It’s safe to assume that auto insurance companies don’t want customers comparing rates. People who shop around for cheaper prices are very likely to switch companies because there is a good probability of finding lower prices. A recent survey revealed that drivers who did price comparisons regularly saved an average of $865 annually compared to drivers who never shopped around.
If finding the cheapest rates on car insurance is your ultimate goal, then having an understanding of how to get price quotes and compare coverage rates can help simplify the task of finding more affordable coverage.
It takes a little time, but the best way to get low-cost Infiniti QX56 insurance in Lexington is to start doing a yearly price comparison from different companies that sell auto insurance in Kentucky. Drivers can shop around by following these steps.
- Get an understanding of how companies price auto insurance and the modifications you can make to drop your rates. Many rating factors that cause high rates like your driving record and an imperfect credit rating can be amended by paying attention to minor details.
- Get rate quotes from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive and direct companies can provide rates from one company like Progressive and State Farm, while independent agents can provide rate quotes for many different companies.
- Compare the price quotes to your existing coverage to determine if switching companies saves money. If you find a lower rate quote and switch companies, ensure there is no coverage lapse between policies.
A valuable tip to remember is to try to compare identical deductibles and limits on every quote request and and to get rates from as many car insurance companies as possible. Doing this helps ensure a fair rate comparison and a better comparison of the market.
Keep in mind that quoting more helps you find more affordable insurance.

Best reasons to buy insurance in Kentucky
Even though Lexington QX56 insurance rates can get expensive, insurance is required by state law in Kentucky and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.
- Most states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means state laws require specific minimum amounts of liability protection in order to license the vehicle. In Kentucky these limits are 25/50/10 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
- If your QX56 has a loan, most banks will make it mandatory that you buy full coverage to guarantee loan repayment. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the lender will be forced to insure your Infiniti at an extremely high rate and require you to pay the higher price.
- Insurance protects not only your car but also your financial assets. It will also pay for all forms of medical expenses for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. Liability coverage will also pay to defend you if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will cover the repair costs.
The benefits of having insurance definitely exceed the price paid, especially if you ever need it. The average driver in Kentucky overpays as much as $810 a year so you should quote rates once a year at a minimum to save money.
Detailed coverages of your auto insurance policy
Having a good grasp of a auto insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. Auto insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the normal coverages found on the average auto insurance policy.
Coverage for medical expenses
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses such as X-ray expenses, ambulance fees and funeral costs. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers you and your occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Infiniti QX56.
Due to the fact that many Kentucky drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (which is 25/50/10), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Frequently the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Comprehensive auto insurance
Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like falling objects, hitting a deer, rock chips in glass and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Liability car insurance
This can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property that is your fault. It protects you from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see values of 25/50/10 which stand for a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $10,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability insurance covers things like medical expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, repair costs for stationary objects, legal defense fees and medical services. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but you should buy as large an amount as possible. Kentucky state minimum liability requirements are 25/50/10 but drivers should carry higher limits.
The next chart shows why the minimum limit may not be adequate coverage.
Auto collision coverage
This coverage will pay to fix damage to your QX56 from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against claims like driving through your garage door, backing into a parked car and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible on your QX56 to save money on collision insurance.
