I'm 18 and my dad gave me a 2020 Toyota as a gift. What kind of car insurance should I get?

Because teens have little driving experience, they’re at higher risk of getting into an at-fault car accident. You’ll want to make sure that with a newer vehicle, the insurance includes comprehensive and collision coverage to help repair the vehicle in the event of an accident. It’s also a good idea to increase your liability coverage to make sure you and your family are fully protected from any lawsuits.

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👍
