What drives up car insurance rates in San Antonio?

Where you live in San Antonio 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 San Antonio is no exception to the rule. From zip code 78266 to 78206, premiums rise by 17 percent—that’s $232.
