  1. Try to learn about what coverages are included in your policy and the things you can change to keep rates low.

Later in this article we will cover more details to get cheaper coverage and find more discounts that you may not know about.
  2. Get rate quotes from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Exclusive agents and direct companies can give quotes from one company like GEICO and Allstate, while agents who are independent can quote prices for a wide range of insurance providers.
  3. Compare the new rate quotes to your existing rates to determine if switching companies saves money. If you find a lower rate quote, ensure there is no coverage lapse between policies.
  4. Provide adequate notice to your current company of your decision to cancel your current policy and submit payment and a completed application to your new company or agent. Be sure to keep your new proof of insurance paperwork above your visor, in the console, or in the glove compartment.

One important bit of advice is to use the same level of coverage on each quote request and to quote with every insurance company. This helps ensure a level playing field and and a good selection of different prices.

Data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Wisconsin minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, homeowner, claim-free, multi-policy, and multi-vehicle. Price estimates do not factor in specific zip code location which can revise auto insurance rates noticeably.

Based on the figures above, using a $250 deductible will cost you about $28 more each month or $336 for a full year than buying the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would pay $750 more to settle a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you usually have at least 27 months between claims, you would probably save some money going with the higher deductible.

Calculate savings of higher deductibles

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $97
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $69
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $28

Jaguar XJ liability rates compared to full coverage

The chart below shows the comparison of Jaguar XJ car insurance rates with and without physical damage coverage. The premiums are based on no tickets, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are factored in.

When to switch to liability coverage only

There is no clear-cut formula for excluding physical damage insurance, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of full coverage is about 10% or more of replacement cost minus your deductible, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

For example, let's assume your Jaguar XJ replacement value is $4,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most your company would pay you is $3,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If premiums are more than $300 a year for physical damage coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

There are a few situations where eliminating full coverage is not recommended. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you are required to maintain full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should keep full coverage on your policy.

Buy Cheap Auto Insurance with These Tips

Lots of things are part of the calculation when you get your auto insurance bill. Some factors are common sense such as your driving history, although others are less obvious like where you live or how safe your car is. Smart consumers have a good feel for the rating factors that come into play when calculating your premiums. When consumers understand what influences your rates, this allows you to make educated decisions that can earn you lower premium levels.

  • Men drivers tend to cost more - Over the last 50 years, statistics have shown that men are more aggressive behind the wheel. However, don't assume that women are BETTER drivers than men. Females and males tend to get into auto accidents at a similar rate, but the male of the species get into accidents with more damage. Men also statistically get more serious tickets like reckless driving and DUI. Youthful male drivers tend to get in the most accidents and therefore are the most expensive to insure.

    The chart below compares Jaguar XJ auto insurance rates for male and female drivers. The rates are based on no accidents or driving violations, full coverage, $500 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are applied.

  • Long commutes cost more - Driving more miles each year the more you will pay for auto insurance. Most companies apply a rate based on how the vehicle is used. Cars that do not get driven very much can be on a lower rate level than those used for commuting. It's always a good idea to double check that your policy correctly shows the proper vehicle usage, because it can save money. An improperly rated XJ may be costing you.
  • Safer vehicles cost less to insure - Vehicles with high crash test scores can get you lower premiums. Safer cars reduce the chance of injuries and fewer serious injuries means less money paid by your insurance company and cheaper rates on your policy. If the Jaguar XJ is rated at least four stars on Safercar.gov or an "acceptable" rating on iihs.org you may be receiving a better rate.
  • More than one policy can earn a discount - Lots of insurers will give better rates for people who have multiple policies with them, otherwise known as a multi-policy discount. This can amount to anywhere from five to ten percent in most cases. If you currently are using one company, it's still a good idea to comparison shop to verify if the discount is saving money.
  • Premiums drop with age - More experienced drivers are proven to be safer behind the wheel, are lower risk to insure, and are safer drivers. Drivers with little experience are proven to be inattentive and easily distracted when driving so auto insurance rates are higher.

    The following data uses these assumptions: single driver, full coverage with $250 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.

  • Never allow your auto insurance to lapse - Having a lapse in insurance coverage can be a quick way to pay more for auto insurance. In addition to paying higher premiums, getting caught without coverage can result in a revoked license or a big fine. You could then be forced to submit proof of financial responsibility or a SR-22 with the Wisconsin department of motor vehicles.
  • Alarms and GPS tracking lowers premiums - Selecting a car model with advanced anti-theft systems can help lower your premiums. Anti-theft devices such as tamper alarm systems, vehicle immobilizer technology and General Motors OnStar all aid in stopping auto theft.
  • Traffic violations cost more than a fine - Drivers with clean records tend to pay less for car insurance compared to bad drivers. Just one ticket may increase your cost to the point where it's not affordable. Drivers unfortunate enough to have serious citations like DWI, reckless driving or hit and run convictions might be required by their state to submit a SR-22 or proof of financial responsibility with their state motor vehicle department in order to prevent a license revocation.

    The example below demonstrates how speeding tickets and accidents impact Jaguar XJ auto insurance costs for each age group. The price estimates are based on a married male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $500 deductibles, and no policy discounts are applied.

  • Insurance loss probability for a Jaguar XJ - Insurers factor in historical loss data as a way to help calculate a profitable premium price. Vehicles that have higher claim frequency or loss amount will have a higher premium rate.

    The table below shows the actual insurance loss data for Jaguar XJ vehicles. For each policy coverage, the loss probability for all vehicles averaged together is represented as 100. Percentage numbers below 100 are indicative of better than average losses, while numbers that are greater than 100 point to more frequent losses or a tendency for claims to be larger.

Three reasons auto insurance is important

Even though it can be expensive, insuring your vehicle may be mandatory for several reasons.

First, almost all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means state laws require specific limits of liability insurance coverage in order to license the vehicle. In Wisconsin these limits are 25/50/10 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if your XJ has a loan, it's guaranteed your bank will require you to have physical damage coverage to ensure they get paid if you total the vehicle. If coverage lapses or is canceled, the bank may insure your Jaguar at a more expensive rate and force you to pay for the much more expensive policy.

Third, insurance safeguards your Jaguar and your assets. It will also provide coverage for most medical and hospital costs for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. Liability coverage, the one required by state law, will also pay to defend you if you are sued as the result of your driving. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, your policy will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.

The benefits of insuring your XJ are definitely more than the cost, particularly if you ever have a claim. But the average American driver is overpaying over $810 a year so you should quote and compare rates each time the policy renews to be sure current rates are still competitive.
