With billions of dollars spent on car insurance advertisements each year, it is interesting to see where the average cost of auto insurance in Illinois ranks compared to other states. The amount of money insurance companies charge is, or at least should be, tied to the costs they experience in each state. Based on that, one might expect to find a clear pattern, for example states with harsh winters or disproportionately large urban populations with higher rates; but no such pattern is revealed. That leaves one searching for other factors, such as each state’s laws, average jury settlements and competition.
Illinois is a state where a very large number of companies compete fiercely for Auto Insurance customers, this helps reduce the rates to among the lower quarter in the nation putting Illinois insurance rates at less than half of what they are in Louisiana. At Urban Insurance, our average cost of a policy is $788 per year, or 41% less that the average cost of a car insurance policy in Illinois.
