Cheapest car insurance for drivers with bad credit in Beaumont, TX

There are only a few states that prohibit insurance companies from using credit score as a factor when determining insurance rates. Texas is not one of those states, so car insurance companies in Texas can and do use credit scores as one of many factors in setting prices. 

Drivers with low credit scores can expect to pay higher rates, but some companies are friendlier to drivers with poor credit than others.

Buying car insurance in Beaumont, TX

The minimum requirements for car insurance in the state of Texas are a 30/60/25 breakdown. This means Texas drivers are required to have an insurance policy that covers at least $30,000 per person and $60,000 per accident in bodily liability coverage, and a minimum of $25,000 in property damage liability coverage.

Methodology

Policygenius has analyzed car insurance rates provided by Quadrant Information Services for every ZIP code in all 50 states plus Washington, D.C. For full coverage policies, the following coverage limits were used:

  • Bodily injury liability: 50/100

  • Property damage liability: $50,000

  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist: 50/100

  • Comprehensive: $500 deductible

  • Collision: $500 deductible

In some cases, additional coverages were added where required by state or insurer.

Rates for overall average rate, rates by ZIP code, and cheapest companies determined using averages for single drivers ages 30, 35, and 45. Our sample vehicle was a 2017 Toyota Camry LE driven 10,000 miles/year.

Rates for driving violations and “Poor” credit determined using average rates for a single male 30-year-old driver with a credit score under 578.

Some carriers may be represented by affiliates or subsidiaries. Rates provided are a sample of costs. Your actual quotes may differ.
