Toyota RAV4 insurance cost by location

There’s a number of factors that affect the cost of your insurance premium, one of the biggest being your location.

To show the power of the postcode, here are some average quotes for a 30-year-old living in three different locations. The quotes are for a Toyota RAV4 Excel FWD Hybrid 2.5 VVT-i auto 5d.

  • Expensive: £1,208 (London SE1)
  • Average: £579 (Newcastle NE1)
  • Cheap: £619.46 (Galashiels TD1)

Which factors affect the insurance rate for my Toyota RAV4?

Along with your car’s insurance group, these three factors have the biggest impact on the cost of your insurance:

  • Engine type and capacity. As a general rule of thumb, the bigger the engine, the more you will pay for your car insurance. However, Toyota RAV4s are built with a 2.5-litre engine as standard so the size of the engine shouldn’t impact the cost in this circumstance.
  • Driver location. Insurers factor in the number of claims and the likelihood of theft or damage when calculating your insurance, and your location has a big impact on this. As an example, a 30-year-old in central London will pay £1,388 for insurance for a Toyota RAV4 Design AWD Hybrid 2.5 VVT-i auto 5d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £736.
  • Driver age. In terms of cost, your age is probably the most significant factor that insurers look at when calculating the cost of your insurance. The average 20-year-old driver in London could pay £25,331 for the Toyota RAV4 Dynamic AWD Hybrid 2.5 VVT-i auto 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £2,287.

However, there are other factors that can also impact the price of your premium. These include:

  • Your relationship status
  • Your credit history
  • Your job title
  • Your car’s safety rating, security and anti-theft precautions
  • Likelihood of theft
  • The model and age of your car
  • Your driving activity
  • Your driving history
  • No claim discount

How can I save on my Toyota RAV4 premium?

It’s a well-known fact that insuring a vehicle can be an expensive outlay. If you add this to additional costs such as car tax, petrol, MOTs, servicing and maintenance, it can cost a lot to be on the road.

Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to reduce your car insurance premium for your Toyota RAV4, and we’ve listed them below:

  • Drive safe. It may sound obvious, but having driving convictions on your record will make your premium more expensive.
  • Be economical about your car usage. You could save money on your insurance by not using your car as often. Opting for public transport or walking when you can will help keep your mileage, and premium, lower.
  • Pay annually rather than monthly. By paying annually, you won’t have to pay interest on monthly instalments.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer you make your car, the better your premium will be. By investing in extra safety features, your vehicle will be more secure and less of a risk to insure.
  • Shop around at renewal time. When it’s time for renewal, make sure you compare your options – you’ll be surprised at how much you could save by looking around for a cheaper quote.

Bottom line

The Toyota RAV4 is an exciting SUV, which provides a lot of comfort and power. It will cost slightly above the average rate to insure it, but the tips in this guide will help you cut your premiums somewhat.
