Cheapest Car Insurance in Burlington by Coverage Amount

The cost of car insurance in Burlington and elsewhere depends on how much coverage you purchase. A policy that only meets the state’s minimum requirements, for example, costs $412 per year on average. If you wish to buy a full coverage policy, you will pay around $812, which is $400 more.

Vermont Minimum Liability Requirements

  • Item
    Description
  • Bodily Injury and Property Damage
    $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident and $10,000 for property damage. A more protective level is 100/300/100.
  • Uninsured Motorist
    $50,000 per person, $100,000 per incident and $10,000 for property damage. The minimum coverage may not be enough if you're in a serious accident.

There are differences in terms of the level and type of coverage across different insurance plan options. For example, Vermont Mutual provides both liability-only and full-coverage 50/100/50 plans that cover $50,000 worth of medical expenses, totaling $100,000 for each vehicle, with $50,000 to repair property damage.

Their full-coverage policy is an average of $220 more expensive than the liability-only policy. You can also get a 100/300/100 full-coverage plan by spending around $273 more than the state minimum expense. Keeping the benefits of the extra coverage in mind, these might be worthwhile investments for you.
