Most Positive Review

By Jimmy
I’ve been with nationwide for many years as a happy customer. I’m looking over the market to see if my rates are high or low.

Most Critical Review

By Tammy
Never could get a straight answer. No one would call me back. Got the run around. My rates kept climbing when my husband and I have perfect driving records.

Ernest
appalling disconnect between field and home offices, with the home usually two weeks behind events in the field. Which causes continuing billing errors which NW does not acknowledge.
Darrell
They are fair
Saleem
The rates I had with them and their prompt and courteous service.
Michael
They are ok just price
Robert
Too expensive for the age of me and the car.
Todd
Price increases
Natale
After I had a serious accident the amount I received for my totaled car had been nickel and dimed so low there was no way to get a comparable car. I understand deductions for mileage etc... but when a top of the line model cant even equate to a bottom of the line model in an older model something is wrong.

Shannon
Nothing remarkable either way.

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.
