Average Georgia car insurance rates by city

Car insurance companies consider location-based factors when determining your premium. The number of claims filed in your city and ZIP code, crime rates, population density, and accident rates can affect your premium. Drivers in areas with a lot of filed claims will likely pay higher premiums for auto coverage.

Average Georgia car insurance rates by age

Your age can affect how much you pay for car insurance for several reasons. All drivers can have an accident, but the inexperience of teenage drivers presents a higher level of accident risk.[2] Inexperienced drivers may demonstrate risky driving behavior or fail to react successfully to avoid an accident. Drivers between the ages of 16 and 25 typically pay much higher rates than older drivers.

Older drivers between 35 and 70 have enough experience that they tend to benefit from steadily decreasing average rates. But senior drivers older than 70 may have slower reflexes or diminishing eyesight that makes reacting in hazardous situations harder. Insurers may increase rates again due to aging-related risk factors.

See what Georgia drivers in different age groups pay on average for car insurance below.

How gender affects car insurance rates in Georgia

Young male drivers tend to be more reckless and impulsive than young female drivers. For example, male drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 have a higher vehicle crash death rate than female drivers of the same age.[3]

It typically costs more to insure a teenage boy than a teenage girl for the same coverage level. As you age, however, average rates tend to even out a bit between men and women. Here are average monthly quotes for Georgia drivers by age and gender.

AgeMaleFemale

50$189$185

How your driving record affects car insurance rates in Georgia

Your driving record is a major factor insurers look at when determining your premium. Insurance companies try to predict the likelihood that they’ll have to pay out after a claim for policyholders.

Having incidents on your driving record — like a speeding ticket, at-fault accident, or DUI — demonstrates that you pose a higher risk than drivers with a clean record. The severity and frequency of traffic violations on your record play a role in how much you’ll pay for auto coverage. For example, having a DUI may even make you ineligible for coverage through some insurance companies.

On average, Georgia drivers with an incident on their record pay $269 per month for car insurance. Find the average quotes for coverage by driving record in the state below. Good drivers without incidents tend to pay the cheapest rates.

Driver RecordAverage Quote: Liability OnlyAverage Quote: Full Coverage
Clean record$136$249
With accident$194$356
With speeding ticket$182$334
With DUI$211$386

Companies typically assume that drivers with good and excellent credit have more financial stability and are less likely to file a claim than people with poor credit.

See average rates for car insurance by credit tier below. Drivers with excellent and good credit typically pay less than people with average and poor credit.

Methodology

Insurify data scientists analyzed more than 90 million quotes served to car insurance applicants in Insurify’s proprietary database to calculate the premium averages displayed on this page. These premiums are real quotes that come directly from Insurify’s 50+ partner insurance companies in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Quote averages represent the median price for a quote across the given coverage level, driver subset, and geographic area.

Unless otherwise specified, quoted rates reflect the average cost for drivers between 20 and 70 years old with a clean driving record and average or better credit (a credit score of 600 or higher).

Liability-only premium averages correspond to policies with the following coverage limits:

  • Bodily injury limits between state-minimum rates and $50,000 per person, $100,000 per accident
  • Property damage limits between $10,000 and $50,000
  • No additional coverage
Full-coverage premium averages correspond to the same bodily injury and property damage limits in addition to:
  • Comprehensive coverage with a $1,000 deductible
  • Collision coverage with a $1,000 deductible

Quotes for Allstate, Farmers, GEICO, State Farm, and USAA are estimates based on Quadrant Information Services’ database of auto insurance rates.
