Insurers rely on a driver's age as an indicator of potential risk, pricing policies accordingly. An auto insurance policy is often more expensive for teen drivers — because of their inexperience — and more affordable for older drivers. Since every insurance company rates age brackets uniquely, it's smart to shop around and find a great rate.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose Farm Bureau Mutual over Safe Auto: Farm Bureau Mutual offers average yearly savings of $5,495, compared to Safe Auto.

Whether or not the company is a "mainstream" provider doesn't mean that you would have a bad claims experience. There are several companies out there that have been around for several years and just don't advertise like other companies.Who is at-fault when parking spot stopper had bolts sticking out of it?
Unfortunately you would be considered at fault for the damage to your vehicle. If you file a claim, it will likely be paid under collision coverage, meaning you'll be required to pay your deductible.If my daughter is uninsured and gets rear-ended by another driver, will their insurance cover her damage?
In most instances of rear-end accidents, the driver who was hit is normally considered to be not at fault so I'd recommend that your daughter contact the insurance company of the other driver to start the claims process. In Texas, your insurance status (or lack thereof) should not keep you from being compensated if you are hit by an at-fault driver.Do car insurance companies share information?
The new insurance company is likely to find out about the accident, but that will come from your driving reports when you buy your policy. The majority of insurance companies request a motor vehicle report (MVR) and a comprehensive loss underwriting exchange (CLUE) report to verify the accuracy of a new customer's driving record.See More Questions
