Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, homeowner, safe-driver, multi-policy, and multi-vehicle. Prices do not factor in vehicle garaging location which can influence coverage rates noticeably.

We can derive from the above data that using a $250 deductible will cost you about $20 more each month or $240 every year across all Land Rover LR4 models than selecting the higher $500 deductible. Since you would have to pay $250 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to have more than 13 months between claims, you would save money if you decide on a higher deductible.

How to calculate if higher deductibles make sense

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $140
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): – $120
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $20
Difference between deductibles ($500 – $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $20
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 13 months

When to drop comprehensive and collision coverage

There is no exact rule to drop comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than around 10% of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then it might be time to buy liability only.

For example, let’s say your Land Rover LR4 book value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most your company would pay you is $6,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If premium cost is more than $600 annually for your policy with full coverage, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

There are some circumstances where removing full coverage is not a good plan. If you haven’t satisfied your loan, you have to keep full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you can’t afford to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not consider dropping full coverage.

Car insurance just makes sense

Despite the potentially high cost of Land Rover LR4 insurance, insurance is required for several reasons.

First, most states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means the state requires specific minimum amounts of liability protection in order to drive the car. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if your Land Rover LR4 has a lienholder, almost every bank will make it a condition of the loan that you buy full coverage to guarantee their interest in the vehicle. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your Land Rover at a more expensive rate and require you to fork over for the expensive policy.

Third, insurance protects both your Land Rover and your assets. Insurance will also pay for most medical and hospital costs for you, any passengers, and anyone injured in an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if you are named as a defendant in an auto accident. If mother nature or an accident damages your car, your car insurance policy will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.

The benefits of having insurance more than cancel out the cost, particularly if you ever have a claim. On average, a vehicle owner in Arlington is wasting up to $850 per year so it’s recommended you shop around once a year at a minimum to be sure current rates are still competitive.

Insurance coverage options for a Land Rover LR4

Having a good grasp of a insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are typical coverages found on most insurance policies.

Comprehensive coverages

Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, falling objects, hitting a deer and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Land Rover LR4.

Since many Texas drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (30/60/25), it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Auto collision coverage

Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for things such as colliding with a tree, driving through your garage door, colliding with another moving vehicle, damaging your car on a curb and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to raise the deductible on your LR4 in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Liability insurance

This provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show liability limits of 30/60/25 which means a $30,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage protects against things such as bail bonds, structural damage, pain and suffering, legal defense fees and loss of income. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but consider buying as much as you can afford. Texas requires minimum liability limits of 30/60/25 but drivers should carry higher limits.

The chart below demonstrates why buying the state minimum limits may not be enough coverage.

Coverage for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses for pain medications, X-ray expenses, chiropractic care and hospital visits. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
