As stated in our methodology, the average prices used by MoneyGeek are for a sample 40-year-old male driver with full coverage car insurance in Aurora.

A full coverage policy is more than a state minimum policy but has liability and the following very valuable coverages that protect you from vehicle damage:

  • Collision insurance: pays for damages as a result of a collision
  • Comprehensive insurance: pays for vehicle damage that is not under collision and theft

If a full coverage policy costs more than your car’s value, you may want to get a state minimum policy or liability-only policy to save money.

Cheapest Car Insurance in Aurora for Minimum Coverage

Cheapest Minimum Liability Car Insurance in Aurora
State Minimum

In Illinois, you must have an auto policy with 25/50/20 in liability limits plus uninsured motorist of 25/50. This state minimum policy could help you save on your monthly bills, but the low coverage limits come with the risk of paying out of pocket in an accident.

For example, if your at-fault accident causes injuries to one person totaling $30,000, you are only covered for $25,000 and must pay the remaining $5,000.

Illinois Minimum Liability Requirements

  • Item
  • Bodily Injury and Property Damage
    $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident and $20,000 for property damage. A more protective level is 100/300/100.
  • Uninsured Motorist
    $25,000 per person and $50,000 per incident. The minimum coverage may not be enough if you're in a serious accident.
