Price data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, multi-policy, multi-vehicle, homeowner, and claim-free. Table data does not factor in vehicle location which can change coverage rates considerably.

Based on this data, we can arrive at the conclusion that using a $250 deductible will cost you approximately $13 more each month or $156 annually than opting for the higher $500 deductible. Since the policyholder would be required to pay $250 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to average at least 19 months between claim filings, you would probably come out ahead by going with a higher deductible. The table below shows a better example of how you can decide this on your own policy.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $96
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $83
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $13
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $13
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 19 months

An important sidenote is that raising deductibles to save money results in more money out-of-pocket when you have a comprehensive or collision claim. You need to make sure you have enough extra savings in the event you have to pay the deductible to have repairs made.

The diagram below highlights how deductible selection and can raise or lower Honda CR-V insurance rates for each different age group. Data assumes a married male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no other discounts are factored in.

Buy Honda CR-V Insurance at a Discount

Many things are used when quoting car insurance. Most are fairly basic like an MVR report, but other criteria are more transparent such as your credit history or your commute time. A large part of saving on car insurance is knowing the rating factors that help calculate your policy premiums. If you have a feel for what controls the rates you pay, this empowers consumers to make smart changes that may result in lower car insurance prices.

The following are a partial list of the pieces used by your company to calculate your rate level.

Prices impacted by your city - Being located in a rural area has it's advantages when buying car insurance. People in densely populated areas tend to have congested traffic and much longer commute distances. Fewer people translates into fewer accidents and a lower car theft rate.

Rates are impacted by vehicle performance - The type of vehicle you are insuring makes a significant difference in your rates. The lowest premiums will generally be found on economy passenger cars, but your final cost has many other factors.

The following chart assumes a single male driver age 30, full coverage with $250 deductibles, and no discounts or violations. It shows Honda CR-V insurance premiums compared to other models of vehicles that have a range of performance rating factors.

Low comp and collision deductibles cost more - Comprehensive and collision coverage deductibles are the amount of money you are required to spend before your car insurance pays a claim. Insurance for physical damage to your car, also called comprehensive and collision insurance, is used to repair damage to your car. Some coverage claims are a windshield broken by a bird, damage from fire, and damage caused by road hazards. The more of the claim you're willing to pay, the lower your rates will be.

Allowing your car insurance policy to lapse raises premiums - Not maintaining insurance is a big no-no and as a result your rates will increase for letting your coverage lapse. Not only will you pay more, not being able to provide proof of insurance could result in fines and jail time.

Cheaper rates after marriage - Having a wife or husband may earn you lower rates on your car insurance bill. It usually means you are more financially stable and insurance companies reward insureds because married couples file fewer claims.

Insurance loss statistics a Honda CR-V - Insurers analyze the history of losses when setting premium costs. Models that the data shows to have increased losses will have higher premium rates.

The table shown below demonstrates the historical insurance loss data for Honda CR-V vehicles. For each coverage type, the statistical loss for all vehicles, as a total average, is set at 100. Values that are below 100 suggest a better than average loss history, while numbers that are greater than 100 indicate more frequent claims or an increased probability of a larger loss.
