What drives up car insurance rates in Portland?
Where you live in Portland 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 Portland is no exception to the rule. From zip code 97224 to 97218, premiums rise by 21 percent—that’s $272.
Expensive Portland Zip Codes: 97213, 97220, 97216, 97211, 97218
Cheap Portland Zip Codes: 97224, 97223, 97229, 97219, 97225
