With so many factors going into car insurance rates, we broke out a few of them to illustrate how different profiles and lifestyle choices can make significant differences in what you’ll be paying to insure your Honda Accord.
- Expect to pay a lot for high risk insurance. For a 50-year-old driver, the requirement to buy a high-risk policy could raise rates by $2,118 or more per year. High-risk insurance is normally only required after serious offenses like DWI/DUIs, driving with a license or insurance, or multiple at-fault accidents.
- Driver gender influences rates. For a 2023 Honda Accord, a 20-year-old man pays an estimated $3,564 per year, while a 20-year-old female driver pays $2,632, a difference of $932 per year. Women get significantly cheaper rates at this age due to the tendency of males to be more aggressive and risk-tolerant. But by age 50, the cost for a male driver is $1,624 and the rate for women is $1,592, a difference of only $32. Marriage and kids will do that to a man.
- Avoiding accidents saves money. At-fault accidents raise insurance rates, possibly by an extra $2,520 per year for a 20-year-old driver and even $580 per year for a 50-year-old driver.
- Save money by qualifying for policy discounts. Discounts may be available if the insureds drive a vehicle with safety or anti-theft features, are claim-free, belong to certain professional organizations, insure their home and car with the same company, or many other policy discounts which could save the average driver as much as $300 per year.
- Get a discount from your choice of occupation. Some auto insurance providers offer policy discounts for specific professions like college professors, architects, doctors, members of the military, scientists, farmers, and other occupations. If you can get this discount applied to your policy, you may save between $53 and $178 on your annual insurance cost, depending on the age of the rated driver.
- Accord insurance for teen drivers is expensive. Average rates for full coverage Accord insurance costs $6,402 per year for a 16-year-old driver, $5,996 per year for a 17-year-old driver, and $5,606 per year for a 18-year-old driver.
- Auto insurance is cheaper with higher deductibles. Increasing deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $284 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $558 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
- Lower deductibles raise insurance cost. Dropping your physical damage deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $298 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $592 per year for a 20-year-old driver.

|2013 Honda Accord||$2,348||$1,184||$1,060|
Eventually, as the vehicle gets older it will make sense to remove either comprehensive or collision or both from the insurance policy. As vehicles get older and lose value from depreciation, the extra cost of physical damage protection starts to surpass the benefits.
Vehicle ages beyond the scope of the table above may be candidates for removing full coverage. Dropping comprehensive and collision coverage could save around $630 per year, depending on how high the deductibles were and the driver age.

Honda Accord car insurance rates for teenagers
The Honda Accord has always been a solid choice for teenagers to drive. Reliability and safety make it a good choice for younger drivers, and insurance cost is affordable.
Regardless of the type of vehicle chosen, however, car insurance for teenagers is always going to be higher-priced than for more mature drivers. Teens are easily distracted behind the wheel and have not had the experience that only comes with time and age.
Nevertheless, the chart below shows average Honda Accord car insurance rates for teenage drivers from the age of 16 to 19. Rates are broken out for both male and female drivers due to the significant difference in gender-based rates. Prices range from a low of $4,520 to insure a 19-year-old female driver to a high of $6,402 to insure a 16-year-old male driver.
|Teen Driver Gender||Age 16||Age 17||Age 18||Age 19|
As shown by the chart above, car insurance rates are highest for 16-year-old drivers and decline slightly each year. Honda Accord insurance for a 17-year-old driver costs an average of $5,324 for females and $5,996 for males. Insuring an 18-year-old on a Honda Accord would cost an average of $5,324 for females and $5,996 for males.
Keep in mind these rates are for a new 2023 Honda Accord, and rates tend to drop as the vehicle ages. Read the next section on liability-only insurance to get an idea of how to reduce the cost of Honda Accord car insurance for teens.
Full coverage vs. liability-only insurance cost
The teen driver rates in the chart above are for a 2023 Honda Accord with full coverage, which simply means insurance includes coverage for claims such as hail damage, collisions and vehicle theft.
A good way to reduce the cost of insurance for not only teenage drivers but any age driver is to purchase an older model Honda Accord and only insure it for liability insurance. This gives the required liability protection but saves money because you’re not paying for comprehensive and collision coverage.
The table below compares the cost of full coverage Honda Accord car insurance to the cost of only insuring for liability coverage.
|Vehicle Model Year||Full Coverage Insurance||Liability Insurance|
|2012 Honda Accord||$1,148||$550|
|2011 Honda Accord||$1,100||$546|
|2010 Honda Accord||$1,060||$542|
|2009 Honda Accord||$1,016||$538|
|2008 Honda Accord||$968||$528|
|2007 Honda Accord||$928||$520|
|2006 Honda Accord||$918||$516|
|2005 Honda Accord||$898||$510|
|2004 Honda Accord||$868||$506|
One thing to note about buying a liability-only car insurance policy is that if you do have an accident or incident where there is physical damage to your vehicle, you have no coverage. So if you do not have the financial means to replace the vehicle, it may not be the best idea to drop physical damage coverage entirely.
