I have Hartford auto insurance and live in SW Florida. My insurance went from $1000 to $1414 yearly premium in one year. I have zero claims, no accidents with my 2014 CX5. I am interested in hearing from others who live in FL and their insurance and cost. A call to the Hartford rechecked all my discounts like safe drivers, drivers class, max deductibles etc. Getting tired of paying for Jerks and illegals who drive without insurance. Ed

Apparently regular auto insurance has been break-even or a money loser for the last four years because of texting cell phone jerks.

Also insurance is just a tool to hold your money while they invest it in the stock market. With homeowners insurance cashing out to pay for hurricanes, the stocks slide, and your auto insurance gets more expensive as it has to carry its own.

Cheap gas = more miles driven.
Distracted drivers = more accidents
Record low bond yields = less investment income to subsidize rates

Hurricane Irma has scared insurance companies from wanting to do business in Florida. If insurance companies do sell in Florida, they are probably going to gouge the consumer for a while.

Insurance rates are not solely based on your driving/accident record. As others have stated-there are other issues at play. Including some YOU MENTIONED.

Shop around.

Find a good independent agent and get quotes from a number of companies.

Consumer Reports had a lengthy article about car insurance within the past 6 months. I would read it and see if there are suggestions.

Are you a veteran=USAA?

Geico?

Local companies?

Except most state governments have an insurance commissioner that works to make that not the situation.

I checked on USAA insurance. Their car policy premium was much cheaper than my insurer but their renter's policy premium was much higher so there was no advantage to changing.

So you can't break up the two?

Just got my auto insurance policy renewal from Allstate, and it went up 10% from the previous six months. Big jump compared to previous years.

I know from past experience that Allstate will jack up rates when they lose a lot of money because of hurricanes. Time to shop around again.
