Located 20 miles west of Boise (along I-84), Nampa is Idaho’s second-largest city with a population of 97,000 residents (as of the 2010 census). Public transportation is provided in the form of bus routs run by ValleyRide, but most of Nampa’s commuters rely on their vehicles. This means that the average driver puts more miles on their car each year than they would if they commuted by other means. More annual miles means more money paid to your insurance company. If you’ve seen your rates go up over the past couple of years, that could be a contributing factor. Another factor is Nampa’s rapid growth. If you are worried you may be paying too much for your coverage, we suggest you compare the growing number of options for cheap insurance Nampa has to offer. The more offers you compare, the better chance you have of saving money.
