Cost of full coverage
The illustration below illustrates the comparison of Jaguar XF car insurance rates with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The premiums assume no claims or driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, single male driver, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
When to buy liability coverage only
There is no clear-cut formula for phasing out full coverage on your policy, but there is a general school of thought. If the annual cost of having full coverage is 10% or more of replacement cost minus your deductible, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.
For example, let's say your Jaguar XF book value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most your company would pay you is $5,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are paying more than $500 annually for your policy with full coverage, then you might consider buying liability only.
There are some cases where removing full coverage is not financially feasible. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you are required to maintain full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should not consider dropping full coverage.
Get cheaper rates by taking advantage of these five discounts
Auto insurance companies don't always list every policy discount very well, so the following is a list of both the well known and also the more inconspicuous car insurance savings. If they aren't giving you every credit you deserve, you're paying more than you need to.
- No Accidents - Good drivers with no accidents can earn big discounts in comparison to accident-prone drivers.
- College Student - Older children who live away from home at college and leave their car at home may be insured at a cheaper rate.
- Passive Restraints - Vehicles with factory air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems could see savings of 20% or more.
- Anti-theft Discount - Vehicles that have factory alarm systems and tracking devices have a lower chance of being stolen and that can save you a little bit as well.
- Telematics Data - Drivers that enable driving data submission to track driving habits by using a telematics device like Drivewise from Allstate or In-Drive from State Farm might see lower rates as long as they are good drivers.
Policy discounts save money, but most credits do not apply to the entire policy premium. Some only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like comp or med pay. So when it seems like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, car insurance companies aren't that generous.

It's not one size fits all
When selecting proper insurance coverage for your vehicles, there really is not a single plan that fits everyone. Your situation is unique so your insurance needs to address that. Here are some questions about coverages that may help you determine whether or not you may require specific advice.

- Will I lose any money if I cancel my policy before it expires?
- Exactly who is provided coverage by my policy?
- What states are considered no-fault?
- Is there a penalty for late payment?
- Does my insurance cover a custom paint job?
- Does low annual mileage earn a discount?
- Do I need rental car coverage?
- Am I covered if I drive in a foreign country?

- Will a damage claim use OEM or aftermarket replacement parts?
- Do they have cheaper tiers of coverage?
- How often do they review coverages?
- Do the coverages you're quoting properly cover your vehicle?
- Is working in the agency their full-time job?
- Can you get a list of referrals?
- Does the agency have a current Errors and Omissions policy?
Once you have positive feedback and an affordable coverage quote, you have narrowed it down to an insurance agency that meets the requirements to properly service your insurance policy.
What car insurance coverages do you need?
Understanding the coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverage types found on most car insurance policies.
Liability - This coverage can cover damage that occurs to a person or their property. It protects you from claims by other people, and doesn't cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see values of 15/30/10 which stand for $15,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $10,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability insurance covers things such as medical expenses, funeral expenses, structural damage and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford. Nevada state law requires minimum liability limits of 15/30/10 but you should think about purchasing better liability coverage.
Comprehensive coverage - This pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as hitting a deer, rock chips in glass and theft. The maximum amount your car insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle's value is low it's not worth carrying full coverage.
Medical payments coverage and PIP - Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses like surgery, ambulance fees, doctor visits and EMT expenses. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage - This covers damage to your XF resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for claims like sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a building and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It's also possible to choose a higher deductible on your XF to bring the cost down.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage - Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Jaguar XF.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits (Nevada limits are 15/30/10), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Usually these coverages are set the same as your liability limits.
Find cheaper rates by being thorough
As you restructure your insurance plan, it's a bad idea to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In too many instances, an insured cut uninsured motorist or liability limits only to find out that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. Your objective should be to buy enough coverage for the lowest cost while not skimping on critical coverages.
