Insurance companies use age as an estimator of risk, assigning rates accordingly. A car insurance policy is often expensive for beginning and young drivers — due to their inexperience — and more affordable for older drivers. Because every insurance company prices age tiers differently, it's smart to shop around and find a great rate.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose Mercury instead of Amica: Mercury offers average yearly savings of $1,949, compared to Amica.
