If you are looking for car insurance and you live in Jalisco, you will pay more than vehicle owners from other states. For example, when making a comparison of the Versa Advance CVT model, the cost was higher in several quotes in Guadalajara.
On the Autocompara portal, the cheapest price for Guadalajara is 10,313 pesos, while in Toluca (State of Mexico) it dropped to 8,282 pesos and for Mexico City it is 7,920 pesos.
Differences remained in the switch of other financial institutions. Although the prices vary depending on the insurer, the car and the contracted package, the municipalities of the metropolis are located with the highest prices in the average throughout the country. While Puebla, Zacatecas and Baja California Sur are among the States with the lowest costs.
“It depends on the accident rate. In Guadalajara, some models are more expensive than in other states, such as Mexico City, the State of Mexico and Aguascalientes”, explains Adriana Rico, an insurance salesperson. The accident rate is based on the number of robberies or road accidents, mainly.
Last year, the Entities with the most vehicle thefts were the State of Mexico, Jalisco, Mexico City, Guanajuato and Puebla.
The Mexican Association of Insurance Institutions (AMIS) considers that this year insurance will rise, due to the rise in the price of auto parts. For now, according to the Inegi, prices had an increase of 10% in the first half of June.
In Jalisco, only three out of 10 vehicles have an insurance policy that protects them in the event of an accident, according to AMIS estimates.
