The bottom line
Germania Farm Mutual Insurance Association (more popularly known as Germania) has been providing insurance to Texans for more than a century. Germania is one of the top five cheapest car insurance companies in Texas and a popular option for Texas drivers.
Germania has lower-than-average auto insurance rates, but it doesn’t offer very many types of car insurance. You can get the basics, like liability as well as comprehensive and collision coverage, but Germania only offers a few additional types of auto coverage add-ons, including roadside assistance and RV coverage.
It does not offer many of the more popular endorsements available at some other car insurance companies, like gap coverage, rideshare coverage, or rental car coverage.
Despite its limited coverage options, Germania is still a good choice for drivers who need low rates and plenty of discounts.
Few coverage options
Only available in Texas
Basic coverages offered
Liability coverage: Covers the cost of bodily injuries or property damage you cause to someone else in an at fault accident. Liability coverage is required in almost every state.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage: Also known as UM/UIM, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage pays for your medical expenses if you’re hit by a driver who doesn’t have insurance, or doesn’t have enough insurance to cover all your medical expenses. UM/UIM is required coverage in some states.
Collision coverage: Covers damage to your vehicle after a car accident, whether or not you were at fault.
Comprehensive coverage: Covers non-collision damage to your car, including damage caused by extreme weather, hail, flood, fire, falling objects, vandalism and theft.
Additional coverages offered
Roadside assistance: Covers fuel delivery, towing, locksmith services, battery jumpstarts, winching, and flat tires.
RV coverage: Covers damage to your motorhome, travel trailer, or horse trailer with living quarters when added to your auto policy.
We used data provided by Quadrant to compare the average cost of a full coverage policy from Germania (50/100/50 coverage limits and $500 deductibles for comprehensive and collision coverage) to competitor rates for the same coverage with the same driver profile (single drivers aged 30, 35, and 45 driving a 2017 Toyota Camry LE about 10,000 miles per year.)
Germania does not have a score on J.D. Power’s 2022 U.S. Auto Claims Satisfaction Study. According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) National Complaint Index Report, Germania also had fewer customer complaints than average in 2021.
Germania only offers 6 different types of auto insurance coverage, giving it a very low score when it comes to coverage options. Beyond the standard auto insurance coverage types, including liability, comprehensive, and collision coverage, Germania offers add-ons like roadside assistance and RV coverage.
Germania has moderate financial ratings, scoring an A- with AM Best. Germania doesn’t have a rating with S&P or Moody’s, but it is still in a decent financial position to pay out its customers’ claims.
