MoneyGeek collected average car insurance rates for a 40-year-old male driver in Killeen with a full coverage policy, in accordance with our methodology.

A full coverage policy protects your car from damage with comprehensive and collision insurance, which is why it’s more valuable than minimum coverage and costs more.

  • Comprehensive insurance: protects you against risks, such as theft and non-collision damage
  • Collision insurance: covers damage to your car in an at-fault collision

Depending on the value of an older car, a minimum coverage or liability-only policy may be a better option since a full coverage policy could cost more than the car’s value.

Cheapest Car Insurance in Killeen for Minimum Coverage

If you want affordable car insurance in Killeen, choose a minimum coverage policy. On average, the cheapest insurers for minimum coverage in Killeen are:

  • Farmers: $363 per year
  • State Farm: $371 per year

If you have a military background, USAA offers the cheapest minimum coverage policy in Killeen at roughly $312 annually.

The General, the most expensive minimum coverage policy, costs up to $641 more per year than Farmers, the cheapest, open-to-all option.

Although minimum coverage costs less, the trade-off is that you do not get comprehensive and collision coverage and your liability limits are low, so you are not fully protected.

Use the table below to see how rates vary depending on liability coverage.

Cheapest Minimum Liability Car Insurance in Killeen
State Minimum

A state minimum coverage policy in Killeen only carries the minimum liability limits required by Texas, 30/60/25. The policy is the most affordable option, but you get the least protection in an accident and may pay out of pocket.

For example, if you cause an accident where the property damage is $35,000, your state minimum policy only covers $25,000, meaning you incur out-of-pocket costs of $10,000.

Texas Minimum Liability Requirements

  • Item
    Description
  • Bodily Injury and Property Damage
    $30,000 per person, $60,000 per accident and $25,000 for property damage. A more protective level is 100/300/100.

Cheapest Car Insurance in Killeen if You Have Driving Violations
