Looking for the cheapest car insurance in California?

If you had to call every insurance company in California, it would be time-consuming task.  But don’t worry.  We collected rates from 40+ insurers and saved you a bunch of time.

Taken from our sample rates in six separate categories of drivers, we’ve compiled a helpful list from the Golden State.  I did not say ‘best’, I just said cheap.

Bear in mind, every driver is different.  What you see below is a sample of drivers ages 20-55, both male and female.  Prices listed are NOT the same as the price you will receive from the companies below, even if you just get liability coverage.

In addition, these are NOT quotes from these companies.  This is a general guide to help you narrow your choices when shopping for car insurance.
