Average Car Insurance Costs in Hawaii by Age Group

It’s a fact of life: as you grow older, your auto insurance prices shift. Generally, car insurance is more costly for teenage drivers, as insurers see inexperienced drivers as riskier.

In Hawaii, car insurance costs $1,253 per year for a 16-year-old driver, versus $1,080 per year for a driver aged between 50 and 59.

Age Average Yearly Premium
16 $1,252.83

40s $1,079.69
50s $1,079.69

If you're shopping for car insurance for a teen driver, Hawaii is the least expensive state in which to buy auto insurance for a 16-year-old.



Average Auto Insurance Premiums in Hawaii by Gender

While gender doesn’t have as significant an impact on auto insurance rates as location or experience level, it is used as a pricing factor by car insurance companies.

Men and women pay the same amount for car insurance in Hawaii. Along with Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, California, and Montana, these states do not use gender as a rating factor for car insurance premiums.

Gender Average Annual Rate
Male $1,079.69
Female $1,079.69

If you're concerned you might not be getting the best value for your money with your present auto insurance company, the best option is to compare insurance companies.



Mean Auto Insurance Rates in Hawaii by Marital Status

One pro of nuptials — aside from the wedding gifts — is the better deal you may receive on your car insurance policy. In Hawaii, however, married drivers pay around the same rates as single, divorced, and widowed drivers. This is a smaller discount than the US average of $76.

Marital Status Average Annual Premium
Single $1,079.69
Married $1,079.69
Divorced $1,079.69
Widowed $1,079.69

Car insurance for divorced drivers in Hawaii is the 42nd most expensive in the nation. If you are paying too much for your coverage, consider doing some comparison shopping. You might find a great deal!


Average Car Insurance Rates in Hawaii by Credit

Auto insurance underwriters use credit history to gauge how reliable a customer will be. Historical trends indicate drivers with good credit are often more dependable auto insurance clients: they are less likely to file claims insurance companies have to cover.

Hawaii is one of three states that does not use credit scores as a rating factor. Drivers with excellent and poor credit can expect comparable rates, assuming other factors remain constant.

Credit Level Average Annual Premium
Very Poor (300-579) $1,079.69
Fair (580-669) $1,079.69
Good (670-739) $1,079.69
Very Good (740-799) $1,079.69
Exceptional (800-850) $1,079.69
