Discount Rate Age 40$1,220$102

As you can see by the chart above, there is a lot of variability in car insurance rates. Here’s a super ridiculous number that illustrates this fact. If we showed every rate for every conceivable risk profile, including all seven Volkswagen Jetta trim levels and all 41,692 zip codes in the U.S., the result would be approximately 677,376,000,000 different possible insurance rates for a Volkswagen Jetta. (Mic drop)

Another more relatable example is a Jetta insurance policy with only liability coverage in some parts of North Carolina or Iowa may cost as little as $229 a year, while a teen driver with an at-fault accident and maybe a few speeding tickets in some urban areas in California could have to pay as much as $12,116 a year for a policy with full coverage.

Again, there is a lot of variability in that example so our solution: get a quote. It’s really the best way to find out how much insurance is going to cost without sifting through about 680 billion rates.
