Prices based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Wisconsin minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, claim-free, homeowner, multi-vehicle, and multi-policy. Information does not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can decrease or increase premiums noticeably.

Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $100 deductible could cost the average driver approximately $17 more each month or $204 each year than quoting the higher $500 deductible. Since you would pay $400 more out-of-pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you usually have at least 24 months between claims, you would save money if you choose a higher deductible.

Calculation for raising deductibles

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $81
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $64
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $17
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $100): $400
Divide difference by monthly savings: $400 / $17
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 24 months

Decisions You Make Can Impact Your Insurance Costs

Many things are taken into consideration when you quote your car insurance policy. A few of the factors are predictable like a motor vehicle report, but other criteria are less apparent such as your marital status or your vehicle rating. It's important that you understand some of the things that help determine your insurance rates. When you understand what determines premiums, this allows you to make good choices that can earn you lower premium levels.

Men drivers tend to cost more - The statistics show that women are safer drivers than men. It does not mean females are better drivers. Women and men are responsible for auto accidents at about the same rate, but guys cause more damage and cost insurance companies more money. Men also statistically get more serious tickets such as driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving recklessly. Youthful male drivers cause the most accidents and are penalized with high insurance rates.

Long commutes cost more - The higher the mileage driven in a year's time the higher your rate. Most insurance companies price each vehicle's coverage based on their usage. Autos that sit idle most of the time can be on a lower rate level compared to those used for work or business. Ask your agent if your insurance coverage reflects the right rating data, because improper ratings can cost you money. A policy that improperly rates your Sonata may be costing you higher rates.

Safer vehicles lower insurance rates - Cars with five star safety ratings tend to have lower insurance rates. Safer cars have better occupant injury protection and fewer injuries translates into fewer and smaller insurance claims and thus lower rates.

Lower coverage deductibles cost more - Comprehensive and collision coverage deductibles are how much you are required to spend if a claim is determined to be covered. Coverage for physical damage, otherwise known as comp (or other than collision) and collision, protects your car from damage. Some instances where coverage would apply are colliding with a stationary object, animal collisions, or theft of your vehicle. The more money you pay before a claim is paid (deductible), the lower your rates will be.

Bundling policies can get discounts - Many companies will give better rates to policyholders that purchase more than one policy in the form of a multi-policy discount. This can amount to anywhere from five to ten percent in most cases. Even with this discount, it's still a good idea to shop around to confirm you are receiving the best rates possible. Consumers may save even more by insuring with multiple companies.

Hyundai Sonata historical loss data - Insurance companies use claims history as a tool for profitable underwriting. Models that the statistics show to have higher loss trends will have a higher cost to insure. The table below illustrates the insurance loss data for Hyundai Sonata vehicles.

For each coverage category, the statistical loss for all vehicles, regardless of make or model, is represented as 100. Numbers shown that are under 100 suggest a better than average loss history, while values that are 100 or greater indicate a higher chance of having a claim or tendency to have higher losses.

Independent Auto Insurance Agents (or Brokers)

Selecting a insurance agent requires you to look at more than just the price. Ask your prospective agent these questions:

Three reasons to not skimp on auto insurance

Even though it can be expensive, paying for auto insurance is required by state law in Wisconsin and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.

First, just about all states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means you are required to carry specific minimum amounts of liability in order to drive the car. In Wisconsin these limits are 25/50/10 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if you have a lien on your Sonata, it's guaranteed your bank will have a requirement that you have comprehensive coverage to protect their interest in the vehicle. If coverage lapses or is canceled, the lender may have to buy a policy to insure your Hyundai at a significantly higher premium and force you to pay for the much more expensive policy.

Third, auto insurance preserves both your vehicle and your personal assets. Insurance will pay for most medical and hospital costs for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. As part of your policy, liability insurance also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, comprehensive and collision coverage will pay to repair the damage minus the deductible amount.

The benefits of buying enough insurance greatly outweigh the cost, specifically if you ever have a liability claim. According to a 2015 survey, the average American driver is wasting up to $825 a year so compare rates every year to save money.

One last thing about your coverage

Cheaper Hyundai Sonata insurance in Milwaukee is possible both online and from local insurance agents, so you should compare both in order to have the best chance of saving money. Some insurance companies may not have rate quotes online and these small insurance companies provide coverage only through independent agents.

You just read many tips how you can get a better price on Hyundai Sonata insurance in Milwaukee. The most important thing to understand is the more quotes you get, the better chance you'll have of finding inexpensive Milwaukee auto insurance quotes. You may even find the lowest priced insurance comes from an unexpected company. Regional companies may only write in your state and offer lower rates than their larger competitors like State Farm and Allstate.

As you prepare to switch companies, it's a bad idea to skimp on coverage in order to save money. There have been many cases where an accident victim reduced liability coverage limits only to find out that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. Your strategy should be to buy enough coverage at the best possible price.
