Personalized Quotes to Get You the Cheapest Car Insurance in Orlando

Car insurance companies in Orlando calculate annual premiums by evaluating individual circumstances, such as age, car make and model, ZIP code, driving history, gender, marital status and credit score. As your circumstances change, so does the rate of your auto insurance. You may even be eligible for discounts and rebates.

For instance, a teen driver is more likely to pay higher premiums compared to a middle-aged individual. A 40-year-old male policyholder can get an annual average premium of $1,202 from GEICO. Meanwhile, an 18-year-old male will have to pay an average of $3,142 for a similar policy. The best way to get the most accurate rate is to compare personalized quotes regularly.

Cheapest Car Insurance in Orlando by Coverage Amount

In Orlando and elsewhere, one factor that majorly impacts how much you pay for your car insurance is the coverage level you choose. For example, in Orlando, a state minimum liability policy costs an average of $964. A full coverage policy with higher liability limits costs $1,862. That is a difference of $898.

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.

Car insurance companies in Orlando offer several different levels of coverage. The cheapest option is to get a state minimum liability plan, which costs an average of $546 per year from GEICO. However, you may want to purchase additional coverage. You can get a 50/100/50 liability-only or full-coverage plan, which will allow you to claim $50,000 for medical bills per person, with a limit of $100,000 per vehicle, as well as $50,000 for property damage.

If you choose full coverage, your own expenses in case of an accident will also be covered. If there is only a small difference between the two, then full coverage may be the better option. For example, MetLife’s 50/100/50 liability-only policy costs an average of $1,716 — add $73 and you can get a 50/100/50 full-coverage plan.
