Texas’s Cheapest Companies
We analyzed 25 cities, 10 driver profiles of people with minimum liability coverage, no violations, and low annual mileage and 30 insurance companies to find average premiums for average drivers. In Texas, insurance companies only give rates for people over and under 25, so depending on how old you are you could see different rates than the chart below. Regardless, rates usually do drop as you age and do so dramatically after you turn 25, so it’s something to keep in mind when looking at our research.

In Texas, insurance rates don’t always rise with city size. For example, average car insurance rates in Corpus Christi, Texas are higher than those in Austin.
Most Popular Texas Car Insurance Providers
Market share shows the percentage of customers a company has compared to competitors. In Texas, State Farm has the most customers at almost 20%. When you’re looking for an auto insurance provider, it’s important to study facts like these because normally when a lot of customers are doing business with a company, you can trust that there’s something they all like about it more than others.
|Premiums Written||Market Share|
|Home State Insurance||612,610||3.76|
|Texas Farm Bureau Mutual||606,959||3.72|
Customer Satisfaction Ratings
A “complaint index” records the percentage of customer complaints compared to a company’s market share. Zero is a very good score since it means little to no people are complaining. Anything over 1.0 is a little concerning. In general, you’ll want to stick with an auto insurance company like Markel or Travelers that have low complaint indexes. It’ll give you better odds of getting customer service and enjoying your experience with that company.
|# Of Complaints||# of Policies Written||Complaint Ratio|
|Central Mutual Insurance||0||19901||0|
|Texas Farm Bureau||12||361892||0.03|
|Federated Mutual Group||1||12777||0.08|
|State Auto Mutual||4||28588||0.14|
