I live in California, and I need car insurance. Where can I find the lowest rates on car insurance?

Finding the lowest car insurance rates is all about shopping around and getting multiple quotes.
First, it’s important to remember that teen drivers will almost always have higher rates than an older driver.

More expensive cars are very likely to produce higher insurance premiums, especially for teen drivers. Sports cars and brand new cars will also have higher rates.
