Cheap 2001 Toyota Highlander Insurance Quotes

Looking for the cheapest insurance rates for your Toyota Highlander? Are you at wits end from being strong-armed each month for insurance? Your situation is no different than many other consumers.

There is such a variety of auto insurance companies to pick from, and though it is a good thing to have a choice, lots of choices makes it harder to compare rates and find the lowest cost insurance.

How to get car insurance rate quotes

When shopping for cheaper auto insurance quotes, there are a couple of ways of comparing price quotes from companies that offer car insurance in your state. The fastest way to find affordable Toyota Highlander insurance rates involves getting comparison quotes online. This can be done using a couple different methods.

The fastest way to compare a lot of rates at once is a comparison rater form like this one (opens in new window). This form prevents you from having to do separate quotes for every company. Filling out one form will get you rate comparisons from several companies.

A different way to analyze rates requires visiting each company website to complete a price quote. For sake of this example, we’ll assume you want to compare GEICO, Progressive and Liberty Mutual. You would have to go to every website and repeatedly type in your coverage information, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

How you compare quotes is your choice, just compare equivalent coverage information for each price quote. If the quotes have mixed coverages you can’t possibly make a fair rate comparison. Even a minor difference in coverage limits could mean much higher rates. And when comparing car insurance rates, know that getting more free quotes will enable you to find the best rates. Not every company does online rate quotes, so it’s important to also get price estimates from the smaller companies as well.

Save with these money-saving discounts

Companies offering auto insurance do not advertise all disounts very clearly, so we researched some of the more common in addition to some of the lesser obvious discounts that you can inquire about if you buy auto insurance online.

  • Senior Citizens – Drivers over the age of 55 may qualify for a discount up to 10% for Highlander insurance.
  • Good Student Discount – A discount for being a good student may save you up to 25%. The discount lasts up to age 25.
  • Defensive Driver Discount – Completing a safe driver course could save 5% or more depending on where you live.
  • Anti-lock Brake Discount – Cars equipped with ABS or steering control are much safer to drive so companies give up to a 10% discount.
  • Safety Restraint Discount – Buckling up and requiring all passengers to use a seat belt can save up to 10 percent (depending on the company) on medical payment and PIP coverage.
  • Telematics Discount – Drivers that enable their insurance company to track where and when they drive remotely such as In-Drive from State Farm or Allstate’s Drivewise system could see a rate decrease as long as they are good drivers.
  • Discounts for Multiple Vehicles – Purchasing coverage when you have primary and secondary vehicles on one policy can reduce rates for all insured vehicles.

You can save money using discounts, but most discount credits are not given the the whole policy. Some only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like collision or personal injury protection. If you do the math and it seems like you can get free auto insurance, insurance companies wouldn’t stay in business.

Do I need special coverages?

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there isn’t really a one size fits all plan. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s so this has to be addressed. For example, these questions can aid in determining if your insurance needs would benefit from professional advice.

  • Are split liability limits better than a combined single limit?
  • How many claims can I have before being cancelled?
  • Does car insurance cover theft of personal property?
  • How can I get my company to pay me more for my totalled car?
  • When should I remove comp and collision on my 2001 Toyota Highlander?
  • Am I covered if I break a side mirror?
  • What is no-fault insurance?
  • Does my 2001 Toyota Highlander need full coverage?
  • How can I force my company to pay a claim?

If you’re not sure about those questions but a few of them apply, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, fill out this quick form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Insurance coverage options for a Toyota Highlander

Knowing the specifics of your policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on most insurance policies.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and damage to your Toyota Highlander.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Normally these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Coverage for medical expenses

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses like rehabilitation expenses, X-ray expenses, chiropractic care, pain medications and dental work. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Auto collision coverage

Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Highlander resulting from a collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers claims such as crashing into a ditch, rolling your car, colliding with another moving vehicle, sideswiping another vehicle and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Coverage for liability

Liability coverage will cover damage that occurs to people or other property that is your fault. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage pays for claims like funeral expenses, repair costs for stationary objects and attorney fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.

Comprehensive insurance

This coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, vandalism, rock chips in glass, hitting a deer and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
