Choosing an auto insurance company is sometimes difficult: companies' rates may vary by driving record, age, and location, and every company provides a different set of discounts. USAA and Infinity are two of America's top insurance companies, selling competitively priced insurance policies in most US states.
In an effort to make shopping for car insurance easier, we collected average prices from Infinity and USAA. The below cover a variety of pricing components, including credit rating, driving infractions, and age. Check out the below rates and find the perfect policy for you.
If you have very poor credit, USAA could be the way to go. Typically, USAA offers better premiums than Infinity for drivers with credit scores of lower than 580. Drivers with excellent credit — a score of 800-plus — should lean toward USAA, which typically beats Infinity by $3,041 annually. Check out typical insurance rates by credit score for Infinity and USAA:
|Credit score||USAA avg. annual premium||Infinity avg. annual premium|
|Very Poor (300-579)||$2,682||$7,847|
|Very Good (740-799)||$910||$4,045|
If you are dealing with an at-fault accident, speeding ticket, reckless driving citation, or DUI on your driving résumé, USAA could be a better choice than Infinity. Every insurance company enacts rate penalties differently, so don't be afraid to shop around to understand which insurance company suits you.
|Violation||USAA avg. annual premium||Infinity avg. annual premium|
|At-fault accident (damage < $1,000)||$1,304||$5,774|
|At-fault accident (damage > $1,000)||$947||$4,487|
Car insurance companies use age to outline potential risk, pricing policies accordingly. Insurance is commonly priciest for drivers younger than 25 — due to their increased odds of being involved in an accident — and most affordable for older drivers. Because every insurance company prices ages in a different way, it's worth comparing rates and shopping around.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose USAA over Infinity: USAA offers average yearly savings of $13,427, compared to Infinity.
