How to choose a car insurance company in Nashville

Nashville skyline

Car insurance quotes are determined by a variety of factors, including where in Nashville you live. However, since Tennessee is the 15th least expensive state for car insurance, you can expect to pay lower rates than most Americans.

We found that car insurance in Nashville averages around $1,216 per year for comprehensive coverage for a 40-year-old man. Popular neighborhoods such as East Nashville and Hermitage have higher auto insurance rates.

Average rates for car insurance in Nashville

Location Comprehensive (100/300/100) Liability (50/100/50) State Minimum (25/50/15)
The Gulch (37203) $1,200 $477 $477
Downtown Nashville (37201) $1,226 $482 $452
Brentwood (37220) $1,224 $483 $454
Woodbine (37210) $1,207 $478 $478
East Nashville (37206) $1,251 $488 $458
Music Row (37212) $1,181 $464 $436
Hermitage (37076) $1,247 $492 $461

Tennessee law requires drivers to carry a 25/50/15 liability plan. This means your minimum limits must be:

  • $25,000 for each injury or death per accident
  • $50,000 for total injuries or deaths per accident
  • $15,000 for property damage per accident

Nashville residents can choose additional coverage, such as collision, uninsured motorist, comprehensive and medical payments. Each extra coverage option increases your monthly payment.

Although Tennessee law requires drivers to have car insurance, many residents drive without it. About 20 percent of Tennessee drivers don’t have insurance, making us the fifth highest state for uninsured motorists. Coverage for uninsured motorists will protect you in case of an accident involving a driver without insurance.

The Tennessee region is also prone to hail, strong storms and tornadoes, all of which are hazardous to your vehicle whether you’re on-the-go or parked outside. Comprehensive coverage will protect your car in cases of weather-related damage.
