What does Fayetteville car insurance actually do for me?
Fayetteville car insurance can protect your finances if you are in an accident while on the road. It can pay for injuries and car repairs if you cause an accident.
Arkansas requires drivers to purchase a minimum amount of liability insurance. But the minimum coverage amount likely won’t be enough in case of a serious accident.
Here’s how your Fayetteville car insurance can help pay for mishaps involving your car.
- Fix Your Car - We officially call this "Comprehensive & Collision Coverage." Nothing required.

Who pays if the accident wasn't my fault?
The driver who caused the accident, of course. Unfortunately, some people drive without insurance.
16.6% of Arkansas drivers are uninsured.
That's when you need “uninsured motorist coverage.” It pays for your vehicle repairs and medical bills if an uninsured driver hits you.
Without it, you could face devastating financial consequences.
Some states require all drivers to purchase a minimum amount of uninsured motorist coverage.
Arkansas has the ninth highest percentage of uninsured drivers in the U.S. But Arkansas drivers are not required to purchase uninsured motorist coverage.
What Affects the Cost of Fayetteville Auto Insurance?
How much you pay for a Fayetteville auto insurance policy is based on how risky you are as a driver. Insurance companies look at several of your personal risk factors, including the following:
- Your age
- Your gender
- Your ZIP code
- Your driving history
- Your car
- The number of drivers in your household
Young drivers, for example, are less experienced behind the wheel and are considered to be riskier than older, more experienced drivers. Teens and young adults should always expect to pay more for car insurance than older drivers.
More expensive or newer cars cost more to insure, too, because insurance companies know their parts cost more to repair or replace if you’re in an accident. If you drive a luxury SUV, you will likely pay more for car insurance than someone who drives a modestly-priced, older car.
Fortunately, insurance companies typically offer discounts to help offset some of the costs for most drivers — even teens. Your Trusted Choice agent can help you maximize the discounts that you are eligible for.

Theft in your city: Fayetteville has a relatively high rate of auto theft, compared to the U.S. overall. Auto insurance rates in Fayetteville may be higher as a result.
Car insurance is important no matter where you live. It helps you pay to repair or replace a vandalized or stolen vehicle, minimizing the time that you are without a car. It also helps you pay to replace any belongings that are stolen from your car.
To minimize the chance of your car being stolen, always take precautions.
- Never leave your vehicle running while unattended.
- Never leave your keys in your car.
- Never leave valuables visible in your car.
- Always park in busy, well-lit areas.
