Insurance Premium Influencing Factors

Smart consumers have a good feel for some of the elements that play a part in calculating auto insurance rates. When you understand what determines premiums, this helps enable you to make changes that could help you find lower premium levels. Many different elements are used when you get a price on insurance. A few of the factors are predictable like your driving record, but some are more obscure such as your credit history or your commute time.

Shown below are some of the most rate-impacting factors used by insurance companies to determine premiums.

More performance means higher premiums - The performance level of the vehicle you drive makes a substantial difference in your premium level. The best insurance prices are usually found on smaller low performance passenger vehicles, but your final cost has many other factors.

The chart below uses these variables: married male driver age 20, full coverage with $500 deductibles, and no discounts or violations. It illustrates Lexus ES 350 car insurance rates compared to other models of vehicles that have a range of performance rating factors.

Get married and pay less - Your spouse may earn you lower rates on your policy. Marriage may mean you are more responsible and it's proven that married drivers tend to file fewer claims.

Traffic violations cost more than a fine - Attentive drivers get better rates compared to bad drivers. Just one chargeable violation may increase your cost by twenty percent. Drivers with multiple citations like DUI or willful reckless driving may find that they have to to complete a SR-22 with their state in order to legally drive.

The chart below demonstrates how speeding tickets and accidents can increase Lexus ES 350 yearly insurance costs for different age groups of insureds. The premiums are based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $250 deductibles, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Vehicles with better crash test results means better premiums - Vehicles with high crash test scores tend to be cheaper to insure. These vehicles have better occupant injury protection and any reduction in injury severity translates into savings for insurance companies and lower rates for you.

Policy add-ons may be wasting money - There are a ton of extra add-on coverages that you can buy on your auto insurance policy. Things like replacement cost coverage, accidental death, and extra life insurance coverage may be wasting your money. These may sound like a good investment when you first buy your policy, but if you've never needed them in the past get rid of them and save.

Insurance losses for a Lexus ES 350 - Companies use data from past claims in order to profitably underwrite each model. Models that the data shows to have higher prevalence or dollar amount of losses will have higher rates.

Insurance is not optional in Wisconsin

Despite the high cost, insuring your vehicle may be mandatory for several reasons.

  • Most states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means the state requires specific minimum amounts of liability coverage if you drive a 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.
  • If your vehicle has a loan, most lenders will force you to carry insurance to protect their interest in the vehicle. If you do not keep the policy in force, the lender may have to buy a policy to insure your Lexus for a much higher rate and require you to pay for it.
  • Insurance protects your vehicle and your assets. It also can pay for all forms of medical expenses for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. Liability insurance also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if you are sued as the result of an accident. If you have damage to your Lexus as the result of the weather or an accident, your policy will cover the repair costs.

The benefits of having insurance are without a doubt worth the cost, especially when you need to use it. Today the average American driver overpays as much as $700 annually so compare quotes from several companies at least once a year to help ensure money is not being wasted.

Get cheaper rates with discounts

Some companies do not list their entire list of discounts in an easy-to-find place, so the next list breaks down some of the best known and also the lesser-known credits available to bring down your rates.Cheaper auto insurance with discounts

  • Onboard Data Collection - Insureds that choose to allow their company to monitor vehicle usage by using a telematics device in their vehicle like Drivewise from Allstate or In-Drive from State Farm may see discounts if they exhibit good driving behavior.

Consumers should know that some credits don't apply to the entire cost. Most only reduce individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. So when it seems like adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies wouldn't make money that way.
