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

Full coverage is more expensive than minimum coverage because of its value. It fully covers damage to your car with comprehensive and collision insurance plus liability.

  • Comprehensive coverage: covers loss, theft or damage of your vehicle outside of an accident.
  • Collision coverage: pays for repairs to your car in an at-fault collision.

With an older car, minimum coverage or liability-only insurance may be better if the cost of a full coverage policy is more than your car’s worth.
