Additional sample rates and possible policy discounts on Spark insurance include:
- Policy discounts equal cheaper Spark insurance rates. Discounts may be available if the insureds are claim-free, belong to certain professional organizations, insure their home and car with the same company, are good students, are senior citizens, or many other discounts which could save the average driver as much as $244 per year.
- Earn a discount from your employment. Some car insurance providers offer discounts for certain occupations like members of the military, emergency medical technicians, scientists, architects, police officers and law enforcement, and other occupations. Working in a qualifying occupation could potentially save between $43 and $173 on your car insurance premium, depending on your policy.
- Clean up your credit to lower your rates. In states that authorize a driver’s credit data to be used as an auto insurance rate factor, drivers who maintain a credit score over 800 could find savings as much as $227 per year when compared to a credit score ranging from 670-739. Conversely, a weak credit rating could cost as much as $263 more per year.
- Avoid accidents for cheaper rates. At-fault accidents raise insurance rates, to the tune of $672 per year for a 30-year-old driver and even $462 per year for a 60-year-old driver.
- The higher deductible you choose, the lower the policy cost. Raising deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $180 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $344 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
- Choosing a low deductible may not make good financial sense. Decreasing your deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $188 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $364 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
- Rates tend to decrease as driver age increases. The difference in 2022 Spark insurance cost between a 60-year-old driver ($1,296 per year) and a 20-year-old driver ($2,862 per year) is $1,566, or a savings of 75.3%.

At some point as the vehicle gets older, vehicle owners have to make the decision to delete physical damage coverage (comprehensive and collision) from a policy. As a vehicle loses value over time, the expense of maintaining comprehensive and collision coverage begins to outweigh the benefits provided by having it.
Buying a liability-only policy on an older Chevrolet Spark could possibly save around $414 a year, depending on what the comprehensive and collision deductibles were set to and the age of the driver rated on the vehicle.
