Hawaii drivers pay around $803 a year for car insurance on average, according to the Insurance Information Institute, which is below the national average. 

Shopping around for coverage is the best way to make sure you’re getting the best price for you. Your premium, or the amount you’ll pay for auto insurance coverage, depends on several factors, including things like your credit score, the type of car you drive, how many years of driving experience you have, and even where you live in Hawaii. 

Every company weighs these factors differently, so getting quotes from different companies and comparing them is the best way to find the most affordable policy for you.
