Drivers in Las Vegas pay the most for car insurance in the state, but regardless of where you live, you can save a considerable amount if you compare rates. This is why:
Your age, your driving history, your credit and the type of car you drive, among other factors, are all used by insurance companies to calculate how much you pay. But where you live is typically used by insurers as a base line for the process, with other variables either increasing or decreasing that amount. Insurance companies assess ZIP codes’ risk levels based on the number and severity of car insurance claims within the area.
They also use different formulas when deciding what you pay, which is why the price for the same policy varies by hundreds, or thousands, from one insurer to the next.
For example, Las Vegas ZIP code 89101, with an average rate of $2,705, is the most expensive in the city and the state, according to a CarInsurance.com analysis. The highest rate from insurers surveyed for that neighborhood ($3,386) was $1,600 more than the lowest ($1,786), according our rate analysis.
The wide range in rates from different insurers shows why it's wise to compare car insurance rates. Enter your ZIP code in the average rate tool below to see the price for a policy in your neighborhood, as well as the highest and lowest cost fielded from six insurance companies.

Las Vegas car insurance requirements
Nevada state law requires the following minimum car insurance coverage:
Minimum bodily injury liability
Minimum property damage liability
Cheap auto insurance: Las Vegas
Minimum liability coverage limits of 15/30/10 are required to drive in Nevada. That means your insurance company will pay up to $15,000 per person injured in an accident you cause, up to $30,000 per accident, and up to $10,000 for damage you cause to another car or other property. Buying the state required limits is definitely the cheapest way to go. But your assets and savings aren’t shielded from lawsuits and you won’t be covered for damage to your own car. Additionally, the cost to pay for damages from even a minor accident can easily exceed these limits, leaving you responsible to pay out-of-pocket for repair and medical bills.
It does cost more to buy more protection, but as you’ll see below, additional coverage is typically affordable. Based on an analysis outlined below of rate fielded from six major insurers for Las Vegas ZIP codes, increasing your insurance from the state minimum to full coverage with a $500 deductible costs, on average, $867 more, or $72 a month. Just hiking to higher liability costs just $227 yearly, or $19 a month.
Average Las Vegas rates for three coverage levels:
State minimum average annual rate: $879
Liability only; 100/50/100 average annual rate: $1,106
Full coverage of 100/300/100, with comprehensive and collision: $1,746
