How to get cheap car insurance in Pennsylvania

  • Ask your agent to review all available car insurance discounts. 
  • "Bundle" your auto and home insurance for a discount by buying them from the same company.
  • Increase the deductible on comprehensive and collision coverage, if you have them.
  • Improve your credit. Insurers often use a credit-based insurance score as part of setting rates. Those with poor credit usually pay higher car insurance rates. 

Methodology for premium comparisons

We averaged premiums reported by EverQuote users, based on policies with bodily injury liability coverage of $100,000 in bodily injury per person and $300,000 in bodily injury per accident (known as 100/300). Rates are based on insuring single vehicles with one driver who has a good driving record and no violations. We used premiums for sedans, coupes and hatchbacks. Premiums are based on expenditures reported between Jan. 1, 2016, and April 1, 2018. Your own rates will be different.
