  • Automobile, homeowner's?

    You get discounts if you have multiple cars on the same insurance. You'll also get discounts for having your home or apartment covered. Iheard Geico was terrible! We use Allstate and are happy with them.

  • It really depends on where you can get the best discounts. We have Geico and get a great deal because we are military. We did plenty of shopping around and they were the lowest for us.

  • If it's auto It really depends on the company and the vehicles you have. We switched companies to get mutli policy discount with household coverage and then changed vehicles. We had to switch back because the new vehicle was double with the new company compared to the old.
    Make sure when you get quotes you are comparing apples to apples as the rates change a lot based on your choices.

  • If you're talking about car insurance- we found that the cheapest company was actually Geico. But we also rent and renters insurance with Geico was something like $400 a year.

    With Allstate the car insurance was a little more expensive, but the renters insurance was $75 a year.

    I recently found out that Allstate agents have a little say in how much your premiums are. If you choose to go with Allstate, call several agents and see what kind of price they can give you. Also remember that the agent doesn't need to live near you.
