The best way we recommend to find cheaper prices for Hyundai Veracruz insurance is to start comparing prices regularly from insurance carriers in Lincoln. Prices can be compared by following these steps.
First, get a basic knowledge of how your policy works and the changes you can make to prevent expensive coverage. Many rating factors that result in higher rates such as high-risk driving behaviors and an unfavorable credit rating can be remedied by making minor changes to your lifestyle.
Second, compare prices from exclusive agents, independent agents, and direct providers. Direct companies and exclusive agencies can only give rate quotes from a single company like Progressive or Allstate, while independent agents can quote prices from many different companies.
Third, compare the quotes to your existing coverage to see if you can save by switching companies. If you find a lower rate and switch companies, make sure there is no lapse between the expiration of your current policy and the new one.
Fourth, provide proper notification to your current company of your decision to cancel your current coverage. Submit any necessary down payment along with the completed application for the new coverage. Immediately keep the new certificate verifying coverage with your vehicle’s registration.
One bit of advice is to make sure you’re comparing the same level of coverage on each quote and to quote with as many companies as you can. Doing this guarantees a fair rate comparison and the best price selection.
Unbelievable but true, nearly 70% of Nebraska drivers kept their policy with the same company for well over three years, and roughly 40% of drivers have never taken the time to shop around. American drivers can cut their rates by 47% a year just by getting comparison quotes, but they just don’t understand how easy it is to go online and compare rates.

Cost difference between full coverage and liability
The example below compares Hyundai Veracruz auto insurance rates with and without physical damage coverage, medical payments, and uninsured/under-insured motorist coverage. The rate quotes are based on no claims or violations, $100 deductibles, single marital status, and no discounts are factored in.
When to stop buying physical damage coverage
There is no definitive formula of when to drop full coverage, 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 replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you might consider buying liability only.
For example, let’s assume your Hyundai Veracruz book value is $4,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most you would get paid by your company is $3,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying in excess of $300 a year for full coverage, then it’s probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.
There are some cases where buying only liability insurance is not a good idea. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not consider dropping full coverage.
It may be expensive, but it’s not optional
Even though it can be expensive, paying for car insurance is most likely required but also gives you several important benefits.
First, most states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means you are required to carry specific limits of liability in order to drive the car legally. In Nebraska these limits are 25/50/25 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
Second, if your Veracruz has a lienholder, most lenders will make it a condition of the loan that you have full coverage to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If the policy lapses, the bank may insure your Hyundai at a much higher premium rate and require you to pay the higher price.
Third, insurance protects your Hyundai and your assets. Insurance will also pay for medical bills for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. One policy coverage, liability insurance, also pays expenses related to your legal defense if you are named as a defendant in an auto accident. If you have damage to your Hyundai as the result of the weather or an accident, your car insurance policy will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.
The benefits of buying car insurance more than cancel out the cost, specifically if you ever have a liability claim. But the average driver in Nebraska is wasting up to $825 a year so compare quotes from several companies at least once a year to ensure rates are inline.
Save with these eight discounts on Hyundai Veracruz insurance in Lincoln
The cost of insuring your cars can be expensive, but companies offer discounts to help bring down the price. Some discounts will apply when you purchase, but some need to be specially asked for before they will apply.
- Early Renewal Discounts – A few larger companies offer discounts for buying a policy before your current expiration date. This can save 10% or more.
- Paperless Signup – Some of the larger companies may give you up to $50 for buying a policy and signing up online.
- Discount for Life Insurance – If the company offers life insurance, you could get better premium rates if you take out some life insurance too.
- Full Payment Discount – If paying your policy premium upfront rather than spreading payments over time you can avoid monthly service charges.
- Anti-lock Brakes – Cars, trucks, and SUVs with anti-lock braking systems are safer to drive and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
- Driver Education Discount – Teen drivers should enroll and complete driver’s education as it can save substantially.
- Student Discounts – A discount for being a good student can save 20 to 25%. The discount lasts up until you turn 25.
- Drive Less and Save – Fewer annual miles on your Hyundai could be rewarded with lower premium rates due to less chance of an accident.
One thing to note about discounts is that most of the big mark downs will not be given to the entire policy premium. The majority will only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as medical payments or collision. So even though they make it sound like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, nobody gets a free ride.
The chart below compares Hyundai Veracruz premium costs with and without policy discounts. The rates are based on a female driver, a clean driving record, no at-fault accidents, 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 multi-car, homeowner, claim-free, multi-policy, marriage, and safe-driver discounts applied.

