When shopping for insurance, you want to make sure you buy a policy from a company that is competitively priced, reliable, and offers you adequate coverage. The price of the insurance policy is the biggest consideration for most customers when deciding on a particular insurance provider. Clearsurance rankings are based exclusively on customer reviews and ratings across multiple value-based categories cusch as price, service and claims adjudication and processing. The customer reviews and ratings speak for themselves in determining which companies are the best for 2021, all while taking all of those factors into consideration.

What makes an insurance company among the “best” companies?

Clearsurance evaluated companies on a number of factors based on the things that matter with the weightings below*:

  • Price rating (50%)
  • Overall experience rating (25%) and
  • Customers’ likelihood to recommend the company to a friend (25%)

Please note that our algorithm was changed slightly this year from previous year’s rankings.

Based on customer feedback, Clearsurance has weighted importance of price even more heavily than in past years for 2021. Customers consistently mention price as an essential factor in deciding which insurance to purchase. When customers write a review on Clearsurance, they are asked to rate the company’s price, which takes into account each customer’s perception of price.

Here are the 2021 Best Company Ratings below and the average scores that customers gave each company across all of the factors that determined the rankings.
