Table data represents married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Nebraska minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, multi-policy, claim-free, homeowner, and multi-vehicle. Estimates do not factor in specific zip code location which can raise or lower prices noticeably.

Based on the above data, using a $250 deductible costs about $21 more each month or $252 for a full year than choosing the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would have to pay $750 more out-of-pocket with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you go at least 36 months between claims, you would most likely save money if you opt for a higher deductible.

How to calculate if a higher deductible is a good decision

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $88
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): – $67
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $21
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 – $250): $750
Divide difference by monthly savings: $750 / $21
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 36 months

One big caveat is that a higher deductible level means you will have to pay more of your own money when you have to file a claim. You will want to have enough savings in order to pay more to get your vehicle repaired.

Many of these discounts will be applied automatically when you complete an application, but some discounts are required to be requested specifically before being credited. If you’re not getting every credit you deserve, it’s possible you qualify for a lower rate.Discount insurance

The diagram below illustrates the difference between Honda Element car insurance costs with and without discounts. The price estimates are based on a male driver, no violations or claims, Nebraska state minimum liability limits, comprehensive and collision coverage, and $100 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with marriage, safe-driver, multi-policy, multi-car, claim-free, and homeowner discounts applied.

Car insurance coverages for a Honda Element

Having a good grasp of insurance can help you determine appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are the usual coverages found on most insurance policies.

Comprehensive insurance

Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from getting keyed, a broken windshield and hitting a bird. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for things like funeral costs, pain medications, X-ray expenses and doctor visits. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Liability insurance

Liability coverage can cover damage that occurs to people or other property that is your fault. It protects you against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see values of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against things like funeral expenses, legal defense fees, bail bonds, attorney fees and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as large an amount as possible. Nebraska requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/25 but you should think about purchasing better liability coverage.

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

Collision insurance

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Element resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers things like crashing into a building, hitting a parking meter and rolling your car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible on your Element to bring the cost down.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Honda Element.

Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits (25/50/25 in Nebraska), their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liability limits.

Keep this in mind when shopping around

Affordable Honda Element insurance in Lincoln is attainable on the web and from local agencies, so you should compare both in order to have the best chance of saving money. A few companies may not provide rate quotes online and these smaller companies sell through independent agents.

As you restructure your insurance plan, never buy poor coverage just to save money. There are many occasions where an insured cut liability limits or collision coverage only to regret at claim time that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. The proper strategy is to buy enough coverage at the best price.
