Cost estimates assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Nebraska minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-policy, safe-driver, homeowner, and multi-vehicle. Table data does not factor in your specific Lincoln location which can alter premium rates substantially.

Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $250 deductible will cost you approximately $19 more each month or $228 a year than requesting the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would pay $750 more out-of-pocket with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to average at a minimum 39 months between claims, you would save money if you elect the higher deductible.

The diagram below demonstrates how deductibles and can impact Honda CR-V annual premium costs for different age groups of insureds. The premiums assume a married male driver, full coverage, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Car insurance premiums based on gender

The example below illustrates the comparison of Honda CR-V insurance premiums for male and female drivers. The premiums assume a clean driving record, no claims, full physical damage coverage, $1,000 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are applied.

Full coverage versus liability-only

The chart below visualizes the comparison of Honda CR-V insurance prices when comparing full coverage to state minimum liability only. The data assumes no accidents or driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, single status, and no other discounts are factored in.

Should you be buying full coverage?

There isn't a written rule that is best for determining when to drop full coverage, but there is a guideline you can use. If the annual cost of coverage is more than around 10% of the vehicle's replacement cost less your deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's pretend your Honda CR-V book value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most your company would pay you is $6,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are currently paying more than $600 annually for physical damage coverage, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

There are some scenarios where buying only liability insurance is not recommended. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you have to maintain full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should not opt for liability only.

Companies don't always list every discount they offer in an easy-to-find place, so we break down both well-publicized and the more hidden discounts that may be available. If you don't get every credit available, you could be getting lower rates.Save money with discounts

  • Auto/Life Discount - Insurance companies who offer life insurance give a break if you buy some life insurance in addition to your auto policy.
  • Buy New and Save - Adding a new car to your policy can save you some money because newer vehicles are generally safer.
  • Senior Citizen Discount - Mature drivers may qualify for better auto insurance rates.
  • Early Switch Discount - Select companies give a discount for switching to them before your current CR-V insurance policy expires. You could save around 10% when you buy Lincoln car insurance online.

  • Discount for Passive Restraints - Vehicles equipped with air bags or automatic seat belts may get savings up to 30%.

Auto insurance does more than just protect your car

Even though it can be expensive, paying for auto insurance may be required and benefits you in several ways.

  • Almost all states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means the state requires specific minimum amounts of liability in order to get the vehicle licensed. 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.
  • If you bought your CR-V with a loan, most lenders will make it mandatory that you have full coverage to protect their interest in the vehicle. If you default on your policy, the bank may buy a policy for your Honda for a lot more money and force you to pay for the expensive policy.
  • Auto insurance protects your Honda CR-V and your assets. It will also pay for medical bills incurred in an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay for a defense attorney if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If you have damage to your Honda as the result of the weather or an accident, comprehensive and/or collision insurance will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.

The benefits of carrying enough insurance are definitely more than the cost, specifically if you ever have a liability claim. According to a survey of 1,000 drivers, the average driver is overpaying over $810 a year so shop around every year to ensure rates are competitive.
