What are some cheap car insurance companies for first-time drivers under 20?
I'm a first-time driver and I didn't realize how expensive car insurance is. Are there any insurance companies that are cheaper for new drivers?
“Unfortunately, car insurance for young drivers is universally expensive. That being said, Progressive and GEICO typically offer cheaper rates for first-time drivers.
There are several factors at play in determining your rates, including where you live, what kind of car you drive, your driving record, and the amount of coverage you’re looking for. But your age stands out—drivers under 25 are statistically more likely to get into accidents and file claims.
There are ways for you to lower your premium until you gain more driving experience. You can take a defensive driving course or show proof of good grades to qualify for discounts.”

Why would late payments affect the amount I'm receiving from my gap insurance?
I purchased my vehicle for $19,000. I still owed $16,000 on my loan when the car was totaled. My insurance paid out $11,000. I have gap insurance, but they said they will only pay out $3,500 due to late payments on my loan. How can I get them to pay the full amount?

Am I wasting my money by paying for loan/lease coverage with Progressive and gap insurance with the bank?
I just bought a new car and I didn't realize that gap insurance was a part of my loan. I am paying for loan/lease coverage with Progressive, too. Should I get rid of one of them?
