San Diego Auto Insurance Quotes

San Diego

If you need to purchase insurance, the most important thing you can do is to compare rates from an assortment of insurers. The simplest way to do that is to use the rate comparison engine here at By providing your zip code and answering a few questions, you can receive several competing quotes within minutes. Finding the best rate then becomes a simple matter of comparing them to each other.

Established in 1769, San Diego has been dubbed the birthplace of California. The state's second-largest city has shown phenomenal growth in population - not to mention real estate prices - since the early 1900s. People continue to flock to San Diego. Some come to enjoy its numerous beaches and year-round sunny weather. Others are drawn by the city's position as a leader in manufacturing, technology, and international trade.

The city's extensive coastline attracts surfers, skaters, and beachgoers. Its focus on biotech and life sciences scores major points with scientists. Its commerce-friendly environment draws business leaders from around the country. And its status as one of the most-educated cities in the U.S. has made it a popular haven for college students.

San Diego's economy is heavily based on its defense and military sector. Nearly 5 percent of the city's jobs are related to the military, funded by billions of dollars in defense contracts.

In 2011, there were 5,358 traffic accidents - including 65 fatalities - in San Diego. As is the case throughout California, you must carry proof of auto insurance to own and operate a vehicle in the city or park on its roadways. The minimum requirements are as follows:

● $15,000 bodily injury liability for any one person in a single accident

● $30,000 bodily injury liability for all persons in a single accident

● $5,000 property damage liability

Motorists can also meet the state's financial responsibility laws by leaving a $35,000 cash deposit with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or obtaining a $35,000 surety bond from a California-licensed insurance company.

It's advisable to shop around whenever your car insurance policy comes up for renewal. Don't assume your current insurer is giving you the best rate. The only way to be certain is to compare rates from a variety of car insurance companies.
