AgileRates.com is a free insurance marketplace that provides real-time quotes for car and home insurance. It connects more than 200,000 customers per year to the lowest rates from its 70+ insurance partners. According to AgileRates, the majority of its users are eligible for savings of up to 40% on their current car insurance premium.
Pros and Cons
Of all the online auto insurance marketplaces on the web, AgileRates.com has one of the slickest-looking websites. The website is easy to navigate, and users can find transparent information on how AgileRates works and who operates it. Best of all, the site is optimized for mobile, making it just as easy to apply for quotes from your smartphone or tablet as from your desktop.
Like other comparison sites, the most obvious downside is that AgileRates.com doesn’t actually underwrite insurance products. AgileRates.com exists to connect customers with the lowest rates from more than 70 insurance partners. Going through an intermediary like AgileRates may seem like an inconvenience. However, it is actually a good thing because it enables the user to compare multiple insurers in one place instead of requesting quotes from each insurer separately.
Types of Auto Insurance
Through its partnering insurers, AgileRates.com hooks its users up with all the standard forms of vehicle insurance. Minimum coverage requirements vary from state to state, which is why it’s a good thing that AgileRates works with big, nationwide insurers that operate in every state.
- Bodily Injury Liability. This covers all expenses related to bodily injuries suffered by other drivers when you are at fault.
