Cheaper rates with these discounts
Auto insurance is easily one of your largest bills, but you may find discounts that you may not know about. Certain discounts will be applied when you purchase, but a few must be requested specifically before you get the savings. If you check and find you aren’t receiving every discount you deserve, you are paying more than you should be.
- Multiple Vehicles – Purchasing coverage when you have multiple cars or trucks with one company can reduce rates for all insured vehicles.
- Early Payment Discounts – By making one initial payment rather than paying in monthly installments you may reduce your total bill.
- Air Bags and Passive Restraints – Cars that have air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems can get savings of 25 to 30%.
- Discounts for New Vehicles – Buying auto insurance coverage on a new vehicle can be considerably cheaper because newer vehicles have to meet stringent safety requirements.
- Early Signing – A few insurance companies allow discounts for buying a new policy prior to your current Cooper insurance policy expiration. It could save around 10% when you buy Laredo auto insurance online.
- Discount for Multiple Policies – If you can combine your auto and homeowners policy and place coverage with the same company you will save at least 10 to 15 percent or more.
- Paperwork-free – A handful of companies will provide an incentive shop Laredo auto insurance online.
- Service Members Pay Less – Having a deployed family member could qualify you for better premium rates.

How much more does full coverage cost?
The chart below shows the comparison of Mini Cooper insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Texas. The premiums are based on no violations or claims, $1,000 deductibles, single marital status, and no discounts are factored in.
Should you buy full coverage or liability only?
There isn’t a steadfast formula for phasing out physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline. If the annual cost of comprehensive and collision coverage is more than about 10% of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s assume your Mini Cooper replacement value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, you would only receive $6,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying over $600 a year for physical damage coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not a good plan. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you are required to maintain full coverage to protect the lienholder’s interest in the vehicle. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not drop full coverage.
You Can Change Your Insurance Costs
Lots of things are used when you get your auto insurance bill. Some factors are common sense like an MVR report, but other factors are less apparent such as your credit history or how safe your car is.
Higher comp and collision deductibles are cheaper – The deductibles define the amount you are willing to pay out-of-pocket if a claim is determined to be covered. Physical damage protection, also known as collision and other-than-collision, insures against damage to your car. Some examples of covered claims could be a windshield broken by a bird, vandalism, or theft of your vehicle. The larger the amount you have to pay, the less your insurance will be.
Pleasure use saves money – Driving more miles each year the more you’ll pay to insure it. A lot of insurance companies price each vehicle’s coverage based on how the vehicle is used. Autos left parked in the garage receive lower rates than those that get driven frequently. An improperly rated Cooper may be wasting your money. Make sure your policy is showing the proper vehicle usage.
Driving citations inflate prices – Having just one speeding ticket or other violation can boost insurance rates substantially. Attentive drivers receive lower rates compared to drivers with tickets. Drivers unfortunate enough to have license-revoking violations such as DWI, reckless driving or hit and run convictions may find they need to maintain a SR-22 with the DMV in their state in order to prevent a license revocation.
The illustration below highlights how speeding tickets and at-fault collisions can impact Mini Cooper insurance premiums for different categories of driver ages. The premiums assume a married male driver, full physical damage coverage, $1,000 deductibles, and no policy discounts are applied.
Never have insurance policy lapses – Driving without insurance coverage in place is a misdemeanor and insurance companies will penalize you for letting your coverage cancel without a new policy in place. In addition to paying higher rates, failure to provide proof of insurance may earn you a revoked license or a big fine. You may then have to provide proof of insurance in the form of an SR-22 filing with the Texas DMV.
Claims statistics for a Mini Cooper – Auto insurance companies include the past claim history for a vehicle to help calculate premium rates. Models that the data determines to have a trend towards higher claims will have a higher premium rate.
