Whenever people write about car insurance, the word cheap shouldn’t be used anywhere in the article as a descriptor for auto insurance rates. Despite the oxymoron, cheap auto insurance for a Toyota Camry is almost non-existent. Don’t let that ruin your day, because we will tell you how you can quote and buy insurance that may not be cheap, but it is affordable.
The chances of finding affordable car insurance for a Toyota Camry in South Dakota is dependent upon a complicated equation that takes into consideration things like whether you use your Camry for business use, whether or not you are currently insured, and any prior driving citations you have received. South Dakota drivers on average pay around $650 a year to buy insurance for a Toyota Camry, but that amount is an estimate using rate data for a 40-year-old married male that includes comprehensive and collision coverage and $1,000 physical damage deductibles.
That rate won’t apply to everyone, because more than likely you are not a 40-year-old male, single instead of married, or maybe you just want different deductibles. Making minor changes in input factors can cause significant differences in the rate quoted for a Toyota Camry.
Auto insurance is not “one size fits all”, so the best way to find the cheapest insurance price for your Toyota is to do your own rate comparisons.
The specific model of Camry impacts the annual cost of coverage, so the price you pay to insure a Camry LE model will be $110 lower than the insurance cost for the more well-appointed Camry Hybrid trim level, as shown in the prices below.

The information below demonstrates how deductible levels can affect insurance costs when trying to find cheap insurance for a Toyota Camry. The costs are based on a married female driver, full physical damage coverage, and no discounts are factored in.
As shown above, a 50-year-old driver could pocket $272 a year by increasing from a $100 deductible up to a $500 deductible, or save $410 by changing to a $1,000 deductible. Youthful drivers, such as the Age 20 example, could save $672 every year by choosing a larger deductible amount.
If you do raise deductibles, it’s a good idea to have enough spare savings to enable you to cover the extra out-of-pocket expense associated with higher deductibles.
The recommended way to maintain cheap insurance for a Toyota Camry in South Dakota is to drive carefully and avoid traffic citations and accidents. The information below illustrates how violations and at-fault fender-benders impact insurance prices for each different age group.

In the prior example, the average cost of auto insurance in South Dakota per year with a clean driving record and no accidents is $1,967.
