If you're dealing with an at-fault accident, speeding ticket, reckless driving violation, or DUI in your recent history, North Star could be a better choice than Infinity. Every auto insurance company will handle driving offenses differently, so always do your due diligence and compare quotes to understand which insurer is best for you.
|Infraction||North Star avg. annual premium||Infinity avg. annual premium|

Insurance companies use age to indicate risk, pricing premiums accordingly. Insurance is commonly expensive for teen drivers — due to their inexperience — and more affordable for older drivers. Because every auto insurance company evaluates ages differently, it's a smart move to shop around.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose North Star instead of Infinity: North Star offers average yearly savings of $13,553, compared to Infinity.
|Age bracket||North Star avg. annual premium||Infinity avg. annual premium|
Costs aside, North Star and Infinity both have pros and cons, including their discount programs, add-ons, customer satisfaction ratings, and financial stability. Be sure to shop around before settling on an option.
