How is Progressive's car insurance?

Their rates seem affordable, but does that mean I should switch? I'm currently insured with GEICO. I've been seeing ads for Progressive and am considering switching.

Answer
Progressive is an extremely popular car insurance company. They insure a wide variety of customers, making it possible for customers to find an affordable rate even with:
  • Violations
  • Tickets
  • Accidents
  • Suspended or expired licenses
If you’re considering switching to Progressive, you should first request a quote. You can do this by requesting a car insurance quote online or use the Jerry app. We’ll get you multiple free quotes, customized to your needs, from different providers, so that you can make sure you’re getting the best deal on the coverage you need.
As every insurance company determines rates differently and offers different coverages, you’ll want to decide which coverages are important to you. If you finance your car, you’ll want to ensure you have a full coverage policy. If you don’t, you may end up saving money but have less coverage.
You’ll also want to think about anything else that’s important to you in a company. If you hate talking on the phone, an online-based insurance company may be better than a more traditional company.
Additionally, the type of insurance you require is important. If you need multiple lines of insurance, like home or RV, you may want to work with a larger insurer versus a smaller company.
Whether it’s Progressive or another company, you want to feel confident about your new policy and ensure you’ve examined all aspects of a policy before deciding to make the switch.
