How To Compare Auto Insurance Quotes

Auto insurance companies have their own unique ways to calculate car insurance rates, but comparing coverage doesn’t have to be difficult. We make it easy for you to compare car insurance quotes with the AARP® Auto Insurance Program from The Hartford.1 With us, you can get great rates, rewards and discounts that can help you save money. We’ve been protecting AARP members and their families since 1984.
When you’re doing an insurance quote comparison, you’ll need to look closely at the policy details. That’s why it’s a good idea to compare car insurance quotes to make sure you get the right policy at the right price.
 
Follow these three steps to help you compare car insurance quotes:
 
  1. Gather your information: Insurers require details to put together your auto insurance quote. This can include your age, driving history, driving records, vehicle information and geographic location.
  2. Select your liability limits and coverage levels: Every driver has unique needs and some states have minimum coverage requirements. Because your policy details impact your cost, it’s important to make sure each quote is for the same type and amount of coverage.
  3. Collect quotes and compare rates: You can use a car insurance calculator to help estimate your costs and compare your insurance quotes. Remember that price shouldn’t be the only thing you consider. Just because it’s the lowest quote doesn’t mean it’s the right coverage for you.

Compare Auto Insurance Coverages

Compare auto insurance When you compare auto insurance, it’s important to compare quotes with the same deductible and insurance coverage. Be sure to find out what your state requires for their minimum amount of coverage. Then, decide if you want to add additional types of coverage or higher coverage amounts of the required coverage.
 
How much car insurance costs will depend on the coverages that you choose, like:
 
  • Property damage liability coverage: Pays for damage that your car causes to property you don’t own, like mailboxes, fences and other vehicles.
  • Bodily injury liability coverage: Helps pay for medical expenses for people injured in an accident you caused. It also pays for legal fees if you cause an auto accident that injures someone else. Bodily injury liability rates vary but are required by law in most states. This coverage would also cover injuries caused to a pedestrian.
Some other types of coverage include:
 
You have options to choose from when it comes to your auto insurance coverage. The AARP Auto Insurance Program from The Hartford can help protect you with many types of car insurance coverage. The type of coverage and limits you choose will affect your car insurance premiums.

Understanding How To Compare Car Insurance Quotes

Insurance prices can vary by car insurance company, but they may also be different for each customer.
Some common factors that car insurance companies look at when calculating insurance prices include your:
 
  • Policy details, such as coverage for collision, deductible amounts and limits. Don’t forget that certain insurance requirements vary by state, which can also impact your rate. Full coverage will cost more than buying just the minimum required, but you’ll have more protection against the unexpected.
  • Geographic location because each state has their own requirements about the amount of car insurance coverage you must carry.
  • Accident history, which shows how safe you are as a driver. If you have a clean driving record, it can lower your insurance rate. Recent at-fault accidents can have a big impact on your auto insurance rates.

Compare Auto Insurance Rates by State
