Buying cheaper insurance for a Toyota Camry relies on a very complex rating algorithm that uses multiple factors such as the mileage of your daily commute, if you have a tendency to file claims, and violations on your driving record. Texas drivers pay on average $1,225 each year to insure their Camry, but that figure is based on a 30-year-old married female driver with full coverage and $100 deductibles.
It's more than likely you may not be 30 years old (or even female), possibly single instead of married, and you need different coverage limits than the sample rates. Having what appears to be a very minor change in rating variables or coverage information can result in a massive change in the cost of insurance for a Toyota Camry.
There is no perfect policy for every driver, so the best method for finding affordable rates for your Toyota is to do your own rate comparisons.
The specific model of Camry will most likely have an effect on the annual cost of coverage, so the cost to insure a Camry LE will be $214 lower than the price to insure the more well-appointed Camry Hybrid version, as shown in the prices below.

Driving violations and accidents
One of the best ways to score the most affordable car insurance rates in Texas for a Camry is to be a good driver and avoid traffic citations and accidents. The diagram below illustrates how violations and at-fault claims increase annual premium costs for different age groups. The premiums assume a married female driver, full physical damage coverage, $500 deductibles, and no discounts are taken into consideration.
In the prior example, the average cost of auto insurance per year with no violations or accidents is $1,730. Add in two speeding tickets and the average cost rises to $2,460, an increase of $730 each year. Now get two accidents along with the two speeding tickets and the annual cost of car insurance for a Toyota Camry increases to an average of $5,244. That's an increase of $3,514, or $293 per month, just for not driving attentively!
Low rates can quickly become overpriced
Texas car insurance rates are impacted by many factors which can substantially decrease or increase the price you have to pay for coverage. Improving your credit rating, increasing liability limits, or getting a ticket for running a stop sign can trigger rate changes resulting in some rates now being more affordable than before.
Not only that, but insurers amend pricing multiple times each year to help ensure profitability. An extended period of higher than normal claims may cause higher rates, while lower claim levels may produce lower-priced Camry insurance rates.
To illustrate this example, the data below shows the companies that have the cheapest car insurance in Plano, TX for a 40-year-old male driver with no prior claims, no tickets, and good credit. If we estimate prices based on his current situation, Travelers may offer the most affordable car insurance rates in Plano at $1,114 annually. This is $790 less than the average premium paid by Texas drivers of $1,904. USAA, Texas Farm Bureau, Germania Mutual, and Esurance are the remainder of the top five cheapest Plano, TX auto insurance companies.

State Farm now has the best price in Plano with Mercury, USAA, Nationwide, and Safe Auto also being competitive. This shows why it is critical to perform a complete rate comparison to get cheap auto insurance rates for a Toyota Camry.
