Best Auto Insurance Companies 2020: How Allstate Auto Insurance Stacks Up

With a total overall score of 84.77 Allstate placed seventh overall in this year’s consumer survey. Allstate’s highest score was an impressive 85.93 giving it second place for its website and apps’ usefulness. Claims handling was a sticking point for consumers as Allstate came in sixteenth place with a score of 87.59. Still, it missed cracking the top 10 for claims by less than two points. And even so, 96% of consumers surveyed said they planned to renew with Allstate, the second-highest percentage for that metric, and 86% said they’d recommend the company.

Gauging an insurance company

Before buying with a company it is wise to check on a company's financial strength and complaint record. The A.M. Best rating listed above gives you an idea of Allstate's financial strength to pay claims. A complaint ratio can be found on the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) site. The median complaint ratio from the NAIC is always 1.00. This means half of the insurers have a complaint ratio of under 1.00 and half have a ratio above. Basically, numbers lower than 1.00 are better with fewer complaints than the median and a number higher than 1.00 has more complaints than the median. For auto insurance, Allstate (NAIC# 19232) had a complaint ratio of 1.10 for 2018. 2019 complaint numbers will be available in 2020.

Consider Allstate for handshakes, teens or conservative drivers  

Allstate has more than 12,000 exclusive Allstate agencies and financial representatives across the U.S. and Canada, making it highly accessible for anyone who prefers to deal with an agent in person.

Parents with newly-licensed teens might benefit from taking teen drivers with them to meet with agents in person to discuss rates and coverages. The Allstate Foundation has created a number of resources geared toward helping teens become safe and responsible drivers. Pair these online resources and live agents with Allstate’s DriveWise app for monitoring of safe driving, and you’ve got a thoughtful plan for your teen driver.

The DriveWise program is a pay-as-you-drive plan that uses telematics to monitor your driving behavior. Conservative drivers should see a discount for consistently safe driving behaviors such as moderate breaking, staying below 80 mph and a low number of miles driven daily.

With DriveWise and the Allstate Safe Driving Bonus you can get Allstate Reward points for completing safe driving challenges. You also can receive a safe driving bonus every six months you are accident free and you can receive deductible rewards, in the form of money off your deductible, for each year you are accident free.
