Liberty Mutual charges an average of $98 a month for liability car insurance before discounts. Its full-coverage rates average $325 a month.

Policy typeAnnual rateMonthly rate
Full coverage$3,895$325

Liability insurance covers injuries and property damage you cause to others in a car accident. Full coverage includes collision and comprehensive, which cover damage to your own car.

The amount you pay for car insurance depends on several factors, including your driving record, credit history and vehicle. Since each company weighs these factors differently, we recommend that you compare car insurance quotes from multiple companies.

The savings you can get from Liberty Mutual’s car insurance discounts can add up quickly.

Like most insurance companies, Liberty Mutual offers a generous discount for bundling your car and home insurance.

You can get another significant discount by signing up for RightTrack. The program uses a smartphone app to monitor your driving for 90 days. If you drive safely enough, you can save up to 30%. Unsafe driving may result in a price increase unless you opt out in time.

Liberty Mutual rewards teachers with a discount and customized auto insurance protection for school-related activities. For example, the company waives your collision deductible if you damage your car while driving on school business.

Liberty Mutual also offers discounts for:

  • Owning a home
  • Being an active or retired military member or reservist
  • Avoiding insurance claims and traffic violations
  • Choosing a paperless policy
  • Buying your policy online
  • Young drivers who maintain a B average or better in school
  • College students who go off to school without a car

What does Liberty Mutual homeowners insurance cover?

Liberty Mutual homeowners insurance covers damage to your home and belongings. Its standard policies also cover temporary living expenses after a covered disaster, plus liability claims and injuries to guests.

Its water backup endorsement is a common add-on that pays for cleanup and repairs from a backed-up sewer or drainage system.

Standard home insurance only provides limited protection for valuable items such as jewelry. Liberty Mutual gives you two options for bolstering your coverage.

  • A scheduled personal property rider gives you the best protection. This add-on requires you to provide appraisals for each item you add to your schedule.
  • Liberty Mutual’s blanket jewelry coverage increases your protection without making you submit appraisals upfront. You still have to provide appraisals, receipts or other documentation for a claim.
