Cheapest for good drivers
For drivers with no at-fault accidents, DUIs or moving violations.
Good drivers in Wyoming pay under $75 a month with the two cheapest insurers, State Farm and Safeco, in our analysis. Rates jump more than 50% after that, so even for good drivers it pays to look at multiple insurance rates before choosing a policy.
Cheapest for young drivers
For drivers younger than 25.
Drivers in their early 20s can generally choose lower levels of insurance because they have less to lose after an accident, which makes it easier to find cheap car insurance in Wyoming. The prices above for young drivers reflect policies with only the legal minimum amount of coverage. Safeco edges out the competition with the lowest rate of about $27 per month.
Drivers with one at-fault accident
Causing a car accident typically leads to higher insurance rates at renewal time or if you shop around for a new company. But each insurer determines that cost differently, so it’s important to look for the best deal. Case in point: Wyoming drivers who go with Allstate after an accident can pay over $800 more per year than those who choose State Farm — a difference of about $67 per month.
Cheapest for drivers with poor credit
For drivers placed in the “poor credit” tier.
Drivers with poor credit are seen as riskier by insurance companies, and they can pay even more in premiums than those with a recent at-fault accident. The cheapest insurer for Wyoming drivers with poor credit, according to our analysis, is Safeco, which charged about $95 per month in our analysis.
Cheapest for retired drivers
For drivers in their mid- to late 60s who no longer use their car for commuting.
Retired people tend to drive less because they no longer have daily commutes, so we looked at quotes for drivers in their mid- to late 60s who drive half as many miles as other groups. State Farm and Safeco have low rates, both under $675 annually. But the next cheapest rate is $300 more per year. So even those who don’t log many miles may find cheaper car insurance in Wyoming by getting several quotes.
Minimum car insurance requirements in Wyoming
Wyoming car insurance policies must include liability insurance. This pays for others’ injuries or property damage if you cause an accident.
The minimum limits in Wyoming are:
- $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
- $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
- $20,000 property damage liability per accident
Buying only the legal minimum auto insurance may not be enough if you’re in an accident. You may want higher levels of liability insurance, and you should consider common options such as collision and comprehensive coverage.
