|Recent Questions||What is your best advice to buy auto insurance for my 18-year-old who is buying a used car which will be paid off?|
The bad news is that car insurance for an 18-year-old on their own separate policy is incredibly expensive — over $3,400 more than the national average. The good news? Typically, we see that combining insurance by adding your kid to your policy is the best route.My son got a DUI, I will be selling the vehicle & removing him from my Geico policy. Do I need to report it to Geico?
If you choose to repair the damage to your son's car using your insurance, you will need to file a claim and tell your insurer what happened. The claim will impact your rates, but removing your son will not impact your rates as much as leaving him on there — because he has a DUI on his record, that would increase rates in addition to the accident. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.Can I get accident forgiveness after an accident?
I'm sorry but you will not be able to have an accident forgiven and removed from your record. Depending on the insurance company, they have specific rules about accident forgiveness — generally, you need to be accident-free for a few years before an accident is forgiven.Does State Farm match auto insurance quotes with other companies?
In truth, no. Car insurance companies determine their rates based on their previous years' filings (loss to revenue ratio) in addition to other factors.See More Questions
|Should I choose a company that is cheaper for my auto insurance or my home?|
There's a couple of things to think about. While price is important, I would make sure you have equal coverage for your home and your auto from both Travelers and State Farm.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.What is an ADOT Code?
Your ADOT code should be listed on your ID card from Travelers. If you don't see it listed there, contact Travelers Customer service. The ADOT code identifies your insurance company to the state.My daughter got into an accident using my vehicle, will my insurance pay for the damages she caused?
Normally the liability coverage on your policy should pay for damage caused to another driver, even if your daughter wasn't currently listed on your policy. However, some insurance companies require anyone who lives in the household be listed on the policy - either included or excluded in order for them to properly determine the risk.See More Questions
