Lower-cost Knoxville insurance quotes with discounts
Insurance is easily one of your largest bills, but you may be missing some discounts to help offset the cost. Certain credits will be shown when you complete an application, but occasionally some discounts must be manually applied before being credited.
- Accident Waiver - This one isn't a discount, but a handful of insurance companies will turn a blind eye to one accident without the usual rate increase if you have no claims before the accident.
- Discounts for New Vehicles - Buying a new car instead of a used Camry can save up to 30% because new vehicles keep occupants safer.
- Senior Citizen Discount - If you qualify as a senior citizen, you can get lower premium rates.
- Distant Student Discount - Kids who are enrolled in higher education away from home and won't have access to an insured vehicle may be able to be covered for less.
- Low Mileage - Maintaining low annual mileage can qualify you for discounted rates on garaged vehicles.
It's important to understand that some credits don't apply to the entire cost. The majority will only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like physical damage coverage or medical payments. If you do the math and it seems like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, that's just not realistic.

Three reasons to not skimp on car insurance
Despite the high cost, maintaining insurance serves several important purposes.
First, most states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to carry specific minimum amounts of liability insurance coverage in order to license the vehicle. In Tennessee these limits are 25/50/15 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $15,000 of property damage coverage.
Second, if you took out a loan on your Toyota Camry, almost every bank will force you to have physical damage coverage to guarantee payment of the loan. If you let the policy lapse, the bank may insure your Toyota for a lot more money and require you to pay the higher premium.
Third, car insurance protects both your Toyota and your assets. It will also reimburse you for all forms of medical expenses for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if you are sued as the result of an accident. If damage is caused by hail or an accident, your car insurance policy will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.
The benefits of buying car insurance outweigh the cost, especially for larger claims. Unknowingly, the average driver is wasting up to $810 a year so smart consumers compare quotes at least once a year to help ensure money is not being wasted.
