Data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, homeowner, multi-vehicle, safe-driver, and multi-policy. Estimates do not factor in garaging location in Arlington which can decrease or increase premiums considerably.

Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $100 deductible costs about $27 more each month or $324 every year than opting for the higher $500 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $400 more if you file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you go at least 15 months between claims, you would save money if you elect the higher deductible. Here's a better example of how this calculation is made.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $123
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $96
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $27
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $100): $400
Divide difference by monthly savings: $400 / $27
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 15 months

An important sidenote is that a higher deductible means you pay more out-of-pocket when you do file a claim. That will require some non-essential savings in the event you have to pay the higher deductible.

Rate increases following a ticket or accident

The illustration below demonstrates how speeding tickets and at-fault fender-benders can drive up Toyota 4Runner insurance premiums for different categories of driver ages. The premium estimates are based on a married male driver, full physical damage coverage, $250 deductibles, and no other discounts are factored in.

Should you buy full coverage?

The example below visualizes the comparison of Toyota 4Runner premium costs with full coverage compared to only the Texas minimum liability coverage. The information is based on no tickets, no at-fault accidents, $100 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

When to drop comprehensive and collision

There is no set guideline of when to drop physical damage insurance, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than 10% of the vehicle's replacement cost less your deductible, then you might consider buying liability only.

For example, let's assume your Toyota 4Runner settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would receive is $7,000 after you pay the deductible. If you are paying over $700 a year to have full coverage, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

There are some scenarios where eliminating full coverage is not a good plan. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to prevent the bank from purchasing higher-priced coverage. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should not opt for liability only.

Car insurance agencies are considered either exclusive agents or independent agents. Either type can sell car insurance policies, but it's important to point out the difference between them because it can impact which type of agent you select.

Exclusive Agents

Agents in the exclusive channel have only one company to place business with like Farmers Insurance, American Family, State Farm and Allstate.
