Cost difference between full coverage and liability
Saving on insurance should be important to most drivers, and one easy way to buy cheap insurance for drivers with good credit is to buy liability only. The chart below illustrates the comparison of car insurance costs with full physical damage coverage and with liability coverage only. The costs are based on no violations or accidents, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no other discounts are factored in.
On average, physical damage coverage costs an extra $1,297 per year more than insuring for liability only. That amount may make you wonder if buying full coverage is worth the money. There is no set rule to eliminate full coverage, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is more than 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it’s probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.
Careless driving habits raise Las Vegas insurance rates
The ideal way to find the most affordable insurance prices in Nevada for financially responsible drivers is to be a cautious driver and avoid accidents and traffic violations. The illustration below illustrates how speeding tickets and at-fault claims impact premium costs for different age groups. The premiums assume a married female driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $500 deductibles, and no discounts are factored in.
In the previous chart, the average cost of auto insurance per year with no accidents and a clean driving record is $1,515. Get one speeding ticket and the average cost increases to $1,765, an increase of $250 each year. Then add in one accident along with the one speeding ticket and the 12-month cost of insurance for drivers with good credit jumps again to an average of $2,467. That’s an increase of $952, or $79 per month, just for not driving responsibly!
Here’s why you should shop around
Nevada insurance rates are determined by lots of factors which can significantly increase or decrease the policy premium. Simply having a birthday, having a claim, or getting a few speeding tickets may prompt premium changes that can cause some rates to be more affordable than before. Not only may your situation change, but insurers amend premium rates without warning to adjust for gains or losses. Heavier than normal losses may result in rate hikes, while profitable underwriting can cause lower-priced Las Vegas car insurance rates.
