Vermont car insurance

Vermont has the smallest population of its New England neighbors, but the Green Mountain State boasts an outsized portion of the region's scenic driving routes. Rural, wooded roads present unique driving risks such as damage to windshields from kicked-up gravel and collisions with wildlife. Count on Progressive for reliable insurance, plus an array of discounts to help you save.

What are the minimum Vermont auto insurance requirements?

Vermonters must carry the following minimum liability coverage limits:

  • $25,000 in bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 in total bodily injury per accident
  • $10,000 in property damage liability

If your assets exceed the minimum coverage, you can increase your limits of liability for more protection. Learn more about auto liability coverage.

Vermont also mandates uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury and property damage coverage with the following minimum limits:

  • $50,000 in uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury per person
  • $100,000 in uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury per accident
  • $10,000 with a $150 deductible in uninsured motorist property damage

Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage can cover injuries to you and your passengers and vehicle damage resulting from an accident with a driver who has no insurance or not enough coverage.

Comprehensive and collision coverage can protect your car

Lenders typically require collision and comprehensive coverage if you lease or finance your car. But even if your vehicle is paid off, physical damage coverages are still worth adding in the event your vehicle is damaged or stolen in a covered incident.