Will just any policy work for me?
Always remember that when buying adequate coverage, there really is not a best way to insure your cars. Everyone’s situation is unique.
For example, these questions might point out if your insurance needs could use an agent’s help.
- Who is covered by my policy?
- Does my Hyundai Veracruz qualify for pleasure use?
- What can I do if my company won’t pay a claim?
- Will my Hyundai Veracruz be repaired with OEM or aftermarket parts?
- Is there a penalty for late payment?
- Do I have newly-acquired coverage?
- I don’t drive much so do I pay less?
If it’s difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, fill out this quick form. It only takes a few minutes and can provide invaluable advice.
You may want advice from a local insurance agent
Certain consumers prefer to sit down with an agent and that is recommended in a lot of cases Agents are highly skilled in risk management and help in the event of a claim. One of the benefits of comparing insurance prices online is that you can find lower premium rates and also buy local.

Compare rates from both independent and exclusive car insurance agents
If you are searching for an insurance agent, there are a couple of types of agencies and how they can write your policy. Agents can be categorized as either independent agents or exclusive agents depending on their employer. Either can handle auto insurance, but we need to point out the difference between them because it can factor into which type of agent you select.
Independent Insurance Agents
Independent agents do not write with just one company and that gives them the ability to insure with any number of different companies and get the cheapest rates. If premiums increase, they simply move your policy to a different company and you don’t have to do anything.
If you are trying to find cheaper rates, you absolutely need to get several quotes from several independent agencies for the best price selection.
The following is a list of independent insurance agencies in Lincoln who may provide price quote information.
Exclusive agencies work for only one company like Allstate, State Farm and Farm Bureau. These agents are unable to shop your coverage around so they have no alternatives for high prices. They are trained well on sales techniques and that can be a competitive advantage.
The following are exclusive insurance agencies in Lincoln who can help you get price quotes.
Picking a car insurance agent should depend on more than just a cheap price quote. Here are some questions to ask:
- Are glass claims handled on-site or do you have to take your vehicle to a repair shop?
- Can you get a list of referrals?
- Which family members are covered?
- What is the financial rating for the quoted company?
- Will the company cover a rental car if your car is getting fixed?
- How long has the business existed?
- What insurance company do they write the most business with?
- Are they paid to recommend certain coverages?
Parts of your insurance policy
Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages for your vehicles. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Comprehensive auto coverage
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as damage from flooding, fire damage, a broken windshield, hitting a bird and hitting a deer. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Hyundai Veracruz.
Since many Nebraska drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (25/50/25), it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time these coverages are set the same as your liability limits.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses for chiropractic care, prosthetic devices, rehabilitation expenses and X-ray expenses. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Auto liability insurance
This provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property in an accident. Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 which stand for a limit of $25,000 per injured person, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is a combined limit which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage pays for things like funeral expenses, medical services and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford. Nebraska state minimum liability requirements are 25/50/25 but you should consider buying better liability coverage.
The chart below shows why minimum state limits may not be adequate coverage.
Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims like rolling your car, sideswiping another vehicle and damaging your car on a curb. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. You can also raise the deductible on your Veracruz in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Affordable coverage is out there
Cost effective Hyundai Veracruz insurance can be sourced from both online companies and from local insurance agents, so you need to shop Lincoln auto insurance with both in order to have the best chance of saving money. There are still a few companies who may not provide the ability to get quotes online and many times these smaller companies only sell through local independent agencies.
Insureds change insurance companies for a number of reasons such as extreme rates for teen drivers, high prices, lack of trust in their agent and even poor customer service. No matter why you want to switch, switching auto insurance companies can be easier than you think.
As you shop your coverage around, it’s not a good idea to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. Too many times, consumers will sacrifice liability limits or collision coverage only to find out that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. Your goal should be to find the BEST coverage at the best price.
