Data assumes single male driver age 20, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $1,000 deductibles, and Indiana minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, and claim-free. Prices do not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can raise or lower rates significantly.

Full coverage versus liability only rates

Paying a lower price for auto insurance is important to most people, and one good way to save on the cost of insurance for drivers under 25 in Indiana is to not insure for full coverage. The diagram below compares auto insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The prices are based on no claims or driving violations, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

If the expense is averaged for all age categories, physical damage insurance costs $1,798 per year more than buying just liability insurance. That brings up the question when is the right time to remove full coverage. There is no definitive rule to stop buying physical damage coverage, but there is a general convention. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is more than around 10% of the vehicle's replacement cost less your deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.

There are some conditions where removing full coverage is not financially feasible. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should keep full coverage.

What aren't you shopping around?

Indiana auto insurance rates are determined by lots of factors that will increase or decrease the cost of your policy. Simply getting older, buying a home, or getting a speeding ticket may generate price changes resulting in some companies being more affordable than others. In addition, insurance companies change the rates they charge in Indiana as often as every quarter to adjust for gains or losses. A period of increased losses may cause additional price hikes, while profitable underwriting may cause more affordable Indiana car insurance rates.

For instance, the chart below analyzes the cheapest car insurance in Indiana for a 45-year-old female driver with no violations or accidents, and a high credit rating. If we look at prices based on her current situation, Travelers might offer the lowest car insurance rates in Indiana at $620 a year. This is $620 less than the average policy premium paid by Indiana drivers of $1,240. Cincinnati Insurance, USAA, Erie, and The Hartford are the rest of the cheapest Indiana auto insurance companies.

In this example, we will give the driver from the first example a couple of claims, poor credit, and a couple of points charged on her driving record. Due to the fact that each insurance company has their own formula to set premium rates, comparing prices could now result in a slightly different list of affordable companies as shown below.

Indiana Farmers Mutual now has the lowest car insurance rate in Indiana with Cincinnati Insurance, Auto-Owners, Motorists Mutual, and Nationwide now rounding out the top five. This illustrates why Indiana drivers need to shop around with many companies to find the cheapest car insurance rates for drivers under 25. Auto insurance prices can be determined by many factors and can change substantially, so the best price when you bought your policy may now be quite expensive.
