How to get and keep the cheapest car insurance in West Palm Beach

Finding the cheapest car insurance companies in West Palm Beach is one thing, but keeping the cheapest rates is another. Keep the following in mind as you are searching for the most affordable rates — and trying to keep those rates in check:

  • Comparison is key. Drivers may not realize how much premiums can vary from one insurance provider to another. By shopping around and comparing multiple quotes, you more easily see which one offers the lowest rates for your needs, or has the best coverage options. Consider exploring car insurance quotes in West Palm Beach online from multiple providers every so often to ensure you are getting the best deal for your situation.
  • Safety matters. Maintaining a clean driving record and remaining accident-free not only keeps you safer on the road, it helps save money on your premiums. You can save by earning more favorable rates with your insurance provider, plus qualifying for additional discounts, such as claims-free and safe driving discounts.
  • Take advantage of discounts. Most insurers offer at least a few discounts, which can vary depending on the company. Usually, there are some that are easy to qualify for, such as a discount for vehicles that have safety features like airbags. There may also be discounts for safe drivers, members of certain organizations or the military, and discounts for paying your bill online or paying in full at the beginning of the coverage period. Review your policy annually to ensure that you are receiving all the discounts for which you are eligible.

Methodology

Bankrate utilizes Quadrant Information Services to analyze 2023 rates for 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 2021 Toyota Camry, commute five days a week and drive 12,000 miles annually.
