An auto insurance policy is often priciest for young drivers — due to their inexperience — and relatively affordable for drivers aged 25 or older. Since every insurance company evaluates age brackets differently, it's wise to compare rates and find a great fit.

|Recent Questions||Are some insurance providers better suited to my needs than others to get the best rate?|
Because most coverage options can be matched across insurance companies, I think what you are really looking for is the best customer service/claims support for the best cost. Right off the bat, I know Geico probably wouldn't be an option for you with a leased vehicle.See More Questions
|Should I drop my 25yo son from insurance?|
To answer your first question, will removing your son from the policy help decrease your premium, it depends. Some companies are going to charge you because the claim was made on your policy so your rates can still be impacted at renewal, even if you take your son off the policy.Should I get my insurance company involved or pay for the damage myself if I backed into a tree?
It will ultimately depend on your deductible and the extent of the damage. Unfortunately, backing into a tree will be considered an "at-fault" accident if you file a claim with your insurance company.See More Questions
