Rate quotes are comparative as the specific garaging location can affect rates considerably.
The illustration below shows how choosing a deductible can impact premium costs when searching for cheap insurance for a company car. The premium estimates are based on a married male driver, comp and collision included, and no policy discounts are applied.
A 50-year-old driver could lower rates by $160 a year by changing their physical damage coverage from a $100 deductible up to a $500 deductible, or save $242 by using a $1,000 deductible. Even younger drivers, like the 20-year-old category, could reduce their rates $536 or more by selecting a higher deductible.
If you do make the decision to raise your deductibles, it is a good idea to have enough in a savings account to enable you to pay the extra out-of-pocket expense, which is the main disadvantage of using high deductibles.

How much more does full coverage cost?
Buying cheaper insurance should be important to the majority of people, and one of the easiest ways to pay less for insurance for a company car is to only buy liability insurance. The example below visualizes the comparison of insurance prices when comparing full coverage to liability only. The data is based on a clean driving record, no claims, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no policy discounts are applied.
As an average, comp and collision coverage costs $974 per year over liability only. That proposes the question if you should buy full coverage at all. There is no clear-cut rule to drop comp and collision coverage, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some conditions where buying only liability insurance is not a good idea. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you have to maintain full coverage to satisfy the loan requirements. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not buy liability only.
