How much is my car insurance going to cost if I move to Louisiana?

I live in Florida and am about to move to Louisiana to be closer to family. I want to get full coverage car insurance. How much is it going to cost?

“I hope you have a safe move!
Generally, full coverage car insurance is about $1,674 per year in the USA. That comes out to about $139.50 a month.
But there’s so much more at play that can affect your rates, such as your:
  • age
  • credit score
  • driving record
  • zip code
  • car make and model
When you move states, you have to switch your insurance policy. Every state has different laws and different requirements. You have to do this before you can register the car with the state you’re moving to.
Because rates differ from state to state, it’s good to prepare for each state’s average. In Louisiana specifically, the cheapest minimum coverage is about $2,838. Full coverage on average is $4,942. This is some sticker shock, but you can find discounts and deals.
