Drivers are required to carry car insurance in most states by law. If you drive without insurance and cause an accident, you could be sued for damages and have your assets seized. It’s also really important to have the correct coverages if you have a loan on your car. If you don’t have full coverage on your car and you total it, you’ll have to pay a loan for a vehicle that you don’t have and can’t drive.

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👍
