If you've got an at-fault accident, speeding violation, reckless driving violation, or DUI in your rear view mirror, GEICO could be a better choice than 21st Century. Every auto insurance company will handle driving offenses differently, so it's worth comparing quotes to find out which insurer suits you.
|Infraction||GEICO avg. annual premium||21st Century avg. annual premium|
|At-fault accident (damage < $1,000)||$1,857||$2,440|

Car insurance companies rely on a driver's age as an indicator of potential risk, assigning rates accordingly. A car insurance policy is usually more expensive for teens — because of their inexperience — and relatively affordable for older drivers. Because every auto insurance company prices age brackets uniquely, it's smart to shop around and find the perfect policy for you.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose GEICO before 21st Century: GEICO offers average yearly savings of $1,725 versus21st Century.
