Volvo XC90 full coverage rates compared to liability only
The example below visualizes the comparison of Volvo XC90 auto insurance rates with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The price estimates are based on no claims or violations, $500 deductibles, married female driver, and no discounts are applied.
Should you be buying full coverage?
There isn’t a steadfast formula for excluding full coverage, but there is a general convention. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is more than 10% of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then it might be time to buy liability only.
For example, let’s pretend your Volvo XC90 replacement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most your company would pay you is $7,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying more than $700 a year for full coverage, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.
There are some scenarios where dropping physical damage coverage is not recommended. If you haven’t satisfied your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage to protect the lienholder’s interest in the vehicle. Also, if you can’t afford to buy a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should keep full coverage on your policy.
Get cheaper Volvo XC90 insurance in Austin with discounts
Insuring your fleet can be pricey, but you may qualify for discounts that could drop your premiums quite a bit. Many of these discounts will be applied automatically at the time of purchase, but a few need to be requested specifically in order for you to get them.
- Theft Prevention System – Cars with anti-theft systems are stolen with less frequency and will qualify for a discount on a Austin auto insurance quote.
- Telematics Data Discounts – Austin drivers who agree to allow companies to track driving habits through the use of a telematics system such as Allstate’s Drivewise and State Farm’s In-Drive system could possibly reduce rates if they are good drivers.
- Own a Home and Save – Owning your own home or condo may trigger a policy discount on car insurance because it demonstrates responsibility.
- Early Payment Discounts – By paying your policy upfront instead of making monthly payments you may have a lower total premium amount.
- Memberships – Affiliation with a qualifying organization is a simple method to lower premiums on your bill.
- Mature Driver Discount – Older drivers are able to get lower premium rates.
Remember that most of the big mark downs will not be given to your bottom line cost. Most only cut individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. So even though they make it sound like all the discounts add up to a free policy, car insurance companies aren’t that generous.

Three main reasons to buy auto insurance
Despite the potentially high cost of Volvo XC90 insurance, auto insurance is required by state law in Texas and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.
- The majority of states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry specific limits of liability if you drive a vehicle. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you have a loan on your Volvo XC90, most lenders will make it mandatory that you have physical damage coverage to protect their interest in the vehicle. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the lender will be forced to insure your Volvo at a much higher rate and force you to pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
- Auto insurance protects not only your car but also your financial assets. It will also reimburse you for all forms of medical expenses for you, your passengers, and anyone else injured in an accident. Liability insurance also pays expenses related to your legal defense if someone files suit against you as the result of an accident. If you receive damage to your vehicle caused by a storm or accident, comprehensive and collision coverage will pay to have it repaired.
The benefits of carrying enough insurance definitely exceed the cost, particularly when you have a large claim. An average driver in America is overpaying over $865 each year so shop around at least once a year to make sure the price is not too high.
