Insurance discounts are available to lower rates
Some companies don't always advertise every discount they offer very clearly, so we took the time to find a few of the more well known and the more hidden credits that you can use to lower your rates. If they aren't giving you every credit you qualify for, you're paying more than you need to.
- Savings for New Vehicles - Buying insurance on a new vehicle can save up to 30% since new vehicles are generally safer.
- Defensive Driver Discount - Taking part in a safe driver class could cut 5% off your bill if you qualify.
- Multiple Policy Discount - When you have multiple policies and place coverage with the same company you may earn at least 10 to 15 percent or more.
- Student in College - Children living away from Henderson attending college and do not have access to a covered vehicle may qualify for this discount.
- Discount for Life Insurance - Larger insurance companies have a discount if you purchase life insurance.
- Lower Rates for Military - Having a family member in the military can result in better insurance rates.
- First Accident Forgiveness - This one is not really a discount per se, but some insurance companies may permit one accident without raising rates if your claims history is clear for a certain period of time.
- Anti-theft Discount - Cars and trucks that have factory anti-theft systems are less likely to be stolen and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
- Telematics Devices - People who choose to allow their insurance company to scrutinize vehicle usage remotely like Drivewise from Allstate or In-Drive from State Farm could save a few bucks if they show good driving skills.
- Clubs and Organizations - Having an affiliation with a qualifying organization may earn a discount when shopping for insurance.
You can save money using discounts, but most of the big mark downs will not be given to all coverage premiums. Most only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as liability, collision or medical payments. Even though it may seem like you can get free auto insurance, insurance companies wouldn't stay in business.
Larger insurance companies and a selection of discounts are detailed below.
- GEICO has discounts for five-year accident-free, multi-vehicle, seat belt use, defensive driver, air bags, anti-lock brakes, and emergency military deployment.
- Auto-Owners Insurance offers discounts including multiple vehicles, company car, safe vehicle, anti-theft, safe driver, air bags, and paid in full.
- American Family offers premium reductions for defensive driver, mySafetyValet, good student, bundled insurance, and accident-free.
- Esurance policyholders can earn discounts including good driver, DriveSense, safety device, online shopper, and paid-in-full.
- Progressive has savings for multi-policy, online signing, continuous coverage, homeowner, online quote discount, and multi-vehicle.
- State Farm offers discounts for passive restraint, multiple autos, Drive Safe & Save, defensive driving training, safe vehicle, and driver's education.
- AAA may offer discounts for pay-in-full, good student, education and occupation, good driver, AAA membership discount, and multi-policy.
It's a good idea to ask each insurance company which discounts can lower your rates. Some of the earlier mentioned discounts might not apply in your area.

If you want to use local Henderson agents, it's helpful to know the different agency structures that you can select. Insurance agencies can be categorized as either independent (non-exclusive) or exclusive.
Agents in the independent channel do not work for one specific company and that allows them to write policies with any number of different companies enabling the ability to shop coverage around. If your agent finds better pricing, they can switch companies in-house and you won't have to switch agencies. When comparing rates, you will want to get insurance quotes from at a minimum one independent agency to have the most options to choose from. Most independent agents also contract with companies you've never heard of which could offer lower prices.

Choosing the best vehicle insurance in Nevada is an important decision
Despite the high insurance cost for a Chevy Tahoe in Henderson, maintaining insurance may be required and benefits you in several ways.
- Almost all states have minimum liability requirements which means state laws require a minimum amount of liability insurance in order to be legal. In Nevada these limits are 15/30/10 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you have a loan on your Tahoe, it's most likely the lender will make it mandatory that you buy insurance to protect their interest in the vehicle. If you do not keep the policy in force, the bank may buy a policy for your Chevy for a much higher rate and force you to pay much more than you were paying before.
- Car insurance protects your Chevy Tahoe and your assets. It will also reimburse you for medical bills for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. Liability insurance will also pay attorney fees if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If you receive damage to your vehicle caused by a storm or accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will pay to have it repaired.
The benefits of having insurance outweigh the cost, particularly if you ever have a claim. The average driver in Nevada is currently overpaying as much as $855 a year so it's recommended you shop around at every renewal to ensure rates are inline.
Car insurance coverages and their meanings
Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.
This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. This insurance protects YOU against other people's claims. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 15/30/10 which stand for $15,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of coverage for damaged property. Some companies may use a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as bail bonds, pain and suffering, funeral expenses and structural damage. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford. Nevada requires drivers to carry at least 15/30/10 but you should consider buying better liability coverage.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things like hitting a deer, theft and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Medical expense insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for things like EMT expenses, doctor visits, prosthetic devices and rehabilitation expenses. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle's damage.
Since many Nevada drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (15/30/10 in Nevada), their limits can quickly be used up. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Usually these coverages are identical to your policy's liability coverage.
Coverage for collisions
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things like colliding with a tree, sideswiping another vehicle and hitting a parking meter. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible on your Tahoe to get cheaper collision coverage.
More quotes mean more car insurance savings

It doesn't matter why you want to switch finding a great new company is pretty easy and you might even save some money in the process.
