A Guide to Sports Car Insurance

If you own a sports car you many have noticed that sports car insurance can be really expensive. Although it can be frustrating, there are very good reasons why insurance companies charge so much for sports car insurance. It doesn’t have to do with your driving record and it’s not that they don’t like sports cars; it is simply a fact that sports car insurance is expensive because sports cars are a high risk vehicle.

Sports cars are often valuable which means that purchasing replacement parts for them can be expensive, an extra cost to the insurance company if they have to repair your car. And if they need to pay out on a total loss on a sports car, the payout can be considerably higher than on a more affordable vehicle. Also, sports cars are much more likely to be stolen than other cars, which increases the risk that the insurance company will take a loss on offering a sports car insurance policy than on, say, a family minivan.

Sports car insurance is expensive, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a reasonable rate and insure your sports car without breaking the bank. The best place to start shopping for sports car insurance is with an insurance company or agent you already use for other insurance. If you have other policies with the company you are likely eligible for a discount on additional policies, including your auto policy. This can mean a drastic reduction in the amount you pay every month for your sports car insurance policy.

If your sports car is a collector car, a modified car or in any other way valued specially, you should look for an insurance company that specializes in this type of car. They will be able to properly determine the value of your car to make sure that you are covered appropriately, and they have the experience to write a policy that provides all of the coverage you require from sports car insurance.

When you shop for sports car insurance, be sure to get numerous quotes so that you can compare them and make certain you are getting the best possible deal for your money. Be sure that you are comparing apples to apples on these policies by requesting that the same level of coverage be quoted each time. Ask about any discounts you may qualify for that can make your insurance policy more affordable.

Sports car insurance is much the same as any other auto insurance policy in the things that it covers and what is required. Unfortunately, due to the statistical likelihood that a sports car will be stolen or damaged and require expensive repairs, the rates for sports car insurance policies simply tend to be a little higher. When you consider purchasing a sports car, this is one of the things you should bear in mind. This way, you won’t have an unpleasant surprise when you have already made the purchase and then find out what your new insurance premium is going to be.
