Table data represents married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, multi-policy, safe-driver, multi-vehicle, and claim-free. Estimates do not factor in vehicle garaging location which can lower or raise price quotes noticeably.

Based on this data, we can arrive at the conclusion that using a $250 deductible costs approximately $28 more each month or $336 each year across all Suzuki Equator models than buying the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would pay $750 more if you turn in a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you usually have more than 27 months between claim filings, you would probably save some money if you opt for a higher deductible.

The diagram below illustrates how your deductible choice and can raise or lower Suzuki Equator insurance costs for different age groups. The information is based on a married female driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no policy discounts are applied.

The diagram below illustrates how speeding tickets and accident claims can increase Suzuki Equator insurance costs for each different age category. The information is based on a married female driver, full coverage, $1,000 deductibles, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

Cost of full coverage in San Antonio

The example below compares Suzuki Equator premium costs when comparing full coverage to state minimum liability only. The rate quotes are based on no violations or accidents, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are applied.

When to drop full coverage

There is no set guideline that is best for determining when to drop physical damage coverage, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is 10% or more of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let's assume your Suzuki Equator settlement value is $9,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most your company will settle for is $8,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If premium cost is more than $800 annually for physical damage coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

There are some situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not advised. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to carry full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not consider dropping full coverage.

Discount San Antonio car insurance quotes

Some companies do not advertise all possible discounts very well, so the below list has some of the best known and also the more inconspicuous credits available to bring down your rates.

  • Drivers Education - Make teen driver coverage more affordable by requiring them to participate in a local driver's education class if it's offered in school.
  • Claim-Free Discount - San Antonio drivers who stay claim-free pay less as opposed to policyholders that have many claims.
  • First Accident Forgiveness - This isn't a discount exactly, but a few companies such as Allstate, State Farm and GEICO allow you one accident without raising rates with the catch being you have to be claim-free prior to being involved in the accident.
  • Life Insurance Discount - Not every insurance company offers life insurance, but if they do you may earn lower prices if you buy life insurance from them.
  • Club Memberships - Belonging to a qualifying organization could trigger savings on car insurance.
  • Driving Data Discount - Drivers that enable data collection to spy on their driving habits through the use of a telematics system such as Allstate's Drivewise and State Farm's In-Drive system might see lower rates if they exhibit good driving behavior.
  • Discounts for Multiple Vehicles - Purchasing coverage when you have all your vehicles on a single policy can reduce the rates for all insured vehicles.

As a sidenote, most discount credits are not given to your bottom line cost. The majority will only reduce specific coverage prices like collision or personal injury protection. So even though they make it sound like adding up those discounts means a free policy, it's just not the way it works.

The diagram below illustrates the difference between Suzuki Equator auto insurance costs with and without policy discounts. Data assumes a male driver, no claims or driving violations, Texas state minimum liability limits, full coverage, and $500 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with homeowner, safe-driver, marriage, multi-policy, multi-car, and claim-free discounts applied.

A list of companies and their possible discounts are shown below.

  • State Farm includes discounts for good student, student away at school, driver's education, anti-theft, accident-free, Drive Safe & Save, and Steer Clear safe driver discount.
  • Nationwide has discounts for defensive driving, easy pay, multi-policy, Farm Bureau membership, family plan, and accident-free.
  • GEICO offers discounts including air bags, daytime running lights, driver training, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and membership and employees.
  • AAA may offer discounts for anti-theft, multi-policy, AAA membership discount, pay-in-full, good student, and multi-car.
  • 21st Century may include discounts for teen driver, student driver, good student, homeowners, driver training, and anti-lock brakes.
  • The Hartford discounts include driver training, good student, vehicle fuel type, air bag, anti-theft, bundle, and defensive driver.

Compare prices but still have a local neighborhood San Antonio car insurance agent

Certain consumers would rather go talk to an agent and that is OK! Professional agents can answer important questions and will help you if you have claims. One of the best bonuses of getting online price quotes is you may find cheap insurance quotes and still buy from a local agent.

Insurance agents in San AntonioFor easy comparison, once you complete this simple form, the coverage information is emailed to local insurance agents who will return price quotes and help you find cheaper coverage. You won't even need to even leave your home since rate quotes are delivered to your email. If you want to compare prices for a specific company, you can always go to their quote page and submit a quote form there.

Choosing the best company requires you to look at more than just a cheap price. Ask your prospective agent these questions:

  • Which insurance company do they prefer to write with?
  • What will you get paid if your car is a total loss? How is that amount determined?
  • What are the financial ratings for the companies they represent?
  • Are claim adjusters local or do you have to take your car somewhere else?
  • How many years of experience in personal auto insurance do they have?
  • Is coverage determined by price?
  • Which members of your family are coverage by the policy?
  • Can they give you a list of client referrals?

If you want to buy insurance from a reputable insurance agent or broker, it helps to know the two different agency structures and how they differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Agents in San Antonio are classified as either exclusive or independent. Both types of agents can do a good job, but it is a good idea to know the difference between them because it can impact your agent selection.

Exclusive Insurance Agencies

Agents that elect to be exclusive can only quote rates from one company such as State Farm, Allstate and AAA. Exclusive agents cannot provide rate quotes from other companies so it's a take it or leave it situation. They receive extensive training on their company's products and that can be a competitive advantage.

Shown below is a list of exclusive agents in San Antonio willing to provide price quotes.

Independent Insurance Agencies

Independent insurance agents do not write with just one company so they have the ability to put coverage with a variety of different insurance companies enabling the ability to shop coverage around. If your agent finds better pricing, they simply move the coverage in-house and you stay with the same agent. When comparison shopping, you should always include price quotes from at least one independent agent to get the best comparison.

The following is a short list of independent agents in San Antonio that are able to give price quote information.

Be persistent and save

As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, it's very important that you do not buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In many cases, someone dropped comprehensive coverage or liability limits and learned later that they should have had better coverage. Your focus should be to find the BEST coverage at the lowest possible cost, not the least amount of coverage.

Cheaper Suzuki Equator insurance in San Antonio is possible both online and with local San Antonio insurance agents, so you need to quote San Antonio car insurance with both in order to have the best chance of saving money. A few companies do not provide online price quotes and these smaller companies work with local independent agents.
