Liberty Mutual vs. USAA Car Insurance Rates

Car insurance rates vary by person and location. Rates also depend on the car insurance company you choose. There are many factors that determine the cost you'll pay for car insurance.

Of course, rates aren't the only factor. Many reviews like the following show that choosing auto insurance is complicated:

"I have been using USAA for my home and auto insurance for a decade now, as well as for my mortgage. What the company may lack in competitive pricing when compared to some other insurance companies, they more than make up for with customer service and the quality of the the services that they provide. I have had to replace my roof and repair massive damage to my home and car after a major storm, and I was able to do so with ease. I would recommend USAA to anyone who is willing to pay a little more for a quality product."

Liberty Mutual Overview

Liberty Mutual employs more than 50,000 employees worldwide and offers a wide range of insurance products. Aside from car insurance, you can also purchase homeowners, renters, life, business, motorcycle and many other types of insurance. If you’re looking to insure multiple products through the same company, Liberty Mutual does have a multi-policy discount to help you save.
If you’re planning to buy collision coverage, Liberty Mutual has a way for you to lower your deductible over time — at some cost to you. The Liberty Mutual Deductible Fund is essentially a way for you to put aside money over time so you don’t have to come up with your entire deductible at once after an at-fault accident that requires a claim. You can read more about the program here, but in essence, you and Liberty Mutual contribute each year to a fund (up to $100 annually) that’s then used to pay your deductible if you have an at-fault collision.

One potential way you can save with Liberty Mutual is by enrolling in the insurer’s usage-based program, which it calls RightTrack. Liberty Mutual monitors your driving habits, and if it deems you to be a safe driver, you can see savings of up to 30 percent. RightTrack monitors things such as your acceleration, hard braking events, the number of miles you drive, the time of day you drive and rapid acceleration.
