Buying the best cheap coverage for a Dodge Journey in Florida relies on a complicated formula that considers factors such as the age of the Journey, if you have recent claims, and any driving offenses on your record. Florida drivers pay approximately $1,455 annually for Journey insurance, but that amount is an approximation based upon a 50-year-old single male driver with full comprehensive and collision coverage and $100 deductibles.
There's a good chance you may not be 50 years old (or even male), possibly married instead of single, and you need different coverage limits than the sample rates. Even a minor difference in rating variables or coverage information could end up in a significant change in the policy cost.
Not everyone needs the same coverages, so the only way to find cheap car insurance rates for your Dodge is to just take the time to compare rates yourself. It only takes a few minutes and you will get price quotes from the cheapest companies that offer coverage in Florida.

The information below highlights how deductible choice can influence insurance costs when getting quotes for cheap insurance for a Dodge Journey. The premiums are based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no discounts are taken into consideration.
As shown above, a 40-year-old driver could pocket $476 a year by switching the physical damage coverage from a $100 deductible to a $500 deductible, or save $720 by selecting a $1,000 deductible. Even younger drivers, like the 20-year-old example, could roll back prices $1,582 or even more by selecting a higher deductible. When choosing a higher deductible, it's a good idea to have additional savings on hand to allow you to pay the extra out-of-pocket expense that is associated with using high deductibles.
How much more does full coverage cost?
Buying cheaper insurance is the goal of most vehicle owners, and one common way to lower the cost of insurance for a Dodge Journey is to buy only liability coverage. The example below shows the difference between insurance prices with full coverage compared to only the Florida minimum liability coverage. The rates are based on no claims or driving violations, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are taken into consideration.
Averaged out for all age groups, physical damage coverage on your policy costs $2,364 per year over and above liability coverage. At some point, every insured wonders if you should buy full coverage. There is no definitive guideline for phasing out physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline. If the annual cost of comprehensive and collision coverage is 10% or more of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.
For example, let's assume your vehicle's replacement cost is $10,500 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, you would only receive $9,500 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying more than $950 annually to have full coverage, then you might consider buying liability only.
There are some cases where buying only liability insurance is not recommended. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to carry full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should not drop full coverage.
