Verify you're applying every discount
Some insurers don't always advertise all available discounts very well, so we took the time to find both the well known and the harder-to-find discounts that you can inquire about if you buy Henderson auto insurance online. If they aren't giving you every credit you qualify for, you're paying more than you need to.
- Discounts for Safe Drivers - Accident-free drivers may save up to 50% more than less cautious drivers.
- Sign Online - Certain car insurance companies will give a small break for buying your policy online.
- Discounts for Seat Belt Usage - Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to fasten their seat belts could save 15% off the PIP or medical payment premium.
- No Accidents - Insureds with no claims or accidents have much lower rates when compared to policyholders that have many claims.
- Life Insurance Discount - Not every insurance company offers life insurance, but if they do you may earn a break if you buy a life policy as well.
- Data Collection Discounts - Insureds that choose to allow their insurance company to spy on vehicle usage by using a telematic data system such as State Farm's In-Drive could save a few bucks as long as the data is positive.
Discounts reduce rates, but you should keep in mind that most discount credits are not given to all coverage premiums. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as liability and collision coverage. Just because it seems like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, it just doesn't work that way. But any discount will help reduce your policy cost.
Auto insurance companies who may offer some of the above discounts include:
It's a good idea to ask each insurance company how many discounts you can get. Some discounts listed above may not be available in Henderson. For a list of companies that offer discounts in Henderson, follow this link.
Why do I need car insurance?
Even though Henderson 500 insurance rates can get expensive, insurance may be required for several reasons.
- Just about all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means state laws require a specific minimum amount of liability insurance coverage in order to drive the car. 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 500, almost all lenders will have a requirement that you carry insurance to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the bank may insure your Fiat for a much higher rate and force you to pay for the much more expensive policy.
- Insurance safeguards both your assets and your car. It also can pay for many types of medical costs for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, also pays expenses related to your legal defense if you cause an accident and are sued. If damage is caused by hail or an accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will cover the repair costs.
The benefits of buying car insurance definitely exceed the cost, particularly if you ever have a claim. According to a survey of 1,000 drivers, the average driver is overpaying more than $700 annually so smart consumers compare quotes each time the policy renews to ensure rates are inline.
Auto insurance can be complex
When it comes to buying adequate coverage, there is no perfect coverage plan. Everyone's situation is a little different and your policy should reflect that. For example, these questions might point out whether or not you would benefit from an agent's advice.
- Can I rent a car in Mexico?
- What if I don't agree with a claim settlement offer?
- Are there any extra discounts I can get?
- Is my business laptop covered if it gets stolen from my vehicle?
- Do I have coverage for damage caused while driving under the influence?
- Am I covered when renting a car or should I buy coverage from the car rental agency?
- Can my teen driver be rated on a liability-only vehicle?
If it's difficult to answer those questions but you know they apply to you, you may need to chat with an agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form or click here for a list of auto insurance companies in your area.

When researching a reliable insurance agency, it's important to understand the different types of agents that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Agencies in Henderson are categorized either independent or exclusive.
Independent Agents (or Brokers)
Independent insurance agents are not employed by any specific company so they can insure your vehicles with lots of companies depending on which coverage is best. If you are not satisfied with one company, they simply move your policy to a different company and the insured can keep the same agent. If you are comparing insurance prices, we highly recommend that you get some free quotes from at a minimum one independent agency to get the best comparison.

- Does the quote include credit and driving reports?
- What kind of financial rating does the company have?
