Prices above based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Nebraska minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, claim-free, safe-driver, homeowner, and multi-policy. Price estimates do not factor in vehicle garaging location which can alter premium rates greatly.

Based on this data, we can arrive at the conclusion that using a $100 deductible will cost you roughly $22 more each month or $264 each year across all Toyota Highlander models than choosing the higher $500 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $400 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to average more than 18 months between claims, you would save money if you choose a higher deductible.

Rate difference between full and liability-only coverage

The example below shows the comparison of Toyota Highlander car insurance costs with and without physical damage coverage. Data assumes no claims or driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, single marital status, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Should you be buying full coverage?

There is no specific rule for eliminating comp and collision coverage, but there is a general guideline. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than 10% of replacement cost minus your deductible, then it might be time to buy liability only.

For example, let’s say your Toyota Highlander replacement cost is $5,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most you would receive is $4,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If it’s costing in excess of $400 annually for physical damage coverage, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

There are some situations where eliminating full coverage is not financially feasible. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should keep full coverage in place.

Three reasons to not skimp on car insurance

Even though Lincoln Highlander insurance rates can get expensive, paying for car insurance is required in Nebraska but it also protects you in many ways.

First, just about all states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means the state requires a specific minimum amount of liability protection in order to license the vehicle. In Nebraska these limits are 25/50/25 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if you bought your Toyota Highlander with a loan, most lenders will force you to have comprehensive coverage to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your Toyota for a much higher rate and require you to pay the higher premium.

Third, insurance safeguards both your car and your assets. It will also pay for many types of medical costs for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay to defend you if you are named as a defendant in an auto accident. If your Toyota gets damaged, comprehensive and/or collision insurance will pay to repair the damage minus the deductible amount.

The benefits of buying enough insurance more than offset the price you pay, specifically if you ever have a liability claim. The average driver in America is currently overpaying as much as $850 per year so compare quotes from several companies every year to be sure current rates are still competitive.

Lower your auto insurance rates with discounts

Auto insurance is not cheap nor is it fun to buy but there’s a good chance there are discounts that can help lower your rates. Certain credits will be shown when you quote, but less common discounts must be asked for before you get the savings.Cheaper auto insurance with discounts

A quick disclaimer, most of the big mark downs will not be given to your bottom line cost. Most cut specific coverage prices like liability and collision coverage. So even though it sounds like all those discounts means the company will pay you, nobody gets a free ride. But any discount should help lower your overall premium however.

The chart below shows the difference between Toyota Highlander insurance costs with and without discounts applied to the rates. The premium estimates are based on a female driver, no claims or driving violations, Nebraska state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $500 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with safe-driver, claim-free, multi-policy, homeowner, marriage, and multi-car discounts applied.

Car insurance companies that may have most of these discounts include:

It’s a good idea to ask every company which credits you are entitled to. All car insurance discounts may not apply in your state.

Different types of Lincoln car insurance agents

If you prefer to buy insurance from a local insurance agency, you must know there are a couple types of agencies that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Insurance agencies in Lincoln are considered either exclusive or independent agents depending on their company appointments.

Exclusive Insurance Agencies

Exclusive agents generally can only insure with one company such as Allstate, AAA, Farmers Insurance, and State Farm. Exclusive agents cannot give you multiple price quotes so they have to upsell other benefits. These agents are well trained on what they offer and that allows them to sell at a higher price point. Consumers sometimes choose to use a exclusive agent primarily because of the prominence of the brand rather than having low rates.

Independent Agencies or Brokers

Agents of this type often have affiliation with several companies so they have the ability to put coverage with a variety of different insurance companies and get you the best rates possible. If premiums increase, they can switch companies in-house and you don’t have to find a new agent.

If you are comparing rate quotes, you need to include rate quotes from at a minimum one independent agency to get the best comparison. Most independent agents also contract with companies you’ve never heard of which may provide better rates.

How to quote cheaper Toyota Highlander insurance in Lincoln

It takes a little time, but the best way to get affordable car insurance rates is to compare quotes once a year from insurers that insure vehicles in Lincoln.

  1. Read and learn about the coverage provided by your policy and the measures you can control to keep rates in check. Many policy risk factors that are responsible for high rates like speeding and a low credit rating can be controlled by making small lifestyle or driving habit changes.
  2. Compare prices from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Direct companies and exclusive agencies can give quotes from one company like Progressive or Farmers Insurance, while independent agencies can provide prices for a wide range of companies.
  3. Compare the new rate quotes to your existing coverage to see if cheaper Highlander coverage is available in Lincoln. If you find a better price, verify that coverage does not lapse between policies.
  4. Provide proper notification to your current company of your intention to cancel your existing policy. Submit a down payment along with a completed application for your new policy. Immediately put the certificate verifying proof of insurance above your visor, in the console, or in the glove compartment.

A good tip to remember is that you’ll want to compare the same amount of coverage on each quote request and and to get quotes from as many car insurance companies as possible. This ensures the most accurate price comparison and a complete selection of prices.
