Data based on single female driver age 40, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $500 deductibles, and Nevada minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, multi-vehicle, claim-free, homeowner, and safe-driver. Prices do not factor in specific location which can revise premiums greatly.
Should you buy full coverage?
The information below shows the comparison of Nissan Versa auto insurance costs when comparing full coverage to state minimum liability only. The rate quotes are based on no claims or driving violations, $500 deductibles, single male driver, and no discounts are taken into consideration.
Are you wasting money paying for full coverage?
There is no set rule to delete physical damage coverage, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is more than 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.
For example, let's assume your Nissan Versa settlement value is $9,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most you would get paid by your company is $8,000 after you pay the deductible. If you are currently paying more than $800 a year for full coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
There are a few cases where removing full coverage is not a good plan. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not consider dropping full coverage.
Protect more than your Nissan Versa
Even though it's not necessarily cheap to insure a Nissan in Henderson, buying car insurance is most likely required but also gives you several important benefits.
- Just about all states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry specific limits of liability protection in order to get the vehicle licensed. In Nevada these limits are 15/30/10 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you have a lien on your Versa, it's most likely the lender will require you to have insurance to guarantee loan repayment. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the lender may insure your Nissan at a much higher rate and force you to pay for it.
- Insurance safeguards both your Nissan Versa and your assets. It will also pay for hospital and medical expenses for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. Liability coverage will also pay for a defense attorney if you are sued as the result of your driving. If your Nissan gets damaged, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.
The benefits of buying car insurance more than cancel out the cost, especially for larger claims. But the average driver in Nevada is overpaying more than $830 a year so it's very important to do a rate comparison at least once a year to ensure rates are competitive.
Will you really save $388 on insurance?
Popular insurance providers such as 21st Century, Allstate and State Farm continually stream television, radio, and online ads. All the companies seem to make the promise that you'll save big just by switching your insurance policy to them. It sounds good, but how can they all charge lower premium rates? Here is the trick they use.
Most companies have specific characteristics for the type of insured that will most likely be profitable. A good example of a desirable risk might be over the age of 50, has few claims, and insures a new vehicle. A customer that meets those criteria will qualify for the lowest prices in Henderson and will probably save when they switch companies.
Insureds who don't meet those criteria may be required to pay a more expensive rate which translates to the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The trick is to say "drivers who switch" not "everybody who quotes" save that much. That's why insurance companies can confidently state the savings.
This emphasizes why drivers must do a price quote comparison at every renewal. It is just not possible to predict with any certainty which company will have the lowest Nissan Versa insurance in Henderson.
Score discounts on Henderson car insurance
Properly insuring your vehicles can get expensive, but there are discounts available to reduce the price significantly. A few discounts will be applied at quote time, but some discounts are required to be requested specifically prior to getting the savings.
- Seat Belts Save more than Lives - Drivers who require all vehicle occupants to buckle up could save 15% off the personal injury premium cost.
- Organization Discounts - Participating in specific professional or occupational memberships or organizations could trigger savings on your next car insurance statement.
- Air Bag Discount - Cars that have air bags or automatic seat belts can qualify for discounts up to 30%.
- Senior Citizens - Mature drivers can possibly qualify for a slight reduction on a Henderson auto insurance quote.
- Low Miles Discount - Low annual miles can earn lower car insurance rates due to less chance of an accident.
- Discounts for Cautious Drivers - Drivers who don't get into accidents may receive a discount up to 45% than less cautious drivers.
- Student Discounts - Getting good grades may save you up to 25%. You can use this discount normally up to age 25.
As is typical with insurance, some credits don't apply to your bottom line cost. The majority will only reduce specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. Just because you may think you can get free auto insurance, it's just not the way it works.
A few companies that may offer these money-saving discounts possibly include:

Car insurance coverage options for a Nissan Versa
Understanding the coverages of your car insurance policy can help you determine appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Coverage for medical payments
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for immediate expenses such as dental work, doctor visits, EMT expenses, rehabilitation expenses and prosthetic devices. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers you and your occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Uninsured and underinsured coverage
This coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle's damage.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits (15/30/10 in Nevada), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is very important. Most of the time these coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and theft. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability car insurance
Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to other's property or people that is your fault. It protects YOU against other people's claims. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 15/30/10 that translate to a $15,000 limit per person for injuries, $30,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $10,000. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage pays for things like structural damage, repair bills for other people's vehicles, loss of income, court costs and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it's cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford. Nevada state minimum liability requirements are 15/30/10 but it's recommended drivers buy more liability than the minimum.
This coverage pays for damage to your Versa resulting from a collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for claims such as backing into a parked car, rolling your car and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. It's also possible to increase the deductible on your Versa in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Affordable insurance is out there
The cheapest Nissan Versa insurance in Henderson is possible on the web and from local agencies, so get free Henderson auto insurance quotes from both of them to have the best chance of lowering rates. Some insurance companies do not provide rates over the internet and these smaller companies prefer to sell through independent insurance agents.
Insureds who switch companies do it for any number of reasons including unfair underwriting practices, high prices, poor customer service and policy cancellation. Regardless of your reason, finding a great new company is pretty easy and you might even save some money in the process.
As you prepare to switch companies, it's very important that you do not buy poor coverage just to save money. There are many occasions where an insured cut liability limits or collision coverage only to regret that the small savings ended up costing them much more. The ultimate goal is to purchase a proper amount of coverage at the best price, not the least amount of coverage.
