Discounts applied include safe-driver, homeowner, claim-free, multi-policy, and multi-vehicle. Premium costs do not factor in specific Los Angeles garaging location which can impact coverage prices noticeably.

Since you would pay $250 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you normally go more than 13 months between claim filings, you would save more money if you choose the higher deductible.

Liability only or full coverage

The example below shows the comparison of Toyota Sequoia insurance prices with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The data assumes no accidents or driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, marital status is single, and no additional discounts are factored in.

When to switch to liability coverage only

There is no exact formula for dropping physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the yearly cost of full coverage is about 10% or more of the replacement cost minus the deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's assume your Toyota Sequoia claim settlement value is $5,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most you would get paid by your company is $4,000 after paying your policy deductible. If premiums are more than $400 a year for physical damage coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

There are some circumstances where buying only liability insurance is not in your best interest. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you have to carry full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not remove full coverage.

These discounts can reduce Toyota Sequoia insurance rates

Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, but there could be significant discounts to help offset the cost. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied at the time of quoting, but a few need to be specifically requested before you get the savings.

  • Anti-theft Discount - Cars that have factory anti-theft systems help deter theft and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
  • Waiver for an Accident - This one is not really a discount per se, but certain companies permit an accident before your rates go up as long as you don't have any claims before the accident.
  • College Student Discount - Kids who are attending college and do not have access to a covered vehicle may be able to be covered for less.
  • Military Discounts - Being on active duty in the military could trigger a small discount.
  • Professional Organizations - Affiliation with certain professional organizations could qualify you for a break on your next auto insurance statement.

It's important to understand that some of the credits will not apply to the entire cost. Most cut the price of certain insurance coverages like liability, collision or medical payments. Even though the math looks like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, company stockholders wouldn't be very happy.

The information below shows the comparison of Toyota Sequoia premium costs with and without discounts applied.
