Buying the best cheap car insurance for a Honda CR-V in Florida depends on many factors such as how you use your CR-V, where you live, and any prior driving offenses. Drivers will pay around $964 annually for CR-V insurance, but that amount is an estimation calculated based on a 50-year-old single male driver with full coverage and $500 deductibles.

But there is a high probability that you are not 50 and maybe not even a male, maybe you are married instead of single, and maybe you want higher deductibles. Having different needs demonstrates why the best way to find cheap insurance rates for your Honda is to compare as many rates as possible.
The specific model of CR-V will be a contributing factor to the cost of coverage, so the rate you pay to insure a CR-V LX 2WD will cost $30 less than the price to insure the more well-appointed CR-V EX-L 4WD version, as shown by the rates below.
|Model||Comp||Collision||Liability||Medical||UM/UIM||Annual Premium||Monthly Premium|
|CR-V LX 2WD||$196||$370||$400||$24||$120||$1,110||$93|
|CR-V EX 2WD||$196||$370||$400||$24||$120||$1,110||$93|
|CR-V LX 4WD||$196||$370||$400||$24||$120||$1,110||$93|

Full coverage rates compared to liability-only
Lowering the price of car insurance is the goal of the majority of vehicle owners, and one of the easiest ways to reduce the cost of insurance for a Honda CR-V is to not buy comprehensive and collision coverage. The information below visualizes the comparison of yearly insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Florida. The data is based on no accidents, no driving violations, $250 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are applied.
On average, comp and collision coverage costs $2,186 per year more than just insuring for liability. That is a big expense that brings up the question if buying full coverage is a waste of money. There is no written rule of when to drop comp and collision coverage, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let's say your vehicle's settlement value is $11,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most your company will settle for is $10,000 after you pay the deductible. If it's costing you more than $1,000 a year for physical damage coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some scenarios where eliminating full coverage is not a good plan. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to maintain full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not remove full coverage.
Types of discounts on Jacksonville insurance

The example below shows the comparison of car insurance costs with and without discounts applied to the premium. The rates are based on a male driver, a clean driving record, no claims, Florida state minimum liability limits, comp and collision included, and $1,000 deductibles.
The first bar for each age group shows the average rate with no discounts. The lower bar shows the rates with defensive driving course, passive restraint, accident-free, safe-driver, multiple policy, and homeowner discounts applied. When these discounts are applied to the policy premium, the average amount saved each year on car insurance for a Honda CR-V is 28% or $494.
