Insurance Discounts

Texas auto insurance companies offer discounts on premium based on factors that they believe indicate higher-than-normal levels of personal responsibility.

What Affects Insurance Rates?

Insurers rate you based on the level of risk they feel you represent to them, and they charge you accordingly. So, having tickets and accidents can raise your rates significantly. Texas insurance companies' statistics show that if you've been in one accident, you're more likely to be in another.
