The chart below details how 2021 Corvette insurance cost changes with different driver ages and policy deductibles. Rates range from $1,408 per year for a 60-year-old driver with high policy deductibles to $4,620 each year for a 20-year-old driver with low deductibles.
|Driver Age||Deductible||Annual Cost||Monthly Cost|
The previous insurance rate chart plots a small set of values from a vast data set. If we displayed all rates for every possible data combination, including all six Corvette trim levels and all 40,000+ zip codes in the U.S., the chart would have 580,608,000,000 bars.
To better illustrate the full range of possible insurance rates, keep in mind that a Corvette insurance policy with only liability coverage in the cheapest areas of Virginia or North Carolina may cost as little as $240 a year.
For an identical Chevy Corvette, car insurance cost for a 16-year-old with a few speeding tickets in some of the more expensive zip codes in America could total as much as $14,562 a year for full coverage.
A few additional key data insights as they relate to Chevrolet Corvette insurance cost include:
- Policy discounts save money. Discounts may be available if the insured drivers belong to certain professional organizations, are good students, are accident-free, sign their policy early, or many other discounts which could save the average driver as much as $328 per year on the cost of insuring a Corvette.
- Corvette insurance is expensive for high-risk drivers. For a 50-year-old driver, having a tendency to get into accidents or receive violations could inflate rates by $2,224 or more per year.
- Raising deductibles makes insurance more affordable. Raising your policy deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $368 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $724 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
- Choosing a low deductible may not make good financial sense. Decreasing your policy deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $386 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $764 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
- Gender and age affect the rate you pay. For a 2021 Chevrolet Corvette, a 20-year-old male driver receives an average rate of $3,856 per year, while a 20-year-old female driver will pay $2,836, a difference of $1,020 per year in favor of the women by a long shot. But by age 50, male driver rates are $1,766 and the cost for female drivers is $1,730, a difference of only $36.
- Good credit scores mean better rates. In states that authorize a policyholder’s credit score to be used for the purpose of determining insurance rates, drivers who maintain a credit score over 800 could possibly save as much as $306 per year over a lower credit score of 670-739. Conversely, a subpar credit score could cost around $354 more per year.
- The cost to insure teenage drivers is high. Average rates for full coverage Corvette insurance costs $6,512 per year for a 16-year-old driver, $6,210 per year for a 17-year-old driver, and $5,848 per year for a 18-year-old driver.

Sooner or later, it will probably be a good financial move to drop comprehensive and/or collision coverage from the insurance policy. As vehicles get older and lose value, the cost of having physical damage protection begins to exceed the benefit of having it on the policy.
Deleting physical damage coverage on an older Chevrolet Corvette could save around $1,034 annually, depending on the policy deductibles and the age of the rated driver.
Another option for reducing the cost of insurance is to look at purchasing Corvette classic car insurance rather than a standard policy. If your miles are low enough, and the car is over 20 years old, it may qualify for the cheaper coverage.
How much is Corvette insurance for teens?
Average Corvette car insurance rates for teenage drivers ranges from $4,782 per year for a 19-year-old female driver to $6,512 per year for a 16-year-old male driver. Higher policy deductibles can help bring down the price, as will insuring your teen on an older model year Corvette.
Insurance on a Corvette for a 17-year-old driver ranges from $5,458 to $6,210, and Corvette insurance for an 18-year-old driver ranges from $5,086 to $5,848 per year. The chart below illustrates Corvette insurance cost for male and female teenage drivers from ages 16 to 19.
|Teen Driver Gender||Age 16||Age 17||Age 18||Age 19|
The insurance rates in the chart above are for a teen driver rated on a 2021 Corvette with full coverage, but as mentioned before, teenage driver insurance rates can be cheaper if they drive an older model, have higher physical damage deductibles, or if they take a driver’s education course.
