The example below illustrates the difference between Toyota Highlander insurance premiums with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The rate quotes are based on no tickets, no at-fault accidents, $100 deductibles, drivers are single, and no other discounts are factored in.
When to stop paying for full coverage
There is no exact formula to eliminate full coverage, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than around 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let's pretend your Toyota Highlander settlement value is $5,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company will settle for is $4,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If it's costing you more than $400 a year for full coverage, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.
There are some cases where buying only liability insurance is not a good plan. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you have to maintain full coverage in order to prevent the bank from purchasing higher-priced coverage. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not buy liability only.
