Hawaii Auto Insurance Information

   Hawaii is a no fault state, which means that in the event of an accident each driver's medical expenses will be covered by their own insurance company, regardless of who was responsible. Each driver must possess PIP (personal injury protection) coverage which will cover their medical expenses in case of an accident. Those individuals with good health care insurance will probably not find it necessary to carry more than the minimum amount of PIP insurance.
   In Hawaii motorists are required to carry liability to the tune of $20,000 for bodily injury suffered by a single occupant of a car, $40,000 for the combined medical expenses of all of the occupants of the car, and $10,000 for any property damage resulting from the accident, including the vehicle of the other driver, fences, mailboxes and public property. The driver responsible for the accident will be held responsible for any expenses beyond this point.

How to reduce your rates

   Your auto insurance premium is based on three primary factors:
  • How long you’ve had your license
  • How many miles you drive in a year
  • How many accidents or tickets you have
  •    The insurance company can also use a variety of secondary factors to determine premium, but the most important secondary factor is the frequency and severity of claims the company has experienced in the area where you live. Since claim experience differs between companies, the premium charged by insurance companies can greatly vary. That's why you need to shop around.
       Comparison shopping is the best way to save money on auto insurance. Savvy shoppers who keep a clean driving record will be able to find the best insurance deals with good companies. Another way to save money is by taking larger deductibles and lowering limits; however, make sure that you are not putting your financial future in jeopardy by choosing low limits and high deductibles. Auto insurance needs to be a priority in your budget, not an afterthought.
       Insurance rates differ greatly between cars. If the car is safe and performs well in crash tests, is not frequently stolen, and/or has certain safety or anti-theft features, it will generally cost less to insure. If the car is flashier, has a history of being frequently stolen, or is more expensive to repair, you can bet your insurance rates will be higher.

    Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist

       It is strongly recommended that all drivers carry an uninsured/underinsured motorist policy. While the state requires that all drivers carry insurance not all are willing to comply, and even with the no fault policy a resident involved in a hit and run or an accident with a driver who either does not carry insurance or whose insurance is very poor may be left with a huge financial responsibility.
