Car insurance is more expensive for younger drivers because they have little or no driving experience. In the eyes of most insurance companies, the more driving experience you have, the less likely you are to submit a claim.

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👍
