Founded in 1931, the Allstate Corp. is the largest publicly held personal lines property and casualty insurer in America. Allstate is on the Fortune 500 list of largest companies in the U.S. The company markets private passenger automobile insurance under three brand names: Allstate, Encompass and Esurance.
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.
