Data rating is based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and California minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, homeowner, multi-policy, claim-free, and multi-vehicle. Information does not factor in zip code location which can impact rates noticeably.

Based on this data, we can arrive at the conclusion that using a $250 deductible costs an average of $16 more each month or $192 annually across all GMC Canyon models than choosing the higher $500 deductible. Since you would have to pay $250 more to file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to have at least 16 months between claims, you would save more money by selecting a higher deductible.

The information below illustrates how your choice of deductibles and can influence GMC Canyon insurance costs for each age group. The information is based on a married female driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

Car insurance discounts are available to lower rates

Some providers do not list every discount very clearly, so the list below details both the well known and the harder-to-find credits available to lower your premiums when you buy Los Angeles auto insurance online.

  • Mature Driver Discount - If you qualify as a senior citizen, you may qualify for a small discount on rates.
  • Service Members Pay Less - Having a deployed family member could qualify you for better prices.
  • Discount for Multiple Policies - If you insure your home and vehicles with the same insurance company you could save at least 10% off all policies.
  • Driving Data Discount - Insureds who allow their company to monitor where and when they drive by using a telematics device like Allstate's Drivewise could see a rate decrease as long as they are good drivers.
  • Anti-theft Discount - Cars equipped with anti-theft or alarm systems have a lower chance of being stolen and will save you 10% or more on Canyon insurance in Los Angeles.
  • Multiple Vehicles - Purchasing coverage when you have all your vehicles with the same company can get a discount for every vehicle.
  • Discounts for New Vehicles - Insuring a new Canyon can save up to 30% due to better safety requirements for new model year vehicles.

While discounts sound great, it's important to understand that most of the big mark downs will not be given to the entire cost. The majority will only reduce individual premiums such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. Even though it appears adding up those discounts means a free policy, it's just not the way it works.

The example below compares GMC Canyon annual premium costs with and without discounts applied to the policy premium. The costs are based on a male driver, no tickets, no at-fault accidents, California state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $500 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with homeowner, multi-car, claim-free, multi-policy, marriage, and safe-driver discounts applied.

Large car insurance companies and their offered discounts are outlined below.

  • State Farm policyholders can earn discounts including multiple autos, good driver, Drive Safe & Save, multiple policy, safe vehicle, driver's education, and Steer Clear safe driver discount.
  • Progressive has savings for homeowner, continuous coverage, online signing, good student, online quote discount, and multi-vehicle.
  • Travelers offers premium reductions for new car, hybrid/electric vehicle, home ownership, multi-car, multi-policy, and early quote.
  • American Family discounts include bundled insurance, defensive driver, multi-vehicle, good student, and air bags.
  • Liberty Mutual includes discounts for exclusive group savings, teen driver discount, newly married, new vehicle discount, and multi-car.

Tailor your auto insurance coverage to you

Always keep in mind that when comparing the best auto insurance coverage for your vehicles, there isn't really a "perfect" insurance plan. Everyone's needs are different so your insurance needs to address that. Here are some questions about coverages that can aid in determining whether your personal situation would benefit from professional advice.

  • Are there any extra discounts I can get?
  • Am I covered by my employer's commercial auto policy when driving my personal car for business?
  • How can I get the company to pay a claim?
  • Am I covered when renting a car or should I buy coverage from the car rental agency?
  • When should I remove comp and collision on my GMC Canyon?
  • Do I need higher collision deductibles?
  • Does my policy cover me if I wreck while driving under the influence?
  • Which companies will insure high-risk drivers?
  • Is extra glass coverage worth it?

If it's difficult to answer those questions, you might consider talking to an agent. To find an agent in your area, fill out this quick form or click here for a list of auto insurance companies in your area.

What car insurance coverages do you need?

Knowing the specifics of your policy aids in choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Car insurance terms can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverage types found on most car insurance policies.

Auto collision coverage

This covers damage to your Canyon from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, damaging your car on a curb, hitting a mailbox, rolling your car and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It's also possible to choose a higher deductible on your Canyon to save money on collision insurance.

Coverage for liability

Liability insurance will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others, and doesn't cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show liability limits of 15/30/5 which stand for a limit of $15,000 per injured person, $30,000 for the entire accident, and $5,000 of coverage for damaged property. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability can pay for things such as loss of income, medical expenses and attorney fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but buy as large an amount as possible. California state law requires minimum liability limits of 15/30/5 but drivers should carry higher limits.

The next chart shows why low liability limits may not be high enough to adequately cover claims.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants when the "other guys" either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle's damage.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits (California limits are 15/30/5), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Most of the time these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Insurance for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for immediate expenses for rehabilitation expenses, funeral costs and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird, vandalism and a broken windshield. The most your car 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.

Quote. Compare. Save.

When getting Los Angeles auto insurance quotes online, make sure you don't reduce needed coverages to save money. In many instances, drivers have reduced full coverage to discover at claim time that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. Your goal should be to get the best coverage possible at the best cost, not the least amount of coverage.

Budget-conscious GMC Canyon insurance can be sourced on the web and with local Los Angeles insurance agents, and you should compare rates from both in order to have the best chance of saving money. A few companies don't offer online quoting and most of the time these regional insurance providers provide coverage only through independent agents.
