I have a friend who swears by AARP's driver insurance policy, for affordability. But obviously, there's an age qualification. But they only accept drivers with a perfect record. If you make a claim on the policy, they shunt you down to their 3rd-world level service, which is terrible, from what I'm told.

Who is the actual carrier? Is it AARP sponsored, with a private carrier? 1 claim is ridiculous, many companies have accident forgiveness now.

Both Nationwide and 21st Century are good companies--I have Nationwide and have dealt with the other. I can't recommend Farmers.

I think it's through the Hartford. Well, I'm not sure, here in NM. AARP insurance got booted from the state, because there was a new law that said all insurance companies had to have offices in-state, and the Hartford didn't. So I don't know, now.

Well, in order to get the highest possible discount, the drivers on their main program have to have spotless records. Otherwise, you pay more, and get 3rd class service, from what I hear.

Oh, well I don't know. There's tons of auto insurance companies.

It's good to require claims offices in-state though. Keeps em up to date with state regs better and case law , and the judges can stare right at the man with the checkbook instead of an intermediary independent adjuster.

Geico has excellent customer service, but I dropped them after years of faithful service and went with State Farm for much better rates. I checked out Wawanesa after hearing about their cheap rates, but they didn't work for me. They don't even give renter's insurance quotes by phone and their car insurance was too limited for me. State Farm had the lowest car insurance rate, lowest renter's insurance, plus I got a free life insurance policy--all for less than Geico's auto policy alone.

I'll never go back to Progressive. I've had 21st Century before and they were okay, but not the cheapest.
