At Insurify, our goal is to help customers compare insurance products and find the best policy for them. We strive to provide open, honest, and unbiased information about the insurance products and services we review. Our hard-working team of data analysts, insurance experts, insurance agents, editors and writers, has put in thousands of hours of research to create the content found on our site.

We do receive compensation when a sale or referral occurs from many of the insurance providers and marketing partners on our site. That may impact which products we display and where they appear on our site. But it does not influence our meticulously researched editorial content, what we write about, or any reviews or recommendations we may make. We do not guarantee favorable reviews or any coverage at all in exchange for compensation.

Why you can trust Insurify: Comparing accurate insurance quotes should never put you at risk of spam. We earn an agent commission only if you buy a policy based on our quotes. Our editorial team follows a rigorous set of editorial standards and operates independently from our insurance partners. Learn more.

State Farm offers the highest-scoring mobile app. Customers can use the app to manage their account, request roadside assistance, file claims, access auto insurance ID cards, and upload photos and documents during the claims process.

Customers enrolled in State Farm’s Drive Safe & Save telematics program will need to download the Drive Safe & Save app to record trips and access driving feedback. The Drive Safe & Save app has a 4.6 and 4.1 in the App Store and Google Play Store, respectively. Steer Clear, a telematics program for drivers younger than 25, also requires a separate app.

The Easy Photo Estimate feature offers an estimate of your vehicle’s repairs after you submit a photo of your car’s damage. And Vehicle Care, powered with CARFAX, tracks your vehicle’s service history, notes any open recalls, and helps you create a maintenance schedule.

Drivers enrolled in GEICO’s DriveEasy telematics program need to download the separate GEICO DriveEasy Pro app. The mobile app tracks your driving performance and provides you with scores and feedback.

Drivers enrolled in Liberty Mutual’s RightTrack telematics program can track driving performance and receive scores right in the Liberty Mutual mobile app — no need for a separate app. Its site claims driving an hour per day for a month will use just 18 MB of data total.

Highest-rated car insurance comparison apps

Getting auto insurance quotes from multiple insurers and comparing them side by side is one of the best ways to unlock savings. Several highly rated apps allow drivers looking for new insurance to access quotes in minutes. The best comparison apps make it easy to find the ideal car insurance policy for your needs and budget.

Most car insurance comparison apps claim customers save hundreds of dollars on average after comparing quotes. Car insurance companies can raise your rates after renewal — even if you’re a loyal customer. That’s why Insurify recommends shopping for coverage every six to 12 months to look for cheaper rates.

Insurify: 4.1 rating

Insurify's mobile app makes it easy to start comparing car insurance quotes. Just fill out a short form, set your desired coverage limits, and access customized quotes from up to 20 different car insurance companies. Whether you’re looking for a name-brand national insurer or a regional company, Insurify factors in available discounts to give you an accurate cost estimate.

Customers can even purchase an insurance policy right in the app — or speak to one of Insurify’s licensed insurance agents over the phone. And you don’t have to worry about Insurify misusing any of your data. Insurify does not sell data to third parties, so you won't get unwanted solicitations by comparing rates with the app.

Pros
  • Quick setup and easy to navigate

  • Several customer reviews mention finding better rates with Insurify

Cons
  • Customer ratings aren’t as high as some alternatives

  • Fewer ratings than competitors

Jerry: 4.5 rating

Jerry claims drivers can access quotes from up to 50 insurers in less than two minutes via its mobile app. Its PriceProtect feature factors in relevant discounts, connects you with agents, and offers automatic rate checks to avoid overpaying — all without long forms or unwanted phone calls.

Jerry offers some extra features that might appeal to certain customers, such as a GarageGuard program that offers price information from repair shops. You can also compare car loan options from a directory of top lenders — and potentially refinance your loan right in the app. Plus its DataLock Guarantee protects your data.

Pros
  • Can buy insurance right in the app in just a few steps

  • Fast service without calling an agent

Cons
  • Some reviews complain of inaccurate estimates

  • Some customers cite unwanted phone calls from Jerry

Gabi: 4.5 rating

The Gabi app compares insurance rates from at least 40 different companies, helping customers access the best rate in minutes. Simply upload your existing policy documents, and Gabi will compare your current rates to the broader insurance landscape — pointing you toward the most affordable policy.

Gabi assures users that it won’t share or sell their data and will never send customers unwanted messages or calls. Customers can also compare home insurance, renters insurance, umbrella insurance, and landlord insurance. People new to insurance may struggle with Gabi, as you must upload existing policy documents to compare quotes.

Pros
  • Won’t share or sell your data

  • Can compare other insurance policies, such as homeowners insurance

Cons
  • Must have an existing policy to use quote comparison

  • Recent uptick in negative reviews in the App Store

Cover: 4.7 rating

Cover's mobile app helps drivers find the best rate on car insurance by connecting them with car insurance quotes from at least 30 insurers. Cover breaks the process down into three easy steps: Answer some simple questions about your background, receive the best price, and purchase coverage. Drivers who want to avoid phone calls will appreciate that Cover sends rates via text.

Cover combines artificial intelligence with expert advice to match users with the best policy for them in as little as three minutes — and you can call one of its advisors if you need assistance during the process. While ratings are high in the App Store, recent reviews of Cover skew negative.

Pros
  • Mobile-first platform that uses artificial intelligence to deliver prices

  • You can text your advisor at any time for help

Cons
  • Unavailable in the Google Play Store

  • Reviews mention problems with long load times and bugs

Risks associated with car insurance apps

Car insurance apps often require drivers to enter personal data, such as bank account information, contact details, and driver identification information. Drivers should read their company’s privacy policy closely to make sure adequate security practices are in place.

Security and data concerns

Most auto insurance apps claim they won’t sell or share your personal data. Drivers enrolling in telematics programs should be particularly aware of data usage, as these apps track your driving behavior. Telematics apps often note that they won’t track your location information as you drive.

Drivers concerned with data privacy can enroll in telematics programs that don’t track your location. For instance, Mile Auto simply requires drivers to take a picture of their odometer every month to track mileage and charges rates accordingly.

Despite the privacy concerns, telematics programs reward good drivers for avoiding accidents and traffic violations. But be aware that some telematics programs can penalize users for bad driving habits.

How Insurify evaluated car insurance apps

Insurify evaluated car insurance apps using ratings from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, the number of reviews, and the insurance companies’ market share, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

We took the top insurance companies by market share and compared their Apple App Store and Google Play Store ratings, breaking ties with the number of reviews customers submitted. We also considered whether the insurer offered a telematics program within its main insurance app or if users have to download a separate telematics app.

    Insurify and Jerry are two of the best apps for buying car insurance. Both apps allow users to compare quotes and purchase coverage in minutes.

  • What is the best app for comparing car insurance rates?

    Insurify is the best app for comparing car insurance rates. While many car insurance apps let users see only three or four rates side by side, Insurify lets users see at least six quotes at once. The amount of available quotes lets drivers find the best rate in just a few minutes.
