News Image

Online car insurance quotes will help policyholders have a better view of the insurance market. Online quotes can offer accurate insurance estimates so that policyholders can plan ahead of an insurance budget.

Drivers that use online quotes will gain multiple advantages, but also some disadvantages. The main advantages of online quotes are the following:


  • They are fast to obtain. Policyholders don’t have to spend countless hours traveling from one insurance agent to another in order to obtain quotes. Drivers only need a good internet connection and a device that can browse the internet. Once an online questionnaire is completed the online quotes will be displayed immediately.
  • Online quotation forms are good negotiations simulators. The same questions an insurance agent will ask during the negotiations can be found on online questionnaires. Completing online forms will help drivers prepare for the real negotiations. Drivers will know what questions they will need to answer and what documents they need to prepare.
  • Online quotes will help drivers discover multiple insurers. Brokerage websites work with multiple insurance companies. Online quotes will allow policyholders to discover multiple insurance companies that are authorized to sell policies in their areas. Some of these insurers can be smaller local or regional companies that can sell better insurance deals.


The main disadvantages of online quotes are the following:

  • Online quotes do not offer the final price. Online quotes are only estimates. Drivers will need to contact an insurance company and negotiate in order to obtain the final price. In many cases, insurance companies will add or subtract different questions, and the final price can be very different compared to online quotes.
  • Some online forms ignore important aspects. Depending on which website is used, some discounts can be missing. For example, there are online forms where drivers can’t mention they have graduated defensive driving courses or they have installed safety devices in their vehicles.

A New Guide Presents Top Ways To Get Cheaper Auto Insurance


News Image

“Smart drivers can get cheaper auto policies, by following several smart methods”, said Russell Rabichev, Marketing Director of Internet Marketing Company.

Car insurance companies determine the premium paid by a driver after analyzing multiple factors. Some of these factors are under the policyholder’s control and can help him get cheaper car insurance.

  • Adjust the deductible. Drivers can increase the deductible levels to lower the price of their insurance rate. In many cases, the premium rates drop as much as 30%. Policyholders should consider adjusting the deductibles to a level they can support if something bad happens.
  • Consider dropping medical payments coverage. If a policyholder already has health insurance, then he will not need the medical payments coverage. In most cases, the two policies overlap.
  • Policyholders should consider buying a cheaper car to insure. Cars that are considered safe and come equipped with safety features and anti-theft devices are cheaper to insure.
  • Consider the low mileage discount. If a policyholder doesn’t drive his car too often, he might be eligible for a low mileage discount that typically ranges from 15% to 20%.
  • Bundle policies. Insurance companies offer substantial discounts to those policyholders that choose to bundle policies. Policyholders can choose to bundle at least two vehicle policies or their vehicle policy can be bundled with their home insurance policy.
  • Look for additional discounts. Insurance companies offer plenty of discounts, like a senior citizen discount, loyalty discount, good driver discount, good student discount. Policyholders should check for what discounts may apply.

A New Guide Presents Several Ways Seniors Can Get Affordable Car Insurance


News Image

“Senior citizens can still get advantageous deals. Compare prices online and track the best offers”, said Russell Rabichev, Marketing Director of Internet Marketing Company.

Age is a very influential factor when determining insurance costs. Seniors, like teen drivers alike, are considered high-risk drivers. But the reasons are different. However, the elderly can still find ways to lower insurance premiums. Follow the next tips:


  • Take a driving class. Graduating a defensive driving course will help to secure a discount. These classes are don’t cost much and can be offered in-person in a classroom, or you can stream them online. In these driving courses, senior citizens will find out how aging and medication affect their ability to drive and how to deal with certain age-related conditions.
  • Install anti-theft devices. On the market, there are multiple types of devices that will make your vehicle safer against thieves. Electronic alarms, ignition kill switches, GPS tracking systems, steering wheel locks, electronic immobilizers, and many other safety devices will help drivers acquire a discount.
  • Buy a cheaper car. The vehicle makes, model, and year of production are all important factors that determine the price of a policy. The cheapest vehicles to insure are slightly used SUV’s, minivans, and crossovers. Also, look for models that have safety features installed.
  • Join a UBI program. Allow the insurer to install a small telematics device inside the vehicle. This device will record mileage, sudden changes in speed, hard braking, cornering, and the time of day when the vehicle is driven. The insurer will customize the price based on this data.
  • Shop online quotes. The best places to shop for online auto insurance quotes are brokerage websites. In order to get accurate estimates, senior citizens should be careful when they complete the questionnaires and make sure they provide accurate data. It is recommended to complete at least three car quotes in order to make an idea of how their policy would look like.

