Table data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and California minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, homeowner, claim-free, safe-driver, and multi-policy. Premium amounts do not factor in specific location which can change rates significantly.

Based on the data above, we can derive that using a $100 deductible costs an average of $72 more each month or $864 for a full year than choosing the higher $1,000 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $900 more if you turn in a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you usually have more than 13 months between claims, you would save money if you opt for a higher deductible. Below is how you can perform this determination yourself.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $202
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $130
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $72
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $72
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 13 months

An important thing to remember is that raising deductibles to get cheaper rates means you will have to pay more when you have a comprehensive or collision claim. That will require enough disposable savings in the event you have to pay the higher deductible in order to repair your vehicle.

The illustration below demonstrates how choosing different deductibles and can increase or decrease BMW X6 annual premium costs for each different age category. The premiums are based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Do you need full coverage?

The chart below illustrates the comparison of BMW X6 insurance prices with full coverage compared to only the California minimum liability coverage. The premium estimates are based on no driving violations, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, single status, and no additional discounts are factored in.

When to drop comprehensive and collision

There isn't a written rule of when to phase out full coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's assume your BMW X6 replacement cost is $7,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most your company would pay you is $6,000 after paying your policy deductible. If it's costing in excess of $600 a year for full coverage, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.

There are some situations where buying only liability insurance is not a good idea. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not opt for liability only.

Cut your insurance rates with these five discounts

Companies don't always publicize all their discounts in a way that's easy to find, so the list below gives a summary of both the well known and the more hidden credits available to bring down your rates.Insurance discounts

  • Multiple Policy Discount - If you can combine your homeowners and auto policy with the same company they may give you a discount of nearly 15% which can help you find affordable BMW X6 insurance rates in Santa Ana.
  • Onboard Data Collection - Insureds that choose to allow their insurance company to spy on driving patterns through the use of a telematics system such as Progressive's Snapshot might get better premium rates if they have good driving habits.
  • Memberships - Joining qualifying clubs or civic groups could trigger savings on your policy.
  • ABS Braking Discount - Cars and trucks equipped with ABS or steering control can reduce accidents and earn discounts up to 10%.
  • Own a Home - Just being a homeowner may earn you a small savings because of the fact that having a home requires a higher level of personal finance.

As is typical with insurance, some credits don't apply to the entire cost. Most only apply to specific coverage prices like liability and collision coverage. If you do the math and it seems like it's possible to get free car insurance, it doesn't quite work that way.

The chart below illustrates the difference between BMW X6 insurance costs with and without discounts applied to the policy rates. The data is based on a female driver, no accidents or driving violations, California state minimum liability limits, full coverage, and $500 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with homeowner, marriage, claim-free, multi-car, safe-driver, and multi-policy discounts applied.

Coverages available on your policy

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your BMW X6.

Since many California drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (15/30/5), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Liability car insurance

Liability coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to people or other property by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see liability limits of 15/30/5 which means a $15,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $30,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $5,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability insurance covers claims such as structural damage, bail bonds, loss of income and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but consider buying as large an amount as possible. California state minimum liability requirements are 15/30/5 but it's recommended drivers buy higher limits.

The illustration below shows why minimum state limits may not be high enough to cover claims.

Coverage for collisions

Collision insurance covers damage to your X6 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage protects against things like colliding with a tree, sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter and crashing into a ditch. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. You can also choose a higher deductible on your X6 to get cheaper collision coverage.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for claims like falling objects, fire damage, rock chips in glass and hitting a deer. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value consider dropping full coverage.

Medical expense insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses for dental work, pain medications, nursing services, doctor visits and X-ray expenses. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
