Car insurance in Henderson, Nevada has average costs that fall in line with the state’s average of $2,245. The average cost of car insurance in Henderson is $1,056 for minimum insurance and $2,571 for full coverage, according to Bankrate’s 2021 study of quoted premiums. Despite the high cost, Nevada drivers are considered to be among the safest in the country. However, insurance companies may charge state drivers more partly due to the party-going nature of visitors, which can cost car insurance companies more in car crash settlements.

To help drivers find the best cheap options available to them, Bankrate partnered with Quadrant Information Services to assess rates from the most popular providers in the state by market share. Fortunately, you can achieve cheap car insurance rates that are lower than the state- and city-wide average if you know what factors to look for.

Geico

Geico’s average rates for minimum and full car insurance are considerably lower than all the other car insurance companies in Henderson. Part of the reason may be the 16 discounts available, which is far more than the number of discounts most insurance companies offer. However, going with the cheapest car insurance company in Henderson does not mean you have to sacrifice service. Current policyholders are generally pleased with the level of customer service they receive, as well as with the claims process, earning the company a score just one point under the industry average out of all ranked providers.

  • $25,000 per person for bodily injury liability
  • $50,000 per accident for bodily injury liability

Getting caught without car insurance could potentially cost you hundreds in fines. You may also have your driver’s license suspended. Depending on whether you financed your car, you may need more coverage.

The largest savings in car insurance could come from enrolling in drive-tracking programs. Downloading the app or installing the telematics device to track your safe driving could reduce your premiums considerably. You may also want to look into bundling your other vehicles or home/renters insurance with the same carrier to lower your rates.
