Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Jersey minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-policy, safe-driver, multi-vehicle, and homeowner. Estimates do not factor in specific garaging location which can affect insurance rates greatly.

Using the data above, we can ascertain that using a $100 deductible will cost you roughly $57 more each month or $684 annually than selecting the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would have to pay $900 more to settle a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you normally average more than 16 months between claims, you would save more money going with the higher deductible. The numbers below show the way we made this calculation.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $175
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $118
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $57
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $57
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 16 months

One thing to be aware of is that raising deductibles to get cheaper rates results in more money out-of-pocket when you have a physical damage claim. That will necessitate enough disposable savings in the event you need to pay the higher deductible.

The example below demonstrates how deductibles and can change Volvo V50 insurance prices for each age group. The premiums assume a single male driver, full coverage, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Cost of full coverage

The illustration below shows the difference between Volvo V50 premium costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The costs are based on no claims, a clean driving record, $250 deductibles, single marital status, and no discounts are factored in.

Deciding between full coverage and liability only

There is no exact formula of when to exclude full coverage, but there is a general school of thought. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is more than around 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's assume your Volvo V50 replacement value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most your company will settle for is $5,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are currently paying more than $500 annually for comprehensive and collision coverage, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

There are some cases where eliminating full coverage is not a good idea. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to maintain full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should keep full coverage in place.

These discounts can cut Volvo V50 insurance rates

The price of auto insurance can be rather high, but you can get discounts that many consumers don't even know exist. Certain credits will be shown at the time of quoting, but lesser-known reductions have to be specifically requested prior to getting the savings.

  • Federal Employees - Active or retired federal employment may reduce rates when you quote Newark car insurance with select insurance companies.
  • Active Service Discounts - Having a family member in the military may qualify for rate reductions.
  • Air Bags and Passive Restraints - Vehicles with factory air bags could see savings of 20 to 30 percent.
  • Defensive Driver Discounts - Taking part in a driver safety course could cut 5% off your bill and also improve your driving technique.
  • Theft Deterrent - Vehicles equipped with tracking devices and advanced anti-theft systems prevent vehicle theft and will qualify for a discount on a Newark car insurance quote.
  • Discount for Life Insurance - Insurance companies who offer life insurance give a discount if you purchase auto and life insurance together.
  • Claim-Free Discount - Drivers who don't have accidents can save substantially when compared with accident-prone drivers.
  • Organization Discounts - Being a member of a qualifying organization can get you a small discount on your bill.
  • ABS and Traction Control Discounts - Cars, trucks, and SUVs with ABS and/or traction control can reduce accidents and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.

Please keep in mind that some credits don't apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as medical payments or collision. So when it seems like it's possible to get free car insurance, nobody gets a free ride.

Types of auto insurance agents

If you are searching for a local Newark insurance agency, you should know the types of insurance agents and how they operate. Auto insurance agencies can be described as either independent (non-exclusive) or exclusive. Both types can write policy coverage, but we need to point out the difference in how they write coverage since it may influence the selection process.

Exclusive Agents

These type of agents can only write with one company like AAA, Allstate, and State Farm. Exclusive agents are unable to shop your coverage around so they have to upsell other benefits. They are usually quite knowledgeable on what they offer which helps them compete with independent agents. Consumers often use the same agent mainly due to the brand legacy rather than low price.

How to find lower priced Volvo V50 insurance in Newark

  • Step 1: Try to learn a little about the coverage provided by your policy and the changes you can make to keep rates down. Many risk factors that cause rate increases like speeding tickets, careless driving and an unacceptable credit score can be controlled by improving your driving habits or financial responsibility.
  • Step 2: Request rate estimates from independent agents, exclusive agents, and direct companies. Direct companies and exclusive agencies can only quote rates from a single company like GEICO or State Farm, while agents who are independent can provide rate quotes from multiple insurance companies.
  • Step 3: Compare the new rate quotes to your current policy premium to see if a cheaper price is available in Newark. If you find a lower rate quote and decide to switch, make sure there is no lapse between the expiration of your current policy and the new one.

A good tip to remember is to make sure you enter similar limits and deductibles on each quote and and to get rate quotes from every company you can. This enables a level playing field and the most accurate and complete price analysis.
