Cheap auto insurance for good drivers in Kansas

Drivers with good driving records typically enjoy lower car insurance costs than drivers with histories of speeding tickets, at-fault accidents, or DUI citations. Kansas drivers without a recent moving violation typically save 16% on their car insurance premiums, near the national average of 17%. In addition to earning a cheaper premium for driving incident-free, you may qualify for a safe-driving bonus through your car insurance company. The amount of these discounts may vary, but they typically run between 5 and 10%.

Cheap auto insurance for young drivers in Kansas

Young drivers (those between the ages of 16 and 25) pay extraordinarily high auto insurance rates, with those aged 16-19 paying the most expensive premiums of all. Because of the risk presented by inexperienced drivers, teens pay more than three times the national average for car insurance. Kansas is a relatively affordable state for teen drivers: the typical teen driver pays $4,139 per year — about $800 less than the national average for teens, but still far more than the Kansas driver average across all age groups.

Cheap auto insurance for bad drivers in Kansas

If you have a clean driving record — no at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, or other recent citations — you'll probably pay less for car insurance. Conversely, a bad driving record will cause your rates to skyrocket: car insurance premiums typically increase by 24% after a DUI, 26% after an at-fault accident, and 16% after a speeding ticket in Kansas. The post-citation penalties assessed by car insurance companies in Kansas are lower than nationwide averages, especially after a DUI citation. If you have a clean driving record, be on the lookout for good-driving discounts from your insurer.

Rating FactorAnnual Rate% Increase
At-Fault Accident$1,94026.59%

Top rated car insurance companies in Kansas

Every car insurance company advertises its low prices. But as with any product, the least expensive insurance isn't always the best choice. Considering the financial stakes, it's worth doing your homework to discover the policy that covers your car adequately after a collision. Be on the lookout for the best value, rather than settling for the cheapest auto insurance in your state.

Kansas Auto Insurance Laws

  • Property Damage $25,000 per accident

Optional coverage in Kansas (varies by carrier):

For the minimum required coverage in Kansas, expect to owe an average of $480 per year. This is cheaper than the U.S. average by 27%. If you elect better coverage, you can select a policy with comprehensive and collision coverage, which will protect against damages incurred by car collisions, theft and vandalism, or weather incidents. Better coverage comes with a cost: in Kansas, a comprehensive policy with a $1,000 deductible costs $1,199, 150% more than basic insurance coverage. For a comprehensive policy with a $500 deductible, expect to pay 198% more than you would for basic coverage.

It's worth noting that Kansas is a no-fault state.

A no-fault insurance laws system requires drivers to carry their own protection. When an accident happens, no matter who is at fault, your own insurance foots the bill. Each driver takes care of their own damages, theoretically reducing the chances of a party suing over culpability. As a bonus, it guarantees every driver immediate medical treatment in the event of an accident.

Recent Questions:

Is my deck covered by my homeowners policy?

Since the deck you recently had built is attached to your home, the structure should be covered under the "dwelling" portion of your homeowners insurance. If the deck were not attached to your home then it would be covered under the other structures portion of your policy.

If I have two separate insurance claims to file, do they tally the two claims to determine if the car is totaled?

The claims department will want to do whatever is the least expensive option. They will likely add the damages together to decide what to do.

After an auto accident where my car was totaled, can I change my coverage from full to liability only to keep my rates down?.

Yes, you can downgrade your coverage to liability only until you get a new car. It is true that you should maintain coverage if you plan on getting a new car soon in order to keep the rates down.

If I am in between vehicles and need an SR22, what should I do for insurance?

I would recommend getting a non-owners insurance policy with an SR22 added. This will provide state-required coverage to drive while you don't actually own a vehicle and don't have a need for a traditional auto policy.
