Who has the cheapest car insurance in Kansas?
USAA offers the cheapest car insurance rates to Kansas drivers who want full coverage, with a $730 average annual premium. USAA offers the cheapest rates in the state for minimum car insurance, too, with a $254 average annual premium.
These rates are based on quotes we gathered for an average driver in Kansas.
Several other insurers also offer affordable car insurance to the Sunflower State, our research shows. Auto-Owners is one of them. The average premium it offered our sample driver for a full-coverage policy was just under $9 per month more than what USAA offered — and $34 per month less than the state average.
State Farm, Progressive and Farm Bureau are three more companies offering full-coverage car insurance that is cheaper than the state average. The average premium State Farm sent our sample driver was $869 per year. Progressive’s and Farm Bureau’s were $940 per year and $1,014 per year, respectively. The state average for this kind of policy — which usually provides liability, collision and comprehensive coverage — is $1,246 per year.
Auto-Owners, Farm Bureau, Progressive and State Farm are among the cheapest insurance companies in Kansas when it comes to state-minimum car insurance as well.
For example, the average premium Auto-Owners offered our sample driver for a state-minimum policy was only about $2 per month more than what USAA offered. The average premium Progressive offered our driver for minimum coverage was $4.50 per month more than USAA’s average premium.
Many rate factors determine how much you pay for car insurance, including your age, gender and marital status. Because of that, the quotes these and other companies send you may be cheaper or more expensive than the ones this article highlights.
What are the best car insurance companies in Kansas?
USAA and Auto-Owners are the best car insurance companies in Kansas if you want cheap coverage, according to our survey of the state’s providers. Progressive and State Farm are great options, too.
USAA: best car insurance rates in Kansas
USAA is our choice as best car insurance company in Kansas because it offered our sample driver the lowest rates for both full-coverage and state-minimum policies.
USAA offered our sample driver an average rate of $254 per year for the minimum amount of auto insurance Kansas requires. This is $180 per year cheaper than the state average for such coverage.
Also, USAA offered our sample driver an average rate of $730 per year for full coverage. This is $516 per year cheaper than the state average.
Auto-Owners: runner-up for best car insurance rates in Kansas
You should get quotes from Auto-Owners while shopping for cheap car insurance in Kansas for two reasons. One is that it offered our sample driver some of the lowest rates in the state for both minimum and full-coverage policies. Another is that more people can buy coverage from Auto-Owners than from USAA. USAA only insures active military, veterans and certain family members.
At any rate, Auto-Owners offered our driver an average premium of $280 per year for state-minimum coverage. And it offered our driver an average premium of $837 per year for full coverage. Those average premiums are only $2 per month and $9 per month more expensive than USAA’s average premiums, respectively.
Progressive: another good option for cheap state-minimum car insurance in Kansas
Progressive provided our sample driver an average annual premium of $308 for state-minimum car insurance coverage. This is $126 per year cheaper than the Kansas average. That’s a difference of $10.50 per month.
So, if you can’t or don’t want to get car insurance from Auto-Owners or USAA, check out Progressive for this kind of policy.

State Farm provided our sample driver an average annual premium of $869 for full-coverage car insurance. This is $377 per year, or $31 per month, cheaper than the state average for this amount of coverage.
Like Progressive, State Farm is a good backup option if USAA and Auto-Owners aren’t possibilities for you.
