Premium data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and North Carolina minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, homeowner, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and claim-free. Rates do not factor in specific garaging location which can lower or raise coverage prices greatly.

Using the data above, we can ascertain that using a $100 deductible costs approximately $20 more each month or $240 every year than choosing the higher $500 deductible. Since you would pay $400 more to file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you go more than 20 months between claims, you would most likely save money by going with a higher deductible.

Full coverage or liability only

The information below illustrates the comparison of Volvo XC90 auto insurance costs with liability coverage only compared to full coverage. The rates are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $1,000 deductibles, single marital status, and no other discounts are factored in.

When to drop comprehensive and collision coverage

There is no set guideline of when to exclude comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than 10% of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let’s pretend your Volvo XC90 claim settlement value is $3,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, you would only receive $2,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying more than $200 a year for full coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

There are some circumstances where buying only liability insurance is not advised. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you must maintain physical damage coverage to protect the lienholder’s interest. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not remove full coverage.

Car insurance does more than just protect your car

Even though Durham XC90 insurance rates can get expensive, car insurance may be required and benefits you in several ways.

The benefits of buying enough insurance definitely exceed the cost, especially with large liability claims. But the average driver in North Carolina is currently overpaying as much as $865 each year so compare rates each time the policy renews to ensure rates are inline.

Auto insurance 101

Having a good grasp of auto insurance aids in choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.

Medical expense coverage

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses for nursing services, chiropractic care, prosthetic devices and funeral costs. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Volvo XC90.

Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (30/60/25 in North Carolina), their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Liability coverages

Liability insurance can cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 30/60/25 that translate to a limit of $30,000 per injured person, $60,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.

Liability insurance covers claims like medical expenses, loss of income, medical services and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but you should buy higher limits if possible. North Carolina requires minimum liability limits of 30/60/25 but drivers should carry more coverage.

The next chart shows why buying minimum limits may not provide you with enough coverage.

Comprehensive protection

This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as falling objects, hitting a bird, rock chips in glass, theft and hail damage. The maximum payout a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Auto collision coverage

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for things like hitting a parking meter, sustaining damage from a pot hole, damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible on your XC90 to bring the cost down.
