Washington state recorded 86,717 traffic accidents in 2023, of which 709 were fatal.[1] That comparatively lower fatality rate, and a modest population density, likely contribute to the state's relatively affordable car insurance rates.

Full coverage car insurance in Washington averages $199 per month, and liability-only policies average $89. By comparison, the national averages are $210 and $103, respectively.

Your actual rates may be lower or higher than average, though, based on your age, gender, driving history, vehicle make and model, and other factors, so it's a good idea to compare quotes to find the best coverage for your needs.

Quick Facts
  • Average car insurance rates in Washington state are on par with national averages.

  • Alcohol was a factor in 5,441 crashes in Washington during 2023, according to Washington State Department of Transportation data.

  • State Farm, USAA, and GEICO are the cheapest car insurance companies in Washington state.

How Insurify’s experts used internal proprietary data to rate top auto insurers

Data scientists at Insurify analyzed more than 40 million real-time auto insurance rates from the company’s partner providers across the United States to compile the car insurance quotes, statistics, and data visualizations displayed on this page. The car insurance data includes coverage analysis and details on drivers’ vehicles, driving records, and demographic information.

Quotes for Allstate, Farmers, GEICO, State Farm, and USAA are estimates based on Quadrant Information Services’ database of auto insurance rates. With this information, Insurify is able to offer drivers insight into how companies price their car insurance premiums.

The data included on this page represents averages across all ages, genders, credit scores, and Washington driver profiles.

How to shop for the best car insurance in Washington

Drivers should consider a company’s financial stability, prices, coverage options, and more when they shop for insurers in Washington.

“When shopping for insurance coverage, we recommend consumers look for the most robust coverage for the best price,” says Mark Friedlander, director of corporate communications at the Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I). “It’s also important to consider an auto insurer’s financial stability and customer service record. You want to make sure your insurer has the ability to pay claims and will quickly take care of you when you suffer a loss.” 

Here’s how to get coverage that meets your needs and keeps your wallet happy:

  1. Assess your coverage needs. Determine what coverage you need based on your car’s value and your driving habits.

  2. Compare rate quotes. Get quotes from multiple insurance companies and compare them to find the best rates and coverage.

  3. Check the company’s financial stability. Look up the company’s financial ratings to ensure it’s financially stable and able to pay out claims.

  4. Research the company’s reputation. Read customer reviews and check the company’s ratings with organizations like J.D. Power and Trustpilot.

  5. Review discounts. Review discounts the company offers to help lower your premiums.

  6. Understand policy details. Review the policy carefully to make sure you understand what your coverage includes and what it doesn’t.

How to get the cheapest car insurance in Washington

Several factors can influence the cost of car insurance in Washington, including your driving history, the type of car you drive, where you live, and your credit history.[2]

Here are some tips to help you get lower premiums:

  • Shop around. Gather quotes from multiple insurance companies to find the best rates.

  • Adjust coverage limits. Consider adjusting your policy limits, deductibles, and add-ons to find a balance between affordability and protection.

  • Look for discounts. Ask about discounts for good driving habits, vehicle safety features, and bundling policies.

  • Maintain good credit. Keeping a good credit score can often lead to lower insurance rates.

  • Drive safely. Avoid accidents and traffic violations to maintain a clean driving record.

  • Consider a cheaper vehicle. Driving an older-model car can be less expensive to insure.

Minimum car insurance requirements in Washington

All motor vehicles operating or parked on Washington’s roads must carry insurance. You must carry proof of insurance in your car at all times and have the proof available when:

  • Law enforcement requests it

  • Renewing vehicle registration

  • The vehicle is involved in a car accident

The minimum liability insurance requirements for private passenger vehicles in Washington are:[4]

Coverage TypeMinimum Amount
Bodily injury (per person)$25,000
Bodily injury (per accident)$50,000
Property damage$10,000

“These minimums are on par with many other states but can leave you financially vulnerable if you are involved in a serious at-fault accident,” says Friedlander. “For a much greater level of protection, insurance professionals recommend limits of $100,000 per person, $300,000 per accident, and $100,000 for property.”

Liability-only vs. full-coverage insurance in Washington

Washington requires drivers to have minimum liability auto insurance to cover damages or injuries they might cause to others. Choosing a liability-only policy may make sense if you have an older car, are on a tight budget, or have a solid emergency fund to pay for repairs or replacement costs out of pocket.

To increase your financial protection, consider full-coverage insurance. It includes collision for damage an accident causes to your vehicle as well as comprehensive coverage for theft, vandalism, or natural disasters. Full coverage is a good choice when you have an expensive or new car, are financing or leasing the vehicle, or just want peace of mind.

Here’s a look at the cheapest auto insurance in Washington by policy type.

Washington car insurance rates by driving and accident history

Driving history can greatly affect car insurance costs. If you receive speeding tickets, have a driving under the influence conviction, or have an at-fault accident, your insurance rates can go up because you present a higher risk to the insurance company.[5] In Washington, an at-fault accident can increase your rates by 43% and a DUI can increase your rates by almost 100%, so it’s in your best interest to avoid violations and collisions.

Here’s a look at average monthly quotes for the cheapest liability-only car insurance in Washington based on driving and accident history.

SR-22 insurance in Washington

Following a conviction, failure to pay judgments, or being involved in an accident, you might need to carry SR-22 insurance. However, it isn’t a policy type — it’s a certificate of financial responsibility that proves you meet the state-minimum liability requirements. You typically need to have the form on file with the state for three years starting on the day you reinstate your license.[6]

If you need SR-22 coverage in Washington, you can find it at GEICO, State Farm, and Nationwide.

Washington car insurance quotes by credit tier

Car insurance companies in Washington can use credit history to set rates. Your credit-based insurance score determines how likely you are to file a claim. Excellent or good credit scores mean fewer claims, while poor credit scores indicate a higher risk to the insurance company.

“Drivers with lower scores tend to have a higher risk of at-fault accidents. So, the higher your score, most likely the better your rate will be,” says Friedlander.

Car insurance quotes in Washington cities

Car insurance rates can change depending on where in Washington you live. A city’s population density, vehicle crime rate, and accident statistics can influence your premiums. The most expensive cities for car insurance typically have more people, more crime, and more accidents.

The table below illustrates average monthly car insurance rates in Washington state cities.

Washington car insurance rates by driver age

Age is another significant rating factor auto insurers use to determine the cost of your coverage. Younger drivers pay higher rates, as they tend to have more accidents. Fatal crash rates are almost 200% higher for teen drivers than drivers aged 20 and older, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). As you age, your risk and rates generally decrease.

Here’s how age can affect insurance rates in Washington.
