Full coverage versus liability only rates
The illustration below illustrates the comparison of Toyota Yaris annual premium costs with and without physical damage coverage, medical payments, and uninsured/under-insured motorist coverage. The premium estimates are based on no claims, a clean driving record, $250 deductibles, single male driver, and no additional discounts are factored in.
Deciding between full coverage and liability only
There is no set guideline of when to exclude physical damage insurance, but there is a general school of thought. If the annual cost of coverage is more than 10% of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let's say your Toyota Yaris replacement cost is $7,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, you would only receive $6,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If you are currently paying more than $600 a year to have full coverage, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
There are a few situations where eliminating full coverage is not in your best interest. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to maintain full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not drop full coverage.
Tickets and at-fault accidents raise rates
The example below demonstrates how traffic citations and at-fault collisions can raise Toyota Yaris car insurance costs for each different age group. The data is based on a married female driver, comp and collision included, $1,000 deductibles, and no discounts are applied.

Your situation is unique and your auto insurance should be unique as well. For instance, these questions might help in determining whether you could use an agent's help.
