Buying cheap auto insurance for a Honda Accord in Georgia doesn't take a ton of time, but it is dependent upon a fairly complex equation with a lot of factors such as the mileage of your daily commute, whether or not you have prior claims, and your driving record. Georgia drivers pay around $990 per year to insure their Accord, but that cost is a valuation calculated using a 40-year-old married male driver with both comprehensive and collision coverage and $500 deductibles.
There's a good chance you aren't exactly 40 years old or even a male, maybe you are single instead of married, or maybe you have a speeding ticket that needs to be factored in. Not every driver requires the same auto insurance coverages, so the best way to find cheap insurance rates for your Honda is to compare as many rates as possible.
The trim level of your Honda will be a contributing factor to the annual cost of coverage, so the price you pay to insure a Accord LX 4-Dr Sedan will be $350 cheaper than the insurance cost for the high end Accord EX-L 2-Dr Coupe model, as demonstrated by the prices below.
|Model||Comp||Collision||Liability||Medical||UM/UIM||Annual Premium||Monthly Premium|
|Accord LX 4-Dr Sedan||$196||$312||$344||$20||$104||$976||$81|
|Accord EX 4-Dr Sedan||$196||$312||$344||$20||$104||$976||$81|

Rate difference between full and liability-only coverage
Finding the cheapest auto insurance should be important to most people, and a great way to reduce the cost of insurance for a Honda Accord is to not buy full coverage. The chart below illustrates the comparison of insurance premiums when comparing full coverage to liability only. The price estimates are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are factored in.
If we average the cost for all age groups, physical damage insurance costs $2,028 per year more than just buying liability insurance. Many of you may wonder if buying full coverage is worth the money. There is no exact rule for dropping physical damage insurance, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of full coverage is 10% or more of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.
How to get discounts on Atlanta insurance rates
Insurance providers that offer cheap quotes for a Honda Accord may also give you special discounts that could lower prices by as much as 40% or more if you meet specific criteria. Large auto insurance companies and the discounts they provide can be found below.
- 21st Century has discounts for anti-lock brakes, student driver, homeowners, defensive driver, good student, and 55 and older.
- State Farm offers discounts including multiple policy, safe vehicle, passive restraint, anti-theft, and good driver.
- AAA policyholders can earn discounts including multi-car, good student, AAA membership discount, anti-theft, multi-policy, pay-in-full, and education and occupation.
- Liberty Mutual has savings for hybrid vehicle, newly married, newly retired, new graduate, new move discount, and preferred payment discount.
- Progressive offers discounts for multi-policy, continuous coverage, multi-vehicle, online quote discount, homeowner, online signing, and good student.
The illustration below illustrates the comparison of insurance premiums with and without policy discounts. The prices are based on a female driver, a clean driving record, no claims, Georgia state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $100 deductibles.
The first bar for each age group shows the average annual price with no discounts. The second bar shows the rates with vehicle safety, multiple vehicle, accident-free, anti-theft, multiple policy, and defensive driving course discounts applied. When discounts are factored in, the average savings per year on auto insurance for a Honda Accord is 28% or $795.
