Prices above based on married female driver age 40, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $500 deductibles, and Hawaii minimum liability limits.

Price comparison of only insuring for liability

The diagram below illustrates the difference between Ford Expedition annual premium costs when comparing full coverage to liability only. The data assumes no claims, a clean driving record, $500 deductibles, married male driver, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

When to stop paying for full coverage

There isn't a steadfast formula for eliminating comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can use. If the annual cost of coverage is 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let's say your Ford Expedition settlement value is $5,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most you would receive is $4,000 after paying your deductible. If premiums are more than $400 a year for your policy with full coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

There are a few cases where buying only liability insurance is not a good idea. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to maintain full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not opt for liability only.

Physical damage deductibles

The example below demonstrates how deductible levels and can impact Ford Expedition insurance rates for different ages of insureds. The information is based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

A little disclaimer on discounts, most discount credits are not given the the whole policy. Most only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as medical payments or collision. Even though the math looks like all those discounts means the company will pay you, you're out of luck.

Two types of auto insurance agents

If you are wanting to find a reliable insurance agent, there are two types of agencies and how they operate. Honolulu agents can be categorized as either independent or exclusive depending on the company they work for.

Exclusive Agencies

Agents of this type can only write with one company such as Farmers Insurance and State Farm. Exclusive agents cannot compare rates from other companies so keep that in mind. They are trained well on their company's products and that allows them to sell at a higher price point. Many people buy insurance from these agents mostly because of high brand loyalty and the convenience of having a single billing for all their coverages.

Below is a short list of exclusive insurance agencies in Honolulu that are able to give price quotes.

Independent Agents

Independent agents do not have single company limitations so they can write business through lots of different companies enabling the ability to shop coverage around. To transfer your coverage to a different company, they simply switch companies in-house and you won't have to switch agencies.

If you are comparing rate quotes, we highly recommend that you get several quotes from at a minimum one independent agency in order to have the best price comparison. They also have the ability to place coverage with smaller regional carriers which can be an advantage.
