What drives up car insurance rates in Honolulu?

Where you live in Honolulu 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 Honolulu is no exception to the rule. From zip code 96813 to 96818, premiums rise by 0 percent—that’s $4.

Honolulu Car Insurance

Should I file an insurance claim?

Here are a few things to consider:
  • You have up to 2 years in Hawaii to file a property damage claim with your insurance provider. It's always best to file a claim as quickly as possible so your insurance company can best assess the damage on your vehicle, however you technically can file a claim up to 2 years from the date of the damage.
  • Since the damage on your car came from 2 different incidents you will be required to file 2 claims and pay 2 different deductibles.

Do I have to prove a driver was uninsured?

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about not wanting to get another driver who is uninsured in trouble. At the end of the day, your insurance might require you show proof of an uninsured motorist in which case it is in your best interest to give as much information as possible to your company.
