If you are saddled with an at-fault crash, speeding ticket, reckless driving violation, or DUI in your recent history, USAA could be a better choice than Infinity. Every insurer will handle driving offenses differently, so it's worth comparing quotes to figure out which insurer suits you.
|Infraction||USAA avg. annual premium||Infinity avg. annual premium|

Insurers rely on age to estimate risk, pricing policies on a sliding scale. Insurance is often expensive for drivers younger than 25 — thanks to their inexperience — and more affordable for drivers aged 25 or older. Since each insurance company rates age brackets differently, it's smart to shop around and find a great rate.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose USAA over Infinity: USAA offers average yearly savings of $13,427, compared to Infinity.
