We recently purchased a car insurance policy from The General Insurance for our 16 year old son. He had just gotten his license when he had his first wreck. Unfortunately, the rate from our insurance company was significantly increased. So, the best choice was to buy an extra policy for him through The General. The price was much lower than I expected, especially for a 16 year old with an accident on his record. The… read more


Awful. I am losing my license for three months because of their horrible lack of customer skills and billing practices. But most importantly because they have liars for reps. They say that everything is fine we took care of it come to find out that was a lie. Wish I would have read these reviews before going with them. I will be seeing a lawyer about this lemon company. Anyone wanna join. I talked to other insurance companies and they are definitely in the wrong here. Run while you can. Pay a little more and go with a reputable company because these jokers need to be put outta business. I could only imagine if you got in an accident then you would really be in trouble.

Rental Reimbursement: This optional coverage reimburses you for expenses associated with renting a vehicle if your car is involved in a covered accident. While the coverage limits vary depending on your vehicle type, you can expect coverage to start at $20 per day for a maximum of 30 days. To use The General’s rental reimbursement, your policy must include comprehensive and collision coverage, a restriction not typically imposed by other insurance companies.
I have been with The General for a year and a half now, paying all the premium religiously. I recently hit a curb when turning into a parking lot, damaging a transfer case. They refused to covered, saying that it is a mechanical issue, and not caused by the impact. This company is a fraud. Stay away from them, go somewhere else. They will find ways to deny your claim.

If paying the absolute minimum necessary for car insurance is something that's important to you, the General is definitely the way to go. I don't really drive a whole lot since I live in an area where most of what I need is within walking distance, so I didn't see the point in spending a huge amount of money on insuring a car I hardly use. The General offered me the lowest rate by a… read more
If you’re drawn to The General because of a poor driving record or credit score, we recommend looking at Progressive first. While Progressive scores lower in financial strength and claims satisfaction than the top insurers in the industry, it offers unique discounts and supplemental coverage options specifically tailored for high-risk drivers, including a rare discount for drivers under 18. Because of its rare coverage options and financial strength ratings, Progressive is likely a better option than The General for most drivers.

This is a chance for you to showcase any place you love in as an original way as possible.
At The Zebra, we know better than most just what a pain buying car insurance can be. We also know that students suffer from higher-than-average policy rates. Talk about a double-whammy. That’s why, this year, we’ve decided to continue The Zebra’s annual scholarship with the goal of helping to alleviate the financial pressures of college-bound students in Oklahoma, while also getting an insider view of the Sooner State.
If your employer does not offer health insurance or you're self-employed, you'll need to explore your insurance options. The federal healthcare marketplace is a good starting point; alternately, you can contact insurers directly to see what type of coverage is available in your state. Again, the same criteria used to evaluate an employer's plan would need to be taken into account as you compare policies, in terms of the cost and coverage. 
The General Automobile Insurance Services, Inc. (The General®) is a licensed insurance agency that is a subsidiary of PGC Holdings Corp. (PGC) which is an affiliate of American Family Insurance. Through its insurance company subsidiaries and their predecessors, PGC has been writing automobile insurance in many states throughout the country for over 50 years.
The General is tech-savvy, offering a sophisticated online portal, app and live chat function. And while you can manage or change your coverage on those platforms, to cancel your policy, you’ll need to get in touch with an agent over the phone, in person or by mail. Expect the last-ditch sales pitch, but know that you have the right to cancel your policy at any time.
The General specializes in insuring “nonstandard” drivers — also known as high-risk drivers. Your anonymous online quote includes the minimum car insurance required for your state, with the option to pay more for additional coverage or benefits. If you have a prior history of multiple infractions or just want affordable car insurance, The General might be right for you. Compare your options to find a provider that’s right for you.

24/7 Roadside Assistance: If you want roadside services, such as tire changes, battery replenishment, fluid delivery (gas, oil, etc.) or towing, you’ll want to purchase this optional coverage. The General’s roadside assistance is administered by Nation Safe Drivers (NSD). When you request roadside assistance, NSD will administer up to one service free of charge per instance. The towing service has a maximum benefit of 15 miles or $50, whichever is reached first. To request roadside assistance, The General’s customers can dial 1-800-338-2680.
My family and I have been doing business with The General for our car insurance for a few years now and we’ve never had a problem. I love the fact that you can do everything online. Choose and purchase your car insurance, print ID cards, and pay online. We even take advantage of automatic bill pay, so that we are assured the bill gets paid on time every month. I’d definitely recommend this company!

