Traditional car insurance base driver’s rates on a number of factors. There is usually a very long and detailed questionnaire, that ask questions like number of eligible drivers in the house, how long have you been driving, your current zip code, your age, the number of accidents, number of any moving violations, do you rent or own your home, job title, highest level of education, the number of miles driven etc. Now you may ask yourself, what do all these questions have to with getting my car insured? Traditional care insurance companies take the answers to all these questions and load them into an algorithm to determine the risk factor of you having an accident. Based on those answers, or the results the algorithm uncovers, traditional car insurance companies will decide to insure you or not insure you, or give you a higher rate. The bottom line is traditional car insurance is based a combination of many factors, but the most important factor is demographics and driver’s history.
