Choosing a car insurance company can be tough: companies' rates differ by driving history, age, and location, and companies offer an array of perks. GEICO and Liberty Mutual are two of the most popular insurers, providing competitively priced policies in many states.

If you're dealing with an at-fault collision, speeding ticket, reckless driving citation, or DWI on your driving résumé, GEICO could be a better choice than Liberty Mutual. Each insurer has different post-violation pricing structures, so it's worth comparing quotes to understand which insurer suits 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|
Insurance companies use a driver's age as an estimator of risk, pricing premiums accordingly. An auto insurance policy is usually priciest for teen drivers — due to their increased odds of being involved in an accident — and more affordable for older drivers. Because every car insurance company prices age brackets differently, it's worth doing some comparison shopping.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose GEICO instead of Liberty Mutual: GEICO offers average yearly savings of $3,051, compared to Liberty Mutual.
