Additional Rates and Policy Discounts

A few additional key data insights about Toyota Highlander insurance rates include:

  • Get a discount from your job. The large majority of auto insurance providers offer policy discounts for working in professions like high school and elementary teachers, accountants, police officers and law enforcement, architects, lawyers, and others. Getting this discount could save between $46 and $158 on your annual insurance cost, subject to policy limits.
  • Clean up your credit to lower your rates. In states that have laws that do not prevent a driver’s credit information to be used for the purpose of determining insurance rates, having an excellent credit score over 800 could save as much as $239 per year when compared to a credit score ranging from 670-739. Conversely, a subpar credit score could cost up to $277 more per year.
  • Being a good driver saves money. Having frequent at-fault accidents will raise rates, possibly as much as $2,146 per year for a 20-year-old driver and as much as $462 per year for a 60-year-old driver.
  • Increasing deductibles makes car insurance cheaper. Boosting your deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $252 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $498 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • The lower deductible you choose, the higher the policy cost. Lowering deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $262 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $524 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • Highlander insurance is expensive for high-risk drivers. For a 50-year-old driver, having enough accidents and violations to require a high-risk insurance policy can cause a rate increase of $1,802 or more per year.
  • Young male drivers pay the highest rates. For a 2022 Toyota Highlander, a 20-year-old man will have an average rate of $3,044 per year, while a 20-year-old woman will get a rate of $2,242, a difference of $802 per year in the women’s favor by a large margin. But by age 50, the cost for male drivers is $1,386 and female rates are $1,358, a difference of only $28.
  • Obey the law to get lower policy cost. To earn the lowest Highlander insurance rates, it pays to not be aggressive behind the wheel. As few as two minor moving violations could result in a rate hike of up to $396 per year. Serious misdemeanors like driving without insurance could raise rates by an additional $1,408 or more.
