How to get and keep the cheapest car insurance in Omaha

Finding the cheapest car insurance in Omaha may be one task on your financial to-do list, but keeping the great rates once you lock them in may also take some work. You may want to keep the following in mind as you try to maintain affordable rates for car insurance.

  • Compare multiple providers. Car insurance companies weigh rating factors differently when calculating premiums, so your rates may vary substantially between providers. Comparing quotes from a few different carriers may help you find the lowest rates for your circumstances. Many insurance professionals recommend shopping around before your policy renews, especially if you’ve experienced a big life change, like buying a new car.
  • Keep a clean driving record. Car insurance companies consider your driving record when calculating rates, and drivers with tickets or accidents typically pay higher rates. Maintaining a clean driving record may help keep your rates steady over time and could net you additional savings if you participate in a telematics program or your carrier offers a safe driving discount.

Frequently asked questions

    • The best car insurance company is different for every driver. The best company for you likely depends on your coverage needs, personal rating factors and company preferences. You may want to spend some time researching insurance providers and comparing quotes to figure out which company can offer you the lowest rate for the types and amounts of coverage you want.
    • Most large car insurance companies offer online quotes with just a few simple inputs. However, if you want to work with a smaller regional carrier, you may need to contact the company over the phone or in person to get a quoted rate.
    • The average annual cost of car insurance in Omaha is $629 for minimum coverage and $2,040 for full coverage insurance. This works out to an average monthly cost of $52 for minimum and $170 for full coverage. As a point of comparison, the average cost of car insurance in Nebraska as a whole is $516 per year for minimum coverage and $1,994 per year for full coverage. Your own Omaha car insurance rate will vary from these averages based on a range of factors that are unique to you and your situation, including your age, credit history and driving record, as well as your car’s age, make and model.
    • Like most states, Nebraska requires drivers to carry a certain minimum amount of car insurance in order to drive on public roads legally. This amount is 25/50/25, which translates as follows:
      • $25,000 in bodily injury liability per person per accident
      • $50,000 in bodily injury liability total per accident
      • $25,000 in property damage liability per accident
      The state also requires drivers to have 25/50 of uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, which helps pay for injuries or damage if you are involved in an accident with someone who does not have insurance, or does not have enough to cover the total costs. It’s important to note that insurance experts generally suggest that you purchase more than the minimum required amounts if you are able to afford it, since the costs of a serious accident could mount up quickly and end up being higher than your policy’s maximum limits.

      • $500 collision deductible
      • $500 comprehensive deductible