In insurance, the insurance policy is a contract (generally a standard form contract) between the insurer and the insured, known as the policyholder, which determines the claims which the insurer is legally required to pay. In exchange for an initial payment, known as the premium, the insurer promises to pay for loss caused by perils covered under the policy language.
Allstate has had past customer complaints of offering a "low, attractive premium" to get new customers to switch to Allstate. This is common practice with many insurers, so although it seems unfair to increase premiums after the insurance company has gotten a new client, new business discounts or incentive programs to gain new clients is not necessarily something that one should consider a negative if used within reason.
According to NAIC complaint data, customers of Allstate complain less than the national average for complaints received by auto insurance companies. Allstate's "Claims Satisfaction Guarantee" may help in reducing the number of complaints lodged against the insurer. With the guarantee, the insurer gives customers a six month credit for their premium if they have a dissatisfactory claims experience.
This is a $10.00 fee that is applied to your account for a reinstatement related to non-pay cancellations. For example, if you miss your payment due date, and cannot pay before the cancellation date on your non-pay cancellation notice, a $10.00 fee will be applied to your account if and only if you decide to reinstate your policy. Elephant will never charge you a reinstatement fee if your policy has been canceled in error.
If you need help finding out if a loved one had a life insurance policy, the Louisiana Department of Insurance may be able to help. You may submit a request to the Department for a search to locate a missing policy. We send these requests to all companies which are currently licensed to sell life insurance policies in Louisiana. Please know that companies that have been licensed in the past and are no longer licensed in our state will not receive a search request. Some companies may not be able to search their files electronically, so it is possible that there may be some active policies which cannot be located.

In the various reviews and ratings, Allstate did not win any of J.D. Power's awards. However, when we look at the claims ratings, they certainly ranked higher than their overall shopping experience. In some cases, an insurance company shopping experience may not be as slick, but I would put more weight on the customer satisfaction on claims settlement and handling since this is where an insurance company has to be able to deliver its top service. If you are thrilled with the shopping experience, but then get thoroughly disappointed in a claim, the value is not really there.

I recently acquired car insurance through the General.com and my experience was ok. I was quoted a reasonable price for my driving record which was definitely blemished. I got my paperwork in quickly and they returned the favor by getting me insurance fast and cheap. It was very easy and hassle free. I would definitely recommend this insurance company.


Auto insurance premiums depend on the insured party's driving record. A record free of accidents or serious traffic violations typically results in a lower premium. Drivers with histories of accidents or serious traffic violations may pay higher premiums. Likewise, because mature drivers tend to have fewer accidents than less-experienced drivers, insurers typically charge more for drivers below age 25.
Thankfully, many employers provide health insurance benefits to full-time and even some part-time employees. If you do not currently have health insurance coverage this is the first place to check as it will generally be the most affordable. If you're married, you may both be able to receive coverage under just one of the employer plans. When both employers make health insurance available, a careful comparison can help you decide which plan to use. Consider the co-pays, deductibles, premium costs, network coverage and covered expenses to determine which plan yields the most benefits.

The insurer allows you to buy a policy if you have a suspended or revoked driver’s license, as long as you have been licensed at some point and have a driver’s license number to put on your application. The company is authorized to file an SR-22, a form for high-risk drivers submitted to your state’s DMV or traffic authority that shows you carry your state’s minimum liability requirements, in any state where you are applying for insurance.
Worst insurance company ever. My daughter hit a ditch in my. My car has been at the wrecking yard for a month now. They keep saying they are still investigating. The wrecker service is charging everyday. I called again this morning to find out if they are done and a very rude women said they are investigating it still and they probably are not going to pay for it because she was driving it and… read more

Although insurance companies do their own internal customer service and claims satisfaction surveys, it is notable that consumers are able to post their own independent reviews on various websites or even Google for local companies. These reviews should also be referenced when looking at an insurance choice. It is also helpful to view independent studies that take a snapshot of what the generalized impressions are of insurance companies across a variety of areas. One example of independent study is the series of reviews and ratings by JD Power.
