When looking for car insurance, there are a lot of different things to keep in mind. Competitive rates and reliable customer service are a few good starting points.

This change applied to both new and current customers when they renew their policies. You’ll want to be aware of this before you renew your policy so you know how much more you have to pay. But even with the rate increase, it’s still lower than it was pre-COVID-19.
In July 2020, because less people were on the road due to the pandemic, State Farm had cut their insurance rates in Louisiana by 9.6%. As more drivers are heading back to the roads, there has been an increase in claims resulting in higher insurance rates.
If you’re a new driver, you don’t just want to pick the insurance company with the cheapest rate that doesn’t provide you with enough protection. The key to finding the right company is to make sure you know what policy you need and how to balance costs with coverage. A lot of factors like your age, driving record, and credit score can impact your insurance rates.
