Vallejo auto insurance rates by credit tier

 

A driver's credit level can be closely correlated with their auto insurance rates. Moving from "Very Poor" to "Fair" credit is typically a great way to save money on car insurance.

In Vallejo, however, your credit score won't impact your premium even if you have poor credit. California is one of three states that have banned insurance companies from using drivers' credit scores as a rating factor.
