-apples comparison and a better comparison of the market.

Specific coverages for a Subaru Impreza
Having a good grasp of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are the usual coverages offered by car insurance companies.
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like theft, a broken windshield and rock chips in glass. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for things such as hitting a parking meter, damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a building, scraping a guard rail and backing into a parked car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to choose a higher deductible on your Impreza in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage
This gives you protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Subaru Impreza.
Since many Ohio drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required (25/50/25 in Ohio), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
This coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to other's property or people in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn't cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see values of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability insurance covers things like emergency aid, legal defense fees, funeral expenses, repair bills for other people's vehicles and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it's cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible. Ohio requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/25 but it's recommended drivers buy higher limits.
The illustration below shows why the minimum limit may not be enough coverage.
Coverage for medical payments
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for immediate expenses such as X-ray expenses, dental work, hospital visits and nursing services. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
