The postal code of your place of residence is decisive for the price of car insurance. Even within the same city, contributions vary by as much as 16 percent. In Berlin-Grünau, a family pays an average annual insurance premium of 443 euros for their fully comprehensive Golf VII. In the most expensive postcode area, Berlin-Gesundbrunnen, an average of 513 euros is due. That is a plus of 70 euros, with otherwise identical tariff characteristics.

In a comparison of the 15 largest German cities, car insurance prices within the same city also differ particularly in Hamburg (15 percent) and Cologne (10 percent). The smallest differences are found in Essen and Stuttgart (6 percent each).

Car owners generally insure their most expensive vehicle in the city center.

In almost every city examined, the most expensive zip code areas for auto insurance are in or around the city center. In the suburbs, consumers tend to insure their cheapest cars.

“Traffic is usually particularly heavy in the city center, so accidents are more common.”says Dr. Rainer Klipp, Managing Director of Motor Vehicle Insurance at CHECK24. “In many cases, there is also a lack of parking spaces in the city center, which increases the risk of vandalism and theft. Insurers take this into account when calculating their premiums. Therefore, more car insurance is owed in the center of the city than to the outskirts.”
