Minimum-coverage auto insurance policies meet Vermont's minimum legal requirements. Unlike full-coverage policies, minimum coverage doesn't include comprehensive and collision insurance.
Collision and comprehensive insurance protects you from car damage as a result of a collision, theft, vandalism or natural disaster — regardless of who's at fault.
Although minimum coverage usually costs less, purchasing lower liability coverage limits and opting out of comprehensive and collision coverage risk insufficient protection following an expensive accident.

Best car insurance companies in Vermont
Customer service is one of the most important parts of an insurance policy, and the best auto insurance companies in Vermont for service are:
- Concord Group
- State Farm
Of note, the best Vermont insurers, based on a measure of customer satisfaction known as the complaint ratio, were also frequently the cheapest in our study.
Customers filed fewer complaints with these insurers than others relative to their market share.
To find the best auto insurance companies in Vermont, we looked at the complaint ratios for the largest companies in the state, using data from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).
A complaint ratio measures how many complaints each company receives per $1 million of premiums they receive, and is an indication to us of how good a carrier's customer service and satisfaction are.
The lower the ratio, the fewer complaints a company received relative to its share of premiums underwritten, meaning that customers were less likely to complain.
Minimum auto insurance requirements in Vermont
Vermonters need to have a minimum amount of car insurance in order to drive. By getting minimum coverage, you would be able to dramatically reduce the cost of your policy. However, full-coverage auto insurance may be more appropriate for some drivers.
Below we've included the minimum coverage limits for Vermont drivers:
- Bodily injury liability insurance: $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident
- Property damage liability insurance: $10,000 per accident
- Uninsured/Underinsured motorist bodily injury insurance: $50,000 per person and $100,000 per accident
- Uninsured/Underinsured motorist property damage Insurance: $10,000 per accident
While your car insurance policy may meet Vermont's minimum legal requirements, many motorists may benefit from buying more coverage.
We recommend Vermont drivers consider higher liability limits, as well as comprehensive and collision coverage. Minimum-coverage plans may not be enough to fully cover the cost of damage in an expensive accident or protect any damage caused to your automobile.
