Drivers residing in large cities or metropolitan areas often face the challenge of finding inexpensive auto insurance rates. While rates in Las Vegas tend to be more expensive than smaller areas of Nevada, you can still save money on insurance by comparing quotes.

Cheapest car insurance in Las Vegas

The cheapest insurance policies are ones that only meet the minimum liability insurance requirements set by the state. Out of seven large and widely available insurers, Progressive had the lowest average quotes with an annual premium cost of $1,295. The second cheapest insurer, and a great alternative, is State Farm, which is around the same price as Progressive.

The cheapest insurer overall is USAA who provided quotes of $832 per year — or around $69 per month — on average. However, USAA will not be an option for many Las Vegas residents, as it is only available to current and former military members and their families.

Dense cities like Las Vegas tend to have a higher risk of accidents, making insurance prices more expensive than smaller areas like Reno or Dayton. This is why Las Vegas and its surrounding cities have insurance premiums that tend to be pricier than Nevada’s average.

Even though the minimum policy is the most affordable option for car insurance, the minimum requirements set by Nevada will not cover you for damages to your own vehicle and personal belongings.

Cheapest full coverage policy in Las Vegas

The insurer with the cheapest average premium for full coverage is State Farm. Progressive is the second most affordable but costs an average $300 more than State Farm.

Current and former military members should look into contacting USAA for coverage, as it has the cheapest average insurance quotes out of eight companies.

A full coverage policy can be more than double the cost of a minimum cost policy. However, it not only covers the state minimum insurance coverage but also includes collision and comprehensive coverage. Both coverages protect your vehicle when an accident causes damage.

  • Collision insurance: covers you in cases where your vehicle crashes into another car or a fixed structure, like a tree. These accidents are very common.
  • Comprehensive insurance: covers vehicle damage caused by “acts of God,” or factors out of your control.

Ask yourself

If the current value of your car is greater than the cost of adding full coverage plus a deductible, we recommend buying full coverage.

vehicle's current value > cost of adding full coverage + deductible

Cheapest insurance for young drivers looking for full coverage

Age is another aspect of your driver profile that will have a major impact on your insurance quote. A young and inexperienced driver is more likely to be in a car accident and is seen as a greater risk for insurers.

The cheapest insurers are State Farm and USAA, with average annual rates of $7,855 and $4,677, respectively. The next best option is GEICO, which is nearly $1,000 more expensive than State Farm, at an average cost of $8,650.

Unfortunately, if you're a young driver, you will often be quoted extremely high rates no matter how much you shop around. However, there are a few options to consider before you decide on an insurer.

One of the best ways to save is by asking your parents if you can stay on their policy. Having a combined or multicar insurance policy costs more than having a single policy but this will be much cheaper than having two separate policies.

Another step is to ask insurers about discounts. Companies offer discounts for a number of things including completing a defensive driving course, having cameras in your car or having a good driving record. Some companies even have discounts for getting good grades in school.

Cheapest full coverage insurance after an accident

An accident on your record has the potential to increase your annual premiums by hundreds or even thousands of dollars. State Farm and USAA had the lowest premium increases following an accident. These two insurers were the only companies from our study that increased annual costs by less than $1,000 following an accident.

If you are looking for an alternative to State Farm, another option is to research each insurer’s discount and forgiveness policies. Certain insurers have accident forgiveness or good driver discounts.

An important thing to note is that insurance companies can define what is and isn’t an accident in different ways, so depending on the type of accident, insurers may alter the way they change your rates.

Best auto insurance company, according to customer feedback

The quality of an insurer is based on not just the price but also the service. The process of filing a claim can be simple and quick or drawn out and unnecessarily complicated depending on which insurer you select. Any accident is stressful, and having an insurance company that will respond to all your questions and guide you through the claims process can be a massive load off your back.

The insurers in Las Vegas with the best customer service, measured by frequency of complaints, are State Farm and Travelers.

The Complaint Index is drawn from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). A higher complaint index means that the company received more negative feedback. The national median index is 1.0.

Minimum car insurance requirements in Las Vegas, Nevada

Nevada drivers are required to have auto insurance in order to legally operate a vehicle on the road. The required coverages are bodily injury liability and property damage liability. Being caught driving without insurance can result in fines and possibly license suspension.

Insurance coverageMinimum requirements
Bodily injury liability$25,000 per person / $50,000 per accident
Property damage liability$20,000 per accident

Bodily injury liability, otherwise known as “third-party” insurance, reimburses other drivers for accidents where you are at fault. It does not cover medical costs of your own injuries.

Property damage liability covers the financial liability costs in instances where your accident causes damage to another person’s property. It will not cover damages to your own car or property.

You can purchase additional coverage if you feel that the minimum policy is insufficient for your needs. Drivers with new or expensive vehicles are encouraged to invest in additional protection to protect the value of their car.

Methodology

ValuePenguin analyzed auto insurance data collected from eight insurance companies in Las Vegas. Unless stated otherwise, our sample Las Vegas car insurance rates assume the driver is a 30-year-old single male who owns a 2015 Honda Civic EX, has poor credit and opts for basic liability coverage, slightly above what is required by the state of Nevada.

In instances where the full coverage policy was examined, there were the following limits:

  • Bodily injury liability: $50,000 per person / $100,000 per accident
  • Property damage liability: $25,000 per accident
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury: $50,000 per person / $100,000 per accident
  • Comprehensive and collision: $500 deductible
ValuePenguin's analysis used insurance rate data from Quadrant Information Services. These rates were publicly sourced from insurer filings and should be used for comparative purposes only — your own quotes may be different.
