1990 Toyota Cressida Car Insurance Rates – 5 Tips for Cheaper Quotes

Searching for the cheapest insurance for a Toyota Cressida can be a lot of work, but you can use these tips to save time. There is a better way to find auto insurance online so we’re going to tell you the absolute fastest way to price shop coverage for a Toyota and get the lowest possible price from local insurance agents and online providers.

Finding the best rates is easy if you know what you’re doing. If you are insured now or need a new policy, you can follow these tips to get lower rates while maintaining coverages. Vehicle owners just need to learn the proper way to get comparison rates over the internet.

The cheapest insurance rate quotes

Finding cheap insurance rates can be quick and easy. All you need to do is take a couple of minutes to compare free insurance quotes to see which company has affordable insurance quotes. You can get a good selection of rate quotes in several different ways.

  1. Probably the best way to get quotes is a comparison rater form click to view form in new window. This form eliminates the need for separate quote forms for each company you want a rate for. Just one form gets prices estimates from several companies. It’s definitely the quickest method.
  2. A harder way to obtain and compare quotes online requires a trip to each individual company website and fill out their own quote form. For examples sake, we’ll assume you want rates from Auto-Owners, Liberty Mutual and Allstate. You would have to go to every website and enter your policy data, which explains why we recommend starting with the first method.

  3. The old school way to find and compare rates is to drive around to local insurance agencies. Shopping for insurance online eliminates this option unless you want the professional guidance of a licensed agent. If you prefer, some companies allow you to get prices online but have a local agent actually write the policy.

Compare rates however you want, just make sure you are using exactly the same deductibles and coverage limits on every quote. If you enter unequal deductibles or liability limits you will not be able to find the best deal for your Toyota Cressida.

More affordable rates by taking advantage of these five discounts

Some insurers don’t necessarily list all disounts very well, so we took the time to find a few of the more well known as well as some of the hidden credits available to you.

  • Multiple Vehicles – Insuring more than one vehicle on a single policy can get a discount for every vehicle.
  • Waiver for an Accident – Not necessarily a discount, but a handful of insurance companies will turn a blind eye to one accident before hitting you with a surcharge if you have no claims for a specific time period.
  • Discount for Good Grades – Being a good student may save as much as 25% on a insurance quote. The discount lasts until age 25.
  • Distant Student – Older children who are attending college and do not have access to a covered vehicle may be insured at a cheaper rate.
  • Professional Organizations – Joining qualifying employment or professional organizations could trigger savings when getting a insurance quote.

We need to note that some credits don’t apply to all coverage premiums. A few only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. So even though they make it sound like all the discounts add up to a free policy, it just doesn’t work that way. But any discount should help lower your premiums.

A few companies that may offer policyholders most of these discounts include:

It’s a good idea to ask each company what discounts are available to you. Some discounts may not apply to policyholders in your state. For a list of companies with the best insurance coverage discounts, click this link.

How much insurance do I need?

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage, there really is not a “perfect” insurance plan. Each situation is unique.

Here are some questions about coverages that can aid in determining whether your personal situation would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Are all vehicle passengers covered by medical payments coverage?
  • Is my state a no-fault state?
  • Exactly who is provided coverage by my policy?
  • Am I covered when driving on a suspended license?
  • Am I covered if I drive in a foreign country?
  • Do I need rental car coverage?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you know they apply to you, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and can provide invaluable advice.

Car insurance coverage considerations

Having a good grasp of a car insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Collision coverage protection

Collision coverage covers damage to your Cressida from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage protects against things like crashing into a building, hitting a mailbox and rolling your car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, a broken windshield, falling objects and vandalism. The maximum payout a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Liability coverage

Liability coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property by causing an accident. It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and property damage coverage for $25,000.

Liability insurance covers things like loss of income, medical expenses and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

UM/UIM Coverage

This coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Toyota Cressida.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.

Medical costs insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for expenses for dental work, nursing services and hospital visits. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

  1. Blaine Navarro

    Here’s my quote info. I live west of Los Angeles, CA. I got free prices from American Family, Safeco, and USAA for my 1990 Toyota Cressida and I think I saved around $10 each month. Was with Western Auto Insurance. It’s too old for full coverage.

  2. Ardelle Sullivan

    If you have a clean record and live around Phoenix, Arizona, check out Allstate. You might save some money. Have a couple speeding tickets too. Can still barely afford it. I’m thinking about dropping full coverage though.

  3. Mikaela Golden

    If you have a good history and live around Madison, WI, check out GEICO. You might save some money. I got prices on the web. Just liability coverage since it’s getting old.
