Most Positive Review

By James
All of the hard work you guys have done to try to find me the cheapest rate and always staying in contact with me to make sure everything is going okay I love this they really are kindness towards their future customers

Most Critical Review

By Jerry
The last three policy periods Allstate has increased my premiums. I have no accidents, no tickets, no DUI's, no nothing and yet you continue to punishment me by raising my rates. Last period I had to raise my deductible from 500 to 750 just so I could continue to pay my premiums. I am VERY, VERY, VERY UNHAPPY with Allstate. Allstate gets a ZERO rating from me.

Jessica
Thanks Allstate for being the absolute worst. Not only is my husband's birthday ruined due to the news of you not paying for a claim YOUR insured did, now i am out of a van, which will in turn ruin my job and make it incredibly difficult to put food on the table for my kid. when calling to file a claim the representative was quick to say they couldn't help. Despite video evidence at the place the incident occurred, allstate has now let us know they are denying the claim and will only look into it if somehow the store will release the footage to us personally. (We all know how that goes), kind of a odd slogan for allstate to ask us if we're in good hands if they don't seem to care if we actually are in good hands.. I worked for allstate and actually loved it, but to see the insured side of things is real eye opening. Glad that I have stuck by USAA as I know I'm covered. Thanks allstate for giving me that reassurance to not using you in the future nor referring others to you as well.

We are very pleased with our Allstate coverages thanks to our woneerful agent!
Ally
They are okay. Trying to become more competitive with other carriers but we'll see how it all works out. Drivewise is a good idea but it can be a handful.
Miles Barkley
Decent price for their rental coverage. Having the app and online account available if I ever wanted to make changes was a nice bonus.
Taye Gonfa
I have been with Allstate for over three years. Every year, my premium goes up despite my clean driving record and my cars getting old. They always tell me it is from the state not them. Finally, I decided to move to a different agency. Then they sent me a bill for outstanding balance also I have already paid in full the month they refer to, and left them days before my next bill is due. What makes this not a burglary in daylight?
Georgia Driver
Allstate sucks. I've been with them for 10 or more years now and every year my rates go higher no matter what. Finally this last increase was too much! Switched to Liberty Mutual and paying less than I have with allstate for all of the last 10 years. RIDICULOUS. Go with someone else....literally anyone would be better than allstate
Aye
My policy changes after 6 months and I cannot afford for it. I need cheaper one.
Gabriel
Good service at a cheap price.

They have been good for the most part
Susan

Methodology

The car insurance quotes displayed are based on an analysis of Insurify’s database of over 40 million quotes from 500 ZIP codes nationwide. To obtain representative rates, Insurify’s data science team performs frequent comprehensive analyses of the factors car insurance providers weigh to calculate rates including driver demographics, driving record, credit score, desired coverage level, and more.

Insurify’s analysis also incorporates the Insurify Composite Score (ICS) assigned to each insurance provider. The ICS is a proprietary rating that weighs multiple factors reflecting the quality, reliability, and health of an insurance company. Ratings used to calculate the ICS include Financial Strength Ratings from A.M. Best, Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch; J.D. Power ratings; Consumer Reports customer satisfaction surveys and customer complaints; mobile app reviews; and user-generated company reviews. 

With the above insights and ranking methods, Insurify is able to offer car insurance shoppers insight into how various insurance providers compare to one another in terms of both cost and quality. Note, actual quotes will vary based on unique attributes including the policyholder’s driver history and their garaging address.
