Douglas County drivers pay good bit less for car insurance than their neighbors to the east in Atlanta, but right on the state average, according to a study released this week.
ValuePenguin surveyed the state to find the cheapest rates by comparing premiums in 30 cities. Its sample driver profile was a 30-year-old single male, who drives a 2010 Toyota Camry, is an employed homeowner with excellent credit, has a clean driving record and drives 10,000 miles a year, mainly to work.
Douglasville car owners would pay $1,090 per year for the sample profile, which is right on what the survey determined to be the state average.
Valdosta was the cheapest at $885, and Atlanta the most expensive at $1,263.
Generally speaking, drivers in more densely populated areas, pay more for insurance in Georgia, the survey said.
But Athens is the exception. Despite being the fifth-largest city in the state and one of the more densely populated areas, it has the second-lowest insurance average in the study behind Valdosta.
The ValuePenguin data is for comparison purposes. Your cost depends on your profile factors.
