Methodology For This Study

For this study, EverQuote analyzed self-reported monthly premiums from over two million users looking to save money on their auto insurance rates. This information, along with Connecticut users' current auto insurance company and ZIP code at the time of entry, allowed us to determine the analysis you see here. It is important to remember that EverQuote users, like all drivers, differ from one another in many ways and that can affect the overall price of car insurance. Age, gender, and number of drivers in a household can all influence the price of car insurance. However, we did work to ensure a fair comparison of our numbers, by comparing only the reported premiums from users who are similar to one another.
