Insurance companies use age as an indicator of potential risk, assigning rates accordingly. A car insurance policy is usually priciest for teen drivers — due to their increased odds of being involved in an accident — and relatively affordable for drivers aged 25 or older. Because every insurance company evaluates age tiers in a different way, it's wise to compare rates and find a great fit.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose Mercury over Infinity: Mercury offers average yearly savings of $12,874, compared to Infinity.
