The premiums are based on a clean driving record, no at-fault accidents, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

When to drop full coverage

There isn't a steadfast formula to eliminate physical damage insurance, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than 10% of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then you might consider buying liability only.

For example, let's pretend your BMW X6 settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most you would get paid by your company is $7,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If it's costing you more than $700 a year for comprehensive and collision coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

There are some circumstances where buying only liability insurance is not a good plan. If you haven't paid off your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not buy liability only.

You Can Change Your Insurance Prices

When buying car insurance it's important to understand the different types of things that help calculate car insurance rates. If you have a feel for what impacts premium levels, this helps enable you to make changes that can earn you better car insurance rates.

The items below are just a few of the factors used by insurance companies to determine your prices.

  • Age of drivers - Mature drivers are proven to be safer behind the wheel, cost insurance companies less in claims, and usually have better credit. Beginning drivers have a tendency to get distracted easily in a vehicle and because of this, their car insurance rates are much higher.

    The data below is based on a single driver, full coverage with $500 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.

  • Being married can save you money - Being married may earn you lower rates on car insurance. It usually means you are more mature than a single person and it's statistically proven that married couples file fewer claims.

  • Bump up physical damage deductibles to lower rates - Protection for physical damage, commonly called comprehensive (or other-than-collision) and collision coverage, covers your vehicle from damage. Examples of covered claims are collision with another vehicle, hitting a deer, and burglary. Comprehensive and collision coverage deductibles state the amount of money the insured will be required to pay before a claim is paid by your company. The higher the amount you're willing to pay, the less money you will pay for car insurance.

If your credit score is lower than you'd like, you may save money insuring your BMW X6 by improving your credit score.
