Choosing an auto insurer is sometimes difficult: the rates each insurer offers can vary widely based on your location, age, and driving history, and every company's discounts differ. Erie and Amica are two of the most popular insurers, offering competitively priced policies in most states.

If you are carrying an at-fault collision, speeding violation, reckless driving violation, or DUI in your rear view mirror, Erie could be a better choice than Amica. Each car insurance company prices policies differently after a violation, so it's worth comparing quotes to find out which insurer suits you.
|Violation||Erie avg. annual premium||Amica avg. annual premium|
|At-fault accident (damage < $1,000)||$893||$1,646|
|At-fault accident (damage > $1,000)||$772||$1,152|
Insurance companies use age to outline potential risk, assigning rates accordingly. Auto insurance is typically most expensive for teen drivers — because of their inexperience — and relatively affordable for older drivers. Because every insurance company prices age tiers in a different way, it's smart to shop around and find the perfect policy for you.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose Erie over Amica: Erie offers average yearly savings of $3,128 versusAmica.
