Minimum insurance coverages for Texas drivers

Everyone who owns a private vehicle in Texas needs to carry a minimum level of insurance coverage. The States of Texas requires drivers to have at least $30,000 in protection for bodily injury liability per individual, $60,000 per accident and $25,000 for property damage liability.

How much does car insurance cost?

There are several factors that can be taken into account when insurance companies are calculating how much you’ll have to pay for your car insurance policy. Things like having a lot of traffic tickets and accidents will certainly drive up how much you’ll pay for monthly premiums. Just because you have to carry automotive insurance in Texas, doesn’t mean you have to pay full price. Here are a few things you can do to save yourself a little money on your monthly bills.

Be a safer driver – Staying out of trouble will certainly go a long way toward keeping the cost of insurance down. In fact, the longer you go without getting a ticket or filing an insurance claim could mean additional discounts down the road. Some companies use devices to track your driving habits that can directly lead to price breaks on your coverage.

It pays to be a team player – If you are a member of a professional organization, labor union or hobby club, you could be eligible for certain price breaks. A regular review of your coverages and policies with your licensed insurance agent will uncover these discounts.

Don’t hesitate to ask a Classic Kia Carrollton representative any questions you have about owning or maintaining any of your vehicles. We’re always here to help.
