WHAT DRIVES UP CAR INSURANCE RATES IN Philadelphia

Where you live in Philadelphia 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, Philadelphia is no exception to the rule. From zip code 19113 to 19132, premiums rise by 50 percent—that’s $860.

Expensive Cheap
19133 19139 19140 19121 19132
19113 19128 19118 19127 19154
