How much does car insurance cost in Oregon?

How much car insurance costs in Oregon depends on many rating factors. Variables such as age, driving record, claims history, chosen insurance company, coverage types and levels, the car you drive and the Oregon ZIP code you live in impact your cost of car insurance.

Although full coverage car insurance is generally more expensive than minimum coverage, it can offer more financial protection if you’re in an accident. Knowing the difference between full and minimum coverage, not just in price but in coverage protection, and how companies differ in premium based on rating variables can help you when shopping for the best coverage and price for your insurance needs.

How to save on car insurance in Oregon

Car insurance rates in Oregon are not overly expensive, but there are ways you may be able to save some money and earn a lower premium. Here are some suggestions for getting cheap car insurance:

  • Get several quotes: To find the best rate for your coverage preferences, get multiple car insurance quotes from different carriers. This way, you can evaluate coverage options and pricing to find the right carrier.
  • Improve your credit score: If you have a poor credit score, you may pay a higher car insurance premium. Raising your credit score, even by a few points, can help you get a lower rate.
  • Pay your premium in full: Paying your premium upfront and in full may help you get a cheaper rate, if you can afford the out-of-pocket cost.
  • Take a defensive driver course: Many insurance companies offer a discount to drivers who complete an approved defensive driver or driver safety course.
  • Raise your deductibles: Increasing your comprehensive and collision deductibles could lower your premium. Just make sure you can afford a higher deductible if you need to file a claim.
  • Switch carriers: If you find a different insurance company that can offer you a better deal, you can usually switch carriers during your policy period.

Methodology

Bankrate utilizes Quadrant Information Services to analyze 2022 rates for all ZIP codes and carriers in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Rates are weighted based on the population density in each geographic region. Quoted rates are based on a 40-year-old male and female driver with a clean driving record, good credit and the following full coverage limits:

  • $100,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $300,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $50,000 property damage liability per accident
  • $100,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury per person
  • $300,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury per accident
  • $500 collision deductible
  • $500 comprehensive deductible

To determine minimum coverage limits, Bankrate used minimum coverage that meets each state’s requirements. Our base profile drivers own a 2020 Toyota Camry, commute five days a week and drive 12,000 miles annually.

These are sample rates and should only be used for comparative purposes.

Age: Rates were calculated by evaluating our base profile with the ages 16-60 (base: 40 years) applied. Depending on age, drivers may be a renter or homeowners and on their parent’s or their own policy. Age is not a contributing rating factor in Hawaii and Massachusetts due to state regulations.

Incidents: Rates were calculated by evaluating our base profile with the following incidents applied: clean record (base), at-fault accident, single speeding ticket and single DUI conviction.
