Where you live in Glendale affects your car insurance rates. Besides your driving history and credit score, where you live is one of the biggest contributing factors to the car insurance rates you'll pay. The reason? Crime, theft and uninsured motorists vary by zip code. So if you find yourself in a neighborhood that doesn’t play well with others, car insurance companies may consider you a high risk to insure, meaning: your rates could be higher than those of a pal who lives just around the block. And, unfortunately Glendale is no exception to the rule. From zip code 85310 to 91204, premiums rise by 93 percent—that’s $1085.
Expensive Glendale Zip Codes: 91210, 91201, 91203, 91205, 91204
