Is Massachusetts a no-fault car insurance state?

Yes and this is one of the many reasons why Massachusetts car insurance rates tend to be lower than other states.

In fact, when you look at all the states with no car insurance laws, you will see that only Michigan is in the top 10 most expensive states in America.

This has more to do with a unique set of car insurance laws in Michigan regarding lifetime medical liability to car insurance companies than anything else.

The minimum requirements for auto insurance in Massachusetts are for bodily injury liability coverage, property damage liability coverage, and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

The minimum coverage is not enough for many drivers. You may also consider additional coverage options like collision coverage, comprehensive coverage, GAP insurance, and personal injury protection so you don’t have to pay for expensive damages out of pocket.

While a liability-only policy is the cheapest car insurance option, it may not give you the coverage you need.

What is the average cost of car insurance in Massachusetts?

In Massachusetts, drivers pay an average rate of $1,112 per year, or $93 per month, for car insurance. If you’re paying a significantly higher auto insurance rate, perhaps because you don’t have a clean driving record or you have a poor credit history, make sure to shop around and get a personalized quote from multiple companies.

While doing so, ask about any insurance discounts you might be entitled to. Many insurance providers offer student discounts, defensive driving course discounts, and bundling discounts. Also called a multi-policy discount, this one will get you lower rates for buying an auto policy and a homeowners or life insurance policy with the same company. This can significantly bring down your overall insurance costs.

How can you get Massachusetts auto insurance quotes?

Even with only a couple dozen car insurance companies drivers still can get cheap auto insurance rates in Massachusetts.
