Texas Car Insurance

Be protected on the road

The second-largest state in the United States, Texas also features some of the most populated cities in the country — Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin and Fort Worth. The Lone Star State is known for its hot weather, barbecue, popular professional sports teams and historical sites, such as the Alamo. You'll find portions of numerous interstate highways going through the cities and farmlands taking travelers east, west or south of the border.

When it comes to auto insurance, just like its landmarks, cuisine and culture, every state is different. See what coverage and coverage limits Texas requires in the table below. These requirements are just a starting point — you may want to purchase additional coverages or increase your coverage limits.
