Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, multi-policy, homeowner, multi-vehicle, and claim-free. Price estimates do not factor in Plano location which can affect premiums greatly.

Based on this data, using a $100 deductible will cost you roughly $33 more each month or $396 annually across all Infiniti FX35 models than selecting the higher $500 deductible. Since you would have to pay $400 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to go at a minimum 12 months between claim filings, you would probably come out ahead if you decide on a higher deductible. The illustration below shows an example of how we made this calculation.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $152
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $119
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $33
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $100): $400
Divide difference by monthly savings: $400 / $33
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 12 months

Full coverage rates compared to liability-only

The illustration below shows the comparison of Infiniti FX35 annual premium costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Texas. The information is based on no claims or driving citations, $100 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

When to buy liability coverage only

There isn't a written rule to eliminate physical damage insurance, but there is a general convention. If the annual cost of coverage is more than 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it could be time to drop full coverage.

For example, let's pretend your Infiniti FX35 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 paying your policy deductible. If premium cost is more than $500 a year for full coverage, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.

There are some circumstances where dropping physical damage coverage is not a good idea. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to keep full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should keep full coverage.

Insurance discounts are available to lower rates

Some companies don't list every policy discount very clearly, so the below list has some of the best known and also the lesser-known discounts that may be available.Discount insurance

  • Own a Home and Save - Just being a homeowner may earn you a small savings because it demonstrates responsibility.
  • Telematics Data Discounts - Insureds who allow driving data submission to study driving manner through the use of a telematics system like Allstate's Drivewise might see lower rates if their driving habits are good.
  • Smart Student Discounts - Performing well in school can get you a discount of up to 25%. Many companies even apply the discount to college students up to age 25.
  • Discounts for New Vehicles - Putting coverage on a new FX35 can be considerably cheaper since newer vehicles are generally safer.
  • Distant College Student Discount - Youth drivers who live away from home at college and won't have access to an insured vehicle may qualify for this discount.
  • Mature Driver Discount - Mature drivers may qualify for a discount up to 10%.

One thing to note about discounts is that most discounts do not apply to your bottom line cost. A few only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like comprehensive or collision. Just because you may think having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, companies wouldn't make money that way. But all discounts will help lower your premiums.

The illustration below compares Infiniti FX35 auto insurance rates with and without discounts applied to the premium. The data is based on a female driver, no claims or 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 claim-free, multi-policy, multi-car, homeowner, marriage, and safe-driver discounts applied.

Companies and some of the premium reductions they offer are shown below.

  • State Farm may include discounts for good student, anti-theft, student away at school, Drive Safe & Save, multiple autos, multiple policy, and Steer Clear safe driver discount.
  • Nationwide offers discounts including defensive driving, Farm Bureau membership, multi-policy, good student, and accident-free.
  • GEICO has savings for federal employee, seat belt use, multi-policy, five-year accident-free, and military active duty.
  • AAA offers discounts for AAA membership discount, pay-in-full, good driver, education and occupation, good student, anti-theft, and multi-policy.
  • 21st Century offers premium reductions for anti-lock brakes, automatic seat belts, driver training, good student, and early bird.
  • The Hartford may offer discounts for good student, anti-theft, defensive driver, bundle, driver training, and vehicle fuel type.

Protect more than your vehicle

Even though it can be expensive, paying for car insurance is not optional due to several reasons.

First, most states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to buy specific limits of liability coverage in order to drive the car. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if you have a loan on your Infiniti FX35, it's guaranteed your bank will make it a condition of the loan that you buy insurance to ensure loan repayment if the vehicle is totaled. If you let the policy lapse, the lender may have to buy a policy to insure your Infiniti for a lot more money and require you to fork over for the expensive policy.

Third, car insurance protects both your Infiniti FX35 and your personal assets. It will also reimburse you for many types of medical costs for you, your passengers, and anyone else injured in an accident. As part of your policy, liability insurance also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will pay to have it repaired.

The benefits of having insurance greatly outweigh the cost, specifically if you ever have a liability claim. The average driver in Texas is currently overpaying as much as $750 every year so we recommend shopping around at every renewal to ensure rates are competitive.

If for some reason you want to quote rates from a specific car insurance provider, don't hesitate to search and find their rate quote page and submit a quote form there.

Choosing an insurer is decision based upon more than just a cheap quote. Some important questions to ask are:

  • Which insurance companies are they affiliated with?
  • How often do they review policy coverages?
  • How much will you save each year by using a higher deductible?
  • Do they write coverage based solely on cost?
  • Will you be dealing directly with the agent or with a Custom Service Representative (CSR)?
  • Do they get paid more for recommending certain coverages?

The difference between Plano auto insurance agents

If you would like to find a reliable insurance agent, there are a couple of different types of agents that you can select. Insurance agencies in Plano are categorized either independent agents or exclusive agents. Either one can sell and service car insurance coverage, but it's important to point out how they are different since it can impact your agent selection.

Exclusive Car Insurance Agencies

Agents that elect to be exclusive have only one company to place business with and examples are Farmers Insurance, State Farm, Allstate, and AAA. Exclusive agents cannot provide prices from multiple companies so it's a take it or leave it situation. Exclusive agencies are well schooled on sales techniques which helps them sell on service rather than price. Consumers sometimes choose to use a exclusive agent mostly because of the brand name rather than having the cheapest rates.

Shown below are exclusive agencies in Plano that can give you rate quotes.

Independent Car Insurance Agencies

Independent agents often have many company appointments and that is an advantage because they can write policies with many different companies and find you cheaper rates. If your agent finds better pricing, they simply move the coverage in-house and you don't have to do anything. When shopping rates, we recommend you include at a minimum one independent agency to have the best price comparison. They also have the ability to place coverage with mutual insurance companies who may have lower rates.

Listed below are Plano independent agencies that are able to give rate quotes.
