Deciding on a car insurance company can be hard: companies' rates may vary by location, vehicle, and driving record, and companies offer an array of discounts. Nationwide and Infinity are two of the top insurers, offering high-quality policies across most of America.
To help take the sting out of shopping for car insurance, we've pulled average rates from Infinity and Nationwide. These take into consideration a variety of rating factors, including credit score, driving record, and age. Examine these figures and find the perfect policy for you.
If you have extremely bad credit, Nationwide could be preferable to Nationwide. On average, Nationwide offers better prices than Infinity for prospective clients with credit scores of 579 or less. Those with excellent credit — a score of 800 or better — should consider Nationwide, which typically beats Infinity by $2,844 per year. Check out average insurance costs by credit tier for Infinity and Nationwide below.
|Credit level||Nationwide avg. annual premium||Infinity avg. annual premium|
|Very Poor (300-579)||$1,593||$7,847|
|Very Good (740-799)||$1,109||$4,045|
If you're saddled with an at-fault accident, speeding violation, reckless driving citation, or DUI on your driving résumé, Nationwide could be a better choice than Infinity. Each car insurance company prices its policies differently, so always do your due diligence and compare quotes to figure out which insurer suits you.
|Citation||Nationwide avg. annual premium||Infinity avg. annual premium|
|At-fault accident (damage < $1,000)||$1,836||$5,774|
|At-fault accident (damage > $1,000)||$1,475||$4,487|
Insurance companies rely on a driver's age as an indicator of potential risk, assigning rates accordingly. An insurance policy is commonly most expensive for beginning and young drivers — due to their inexperience — and relatively affordable for middle-aged drivers. Because every insurance company prices ages uniquely, it's wise to compare rates and find a suitable policy.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose Nationwide instead of Infinity: Nationwide offers average yearly savings of $12,667, compared to Infinity.
