At Clearsurance, we are developing a true, customer-first insurance marketplace where people can find the best insurance companies and products to meet their specific needs and unique buying preferences. Everything we do at Clearsurance is governed by our core values: 1) we are transparent; 2) we are authentic; 3) we are optimists; and 4) we are scrappy. Clearsurance is simplifying insurance shopping powered by customer generated reviews, ratings and data.
Clearsurance allows you to see what other insurance customers are saying about their insurance companies, and how those companies compare. This is possible thanks to the Clearsurance community, which is made up of thousands of honest, unbiased insurance consumers who have shared feedback on their real-life insurance experiences.
Our users have reviewed and rated their homeowners insurance, automobile insurance and renters insurance companies, factoring in everything from price and customer service to how quickly the company handles claims. All of these reviews serve as the basis for our Clearsurance rankings, which are generated by our proprietary algorithm. It determines a company’s score based on consumer ratings for the overall company and customer service, as well as their likelihood to recommend and renew with the company.
Clearsurance was started by a team of technology and insurance entrepreneurs who believe that insurance is just too confusing for consumers. Our beta prototype was released in December 2016, and, to be completely honest, we were unsure if people would care enough about insurance to take the time to share their experiences. But within twelve months, we realized our concerns were unfounded. By then, more than 50,000 people had taken the time to review and share their insurance experiences. The end result is that consumers have a more transparent way to learn about and find insurance.
Let’s face it: insurance is confusing, and, very often, it’s expensive. And, legally, many of us are required to have it.
But not all insurance companies are the same. How do you know if you are paying a fair price, and if your car insurance or homeowners insurance company is reputable? And, most importantly, how can you be sure that your insurance company will be there for you when you need them most?
The best way to get honest answers to these questions? Ask the customers. They know the strengths and weaknesses of their insurance company, and how a company really performs when the pressure is on. And that’s exactly who you’ll find in the Clearsurance community: real insurance consumers, just like you. They’re providing you with unbiased and honest feedback and insights that you can’t find anywhere else.
Consistent with its mission towards greater transparency, Clearsurance does not keep its rating formulas in a black box. Our algorithm analyzes a range of inputs from our independent community of insurance consumers, including:
The algorithm also takes into account the percentage of what policyholders say the company does well versus the percentage of what policyholders say the company could do better.
The Clearsurance customer ratings are derived entirely from customer reviews and ratings.
Clearsurance provides insurance shoppers with a ranked list of the best insurance companies in each state, by each covered product line. The ranking is entirely based on the companies’ Clearsurance scores, which are derived from the ratings that customers give companies when they submit a review.
The following factors must be met in order for a company to appear on any of our rankings pages:
Clearsurance does not manipulate the order of those companies that appear on the rankings pages in any way. The only factor that affects a company’s position is the rating that the company earns from its customer reviews that have been published on the Clearsurance site.
For our rankings of agents and agencies, our algorithm analyzes a range of inputs from our independent community of insurance consumers, including:
The Clearsurance agent and agency ratings and rankings are derived entirely from customer reviews and ratings.

The insurance-related information that you provide to Clearsurance is used to educate consumers and assist them in purchasing an insurance policy. Your review will help first-time insurance buyers make an informed decision when choosing an insurance provider, as well as provide information and tips to existing policyholders on how to improve their coverage.

Clearsurance immediately connects you to a network of insurance consumers who have shared information about their real-life insurance experiences. The information that you share about your homeowners insurance, auto insurance or renters insurance will help others make smarter insurance decisions. The more insurance reviews and ratings submitted by you and consumers like you, the more accurate Clearsurance’s rankings will be.
In the future, Clearsurance will also connect you directly to insurance companies and insurance professionals, simplifying your insurance shopping experience.
Committed to Transparency
Clearsurance is committed to transparency. You might be asking: How do you make money? Our partners compensate us. But those partnerships don’t affect our writing and editorial integrity, which are based on rigorous research. We will never take payment in exchange for a guarantee of a favorable review.
We believe everyone should be able to make decisions related to auto insurance with confidence. We don’t partner with every insurance provider out there, but we are proud that the information we provide is objective, balanced, and free. We strive to provide a comprehensive list of company reviews and topics, regardless of compensation.
We partner with insurance companies, agencies, agents, wholesalers, aggregators, brokers, and other financial institutions so we can provide you with the best offers for insurance quotes to help you make informed decisions and find the best insurance rates. We are always working to add more partners.
Our goal is to partner with many different companies so that you can make a decision with the best information available and find the rate and policy that best meets your needs. As always, we never let compensation affect our editorial reviews and our advice is always the same: compare rates and quotes from many different options so you can make the best choice for your specific financial situation.
We partner with many of these different companies for rate information, insurance quotes, and other insurance shopping comparisons, and we may receive payment if you apply for and receive one of their products.
Clearsurance is consumer-focused, and our mission to deliver peace of mind by helping you make smarter insurance decisions always will remain at the forefront of our journey.
