Comparing auto insurance in Florida and Georgia

If you're planning an interstate move from Florida to Georgia, you may be assessing the major concerns and expenses: finding a reliable long-haul moving service, locking down a new apartment or house in your new locale, and physically moving across state lines.

With all these moving parts, it's easy to overlook some details. Car insurance is often treated as a detail, but it's a big one. To ensure you stay street legal and find a good deal, you should plan to update your policy — or find a new policy altogether — when you move between states.

Check out our guide to auto insurance in Florida versus Georgia and take the strain out of your move. We'll cover the following topics:


  1. Insurance rate comparison
  2. Insurance rates by coverage level
  3. Affordable companies by state
  4. Rates in major cities

Florida vs. Georgia car insurance — average rates

You should expect to pay less for auto insurance in Georgia than you did in Florida. The usual annual car insurance rate in Georgia is $364 less expensive than the average cost in Florida. The exact cost will vary, depending on your coverage, driving and insurance history, and your auto insurance company.


CAR INSURANCE PREMIUMS IN FLORIDA VS. GEORGIA
State Average Annual Rate
Florida $1,819

Car insurance premiums by coverage level

How much you shell out for auto insurance depends on how you use your vehicle and what level of coverage you desire.

If you go with state minimum liability auto insurance coverage, you will get medical payment, bodily injury, and property damage liability coverages, in addition to uninsured and underinsured driver coverage and personal injury protection in some states.


CAR INSURANCE RATES — MINIMUM COVERAGE IN FLORIDA vs. GEORGIA
State Duration Premium
Florida Annual $822
Georgia Annual $548
Florida 6-Month $411
Georgia 6-Month $274
Florida Monthly $68
Georgia Monthly $46


Upgrading to full-coverage car insurance will raise your rates, but you'll get the added benefits of comprehensive and collision coverages, plus perks like rental reimbursement and roadside assistance. The primary pro of full coverage is that it insures your vehicle and you better than does basic car insurance coverage. If you want to go the extra mile to protect your investment, full coverage could be the way to go.
