If you're dealing with an at-fault collision, ticket, reckless driving violation, or DUI in your recent history, Progressive could be a better choice than Allstate. Each car insurance company prices its policies differently, so it's worth comparing quotes to understand which insurance company suits you.
|Violation||Progressive avg. annual premium||Allstate avg. annual premium|
|At-fault accident (damage < $1,000)||$2,720||$3,006|
|At-fault accident (damage > $1,000)||$2,245||$2,290|
Insurers use age to outline potential risk, assigning rates accordingly. A car insurance policy is usually more expensive for drivers younger than 25 — due to their inexperience — and relatively affordable for middle-aged drivers. Because every insurance company rates ages in a different way, it's wise to compare rates and find great coverage.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose Allstate over Progressive: the former's average annual rates are $1,806 less than the latter's..
