Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Jersey minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, claim-free, multi-policy, safe-driver, and multi-vehicle. Rate information does not factor in specific location which can raise or lower auto insurance rates greatly.

Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $250 deductible will cost you approximately $37 more each month or $444 every year than buying the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would pay $750 more to settle a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to have at a minimum 20 months between claims, you would probably come out ahead by going with a higher deductible.

The chart below shows how choosing a deductible and can raise or lower Volkswagen Jetta insurance costs for each different age group. The costs are based on a married male driver, full coverage, and no policy discounts are applied.

Difference between liability only and full coverage rates

The illustration below illustrates the difference between Volkswagen Jetta yearly insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in New Jersey. The rate quotes are based on no violations or accidents, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are applied.

Should you be buying full coverage?

There is no specific rule that is best for determining when to drop physical damage coverage, but there is a guideline you can use. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than about 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

For example, let's pretend your Volkswagen Jetta settlement value is $3,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, you would only receive $2,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are paying over $200 annually for physical damage coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

There are a few situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not recommended. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to maintain full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should not drop full coverage.

Six Tips to Get More Affordable Newark Insurance Premiums

Lots of factors are taken into consideration when you get a price on insurance. Most are fairly basic such as your driving record, but other factors are not as apparent such as your marital status or how safe your car is. Smart consumers have a good feel for some of the things that help determine your policy premiums. When you understand what determines base rates, this allows you to make educated decisions that could result in lower rates.

  • Expect high rates for teens - Youthful drivers in New Jersey are proven to be inattentive and easily distracted in a vehicle so they pay higher auto insurance rates. Having to add a first-time driver to your policy can cause a big jump in price. Mature drivers are more responsible, cause fewer claims and accidents, and get fewer tickets.

    The data below is based on a single driver, full coverage with $250 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.

  • Liability coverage - The liability coverage on your policy will protect you when you are found liable for an accident. Liability insurance provides for a legal defense starting from day one. Liability insurance is pretty cheap compared to comp and collision, so do not skimp.
  • Do women or men drive better? - Over time, data shows that females take fewer risks when driving. However, don't assume that women are BETTER drivers than men. They both have fender benders at a similar rate, but guys have accidents that have higher claims. Men also statistically get ticketed for serious violations such as reckless driving. Male drivers age 16 to 19 generally have the highest accident percentage and therefore pay the highest rates.

    The chart below shows the difference between Volkswagen Jetta insurance premiums for male and female drivers. The premiums assume no claims or driving citations, full physical damage coverage, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

  • Where you call home plays a part - Living in a rural area may provide you with better prices when trying to find low car insurance rates. Drivers in populated areas have more aggressive driving styles and a longer drive to work. Fewer drivers and short commutes corresponds to lower accident rates and also fewer theft and vandalism claims.
  • Getting married brings a discount - Walking down the aisle helps lower the price when shopping for auto insurance. Having a spouse demonstrates that you tend to be more mature and responsible and it's statistically proven that married drivers tend to file fewer claims.
  • Do you know you're credit score? - Having a bad credit history will be a significant factor in determining what you pay for auto insurance. Therefore, if your credit could use some work, you could be paying less to insure your Volkswagen Jetta if you clean up your credit. Drivers with good credit tend to be less risk to insure as compared to drivers with lower credit scores.
  • Insurance loss data for Volkswagen Jetta vehicles - Companies factor in insurance loss information to help set a rate to offset losses. Vehicles that the data determines to have higher claim amounts or frequency will have a higher premium rate. The next table illustrates the insurance loss data used by companies for Volkswagen Jetta vehicles.

    For each insurance policy coverage type, the statistical loss for all vehicles compiled together is a value of 100. Values that are below 100 suggest losses that are better than average, while values over 100 indicate higher probability of having a loss or statistically larger losses.

Insurance is not optional in New Jersey

Even though it can be expensive, buying insurance may be required for several reasons.

First, almost all states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means state laws require a minimum amount of liability protection in order to get the vehicle licensed. In New Jersey these limits are 15/30/5 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if your car has a loan, almost all lenders will stipulate that you have insurance to guarantee loan repayment. If you default on your policy, the bank may buy a policy for your Volkswagen at a much higher premium rate and require you to reimburse them for the much more expensive policy.

Third, insurance protects your Volkswagen Jetta and your assets. Insurance will pay for medical expenses for you, any passengers, and anyone injured in an accident. As part of your policy, liability insurance also covers legal expenses if someone files suit against you as the result of an accident. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, comprehensive and/or collision insurance will cover the repair costs.

The benefits of buying enough insurance greatly outweigh the cost, especially with large liability claims. According to a recent study, the average American driver is overpaying more than $750 every year so it's important to compare rates every year to be sure current rates are still competitive.
