Who has the best car insurance for international students?

I will need car insurance for my new vehicle, but I am an international student. What company offers the best price for international students? I heard insurance was really expensive in my situation.

The cost of car insurance in the U.S. depends on the carrier and several other factors. Some factors insurance companies look at are:
  • Your age
  • Driving record
  • Credit history
  • Address
  • Type of vehicle you drive
Since you’re an international student, you don’t have a driving record established in the U.S. Your car insurance will be more expensive until you can obtain a state driver’s license as limited driving history or experience will impact rates.
That said, many car insurance companies write policies for international students, so shopping for car insurance quotes online is the best idea. One company you’ll want to check out is Progressive. They often offer policies for international students and foreign driver’s licenses.
If you need help shopping for car insurance, go to Jerry. A licensed broker that offers end-to-end support, the free Jerry app gathers affordable quotes and helps you find the best insurance rates. Jerry’s friendly agents can also help match you with a perfect policy by phone or text.
