When to drop comprehensive and collision coverage
There is no clear-cut rule for eliminating physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let's say your Honda Civic settlement value is $3,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would get paid by your company is $2,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If it's costing in excess of $200 a year for your policy with full coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.
There are some scenarios where eliminating full coverage is not recommended. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to keep full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should keep full coverage in place.
Tailor your auto insurance coverage to you
When buying your policy, there really is not a perfect coverage plan. Your situation is unique.

- Am I covered if I hit a deer?
- Will I lose any money if I cancel my policy before it expires?
