Foster City, CA – May 4, 2020 – With the COVID-19 crisis still unfolding, households across the U.S. are taking matters into their own hands when it comes to their finances. One area that’s getting a lot of attention is car insurance costs. To help, is offering consumers the ability to estimate their insurance costs with its recently launched car insurance estimator tool.

Getting an estimate on car insurance rates helps consumers map out their finances and provides a baseline cost. This helps avoid overpaying when shopping for a policy, and just as critical when shopping for a car, as buyers need to factor in insurance costs in their car-buying budget. 

Along with this tool, has published an overview that breaks down the key factors that affect car insurance costs, including:

  • Type of car

  • Age & years of driving experience

  • Geographic location

  • Marital status

  • Driving record

  • Annual mileage

  • Credit history

  • Chosen coverage, limits and deductibles

You can access the tool and read the overview here: Car Insurance Estimator - How To Estimate Your Car Insurance in 2020.

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 car insurance quotes at least every year. Doing so will help find the best rates for the best coverage for your situation. Editorial Director Michelle Megna is available to discuss the advantages of the Car Insurance Estimator tool to save money during this trying time for consumers, and where the most savings lie right now.
