Best car insurance companies in Florida

Florida drivers pay a high average premium rate for their auto insurance. According to data sourced from Quadrant Information Services, the average cost for insurance in the Sunshine State is $1,091 for state-mandated minimum coverage, while full coverage, which includes collision and comprehensive insurance, costs an average of $3,462. This is considerably higher than the national averages of $637 and $2,299 and places Florida as one of the most expensive states for car insurance, along with New York and Louisiana. Multiple factors impact these average rates, including the increasingly common severe weather patterns in the state, as well as the high numbers of uninsured motorists. Because of these factors, some insurers will not write policies for Florida drivers.

Bankrate’s insurance editorial team understands that while affordable premiums are essential, they aren’t the only consideration when looking for the best car insurance policy. As such, we also review third-party scores issued in the J.D. Power 2023 U.S. Auto Insurance Study, along with coverage options, mobile accessibility and more, and factor these and other data points into our proprietary Bankrate Score, which has a possible total of 5.0 points. Based on our findings, State Farm, Geico, Progressive and Allstate offer some of the best car insurance in Florida.

How Bankrate chose the best car insurance companies in Florida

To find the best auto insurance in Florida, we began by reviewing 2024 quoted annual premiums from Quadrant Information Services for the largest car insurance companies by market share in the state. Because price is just one factor when shopping for car insurance, we also considered coverage options, discounts, digital assets and third-party ratings from J.D. Power and AM Best.

We compiled these factors into a Bankrate Score, which uses a scale of 0.0-5.0. The higher a company’s Bankrate Score, the higher that company ranked in each category. By combining numerous facets of each carrier into a single Score, we aim to make your research for car insurance companies more manageable.

How to find the best car insurance in Florida

Many drivers likely want to be covered under the best Florida car insurance company they can find. Since every driver’s needs are different and can depend on factors like vehicle type and coverage requirements, finding the best carrier largely depends on what aspects of auto insurance you choose to prioritize. However, you can take some steps to help you in your search.

New

  • Farmers Insurance and AAA Insurance both announced in 2023 that they were pulling away from the Florida market. Violent weather patterns, fraudulent insurance claims and other factors have made Florida a challenging market for insurers.
  • Like the rest of the nation, car insurance costs are rising for drivers in Florida, with major insurance providers filing for rate increases several times in 2023 and 2024.
  • Insurance providers cite many reasons for requiring these rate hikes. The increase in distracted driving causing more frequent car crashes is one major factor.
  • Climate change has increased the frequency and severity of severe weather in the South, and auto damage from Hurricane Idalia is still being assessed by insurance companies.
  • Car theft is another factor impacting premium rates. Florida has the seventh highest rate of vehicle thefts in the U.S. Kia and Hyundai vehicles are particularly at risk for theft due to a social media trend showing how the cars can be started with a USB cable.

How much is car insurance in Florida?

The average cost of car insurance in Florida for a full coverage policy is $3,462 per year, and minimum coverage costs an average of $1,091 per year. Compared to the 2024 national average cost of car insurance, which is $2,299 per year for full coverage and $637 for minimum coverage, Florida drivers pay quite a bit more on average. In fact, Florida is one of the most expensive states in the nation for full coverage car insurance, according to Bankrate’s analysis. For instance, the average annual full coverage premium in Florida is 34 percent more their neighbor, Georgia, which comes in at $2,578 per year.

The higher-than-average premiums across Florida may be partly due to the state’s geographic location, with 1,350 miles of coastline (the most in the U.S.) and its resulting susceptibility to severe weather events such as tropical storms, hurricanes and even tornadoes. Florida also has a high population of uninsured drivers, with 20.4 percent of drivers estimated to be driving without insurance, according to 2019 data published by the Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I). All of these factors, especially when added to the state’s busy roadways, could be contributing to high insurance costs.

Methodology

Bankrate utilizes Quadrant Information Services to analyze May 2024 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 single, 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 2022 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.
