Corpus Christi Car Insurance

Corpus Christi, Texas, is home to 326,590 Texans as of 2020, according to the US Census. This is a 7% increase from 2010. With the growing population leading to increasingly congested roads and almost a 20-minute daily commute time, keeping safe on the roads is essential. Texas requires Corpus Christi car insurance, but understanding your policy and ensuring you have adequate coverage is a personal responsibility that protects you and your assets financially.

What Types of Auto Insurance are There in Corpus Christi?

Most basic car insurance policies consist of 6 different coverage types; however, except for state requirements, you can opt in or out of the coverages to create a policy that best suits your needs. In Texas, the state requires that you have $30,000 in bodily injury liability coverage for each person in an accident, $60,000 in bodily injury liability coverage for each accident, and $25,000 for property damage per accident; this is often referred to as 30/60/25. The other main coverages on most standard auto policies include:

Type of CoverageDescription
Property Damage LiabilityPays for the damage you may cause to someone else’s property.
Bodily Injury LiabilityHelps you cover the cost of injuries of others involved in an accident you caused.

What is the Cost of Car Insurance in Corpus Christi?

The average cost of full coverage car insurance in Corpus Christi is $1,068.41 per year among TGS Insurance Agency customers. It is important to note that many factors determine the price of your premium. While many people know that insurers factor in the car they drive, their own driving record, and the coverages they select, some may be surprised to hear that factors such as gender, credit history, and marital status are also considered.

How Does Location Affect Car Insurance Rates in Corpus Christi?

Similar to homeowners insurance, location is an important factor in determining your auto insurance rates in Corpus Christi. If your neighborhood has a higher rate of theft than the neighborhood a few blocks down, your rates will be higher. If there is a higher than the average number of uninsured motorists in your area, your rates will be higher. If auto insurance companies identify anything in your area that might make your vehicle riskier to insure, you will see that reflected in your premium. Likewise, there are things you can do like parking your car in a garage or covered area versus the street that can help reduce your premium. Because carriers get so granular with their risks evaluations, rates can vary greatly- even within the same city.
