Data rating is based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Ohio minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, homeowner, multi-policy, multi-vehicle, and safe-driver. Rate information does not factor in specific Toledo garaging location which can increase or decrease insurance rates substantially.

Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $250 deductible will cost in the ballpark of $11 more each month or $132 for a full year across all Chevrolet Cobalt models than requesting the higher $500 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $250 more if you file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to average at least 23 months between claims, you would come out ahead if you decide on a higher deductible. The table below shows how you can perform this determination yourself.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $78
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $67
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $11
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $11
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 23 months

One thing to note is that raising deductibles to save money means you will have to pay more of your own money when you have to file a claim. You need some money saved in order to pay more to get your vehicle repaired.

Take advantage of these nine premium slashing discounts

Insuring your vehicles can cost a lot, but there could be significant discounts that many consumers don't even know exist. Certain reductions will be credited when you purchase, but some must be requested specifically before they will apply.Car insurance discounts

  • Theft Deterrent - Vehicles that have factory alarm systems and tracking devices are less likely to be stolen and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
  • Driver Training Discounts - Participating in a course that instructs on driving safety can save you 5% or more if you qualify.
  • Active Military Service - Having a deployed family member could mean lower prices.
  • Telematics Data - Drivers that enable their insurance company to analyze when and where they use their vehicle by using a telematics device in their vehicle such as In-Drive from State Farm or Allstate's Drivewise system may see discounts as long as they are good drivers.
  • Government Employees - Simply working for the federal government may qualify for a discount when you quote Toledo car insurance but check with your company.
  • Life Insurance Discount - Larger car insurance companies have a discount if you purchase some life insurance too.
  • Sign Early and Save - A few companies allow discounts for buying a policy before your current Cobalt insurance policy expires. It can save you around 10%.
  • Good Student - Performing well in school may save as much as 25% on a Toledo car insurance quote. Most companies allow this discount up to age 25.
  • Discounts for Responsible Drivers - Insureds who avoid accidents can save as much as half off their rates than less cautious drivers.

You should keep in mind that most credits do not apply to the entire policy premium. The majority will only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. So when the math indicates adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies don't profit that way.

The diagram below visualizes the comparison of Chevy Cobalt insurance costs with and without discounts applied. The costs are based on a female driver, a clean driving record, no claims, Ohio state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $1,000 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with marriage, multi-car, multi-policy, safe-driver, homeowner, and claim-free discounts applied.

Large car insurance companies and the discounts they provide include:

  • Progressive offers discounts for online quote discount, online signing, homeowner, good student, and multi-policy.
  • GEICO may offer discounts for driver training, multi-policy, emergency military deployment, anti-lock brakes, good student, multi-vehicle, and military active duty.
  • State Farm offers discounts including good driver, student away at school, multiple autos, multiple policy, passive restraint, Steer Clear safe driver discount, and Drive Safe & Save.
  • Esurance has savings for claim free, defensive driver, online quote, homeowner, emergency road assistance, and multi-car.
  • The Hartford policyholders can earn discounts including driver training, air bag, vehicle fuel type, bundle, anti-theft, and good student.

It's a good idea to ask every company how many discounts you can get. A few discounts may not apply to policyholders in your state. If you would like to view car insurance companies with the best discounts in Toledo, click here.

It may be expensive, but it's not optional

Even though it can be expensive, paying for insurance is required for several reasons.

First, just about all states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to carry specific limits of liability protection in order to be legal. In Ohio 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 have a loan on your vehicle, almost all lenders will require you to buy insurance to guarantee payment of the loan. If coverage lapses or is canceled, the bank may buy a policy for your Chevy at an extremely high rate and require you to fork over the higher premium.

Third, insurance safeguards not only your vehicle but also your assets. Insurance will also pay for all forms of medical expenses that are the result of an accident. One of the most valuable coverages, liability insurance, will also pay for a defense attorney if you are sued as the result of an accident. If your Chevy gets damaged, comprehensive and collision coverage will pay to have it repaired.

The benefits of having insurance are definitely more than the cost, especially with large liability claims. The average driver in Ohio is overpaying over $800 each year so we recommend shopping around at every renewal to make sure the price is not too high.

If you need to find a good insurance agency, there are two types of agencies and how they differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Agencies in Toledo are either independent agents or exclusive agents depending on their employer. Both types of agents can handle insurance, but it is a good idea to know the difference in the companies they write for since it may influence the selection process.

Exclusive Agencies

Exclusive insurance agents write business for a single company such as Allstate, AAA, Farmers Insurance, and State Farm. Exclusive agents cannot give you multiple price quotes so always compare other rates. Exclusive agents are usually quite knowledgeable on their company's products which can be an advantage.

Specifics of your car insurance policy

Knowing the specifics of your car insurance policy can help you determine the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Insurance for medical payments - Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for chiropractic care, rehabilitation expenses, X-ray expenses, funeral costs and pain medications. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance - Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Chevy Cobalt.

Due to the fact that many Ohio drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (which is 25/50/25), their limits can quickly be used up. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.

Liability - This provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other's property or people by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person's injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged property.

Liability coverage protects against things such as emergency aid, structural damage, court costs and medical services. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford. Ohio state law requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/25 but drivers should carry higher limits.

The next chart shows why minimum state limits may not be enough.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) - This pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from getting keyed, fire damage, hitting a bird and vandalism. The highest amount you'll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle's value is low it's not worth carrying full coverage.

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

Collision insurance covers claims like rolling your car, crashing into a ditch and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. It's also possible to choose a higher deductible on your Cobalt to save money on collision insurance.
