Rates For Men Vs Women
Our experts analyzed the profiles of drivers who were 25 and single and 40 and 60-years old and single to come up with these comparison averages. As you can see, women pay a lot less on average in Missouri, but here is where you can find the cheapest coverage.
In addition to age and gender, auto insurance companies consider factors like your marital status, credit score, and driving record when assigning your rate. If you’re having trouble finding affordable car insurance because of a poor credit history or driving record, make sure to ask about insurance discounts when you’re comparison shopping for auto insurance quotes. Insurance for drivers in the military is usually offered at a discounted rate, and you might also find a good student discount to bring down teen car insurance rates. Many companies also give you a deal for bundling your auto policy with another policy, like homeowners or life insurance. These discounts can bring down your insurance costs considerably.

What are the most popular Missouri car insurance companies?
Allstate is the second cheapest auto provider in Missouri, so why is it the ninth most popular? That’s what this section is all about. Market share, or what you can look at as a company’s popularity, tells us the percentage of customers a company has compared to competitors. While State Farm has about one quarter of all insured Missouri drivers on their policies, Allstate only have a measly 4% of the population.
But why could this be? This is the question to ask here. When you’re looking for a car insurance company, you don’t just want to go for the cheapest option. You want to pick the company that has the best of everything. It could be that people are paying more for State Farm, American Family, and Progressive because they offer something worthwhile like customer service or coverage options.
Take a look at the market share when you’re searching for auto coverage so you can find clues to things you might not otherwise be aware of.
|Market Share Percent|
|Auto Club Enterprises||4.87|
What companies have the best customer satisfaction ratings?
A “complaint index” shows the percentage of customers who complain compared to a company’s market share.
A company like Aegis or Hanover are examples of great scores because their complaint indexes are zero. Based on our research, State Farm has an abysmal score in Missouri of 23. That means that less people are complaining at Aegis and Hanover and a lot more have something bad to say about State Farm.
Make sure to look this table over to see if the car insurance provider you’re interested in has a low complaint index. It means you might be happier with its service since more of its policyholders are content.

|United Fire & Casualty||$5,588,617||1||0.18|
|Cincinnati Ins. Co||$5,942,567||2||0.34|
