Car insurance after going to college

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Savannah on December 26, 2020

I have Nevada car insurance, but I’m moving to California for college. I’ll return to Nevada when school's out. Where am I supposed to get insurance?

You are able to keep the insurance in Nevada because your primary residence is still going to be located in that state. You just want to make sure you carry the correct limits on your policy. California has a minimum limit for your bodily injury of 15/30 ($15,000 for injury or death to one person; $30,000 for injury or death to more than one person) and $5,000 for property damage. As long as your limits are above that amount, you are fine to keep your Nevada policy.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
