Insurance for Honda CR-VShocking but true, most consumers have remained with the same car insurance company for more than four years, and nearly the majority have never shopped around. Most drivers in Ohio can save nearly $729 each year just by shopping around, but they think it's difficult to shop around.

It takes a few minutes, but the best way to find discount Honda CR-V insurance is to do a yearly price comparison from companies who sell auto insurance in Toledo.

  • First, spend some time learning about how companies set rates and the changes you can make to keep rates down. Many rating factors that are responsible for high rates like at-fault accidents and an imperfect credit score can be amended by making minor changes in your lifestyle. This article gives instructions to keep prices down and find available discounts that you may qualify for.
  • Second, get rate quotes from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Direct companies and exclusive agencies can only provide price estimates from a single company like Progressive or Allstate, while independent agencies can provide rate quotes for a wide range of insurance providers.
  • Third, compare the price quotes to your existing policy to see if a cheaper rate is available. If you find a lower rate quote, verify that coverage does not lapse between policies.
  • Fourth, provide written notification to your current company of your decision to cancel the current policy. Submit payment and a signed application to the newly selected company. As soon as coverage is bound, store the proof of insurance certificate with your vehicle's registration.

One thing to remember is that you'll want to make sure you compare the same physical damage deductibles and liability limits on each price quote and and to get price estimates from as many companies as you can. This enables a level playing field and a thorough price selection.

Data rating is based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Ohio minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, multi-policy, safe-driver, multi-vehicle, and claim-free. Price estimates do not factor in vehicle location which can modify coverage rates noticeably.

Based on the figures above, using a $250 deductible costs approximately $8 more each month or $96 each year than quoting the higher $500 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $250 more if you turn in a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you have at least 31 months between claim filings, you would probably save some money by going with a higher deductible. The table below shows the way this calculation is made.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $58
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $50
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $8
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $8
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 31 months

An important sidenote is that a higher deductible level results in more money out-of-pocket when you have a claim. You should have enough money stashed away in the event you need to pay the higher deductible.

Auto insurance prices based on gender

The information below illustrates the comparison of Honda CR-V yearly insurance costs for male and female drivers. The price estimates are based on no tickets, no at-fault accidents, full coverage, $250 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are applied.

Honda CR-V full coverage rates compared to liability only

The illustration below illustrates the difference between Honda CR-V insurance premiums with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Ohio. The price estimates are based on no tickets, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, single marital status, and no policy discounts are applied.

When to stop buying comprehensive and collision coverage

There is no exact rule that works best for making the decision to drop physical damage insurance, but there is a general school of thought. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is about 10% or more of the settlement you would receive from your company, then you might consider buying liability only.

For example, let's pretend your Honda CR-V book value is $4,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most your company will settle for is $3,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are paying over $300 annually for your policy with full coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.

There are some circumstances where dropping full coverage is not a good plan. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you are required to maintain full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you can't afford to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not remove full coverage.

Discounts for cheaper auto insurance quotes

Auto insurance is not an enjoyable expense, but you might find some hidden discounts to help bring down the price. Certain discounts will be applied at the time you complete a quote, but a few must be asked for before you get the savings.

  • Auto/Home Discount - If you can bundle your auto and homeowners insurance with the same company you could earn a discount of at least 10 to 15 percent or more.
  • Multiple Cars - Buying insurance for multiple vehicles with one company can reduce rates for all insured vehicles.
  • Student Discount for Driver Training - It's a good idea to have your young drivers complete a driver education course as it will make them better drivers and lower rates.
  • Payment Method - By paying your entire bill at once as opposed to paying monthly you can avoid monthly service charges.
  • Good Student Discount - Getting good grades can get you a discount of up to 25%. Earning this discount can benefit you up until you turn 25.
  • Senior Citizen Rates - Older drivers can possibly qualify for a small decrease in premiums.
  • Auto/Life Discount - If the company offers life insurance, you could get a small discount if you purchase a life insurance policy as well.

We need to note that some credits don't apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only apply to individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. So even though you would think all the discounts add up to a free policy, nobody gets a free ride.

The information below compares Honda CR-V yearly insurance costs with and without discounts being applied to the rates. The premiums assume a male driver, no claims or violations, Ohio state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $250 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with marriage, safe-driver, claim-free, homeowner, multi-policy, and multi-car discounts applied.

Companies and their possible discounts are outlined below.

  • State Farm may have discounts that include accident-free, good driver, safe vehicle, multiple autos, and student away at school.
  • Farmers Insurance may offer discounts for youthful driver, early shopping, mature driver, homeowner, bundle discounts, pay in full, and multi-car.

Always remember that when buying insurance from an agent or online, there really is no best way to insure your cars. Each situation is unique so this has to be addressed. For example, these questions could help you determine whether or not you would benefit from an agent's advice.

  • If my pet gets injured in an accident are they covered?
  • When should my teen driver be added to my policy?
  • Are my custom wheels covered?
  • Does my personal policy cover me when driving out-of-state?
  • What is covered by UM/UIM coverage?
  • Is there a penalty for late payment?

If you don't know the answers to these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to an agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or click here for a list of car insurance companies in your area.

  • Does the agent have a valid license to sell insurance in Ohio?

If you would like to find an insurance agent, you need to know there are two different types of agencies to choose from. Agents in Toledo may be either independent or exclusive depending on the company they work for.

Exclusive Agencies

Exclusive insurance agents can only quote rates from one company such as AAA, State Farm, Farmers Insurance, and Allstate. These agents are unable to provide rate quotes from other companies so keep that in mind. These agents are usually quite knowledgeable on the products they sell which helps offset the inability to provide other markets. Many people buy insurance from these agents partially due to the prominent brand name instead of buying on price only.
