The Californer/10266212

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Californer -- Last year, car insurance rates increased by 6%, and the average 2023 car insurance rate was $255.95 for full coverage. Many drivers were hopeful that 2024 would usher in a new season of lower car insurance premiums, but unfortunately, several factors, including carriers playing catch-up with the losses they've incurred over the past few years, will continue to contribute to the rise in car insurance rates yet again

It's predicted that car insurance rates will increase 18.9% in the new year, on average.[1] That means for full coverage, the average 2024 car insurance rate is $304.32 Largely, the hikes are caused by a 45% increase in replacement costs from 2020 to 2023 as well as higher incidents of losses. There has been a steady increase in carriers replacing totalled and stolen cars so these extra costs are spread amongst insured individuals.
