Porsche Cayenne owners have paid around $1,600 for insurance annually on average. Repairs aren’t that cheap either, given the caliber of the car. So, how can you bring down your expenses?
The easiest and often overlooked way to lower your insurance premium is by doing a bit of preliminary research on the insurance companies. Shop around and get quotes from at least 3 different insurers. Keep in mind that not every insurance company will have the same rates and discounts that the other does. So, by shopping around, you are ensuring you get the best possible rates.
In addition to this, you might consider dropping or lowering certain levels of existing coverage. Review your existing policy for any coverage levels you might not be utilizing. For example, let’s say you have been accident-free for several years. You are protected by a $500 deductible for collision and comprehensive. You may consider raising the deductible.
This would translate into concrete monthly savings, though you would be responsible for more costs up front in the event of an accident. One benefit is more situational, while the other is guaranteed. Play around with the numbers and see if the monthly savings are worth it for you.
