how much does collector and classic vehicle insurance cost?
No one likes paying for insurance (that we've met), but at least with coverage through Esurance, your classic car insurance rates can be remarkably affordable.
We partner with Hagerty to provide protection uniquely tailored to classic rides — and the result is a premium up to 43 percent lower than your everyday car insurance, on average.
When it comes to your exact collector car insurance rates, there are a variety of factors that come into play, such as:
- Vehicle type
- Storage type (garage, carport, etc.)
- Driver history
- ZIP Code
- Car modifications

other tips to save on collector car insurance
Beyond discounts, here are even more ways to help you control the cost of your policy.
Vehicles with performance-enhancing features that make them more dangerous to drive, often called "tuners," can pose a higher risk level and increase your rates.
We know getting your classic car to look and run the way you want is a big part of collecting. But, clearly, it pays to tread lightly when considering some modifications.
The more secure your car's storage space, the lower your collector and classic car insurance rates can often be. For instance, renting out a garage spot for your vehicle can typically net a lower premium than using a carport. You'll also rest easier knowing there aren't prying eyes on your valuable vehicle.
Rethink coverage for restorations
If you're only restoring, not driving, a collector car, you have the option of lowering your rates by choosing a comprehensive-only policy.
This focuses coverage squarely where you need it (the rebuilding process), and leaves off extra stuff you don't have use for, such as liability and bodily injury coverage.
