How to get discounts on Chula Vista auto insurance rates

Car insurance for veterans in Chula Vista, CAInsurers that sell policies for veterans may also give you price discounts that can lower rates by as much as 25% or more if you meet eligibility requirements. A few popular companies and some of the premium reductions they offer can be read below.

The example below illustrates the difference between insurance costs with and without discounts being applied to the rates. The data is based on a female driver, no claims or driving citations, California state minimum liability limits, full coverage, and $250 deductibles.

Full coverage or liability only

Reducing premiums for car insurance is probably important to the majority of drivers, and one great way to find cheap insurance for veterans is to only pay for liability coverage. The illustration below compares auto insurance costs when comparing full coverage to liability only. The rate quotes are based on no accidents, no driving violations, $100 deductibles, single status, and no additional discounts are factored in.

If we average the cost for ages 20 through 70, physical damage coverage on your policy costs $2,525 per year more than just insuring for liability. A very common question is if you should buy full coverage at all. There is no specific rule that is best for determining when to drop full coverage, but there is a general school of thought. If the yearly cost of full coverage is 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.
