Data rating is based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Ohio minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, claim-free, multi-vehicle, homeowner, and multi-policy. Rates do not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can change price quotes considerably.

We can derive from the above data that using a $250 deductible will cost in the ballpark of $19 more each month or $228 each year averaged for all Altima models than choosing the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would pay $750 more out of your own pocket with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you normally go more than 39 months between claim filings, you would save more money if you opt for a higher deductible.

The diagram below illustrates how choosing a deductible and can change Nissan Altima premium costs for each age group. The premium estimates are based on a married female driver, comp and collision included, and no discounts are applied.

Does full coverage make sense?

The illustration below illustrates the difference between Nissan Altima yearly insurance costs with full physical damage coverage and with liability coverage only. The rate quotes are based on no claims or driving citations, $500 deductibles, single marital status, and no policy discounts are applied.

Guidelines for dropping full coverage

There is no definitive formula to exclude full coverage on your policy, but there is a general school of thought. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is 10% or more of the vehicle's replacement cost less your deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's say your Nissan Altima replacement cost is $5,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company will settle for is $4,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If you are paying in excess of $400 a year to have full coverage, then it could be time to drop full coverage.

There are some conditions where eliminating full coverage is not advised. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should not buy liability only.

Best reasons to buy insurance in Ohio

Even though it's not necessarily cheap to insure a Nissan in Cincinnati, insurance is not optional due to several reasons.

  • Most states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means state laws require specific limits of liability insurance in order to license the vehicle. In Ohio these limits are 25/50/25 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you took out a loan on your Nissan Altima, most banks will make it a condition of the loan that you have insurance to ensure loan repayment if the vehicle is totaled. If the policy lapses, the bank will be required to insure your Nissan for a lot more money and make you pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
  • Insurance protects both your assets and your vehicle. It will also pay for many types of medical costs for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay to defend you if you are named as a defendant in an auto accident. If mother nature or an accident damages your car, comprehensive and/or collision insurance will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.

The benefits of insuring your car definitely exceed the price paid, especially for larger claims. In a recent study of 1,000 drivers, the average customer overpays as much as $820 a year so it's important to compare rates every year to help ensure money is not being wasted.

Nissan Altima Insurance Cost Factors

Many factors are considered when pricing auto insurance. Some factors are common sense such as your driving history, but other criteria are not as apparent like your continuous coverage and annual miles driven.

Liability insurance risk factors - Your car insurance policy's liability coverage is the protection if a court rules you are at fault for an accident. It provides you with a defense in court to attempt to prove you were not liable. Carrying liability coverage is mandatory and cheap when compared to the cost of physical damage coverage, so do not skimp.

Gender as a rate factor - Statistics have proven women tend to be less risk to insure than men. However, this does not mean females are better at driving than males. Women and men are in accidents in similar percentages, but guys have accidents that have higher claims. In addition to higher claims, males also get ticketed for serious violations such as driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving recklessly.

The diagram below compares Nissan Altima premium costs for male and female drivers. The price estimates are based on no violations or accidents, full coverage, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Additional coverages that may be costing you - Insurance policies have a lot of extra bells and whistles that sound like a good idea at the time but may not be useful. Coverages like vanishing deductibles, accidental death, and term life insurance are probably not needed. You may think they are a good idea when buying your policy, but if you have no use for them get rid of them and save.

Poor driving means higher prices - Being a careful driver has a big impact on rates. Getting just one moving violation can boost insurance rates by as much as thirty percent. Drivers with clean records get better prices compared to bad drivers. Drivers who have gotten multiple violations such as DUI, reckless driving or excessive speeding may face state-mandated requirements to submit a SR-22 form with their state DMV in order to legally drive.

The information below illustrates how traffic citations and at-fault collisions raise Nissan Altima premium costs for each age group. The data is based on a single female driver, full coverage, $100 deductibles, and no other discounts are factored in.

Deter car thieves - Selecting a car model that has an advanced theft prevention system can help lower your premiums. Theft deterrent systems like OnStar, LoJack tracking, and tamper alarms can thwart auto theft and help lower rates.

Tough job may mean higher prices - Occupations like real estate brokers, business owners, and medical professionals are shown to have the highest rates because of intense work requirements and lots of time spent away from family. Other professions such as scientists, historians and performers generally pay rates lower than average.

Save money by having multiple policies - Many insurance companies afford better rates to policyholders who consolidate policies with them, otherwise known as a multi-policy discount. The amount of the discounts can be ten or even up to twenty percent in some cases. Even if you already get this discount, you still need to compare Nissan Altima rates in Cincinnati to ensure the best deal.There is a chance you can find better rates by splitting coverages up.

Continuous car insurance coverage saves money - Driving your car without having proper coverage is not a good idea and your next policy will cost more because you let your coverage have a gap. And not only will insurance be more expensive, being ticketed for driving with no insurance could earn you fines or a revoked license. You may then be required to prove you have insurance by filing a SR-22 with the Ohio motor vehicle department to get your license reinstated.

Insurance losses for a Nissan Altima - Insurance companies take into consideration historical loss data for every vehicle to help calculate a profitable premium price. Vehicles that have higher claim amounts or frequency will have a higher cost to insure.

The table below illustrates the historical insurance loss data for Nissan Altima vehicles. For each policy coverage, the loss probability for all vehicles averaged together equals 100. Values under 100 imply a favorable loss record, while percentages above 100 point to more claims or statistically larger claims.

Lower rate quotes by taking advantage of discounts

Car insurance can cost a lot, but discounts can save money and there are some available that you may not even know about. Many discounts should be triggered at the time of quoting, but some discounts are required to be requested specifically before being credited.Insurance discounts

  • 55 and Retired - Older drivers could receive reduced rates.
  • Early Switch Discount - A few insurance companies offer discounts for buying a new policy before your current expiration date. It can save you around 10%.
  • Theft Deterrent Discount - Cars, trucks, and SUVs equipped with tracking devices and advanced anti-theft systems are stolen less frequently so companies will give you a small discount.
  • Accident Waiver - This one is not really a discount per se, but companies like Allstate and Progressive will forgive one accident before raising your premiums if you are claim-free for a certain period of time.
  • Pay Now and Pay Less - If you pay your bill all at once as opposed to paying monthly you could save 5% or more.
  • College Student Discount - Children who are enrolled in a college that is more than 100 miles from Cincinnati and do not take a car to college may be insured at a cheaper rate.
  • Defensive Driving Course - Participating in a course teaching defensive driving skills could save 5% or more depending on where you live.

A little note about advertised discounts, many deductions do not apply to the whole policy. Most only reduce individual premiums such as comp or med pay. Despite the fact that it seems like adding up those discounts means a free policy, company stockholders wouldn't be very happy.

The example below illustrates the comparison of Nissan Altima insurance premiums with and without discounts applied to the policy premium. The information is based on a female driver, no tickets, no at-fault accidents, Ohio state minimum liability limits, comprehensive and collision coverage, and $100 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with multi-car, marriage, homeowner, multi-policy, claim-free, and safe-driver discounts applied.
