What influences car insurance premiums?

Car insurance premiums paid to insure a 2006 can be significantly different subject to many criteria. Taken into consideration are:

  • Traffic citations increase rates
  • Better credit means lower rates
  • Male rates may be higher
  • Higher deductibles save money
  • Your vehicle's safety rating
  • Your occupation
  • The level of coverage
  • Whether you rent or own your home

An additional factor that will help determine is the year of the vehicle. Older cars and trucks have a reduced actual cash value than newer models so the costs to repair can decrease annual premiums. Conversely, newer vehicles may have safety features such as tire pressure monitors, sideview assist mirrors, lane departure warning system, and adaptive cruise control that may help provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability coverages - 2006 liability coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property by causing an accident. Liability coverage protects against things such as emergency aid, pain and suffering, and medical services. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision coverage - Collision coverage covers damage to your from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverages - This will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage - This gives you protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Coverage for medical payments - Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses such as doctor visits, EMT expenses, and X-ray expenses. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
