Above prices assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Colorado minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-vehicle, homeowner, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Price estimates do not factor in your specific Aurora location which can change price quotes considerably.

Based on this data, using a $250 deductible will cost you roughly $16 more each month or $192 annually across all Ford Flex models than selecting the higher $500 deductible. Since the policyholder would be required to pay $250 more to file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you normally average at a minimum 16 months between claims, you would save more money by going with a higher deductible.

How to calculate deductible break even point

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $113
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): – $97
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $16
Difference between deductibles ($500 – $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $16
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 16 months

One thing to be aware of is that raising deductibles to get cheaper rates means you will have to pay more when you have a physical damage claim. You need to have enough extra money in order to pay more to get your vehicle repaired.

Take these five policy discounts and save on Ford Flex insurance in Aurora

Insuring your vehicles can cost a lot, but you may be missing some discounts that many consumers don’t even know exist. Some discounts apply automatically at quote time, but some may not be applied and must be specifically requested before they will apply. If you aren’t receiving every discount you deserve, you’re just leaving money on the table.Discount insurance

As a disclaimer on discounts, most credits do not apply to the entire cost. Some only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. So when it seems like you can get free auto insurance, it doesn’t quite work that way.

The example below illustrates the difference between Ford Flex auto insurance rates with and without discounts being applied to the rates. The prices are based on a male driver, no claims or violations, Colorado state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $250 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with safe-driver, marriage, homeowner, multi-car, multi-policy, and claim-free discounts applied.

It may be expensive, but it’s not optional

Even though it’s not necessarily cheap to insure a Ford in Aurora, paying for auto insurance is not optional due to several reasons.

First, almost all states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to carry a minimum amount of liability in order to license the vehicle. In Colorado these limits are 25/50/15 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $15,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if you took out a loan on your Flex, almost every bank will make it mandatory that you have full coverage to guarantee loan repayment. If the policy lapses, the bank may insure your Ford at a significantly higher premium and require you to pay for the expensive policy.

Third, auto insurance protects both your car and your assets. Insurance will pay for all forms of medical expenses that are the result of an accident. One of the most valuable coverages, liability insurance, will also pay for a defense attorney if someone files suit against you as the result of an accident. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will pay to repair the damage minus the deductible amount.

The benefits of having auto insurance more than offset the price you pay, especially if you ever need it. Unknowingly, the average driver overpays as much as $830 a year so you should quote and compare rates at least once a year to save money.

Picking the best insurer requires you to look at more than just a low price. Some important questions to ask are:

Insurance agent types

If you would like to find local Aurora agents, you must know there are a couple different types of agencies and how they operate. Agents may be either exclusive or independent (non-exclusive).

Exclusive Insurance Agencies

Exclusive agents work for only one company such as American Family, State Farm, and AAA. Exclusive agencies are unable to place coverage with different providers so always compare other rates. These agents are usually quite knowledgeable on what they offer which helps offset the inability to provide other markets. A lot of people buy insurance from these agents mostly because of the prominent brand name rather than having low rates.

The following is a short list of exclusive insurance agents in Aurora willing to provide price quote information.

Independent Agencies or Brokers

Independent agents often have many company appointments and that is an advantage because they can write policies through many companies and get you the best rates possible. If your premiums go up, an independent agent can move your coverage and the insured can keep the same agent.

When shopping rates, we recommend you get several quotes from at a minimum one independent agency to get the best comparison. Most also have access to additional companies that you may not be familiar with which can save you money.

Car insurance 101

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses for things like doctor visits, prosthetic devices, hospital visits and EMT expenses. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Liability insurance

This can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people in an accident. It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 25/50/15 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $15,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as court costs, emergency aid and medical services. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford. Colorado requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/15 but it’s recommended drivers buy better liability coverage.

The chart below demonstrates why minimum state limits may not be high enough to adequately cover claims.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Ford Flex.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits (25/50/15), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Comprehensive auto coverage

This pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like vandalism, rock chips in glass, damage from getting keyed and a broken windshield. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Collision coverage protection

Collision insurance pays for damage to your Flex resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for claims such as colliding with another moving vehicle, backing into a parked car, rolling your car, sustaining damage from a pot hole and hitting a mailbox. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible on your Flex in order to get cheaper collision rates.
