Which is better, car insurance from GEICO or Progressive?
My mom is a long-time GEICO customer and recommends them, but my boyfriend is pushing me toward Progressive. Who's the better insurer?

The answer to this question depends on factors like price, customer satisfaction, and coverage options, and how you weigh these factors.
GEICO has the edge on average prices, but the cost of your coverage will depend on where you live and your personal profile.
J.D. Power also gives the edge to GEICO in terms of customer satisfaction when it comes to shopping for a policy and filing a claim.
Both companies offer extensive coverage options, but Progressive has options that GEICO doesn’t in some states, including gap insurance, a disappearing deductible, and custom parts and equipment insurance.
The only way to know which insurer is best for you is to get a quote from both of them. If you have questions about your coverage options, the claims process, or anything else, be sure to speak with a representative.

How do you decide what limits of car insurance you should get?
My personal assets are starting to increase, and I read that you should have insurance coverage that will protect that. I do live in an area with expensive cars, so I'm wondering if I should increase my insurance coverage. I think I can afford higher limits and have never been at fault in an accident.
