As detailed in MoneyGeek’s methodology, we used a sample profile for a 40-year old male driver to gather and evaluate auto insurance rates in Hialeah.

To ensure overall financial protection, drivers can get a full coverage policy that does not only protect them during accidents but also for any type of damages. A full coverage insurance is generally more expensive due to the following added coverage:

  • Collision Insurance: Protects the driver in case of a collision with another vehicle or a stationary object
  • Comprehensive Insurance: Protects the driver from damages other than a collision such as theft, vandalism, glass damage, natural disaster, etc.

For older car owners, it may be important to consider whether your full coverage premium is worth more than your car. In this case, a state minimum policy could be a better choice.

Cheapest Car Insurance in Hialeah for Minimum Coverage

In Hialeah and elsewhere, your choice of coverage level will affect the cost of your auto insurance. Hialeah drivers who buy a state minimum liability-only policy typically pay around $1,461 per year. Those who have a full coverage policy with higher liability limits pay an average of $2,812, which is $1,352 more.

Cheapest Minimum Liability Car Insurance in Hialeah
State Minimum

All Florida drivers are required to have state minimum liability-only auto insurance. While it’s the cheapest auto insurance option in Hialeah, the drawback is that you may have to pay substantially more out of pocket after an accident than higher premiums would have cost you.

For example, let’s say you're in an accident and the other driver’s total medical bills reach $25,000. You would be responsible for the difference between the insurer payout of $10,000 and the total amount owed. That’s $15,000 out of your pocket.

Florida Minimum Liability Requirements

  • Item
    Description
  • Property Damage
    $10,000 for property damage. A more protective level is 100/300/100.
  • Personal Injury Protection
    $10,000 per person.

Cheapest Car Insurance in Hialeah if You Have Driving Violations
