How do you get car insurance with bad credit?

I have a poor credit history from my 20s and I haven't been able to make significant credit gains in the past couple of years. How do you get car insurance with bad credit?

Answer
Even if you have bad credit, you’ll be able to purchase an insurance policy for your car—but it might be more expensive.
GEICO and Nationwide typically have the cheapest rates for drivers with poor credit histories. If you were in the military, USAA is usually the cheapest option.
One of the best ways to find affordable car insurance with a bad credit score is to shop around and compare multiple policies. Jerry is the super app that helps you save time and money on your car-related expenses—including insurance.
