  1. Try to learn a little about how insurance companies determine prices and the steps you can take to keep rates in check. Many rating factors that are responsible for high rates such as traffic violations and an unfavorable credit rating can be eliminated by paying attention to minor details.
  2. Request price quotes from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive agents and direct companies can give quotes from one company like Progressive or State Farm, while independent agents can give you price quotes for a wide range of insurance providers.
  3. Compare the new quotes to your existing coverage and determine if cheaper Accord coverage is available in Toledo. If you find a lower rate quote and make a switch, make sure coverage is continuous and does not lapse.

A good tip to remember is to make sure you enter similar limits and deductibles on every quote request and and to get price quotes from as many companies as you can. This enables the most accurate price comparison and a thorough selection of prices.

Save with these discounts

Insuring your fleet can be pricey, but there may be some discounts to help offset the cost. A few discounts will automatically apply at the time of quoting, but less common discounts must be asked about prior to receiving the credit. If you're not getting every credit you qualify for, you could be saving more on your auto insurance.Discount auto insurance

  • Theft Deterrent - Anti-theft and alarm system equipped vehicles help deter theft so companies will give you a small discount.
  • Driver's Education for Students - Reduce the cost of insurance for teen drivers by having them participate in a local driver's education class if it's offered in school.
  • Air Bags and Passive Restraints - Vehicles with factory air bags or motorized seat belts may earn rate discounts of 25 to 30%.
  • Pay Early and Save - If you can afford to pay the entire bill instead of monthly or quarterly installments you may reduce your total bill.
  • First Accident Forgiveness - This isn't a discount exactly, but some insurance companies will let one accident slide before hitting you with a surcharge with the catch being you have to be claim-free prior to the accident.
  • Sign Early and Save - Select companies give a discount for buying a policy prior to your current Accord insurance policy expiration. Ten percent is about the average savings.
  • Telematics Data Discounts - Drivers who elect to allow companies to scrutinize vehicle usage through the use of a telematics system such as State Farm's In-Drive might see lower rates if they are good drivers.
  • Lower Rates for Military - Being deployed in the military could trigger a small discount.
  • Safety Course Discount - Passing a course teaching driver safety skills may get you a small discount depending on where you live.

As is typical with insurance, some of the credits will not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like comprehensive or collision. So even though they make it sound like you can get free auto insurance, companies wouldn't make money that way.

Prices above based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Ohio minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, safe-driver, homeowner, multi-policy, and claim-free. Table data does not factor in vehicle location which can affect auto insurance rates noticeably.

Based on the figures above, using a $100 deductible costs roughly $16 more each month or $192 for a full year averaged for all Accord models than selecting the higher $500 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $400 more to file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to have at a minimum 25 months between claims, you would save money if you choose the higher deductible.

Full coverage rates vs. liability-only

The illustration below illustrates the comparison of Honda Accord auto insurance rates with and without physical damage coverage. The price estimates are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $250 deductibles, single marital status, and no additional discounts are factored in.

When to stop buying comprehensive and collision coverage

There is no set guideline to eliminate full coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is about 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

For example, let's say your Honda Accord book value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company would pay you is $5,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If premiums are more than $500 a year for comprehensive and collision coverage, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.

There are a few cases where dropping full coverage is not recommended. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage to satisfy the loan requirements. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should keep full coverage in place.

Honda Accord Insurance Premium Factors

Consumers need to have an understanding of the rating factors that help calculate insurance rates. If you have some idea of what impacts premium levels, this allows you to make educated decisions that may result in cheaper rates.

  • Gender and auto insurance - Statistics have proven women tend to be less risk to insure than men. However, don't assume that men are worse drivers. Women and men are responsible for at-fault accidents at a similar rate, but males cause more damage and cost insurance companies more money. Men also statistically receive more costly citations like driving under the influence (DUI). Young males tend to get in the most accidents and are penalized with high insurance rates.

    The illustration below visualizes the comparison of Honda Accord insurance costs for male and female drivers. The costs are based on a clean driving record, no at-fault accidents, full physical damage coverage, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

  • Incidental coverages can cost a lot - There are many extra coverages that can add up but may not be useful. Coverages for rental car coverage, towing, and additional equipment coverage are some examples. These coverages may sound good when deciding what coverages you need, but now you might not need them so think about removing them and cutting costs.
  • What are good liability limits? - Liability coverage will afford coverage if ever you are ruled to be at fault for causing personal injury or damage in an accident. It provides legal defense coverage up to the limits shown on your policy. This coverage is relatively inexpensive when compared with rates for comp and collision, so insureds should have plenty of protection for their assets.
  • Deter theft and pay less - Purchasing a vehicle with advanced anti-theft systems can help lower your rates. Theft prevention features such as GM's OnStar, tamper alarm systems and vehicle immobilizers help track and prevent car theft.
  • More traffic equals higher rates - Living in less populated areas of the country can save you money when shopping for auto insurance. Lower population means a lower chance of having an accident in addition to fewer liability claims. Residents of big cities have more traffic problems and more severe claims. More time commuting means a statistically higher chance of an accident.
  • Insurance loss statistics a Honda Accord - Insurance companies include the past claim trends for vehicles as a tool for profitable underwriting. Vehicles that the statistics show to have higher claim amounts or frequency will cost more for coverage.

    The next table shows the actual insurance loss data for Honda Accord vehicles. For each coverage category, the claim amount for all vehicles, regardless of make, model or trim level, equals 100. Numbers shown that are under 100 are indicative of better than average losses, while numbers that are greater than 100 point to more frequent losses or larger claims.
