We’re here to make your life easier by bringing you relevant car insurance information you can understand. If you say, “Naw-lins” and know how to throw a serious crawfish boil, this is the Louisiana car insurance information you want to know from cost of cheapest providers to which provider is best for certain drivers and more.
Louisiana’s minimum requirements for car insurance include property damage liability and bodily injury liability coverage, but you should also think about additional coverages like collision insurance and comprehensive insurance so that your own vehicle is covered for any possible scenario. Liability insurance only pays for the other driver’s damages when an accident is your fault. You might also consider adding uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, which pays for your damages when you’re in an accident with an uninsured motorist or someone who does not have enough insurance to cover all of the costs of the accident.

In addition to age, gender, and location, your auto insurance rate is also determined by your driving record and credit score. If you’re having trouble finding cheap auto insurance because of poor credit or a bad driving record, make sure to ask about any insurance discounts you might be entitled to. Auto insurance companies offer discounts for setting up automatic payments, or enrolling in a usage-based insurance program. These programs use a mobile app on your phone to monitor your driving habits and give you a discount for safe driving. You might also find companies with loyalty discounts or discounts for drivers who are in the military.
Sometimes finding the cheapest rates comes down to which companies offer the best discounts.
What are the most popular Louisiana car insurance providers?
One way to measure a company’s “popularity” is to look at its “market share.” This shows you how many customers a company has compared to competitors. In Louisiana, State Farm is king with about one third of the state’s insured drivers on their policies. Their prices are the 22nd cheapest though meaning customers are paying more for their policies. Pharmacist Mutual Insurance is the cheapest in Louisiana, but it didn’t even make the top 10 for market share.
This is where reading about market share becomes valuable because it can show you that more people may be paying for service because of better coverage or customer service. Take a look.
|Market Share Percentage||Average Annual Rate|
|Southern Farm Bureau Casualty||5.22||N/A|
Which auto insurance companies have the best customer service?
Every time a customer complains, it goes into what’s called a “complaint index.” That document tells you how many customer complaints a company receives compared to its market share. The lower the number, the less complaints. The less complaints, the happier customers probably are.
|Louisiana Farm Bureau||0|
When you’re looking for an insurance provider, you shouldn’t just look at price. Make sure they’re keeping customers happy too by doing for one like Liberty Mutual or Louisiana Farm bureau that have zero complaint indexes compared to Affirmative Insurance which is pushing it with the amount of negative feedback they get.
What do we recommend?
We’re here to give you all the information you need to make a smart insurance decision, but the choice is ultimately up to you. If we were going on all-around great scores, we’d choose Allstate because it ranked in the top ten for price, complaint index, and market share. Affirmative Insurance did too, but their complaint index is a bit higher than we’d like to see.
