Protect more than your vehicle

Despite the potentially high cost of Hyundai Tucson insurance, car insurance is required in Alaska but also provides important benefits.

First, most states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to buy specific minimum amounts of liability insurance coverage if you drive a vehicle. In Alaska these limits are 50/100/25 which means you must have $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if your Tucson has a lienholder, almost every bank will have a requirement that you have comprehensive coverage to ensure loan repayment if the vehicle is totaled. If the policy lapses, the lender will be forced to insure your Hyundai at a much higher premium rate and require you to pay for the much more expensive policy.

Third, insurance safeguards both your assets and your vehicle. It will also provide coverage for many types of medical costs for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. One of the most valuable coverages, liability insurance, also covers legal expenses if you are sued as the result of your driving. If your Hyundai gets damaged, comprehensive and/or collision insurance will pay to repair the damage minus the deductible amount.

The benefits of insuring your Tucson definitely exceed the price paid, particularly when you have a large claim. Unknowingly, the average driver overpays more than $820 a year so you should quote rates at least once a year to ensure rates are inline.

Data rating is based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Alaska minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, homeowner, multi-policy, multi-vehicle, and claim-free. Rate quotes do not factor in specific Anchorage garaging location which can impact premium rates significantly.

Based on this data, we can arrive at the conclusion that using a $100 deductible could cost the average driver approximately $17 more each month or $204 a year than choosing the higher $500 deductible. Since you would have to pay $400 more out of your own pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you have more than 24 months between claim filings, you would save more money if you elect the higher deductible. Here is an example of how you can make your own decision.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $84
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): – $67
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $17
Difference between deductibles ($500 – $100): $400

Cost comparison with and without full coverage

The example below compares Hyundai Tucson insurance prices when comparing full coverage to liability only. The premiums assume no violations or accidents, $500 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are factored in.

Are you wasting money on full coverage?

There is no exact formula to eliminate full coverage, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of coverage is more than about 10% of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then it could be time to drop full coverage.

For example, let’s say your Hyundai Tucson settlement value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most you would receive is $6,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If premiums are more than $600 a year to have full coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.

There are some conditions where dropping physical damage coverage is not advised. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you must maintain physical damage coverage in order to satisfy the requirements of the loan. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not eliminate full coverage.
