What can increase car insurance rates?

It's common for car insurance companies raise rates after accident and tickets. EverQuote reviewed state insurance filings by Travelers to determine what will cause a rate increase. These factors could vary by state and Travelers subsidiary.

Travelers generally calculates an incident count and rate by looking for these problems:

At-fault accidents where there was a claim and you were more than 50% at fault.

Major convictions such as a reckless driving, a DUI or attempting to elude an officer.

Intermediate convictions such as speeding 11 to 15 mph over the speed limit.

Minor convictions such as speeding 1 to 5 mph over the speed limit.

Not-at-fault accidents over a certain dollar threshold (such as $500 total).

Not-at-fault accidents under a certain threshold that happened before the customer switched to Travelers.

Comprehensive coverage losses over a certain threshold (such as a total of $1,000).

Examples of not-at-fault accidents can include:

  • Damage when your vehicle was lawfully parked.
  • Damage from a person who has a judgment against them for the accident.
  • Being rear-ended and not receiving a moving violation associated with the accident.

Consumer complaints against Travelers Insurance

Every state's insurance department handles complaints against insurers that operate in the state. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners collects complaint data and produces a complaint ratio. The number is meant to show the number of complaints relative to a company's size of business. The industry median ratio is 1.00 and lower numbers are better. Travelers' complaint ratios are better than the industry median.
