How to get cheap car insurance in Tennessee

  • Comparing rates from multiple companies can potentially save hundreds of dollars a year.
  • Buy your home or renters insurance from the same company as your auto insurance. The "bundling" discount can be one of the bigger discounts. 
  • Ask your insurance agent how much you can save by increasing the deductible on comprehensive and collision coverage, if you buy them.
  • Have good credit. Be aware that drivers with poor credit often pay more for car insurance. 

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.
