A full coverage

policy in College Station, TX costs about $85 per month, while liability-only coverage averages about $33 monthly. While this is lower than the average cost of insurance in

How much does car insurance cost in Texas? 

Jerry
has helped thousands of drivers in the Lone Star State find affordable coverage, and here’s what we’ve learned in the process:
  • Texas drivers pay an average of $1,565 per year or $130 per month for full coverage. A liability-only policy averages about $636 per year and $53 per month.
  • Drivers in College Station pay about 14% less than the statewide average—$1,345 annually or $112 monthly for full coverage and $554 per year or about $46 per month for liability coverage.
You may save a few hundred dollars upfront by opting for
minimum coverage
, but it could wind up costing you thousands in the long run. Texas’s minimum coverage requirements don’t include high enough property damage and bodily injury liability limits to ensure you’re financially and legally protected if you cause a serious accident—and they include no provisions to pay for damage to your own vehicle.
To make sure both you and your car are fully protected in case of an accident, you’ll need a
full coverage car insurance policy
.
Texans pay significantly less than the
national average for car insurance
, but, like drivers across the country, they, too, have seen record premium increases over the last few years. One of the main culprits driving increases is natural disasters.
Texas has the dubious honor of being ranked first in the nation for frequency and variety of natural disasters. 1 This coupled with nationwide post-pandemic economic stresses and increased vehicle repair costs have led to a 26% increase in insurance costs in the last two years. 2

The best car insurance companies in College Station

No single car insurance company will be the cheapest option for every driver or fit every driver’s insurance needs. The primary reason is that every customer gets different
car insurance quotes
based on their profile—so the most affordable company differs for everyone. 
Jerry conducted the largest insurance survey in the country to help drivers better compare the cheapest car insurance companies. While big-name carriers like
GEICO
and
State Farm
got mixed reviews for policy cost and customer service, smaller insurers like
Aspire Advantage
and
National General
came through with the highest ratings from actual customers.
