How Bankrate chose the best car insurance companies in Maryland

The best car insurance in Maryland for your needs may be tricky to assess if you’re not sure where to start. Bankrate made its selections after analyzing dozens of large and regional car insurance companies. We assessed carriers based on average premium data sourced from Quadrant Information Services as well as coverage availability and mobile app accessibility.

We also considered third-party ratings from agencies like AM Best for financial strength and J.D. Power for customer satisfaction. All of this was consolidated into our Bankrate Score for a maximum score of 5 out of 5 points. Using the Bankrate Score may be useful to get a quick impression of a company, and to compare a carrier with other auto insurance companies in Maryland.

How much is car insurance in Maryland?

When it comes to average full coverage car insurance, Maryland drivers pay roughly the same amount as the national average. On average, Maryland drivers pay $2,549 annually for full coverage, which is just 10 percent more than the U.S. average of $2,311. Minimum coverage tends to be significantly more expensive in Maryland, though, with an average annual premium of $935, which is 46 percent more than the national average annual premium of $640.

Average premiums in Maryland may be higher for a number of reasons. Maryland’s state minimum coverage includes uninsured motorists coverage, which isn’t included in many other states. The state has a five-year average of nearly 110,000 crashes per year, which could be considered high, especially when the state’s small geographic footprint is compared to much larger states.

Frequently asked questions

Methodology

Bankrate utilizes Quadrant Information Services to analyze the latest rates in June 2024 for ZIP codes and carriers in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Rates include the most recent approved rate changes filed by insurance companies that affect our profile. These revised rates are then weighted based on the population density in each geographic region so that policyholders can see the impact rates have in their areas. 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 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.
