Do you have any tips on how to get good, affordable car insurance for a college student who wants her own policy?

Answered by Car Insurance Expert Tessa on February 22, 2021

I'm a college student and I've moved out of my parents' place permanently. Now I need my own car insurance policy. How do I get good insurance that's reasonably priced?

Thanks for your question! For a younger college student who wants their own policy, I recommend getting an older car you can just carry liability on. It’s also important to maintain a clean driving record; practicing defensive driving will help with this. You may also qualify for student discounts.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
