Rate difference between full and liability-only coverage

Finding the cheapest insurance is the goal of most vehicle owners, and a great way to save on the cost of insurance for nurses is to not pay for full coverage. The information below visualizes the comparison of insurance rates with and without full coverage. The data assumes no tickets, no at-fault accidents, $100 deductibles, single marital status, and no discounts are applied.

If averaged out across all ages, physical damage coverage costs an additional $1,308 per year over and above liability coverage. At some point, about every driver wonders if it's a good idea to buy full coverage. There is no exact formula that is best for determining when to drop full coverage, but there is a general guideline. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

For example, let's assume your vehicle's settlement value is $10,500 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company would pay you is $9,500 after the deductible is paid. If you are paying over $950 a year to have full coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

There are some scenarios where dropping physical damage coverage is not in your best interest. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should maintain full coverage.
