We bet you’ve wondered how car insurance premiums are calculated. Do you ever have discussions with friends of similar age and driving history and find you’re all paying very different premiums for what would appear to be similar coverage?

Insurance premiums are based off of many factors, all of which play a role in your total premium for your auto insurance. A single difference of any of these can give dramatically different outcomes. Some factors insurance companies use to calculate premium can include:

  1. Gender, age & marital status
  2. What’s your past driving history?
  3. What’s your claim history?
  4. Your Zip Code where the vehicle is garaged
  5. Your credit score
  6. How many miles you commute
  7. Will you or do you have other policies with the same insurance carrier such as home or renters insurance?
  8. Are you currently insured?
  9. What types of overage do you want? What limits?
  10. What limits did you have on your previous insurance policy?
  11. Type and age of vehicle being driven (think safety equipment)

Insurance companies do their best to determine a premium for your situation and calculate a premium that will be profitable for them. It may surprise you to know that many insurance companies try to earn just a few cents on each dollar of premium they collect.
