Picking a car insurance company can be tough: rates may vary by driving record, location, and age, and every company's discounts vary. GEICO and Liberty Mutual are two of the most popular insurance companies, selling high-quality policies in most states across the US.
To simplify the comparison process, we have collected average policy prices from Liberty Mutual and GEICO. The below cover a number of rating factors, including credit history, driving infractions, and age. Take a look at these rates and find the perfect policy for you.
If you have very poor credit, GEICO could be the best option for you. Typically, GEICO offers more affordable rates than Liberty Mutual for drivers with credit scores of lower than 580. Insurance shoppers with exceptional credit — a score of 800 or better — should favor GEICO, which typically beats Liberty Mutual by $728 per year. View common insurance rates by credit tier for Liberty Mutual and GEICO below.
|Credit level||GEICO avg. annual premium||Liberty Mutual avg. annual premium|
|Very Poor (300-579)||$2,051||$3,228|
|Very Good (740-799)||$1,120||$1,878|
If you're carrying an at-fault accident, speeding ticket, reckless driving citation, or DUI offense in your rear view mirror, GEICO could be a better choice than Liberty Mutual. Every insurance company enacts rate penalties differently, so always do your due diligence and compare quotes to understand which insurer is best for you.
|Violation||GEICO avg. annual premium||Liberty Mutual avg. annual premium|
|At-fault accident (damage < $1,000)||$1,857||$2,776|
|At-fault accident (damage > $1,000)||$1,580||$2,112|
Auto insurance companies rely on a driver's age to indicate risk, pricing premiums accordingly. Car insurance is usually priciest for teens — because of their inexperience — and relatively affordable for middle-aged drivers. Since every insurance company rates ages differently, it's worth doing some comparison shopping.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose GEICO before Liberty Mutual: GEICO offers average yearly savings of $3,051, compared to Liberty Mutual.
