First, try to understand how car insurance works and the things you can control to prevent rate increases. Many factors that result in higher rates like traffic violations and a bad credit rating can be amended by improving your driving habits or financial responsibility. Continue reading for instructions to prevent rate hikes and find additional discounts you may qualify for.

Second, request rate estimates from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive agents and direct companies can give quotes from one company like GEICO or State Farm, while independent agents can provide price quotes from multiple insurance companies.

Third, compare the new quotes to the price on your current policy to see if a cheaper price is available. If you find a better price, make sure coverage is continuous and does not lapse.

Fourth, provide proper notification to your current company of your intention to cancel your existing policy. Submit the completed application along with a down payment to your new carrier. Make sure you store the proof of insurance paperwork with the vehicle registration.

An important bit of advice to remember is to make sure you enter identical limits and deductibles on each quote and and to get price estimates from as many auto insurance providers as possible. Doing this helps ensure a fair price comparison and a complete selection of prices.

Statistics show that a large majority of insurance policyholders kept their coverage with the same insurance company for at least the last four years, and 38% of drivers have never shopped around. The average driver in Texas could save an average of approximately 70% each year just by shopping around, but most tend to underestimate how much savings they would realize if they switched.

Premium data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, claim-free, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Price estimates do not factor in vehicle garaging location which can lower or raise coverage prices considerably.

We can derive from the above data that using a $250 deductible will cost you about $44 more each month or $528 every year than opting for the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would pay $750 more to settle a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you average at least 17 months between claim filings, you would probably come out ahead by selecting a higher deductible.

Rate comparison of full coverage and liability-only

The chart below shows the difference between BMW X6 car insurance rates with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Texas. The costs are based on no claims, a clean driving record, $250 deductibles, single marital status, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Should you buy full coverage or liability only?

There isn't a steadfast formula of when to drop full coverage, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is more than 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

For example, let's say your BMW X6 replacement cost is $5,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most you would get paid by your company is $4,000 after paying your deductible. If it's costing in excess of $400 annually for physical damage coverage, then it could be time to drop full coverage.

There are some cases where dropping full coverage is not recommended. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you must maintain physical damage coverage to protect the lienholder's interest. Also, if you can't afford to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should keep full coverage.

Reduce your insurance rates with discounts

Car insurance can cost a lot, but you might be missing out on some discounts to reduce the price significantly. Many of these discounts will be applied automatically at the time of purchase, but lesser-known reductions have to be asked for before being credited.Save money with discounts

  • Pay Early and Save - If paying your policy premium upfront instead of paying each month you may reduce your total bill.
  • Student Discounts - Being a good student can save 20 to 25%. Earning this discount can benefit you until age 25.
  • Drive Safe and Save - Insureds who avoid accidents may save up to 50% more compared to rates paid by drivers with frequent claims.
  • Senior Citizen Rates - If you qualify as a senior citizen, you can get a small discount on rates.
  • Multi-car Discount - Having more than one vehicle on a single policy can reduce rates for all insured vehicles.
  • Defensive Driving Course - Taking part in a course that instructs on driving safety could earn you a small percentage discount depending on where you live.
  • Discount for Multiple Policies - If you insure your home and vehicles with one company you could save nearly 15% which can help you find cheap X6 insurance.
  • Accident Waiver - This one is not really a discount per se, but some companies like Allstate, Progressive, and GEICO may permit one accident before they charge you more for coverage with the catch being you have to be claim-free for a specific time period.
  • Memberships - Being in qualifying employment or professional organizations may earn a discount when getting a Plano car insurance quote.

While discounts sound great, it's important to understand that many deductions do not apply to all coverage premiums. Some only reduce individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. Just because it seems like all those discounts means the company will pay you, insurance companies wouldn't stay in business. Any qualifying discounts should help lower your premiums.

The diagram below visualizes the comparison of BMW X6 insurance costs with and without discounts applied to the premium. The premium estimates are based on a female driver, no accidents, no driving violations, Texas state minimum liability limits, comprehensive and collision coverage, and $250 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with claim-free, homeowner, multi-car, multi-policy, marriage, and safe-driver discounts applied.

A few popular companies and a partial list of their discounts are included below.

