MoneyGeek collected average rates for a 40-year-old male driver in Aurora with a full coverage policy, per our methodology.

A full coverage policy is more expensive than a minimum coverage policy; however, it’s quite valuable since it includes collision and comprehensive coverage to protect against the cost of damage to your vehicle.

  • Comprehensive Coverage: It helps you repair or replace your vehicle after it’s stolen or damaged in an incident.
  • Collision Coverage: It covers the cost of vehicle repair in case of an at-fault accident.

With an older car, you may pay more than its value with a full coverage policy. Choose minimum coverage or liability-only to help save money on car insurance.

To understand how much higher liability coverage costs, see the table below.

State Minimum

In Colorado, you must have an auto insurance policy with 25/50/15 in liability limits. A minimum coverage policy is the cheapest in the state and budget-friendly, but with this policy, you might pay more after an accident.

For instance, if in case of an accident, the other party's medical bills cost $60,000, the insurance only covers $50,000. You bear the rest of the cost yourself.

Colorado Minimum Liability Requirements

  • Item
    Description
  • Bodily Injury and Property Damage
    $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident and $15,000 for property damage. A more protective level is 100/300/100.

  • Cheapest after an at-fault accident: State Farm, $1,396 per year
