Additional rates and tips

Below are some additional insurance rate estimates and savings tips for different types of situations and driver risk profiles.

  • Auto insurance is cheaper with higher deductibles. Increasing deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $248 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $484 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • The lower deductible you choose, the higher the policy cost. Lowering your physical damage coverage deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $256 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $510 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • Your choice of occupation could earn you discounts. The large majority of auto insurance providers offer discounts for being employed in occupations like engineers, college professors, doctors, high school and elementary teachers, scientists, architects, and others. If your job can earn you this discount, you could save between $46 and $159 on your annual Prius insurance bill.
  • Driver gender influences rates. For a 2022 Toyota Prius, a 20-year-old male driver will pay an estimated rate of $3,034 per year, while a 20-year-old female driver will pay $2,244, a difference of $790 per year. The females get the cheaper rate by far. But by age 50, the rate for males is $1,388 and the cost for women is $1,362, a difference of only $26.
  • Clean up your credit for better rates. In states that allow a driver’s credit information to be used for the purpose of determining insurance rates, drivers who have credit scores over 800 could experience savings as high as $240 per year versus a slightly lower credit score between 670-739. Conversely, a less-than-good credit score could cost as much as $278 more per year.
  • The cost to insure teen drivers is expensive. Average Prius insurance costs $5,408 per year for a 16-year-old driver, $5,074 per year for a 17-year-old driver, and $4,746 per year for a 18-year-old driver.
