Best Cheap Cincinnati Car Insurance

Despite the potentially high cost of car insurance, insuring your vehicle is most likely required but also gives you several important benefits.

First, just about all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means you are required to buy specific limits of liability coverage in order to drive the car. In Ohio these limits are 25/50/25 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if you took out a loan on your vehicle, it's guaranteed your bank will have a requirement that you have insurance to protect their interest in the vehicle. If coverage lapses or is canceled, the bank will be required to insure your vehicle at a much higher rate and force you to reimburse them for the expensive policy.

Third, insurance safeguards both your assets and your vehicle. Insurance will pay for medical bills for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. Liability coverage, the one required by state law, also covers legal expenses if you are sued as the result of an accident. If you have damage to your vehicle as the result of the weather or an accident, comprehensive and collision coverage will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.

The benefits of buying enough insurance definitely exceed the price paid, especially with large liability claims. Despite what companies tell you, the average driver overpays as much as $800 each year so it's very important to do a rate comparison at every renewal to ensure rates are competitive.

Whether you pay cheap or expensive rates for auto insurance depends on a wide range of factors, but the average premium rate in Cincinnati is about $770 each year. On average, the rest of the U.S. pays roughly $1,200, so Cincinnati residents pay around $450 less each year than drivers in other states.

Auto insurance rates in Cincinnati are calculated based upon a lot of variables, and one of the larger determinants is the car, truck, or SUV you are insuring. The next table shows policy rates for the best selling vehicles insured in Cincinnati.
