What about online companies that cut out the middleman?

Auto insurance agents serve a purpose, but Georgia consumers also have the option to buy direct over the internet. Some companies, such as Farmers Insurance and State Farm, that are more known for using agents, additionally provide the ability to get a quote and buy online, and consumers should do that if you prefer not to work with an agent.

If you’re uncomfortable with not having someone to ask questions when buying online, this is a normal reaction for first-time shoppers. Online insurance companies that allow you to purchase coverage have customer service departments for getting questions answered. You may also access live help and 24/7 access that you can use before buying.

Do online companies provide lower prices? Many people think so, but it’s hard to say for sure since there are so many factors that can increase policy rates. Common logic is that a customer who purchases direcly from an online company prevents the agent from taking a cut. But in most cases, promoting brand recognition is pricey so rates may not be all that different from traditional agents.
