Online insurance companies like Allstate and Progressive constantly blast consumers with ad campaigns and it is difficult to ignore the promise of big savings and do the work needed to find the best deal.

It’s a good habit to get comparison quotes as often as possible because prices go up and down regularly. Just because you found the best deal for Venza coverage at your last renewal there may be better deals available now. Forget all the misinformation about insurance coverage because I’m going to teach you the proper way to properly buy coverages and cut your premium.

How to find affordable insurance coverage

Effectively comparing insurance coverage prices can be a lot of work if you don’t utilize the most efficient way to do it. You can waste a lot of time discussing policy coverages with insurance agencies in your area, or you can stay home and use the internet to achieve your goal.

Most major companies take part in a program that allows shoppers to send in one quote, and each company returns a competitive quote based on that information. This eliminates the need for quotation requests for each company you want a rate for. To access this free quoting program, click to open in new window.

The only drawback to pricing coverage this way is you are unable to specify which insurance companies to get quotes from. So if you prefer to pick from a list of companies to compare prices, we put together a list of insurance coverage companies in your area. Click to view list.

Take whichever approach you prefer, but try to keep identical coverage information with each company. If you use unequal deductibles or liability limits it will be very difficult to find the best deal for your Toyota Venza. Slightly different limits can result in a big premium difference. And when price shopping your coverage, making a lot of price comparisons helps improve the odds of finding the best price. Not every company allows you to get rate quotes online, so it’s important to compare prices from those companies as well.

Drivers can save with these money-saving discounts

Companies that sell car insurance don’t always list every discount very clearly, so we researched some of the more common and also the more inconspicuous discounts that you can inquire about if you buy insurance coverage online.

  • Discounts for Cautious Drivers – Accident-free drivers can save as much as half off their rates for Venza coverage compared to accident prone drivers.
  • Discount for Good Grades – Being a good student could provide a savings of up to 20% or more. Most companies allow this discount up to age 25.
  • Senior Citizen Discount – Seniors can possibly qualify for a discount up to 10% for Venza coverage.
  • Driver’s Education for Students – Make teen driver coverage more affordable by requiring them to sucessfully take a drivers education course if offered at their school.
  • Paperwork-free – A handful of insurance companies provide a small discount shop insurance coverage on their website.
  • Homeowners Savings – Owning a home can earn you a little savings because maintaining a house is proof of financial responsibility.

It’s important to understand that most of the big mark downs will not be given to all coverage premiums. The majority will only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. So even though it sounds like it’s possible to get free car insurance, it’s just not the way it works.

A few companies that may offer policyholders many of the previously listed discounts include:

Why you might pay lower rates

Lots of things are used when you get a price on insurance. A few of the factors are predictable like a motor vehicle report, but other factors are less obvious such as your marital status or your financial responsibility.

The factors shown below are most of the major factors used by companies to determine prices.

  • More traffic equals higher prices – Choosing to live in small towns and rural areas can save you money when it comes to insurance coverage. Lower population means fewer accidents in addition to fewer liability claims. City drivers regularly have much more traffic and more severe claims. More time on the road means more chance of being in an accident.
  • Driving citations increase rates – Your driving citation history has a big impact on rates. Having a single chargable violation can bump up the cost by as much as thirty percent. Careful drivers pay lower auto insurance prices than their less careful counterparts. People who have dangerous citations such as reckless driving or DUI may need to submit a SR-22 or proof of financial responsibility with their state in order to prevent their license from being revoked.
  • Policy add-ons add up – There are quite a few optional add-on coverages you can purchase when buying insurance coverage. Things like rental car reimbursement, accident forgiveness, and extra life insurance coverage are probably not needed. They may seem like a good idea when buying your policy, but your needs may have changed so eliminate them to save money.
  • Increase deductibles and save – Comprehensive and collision coverage deductibles represent how much money you are required to spend out-of-pocket if a claim is determined to be covered. Protection for physical damage, also called ‘full coverage’, is used to repair damage to your car. A few examples of covered claims are collision with another vehicle, vandalism, and having a roll-over accident. The more expense you are required to pay out-of-pocket, the lower your rates will be for Venza coverage.

Do I need special coverages?

When choosing proper insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a cookie cutter policy. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs and your policy should reflect that. For example, these questions can help discover whether your personal situation may require specific advice.

  • What is roadside assistance coverage?
  • Am I covered if my car is in a flood?
  • What is PIP insurance?
  • Why do I only qualify for high-risk insurance?
  • How can I force my company to pay a claim?
  • Why do I need rental car insurance?
  • Can I afford to buy a different vehicle if my 2012 Toyota Venza is totaled?

If you’re not sure about those questions but one or more may apply to you, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier

Information about specific coverages

Understanding the coverages of car insurance can help you determine which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Below you’ll find typical coverages found on most car insurance policies.

Coverage for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for EMT expenses, hospital visits, chiropractic care and ambulance fees. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Collision coverage protection

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision can pay for claims such as sideswiping another vehicle, backing into a parked car, hitting a parking meter and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Comprehensive coverages

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims like a broken windshield, hitting a deer, damage from flooding, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Usually these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Liability auto insurance

Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. It protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show liability limits of 25/50/25 which means a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against claims like funeral expenses, bail bonds, medical expenses, pain and suffering and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.

Shop Smart and Save

We covered a lot of ways to lower your 2012 Toyota Venza insurance car insurance rates. It’s most important to understand that the more providers you compare, the higher the chance of saving money. Consumers may even find the best price on auto insurance is with a company that doesn’t do a lot of advertising. Some small companies can often provide lower premium rates in certain areas than their larger competitors like State Farm or Progressive.

As you quote insurance coverage, never skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. There are too many instances where someone dropped comprehensive coverage or liability limits and discovered at claim time that the savings was not a smart move. Your objective should be to find the BEST coverage at an affordable rate, but don’t skip important coverages to save money.