  • Progressive offers premium reductions for continuous coverage, multi-policy, online quote discount, good student, multi-vehicle, and online signing.
  • The Hartford discounts include good student, bundle, driver training, anti-theft, defensive driver, and air bag.
  • Mercury Insurance has discounts for professional/association, good student, anti-theft, age of vehicle, and accident-free.
  • GEICO has savings for emergency military deployment, anti-theft, membership and employees, federal employee, good student, and defensive driver.
  • AAA may offer discounts for good student, multi-car, multi-policy, good driver, and AAA membership discount.
  • State Farm includes discounts for defensive driving training, good student, good driver, passive restraint, Drive Safe & Save, and anti-theft.

Before you buy a policy, ask all the companies which discounts you qualify for. Depending on the company, some discounts might not be offered everywhere. If you would like to choose from a list of insurance companies with discount rates in Plano, follow this link.

Smart Buyers Save More

It's important that you understand the different types of things that are used to determine your premiums. When you know what positively or negatively determines premiums, this allows you to make good choices that could result in lower rates.

  • Less chance of injury means lower prices - Vehicles that have high safety ratings can get you lower premiums. Safe vehicles help reduce the chance of injuries in an accident and reduced instances of injuries translates into savings for insurance companies which can mean better rates for you. If your BMW scored at minimum four stars on Safercar.gov or an "acceptable" rating on iihs.org it may cost less to insure.
  • Save money by having multiple policies - Some insurance companies afford a discount to people that buy multiple policies such as combining an auto and homeowners policy. Even if you qualify for this discount already, consumers should still compare other Plano X6 insurance rates to help ensure you have the lowest rates.
  • Only buy coverage you need - There are quite a few additional coverages that may not really be needed but may not be useful. Things like rental car coverage, death and dismemberment, and additional equipment coverage may not be needed and are just wasting money. They may sound like good ideas initially, but now you might not need them so think about removing them and cutting costs.
  • Youthful drivers cost more - Youthful drivers in Texas have a tendency to be more careless when driving with friends so insurance rates are higher. If you've ever had to add a young driver onto a policy can break the bank. Older people tend to be more responsible, are lower risk to insure, and are safer drivers.

    The chart below assumes a single driver, full coverage with $250 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.

Buying from car insurance agents

Many people still like to talk to a local agent and that can be a smart move A good thing about comparing rate quotes online is you can get the lowest rates but also keep your business local.

Finding the right company requires you to look at more than just the bottom line cost. You should also get answers to these questions.

  • Are they paid to recommend certain coverages?
  • Can you use your own choice of collision repair facility?
  • Will your rates increase after a single accident?
  • Is working in the agency their full-time job?
  • How many years of experience in personal auto insurance do they have?

If you are wanting to purchase insurance from a local insurance agency, you need to know there are two different types of agencies that you can choose from. Agencies in Plano are classified as either exclusive or independent agents depending on their company appointments.

Exclusive Insurance Agencies

Exclusive agents generally can only insure with one company and examples are State Farm or Allstate. Exclusive agents cannot compare other company's rates so you might not find the best rates. Exclusive agents are usually well trained on what they offer which helps them compete with independent agents. A lot of people buy insurance from these agents partially due to the brand name instead of buying on price only.

The following are Plano exclusive agencies who may provide you with price quotes.

Independent Agents

Agents of this type are appointed with more than one company and that enables them to quote your coverage with an assortment of companies depending on which coverage is best. If they find a lower price, they simply switch companies in-house and the insured can keep the same agent. When searching for an agent, you definitely need to include rate quotes from a few independent agents in order to have the best price comparison. Most also write with companies that do not advertise much who may have lower rates.

Listed below is a list of independent insurance agencies in Plano willing to provide rate quotes.

One last note

Insureds switch companies for many reasons like poor customer service, questionable increases in premium, high rates after DUI convictions or policy cancellation. Whatever your reason, choosing a new insurance company is pretty simple and you could end up saving a buck or two.

While you're price shopping online, it's a bad idea to reduce needed coverages to save money. In many instances, drivers have reduced comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to regret that the savings was not a smart move. The ultimate goal is to buy a smart amount of coverage for the lowest price, but do not skimp to save money.

Cost effective BMW X6 insurance can be purchased on the web as well as from independent agents in Plano, so you should compare both to have the best selection. Some auto insurance companies do not offer online price quotes and most of the time these regional carriers work with independent agents.