Top Tips For Negotiating With A Car Insurance Claim Adjuster


News Image

“Working with a claim adjuster can be challenging. Gather all necessary documents and provide them when asked. Also, remain calm and cooperate with that person”, said Russell Rabichev, Marketing Director of Internet Marketing Company.

After being notified about the incident involving its client(s), the insurance company will dispatch a team of experts to evaluate the damage, the car repair costs and how much money will be spent to settle the claim When dealing with claim adjusters it is important to remember that they work for the company.

Here are a few tips on how to work with claim adjusters:

  • Have all documents prepared. It is important to have everything organized and all papers and photos ready for inspection. The policyholder must gather all medical records, medical bills and repair bills and provide them when asked by claim adjusters. Having photos taken immediately after the accident may strengthen the policyholder’s claim. Furthermore, prepare a copy after the police report. The claim adjuster will compare all the given information and extrapolate the useful info.    
  • Have in mind a minimum claim settlement sum. Consider a minimum settlement before negotiations. Use the medical and car repair receipts to determine this sum. Also take into consideration lost wages resulting from the accident – how much money is lost, past, present, and future, as a result of the injury. In some states this is called” lost earning capacity”.
  • Offer the claim settlement proposal to the adjuster. When negotiations start, back that sum of money with arguments. The policyholder must provide receipts, police reports, pictures, medical reports, etc.
  • Do not accept low offers. Claim adjusters work for insurance companies. It’s their job to minimize the financial losses of the company. So they will initially provide a very low offer. This is a common tactic and it is used to see how the policyholder reacts.
  • Be cooperative during negotiations. Even though the initial offer was really low, stay calm and professional. Provide arguments and gradually reach a compromise. Provide extra documents and photos when required.

HazardHub launches an industry-first Catastrophic Flood Model


News Image

“For the longest time, insurers, business owners, and consumers have been vexed by one question – why is my supposedly safe property now underwater?” – Dr. Brady Foust, Ph. D.

HazardHub, the USA’s fastest-growing supplier of geospatial risk data, a 2020 Gartner Cool Company, and current Lloyd’s Lab participant – announces the release of a major advance in flood modeling with the release of the HazardHub Enhanced Flood Model and the HazardHub Catastrophic Flood Model. Insurers, property specialists, and municipalities can now see what happens when catastrophic, soaking rains hit any part of the United States.

Dr. Brady Foust, Ph.D. and HazardHub’s Chief Scientist explains, “For the longest time, insurers, business owners and consumers have been vexed by one question – why is my supposedly safe property now underwater? Part of the reason is that current flood models are meant to strike a balance between obvious flood risk and the desire to build property – these models ignore the impact of climate-driven, sustained, catastrophic precipitation. The HazardHub Enhanced Flood Model and Catastrophic Flood Model address this gap in the market by combining an incredibly detailed hydrology database, 10-meter elevation, known precipitation patterns, and a complex database schema to deliver a picture of both excessive and catastrophic flood risk.”

Current models give a single answer based on “normal” precipitation. Their shortcomings are exposed when excessive and catastrophic precipitation is involved. HazardHub fills this hole in the market by providing customers with two scores. The first score – the HazardHub Enhanced Flood Model – adjusts scores based upon water body strength and NOAA’s model of Potential Maximum Precipitation (PMP). A second score – the HazardHub Catastrophic Flood Model – reflects precipitation levels that are roughly twice the PMP.

The precipitation-based flooding in Houston in 2017, as the result of Hurricane Harvey, the catastrophic flooding in Nashville in 2010, and the Midwest in 2019 are examples of such events.

In the Nashville and Houston catastrophic floods, roughly 53% of destroyed properties were in 100-year or 500-year FEMA flood zones. HazardHub’s Enhanced flood model identified 83% of those same properties being at risk, while the HazardHub Catastrophic Flood Model identified over 99% of those destroyed properties as being at risk.

Bob Frady, CEO of HazardHub adds, “Through our work with our internal and external mentors at Lloyd’s Lab, we’ve seen incredible, surprise losses from flooding events – losses that can devastate a book of business. We’ve also seen the emergence of a burgeoning private flood insurance market that needs to plan for what happens in worst-case scenarios. Unfortunately, the number of catastrophic events is projected to increase dramatically as a result of climate change, making these “unusual” events much more common. The HazardHub Enhanced Flood Model and Catastrophic Flood Model helps insurers, insureds, municipalities, and reinsurers plan for what happens when a precipitation deluge comes to town. It addresses an important – yet ignored – piece of the existing flood modeling world.”

The HazardHub Catastrophic Flood Model is available today via HazardHub’s lightning-fast API and is no additional charge for all existing API clients.
