Trying to compare your rates with some anonymous people on the net is an exercise in futility. Insurance companies use too many variables: driving record, age, location, credit rating, and a ton of other things - unless you clone yourself and have your clone living in your house with you you'll find it rare that two people in different parts of the county, let alone country, will have the same insurance bill.

It might be of some help if we knew your age, driving record, amount of insurance, deductibles, etc. Without that everything is a comparison of "apples and oranges."

Agree that there are so many variables however I am starting to compare rates with those quoted from my longtime insurer and I am getting some much cheaper quotes. I hate to leave my insurer but the numbers are starting to look like I should. Spouse has been telling me I need to shop and perhaps she is right (although a hate to admit it--ha). $6-700 a year is a pretty good savings.

That is certainly better that £300 per month, but I would suggest that you might do better than that.

We are "alians" and we now pay $1614 per year with Progressive. This has gone up by a lot over the past 3 years. Being "a native" I would expect you to pay considerably less.

Theres' just too many variables for any kind of meaningful comparison on a national forum.

We pay about 1/3 of that for our new Revolution. Your location may have something to do with it. I'm guessing theft, as example, is more prevalent in El Paso than it is here in central WI. Your population density is also much higher, greater exposure to accidents. I'm not familiar with TX insurance laws, but the more regulation, typically, the higher the price. Of course your personal driving record does have an effect too. One DUI arrest, even one most would consider ancient history, will follow a guy for many years.

The best advice is to do your homework - shop around to at least three or four different companies. You may find that is the going rate for your unique set of variables.
