How Much Drivers Like You Spend On Auto Insurance

Insurance companies price policies differently depending on age, gender, marital status, and more. That’s why we’ve gathered, calculated, and broken down auto quotes per company based on driver types—so you can get a better idea of what you might pay.

Cheapest For Men And Women

We’ve found that women across the country usually pay less than men for car insurance, but looking at the top three providers for both sexes, the data shows that men pay about 3% less in Georgia. This is only looking at gender– we looked at rates for female drivers age 19, 30, and 35 compared to male drivers age 19, 28, and 40. Because we know that older drivers typically pay less than younger drivers, this isn’t an apples to apples comparison.  Use it as a rough estimate for what you might pay as a man or woman driver in Georgia.

Whether you are a male or female driver can impact your rates as well.  While American National, Coast National, 21st Century, and AIG are the four cheapest for both sexes, the premiums can vary significantly.  Below you can see that Coast National has the biggest rate difference when comparing to drivers who are the exact same–except for their sex.

Cheapest For People 65 And Older

After examining annual rates for a 65-year old married couple, we found that American National is the most affordable option—at almost $700 less than Farmers Insurance. Here are the 15 cheapest companies for retired drivers based on our findings:

 Average Annual Rate
American National Financial$338.18
Shelter Insurance$486.55
21st Century$518.12

Married vs. Single Drivers

Do married drivers get a price break on car insurance? According to our research, yes.

We used annual rate data from 19 and 35-year old single men and women to help evaluate which company provides the cheapest insurance coverage for our single drivers. Based on our research, American National is $370 cheaper than the next most affordable option.

Next, we looked at married drivers, age 28 and 65, and found that American National Financial and Country Insurance were the two cheapest by almost $200. When we compared these rates to the rates of single drivers, our data concluded that some companies charge as much as 275% more for single drivers. Because our single driver cost analysis included driver profiles of teens, this could have played a part in the drastically increased rates.

Most Popular Georgia Car Insurance Providers

Market share shows the percentage of customers a company has compared to competitors. State Farm for instance, is Georgia’s number one seller of auto insurance based on the amount of customers it has in the state. Its average premium is also sky-high compared to other companies. That tells us that customers may be willing to pay more because of better service and coverage. Auto Owners is on the cheaper end of coverage, but has a really low market share. Again, this could be that you get what you pay for and customers in Georgia want more for their money.

We’ll let you decide what’s best for you, but here are the most popular auto insurance companies in Georgia based on market share:

 Market Share %Average Premiums
State Farm23.72$2,775.49
Allstate11.57$2,036.87
Progressive11.25$3,057.83
GEICO10.17$1,618.03

Georgia Farm Bureau3.3$1,335.53

Customer Satisfaction Ratings

When customers file a complaint, it goes into a “complaint index.” This shows the percentage of customers who complain about a company compared to its market share. The lower the number, the lower the ratio of complaints—and vice versa.

We discovered that Southern Farm Bureau has the state’s lowest complaint index while Liberty Mutual is much higher. That could lead you to believe that Southern Farm Bureau customers are more satisfied with their insurance provider than Liberty Mutual’s customers.

Below is how insurance companies in Georgia stack up when it comes to customer satisfaction.
