Insurance companies use age to outline risk potential, pricing premiums accordingly. Insurance is usually more expensive for drivers younger than 25 — due to their increased odds of being involved in an accident — and relatively affordable for middle-aged drivers. Because every insurance company prices age brackets uniquely, it's a smart move to shop around.
