Was using geico previously. They jacked up the prices upto 2.5k for renewal this time - and thts just for 6mths. Is everyone paying that much of crazy amount for car insurance? >$400 per month for 2 cars.
What are better alternatives for auto insurance? Progressive showing quote of about 1.5k for six months for the 2 cars.
Any help appreciated! TIA

- LinkedIn PopoversWhat cars do you have? I use Geico, and I pay around $600/6 months for 1 car. Did u try Costco?
- New zoombasfOP has traffic violations which affect the quotes drastically if you are under 25. I used to pay 450+ for 1 car per month and its a German sports car. Had 3 speeding tickets, one of them had 2 points.
It depends on the price of the car, age of the driver, number of traffic violations, type of violations and the category of the car and many different factors.

Get a driving abstract from your previous country that covers 5 years of safe driving. It can bring your rates down significantly with geico.
Who else is on your insurance? What kind of cars? Any claims?
- eBay eyxitsjtjDid you get traffic violation citations and traffic points under your driving history within last 3-5years? OR Is your age under 25? There are other coverage aspects as well that can jackup your rates so make sure you choose correct coverages and limits.
I (33 yr old) have geico and I pay $565 for 6 months for 2 cars: 2017 Honda Pilot - comprehensive, 2005 Acura RL - liability only. I have bundled home insurance with them as well but I don’t think that the discount benefit on auto insurance is THAT big!
