Allstate Raises Auto Insurance Premiums in Pennsylvania

Female motoristPennsylvania drivers receiving car coverage through Allstate Insurance should prepare themselves for a rate increase.

Close to 150,000 of the state’s drivers will see an average of an 11.3 percent increase in their premiums, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported. This rate increase only applies to those who purchase both auto and home coverage from Allstate. For some Pennsylvania drivers, this may be the time to compare auto insurance quotes from other providers.

It has been six years since the insurance provider has filed a rate increase in the state, the Tribune-Review said. An increase in the severity and frequency of claims prompted the rise in premiums. In an effort to soften the blow, Allstate doubled their discount given to customers who buy both auto and home insurance through them.

It’s not uncommon for insurers to give discounts to customers bundling their insurance packages with the same company. However, if Pennsylvania residents believe they can find a better deal on premiums, experts advise they compare quotes from a number of companies online. It can be an efficient way to find the best coverage available.ADNFCR-3298-ID-19831260-ADNFCR
