While Secura is a lesser-known name in the insurance world, likely due to its 13-state availability, it may still be a contender for your car and home insurance coverage. If you’re looking for cheap rates for a home and auto bundle, Secura could be a good carrier. The company might also appeal to you due to its dedication to social responsibility, which is impressive considering its smaller size.
Secura car insurance
Secura car insurance might be good for drivers who want to bundle their coverage with home insurance. The company sells its auto insurance as a package. You can choose from the Mile-Stone or Mile-Stone Gold. Both packages bundle auto and home coverage; you cannot buy just an auto policy with Secura. The packages have the advantage of a single deductible. If your car and home are damaged in the same event, you’ll pay just one deductible rather than both.
Secura car insurance is available in 13 states: Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.

As with auto insurance, Secura only sells home insurance via a package with auto, so it could be a good choice for those who want to bundle their policies. Coverage is available in the same 13 states where auto insurance is sold. Although Secura isn’t one of Bankrate’s choices for the best home insurance companies, you might still want to get a quote if you are looking for a cheap auto and home bundle.

Other Secura perks worth considering

Secura corporate sustainability

Secura also maintains a Sustainability Committee to help the company reduce its environmental impact.
Not sure if Secura is right for you? Consider these alternatives
Secura may be a solid choice for insurance, but that doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone. If you’re in the market for a new car or home insurance policy, you might want to consider these other companies:
- Erie: Erie is a regional provider that is available in many of the same states as Secura. With Erie, though, you can buy policies individually, so it might be a good choice if you aren’t sure if you want to (or aren’t able to) bundle your policies.
- Geico: Geico is available nationwide and is known for cheap rates. If you don’t live in one of Secura’s available states and are looking for cheap policies, Geico might be a good fit.
- Travelers: Travelers offers one of the more impressive suites of optional home insurance coverage types on the market. If you’re looking for a more robust home insurance policy, you might want to get a quote from Travelers.
Bankrate utilizes Quadrant Information Services to analyze 2021 rates for all ZIP codes and carriers in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Quoted rates are based on 40-year-old male and female homeowners with a clean claim history, good credit and the following 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 sample drivers own a 2019 Toyota Camry, commute five days a week and drive 12,000 miles annually.
Age: Rates were calculated by evaluating our base profile with the age 16 (base: 40 years) applied. Depending on age, drivers may be a renter or homeowner. Age is not a contributing rating factor in Hawaii and Massachusetts due to state regulations.
Incidents: Rates were calculated by evaluating our base profile with the following incidents applied: clean record (base), single speeding ticket and a single DUI conviction.
- Coverage A, Dwelling: $150,000, $250,000, $350,000, $450,000
- Coverage B, Other Structures: $15,000, $25,000, $35,000, $45,000

The homeowners also have a $1,000 deductible and a separate wind and hail deductible (if required).

Bankrate Scores primarily reflect a weighted rank of industry-standard ratings for financial strength and customer experience in addition to analysis of quoted annual premiums from Quadrant Information Services, spanning all 50 states and Washington, D.C. We know it is important for drivers to be confident their financial protection covers the likeliest risks, is priced competitively and is provided by a financially-sound company with a history of positive customer support.
To determine how well the best car insurance companies satisfy these priorities, third-party agency ratings from J.D. Power, AM Best, S&P, NAIC, and Moodys had the most impact on the companies’ Bankrate Scores. As price is a common consideration for drivers, we analyzed quoted premiums based on 40-year-old male and female drivers with a 2019 Toyota Camry. This profile, assessed across more than 35,000 ZIP codes in the U.S., provided a basis on which drivers may compare each provider.
While coverage options, insurer availability, affordability and customer experience are often the top priorities, Bankrate also analyzed each insurer’s online and mobile resources for policy management and claims handling. Insurance is rapidly evolving to keep pace with our digital world, so these aspects also carried weight in determining Bankrate Scores.
