Top Auto Insurance Companies in Texas

August 16, 2010 No Comments »


Below is a list of the top auto insurance companies in Texas, based on written insurance premium. Keep in mind that these companies aren’t necessarily the top rated, just the most frequently used.

As you can see, State Farm was the top auto insurance provider in Texas in 2009 (the most recent data available), according to a recent report from the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas.

The company grabbed 20.3% market share with roughly $2.66 billion in written premium, followed by Farmers, which raked in 13.4% market share with slightly more than $1.76 billion in written premium.

Allstate grabbed the third spot with 11.8% market share and $1.55 billion in written premium, followed closely by Progressive, with 8% market share and $1.04 billion in written premium.

Rounding out the top five was GEICO (Berkshire Hathaway), with 6.8% market share and $890 million in written premium.

A number of other notables are in the top 20, including USAA, Liberty Mutual, Amica, MetLife, and Mercury General.


FYI, this report looks at total insurance written for both private passenger liability insurance and physical damage coverage.

You will notice a lot of the usual suspects here. You may also be surprised to find a number of companies you’ve never heard of.

This is proof that a company doesn’t necessarily have to advertise on television to be a top insurer.

Get insurance quotes online and/or contact your local independent agent if you’re in the market for a new insurance policy or want to see if what you currently pay is reasonable.

Remember, the insurance company with the greatest volume may not be the most cost effective choice for you and your insurance needs.
