New tool uses data analysis to provide customized auto insurance rate estimates in less than a minute  


Foster City, CA – February 4, 2020 – Get an estimate of your car insurance costs based on your location and driver profile by using’s new tool designed to help you budget for your coverage.


The cost of car insurance is a major component of any household budget, so it’s wise to know what you can expect to pay. Getting an estimate of your car insurance rate helps consumers map out their finances and provides a baseline cost. This is helpful when shopping for a policy, to avoid overpaying. It’s also critical when shopping for a car, as drivers need to include insurance costs in their car-buying budget.


Estimates are calculated using rate data for nearly every ZIP code in the nation, for adult drivers of all ages, for multiple coverage levels, and other variables, so results are more customized than with other tools.


Get estimates by providing just five pieces of information:

  1. A  ZIP code
  2. Whether or not you currently have auto insurance
  3. Whether your vehicle is owned, leased or financed
  4. Your age
  5. Whether or not you own a home


With the tool, consumers receive auto cost insurance estimates for three coverage levels:

  • State minimum coverage
  • 50/100/50, meaning $50K (per person)/$100K (an accident for medical bills related to an accident you cause)/$50K (for property damage that you cause)
  • 100/300/100’s experts advise drivers to compare auto insurance quotes at least every three years -- annually is even better. Doing so will help find the best rates for the best coverage for your situation.


“Getting an estimate of your car insurance rates takes time, knowledge and research. It can be a challenging task. But it doesn’t have to be,” says Penny Gusner, senior consumer analyst for “Our car insurance estimator tool provides customized estimates in less than 30 seconds based on your age, location and other variables.”
