How to get a free quote from Savvy

Savvy can provide you with a variety of quotes in under one minute. To get a quote:

  1. From Savvy’s homepage, tap Start Saving.
  2. Select the company that currently insures your car, or choose My car is not insured.
  3. Select Continue if you agree to let the company check on your current insurance.
  4. Answer questions about your online login for your current insurance company and tap Submit. Or choose to fill out forms manually.
  5. View your current monthly rate and select companies that interest you from the recommended list. You’ll be redirected to a Savvy partner’s site.
  6. Savvy prefills basic information for you. Fill in missing details and view your quote.
  7. You’ll get a text from a Savvy insurance agent asking if you have questions and suggesting another company where you can get a quote.

If you don’t connect your online account with your current insurer, you’re presented with companies like Everquote and Progressive to get quotes. Then, you’ll fill out the quote forms for those companies manually.

What info do I need to apply?

You can bypass filling out forms by providing your:

  • Current insurance company name
  • Online account login

If you have to input your information manually, you may need:

  • Basic personal info: Name, phone number, email address
  • Drivers license number
  • Driving history
  • Car VIN or make, model and year
  • Annual mileage
  • Additional drivers’ name and driving history

What discounts and perks does Savvy offer?

Savvy doesn’t leave you without assistance after going through the quote process. You’ll get access to:

  • Insurance agents. After using Savvy’s service, a licensed agent texts you to answer your questions.
  • Help switching companies for free. If you like your quote, you can call on your Savvy agent to help you transfer your policy to your new company.

Savvy car insurance reviews and complaints

Unfortunately, Savvy doesn’t have many customer reviews or business ratings online to help you understand what its customer service is like. Other review sites praise the company for saving shoppers time while comparing a wide variety of insurance companies.

However, a few reviewers didn’t like that you have to fill in some information during the quote process and that you can’t filter by specific coverage like rideshare insurance.

What coverage can I get through Savvy?

The exact coverage that you can buy depends on the insurance company. But you can bet that Savvy’s partners offer the most common types of protection.

  • Bodily injury liability protects you if you injure other drivers or passengers and helps pay legal expenses if they take you to court.
  • Property damage liability pays to repair or replace other people’s property or belongings like the other driver’s car if you cause the damage.
  • Collision covers your own car’s repairs or another car when you’re responsible for an accident.
  • Comprehensive kicks in for nearly any type of damage that’s not related to hitting another car. That includes storm damage, vandalism or theft.
  • Uninsured or underinsured motorist comes into play when another driver hits your car or injures you but doesn’t have enough insurance to pay for all your expenses.
  • Medical payments help you or your passengers pay for medical bills if you’re injured in an accident.
  • Gap insurance makes up the difference if you total your car and your insurance payout isn’t enough to pay off your car loan.
  • Roadside assistance steps in when you break down on the road because of a flat tire, dead battery, running out of fuel or any issues that require you to tow your car.
  • Rental reimbursement pays for your rental car for a specified number of days if your car needs repairs after an accident.

How do I contact Savvy?

Savvy offers support by text, phone or email. But the company’s way of communicating works differently than most insurance companies.

  • Text. Initially, a Savvy agent reaches out to you by text after you connect your online account during the quote process. You can respond by text.
  • Call. You can set up a call with the agent who reaches out to you for your initial quote. You’ll call that agent’s phone number rather than a centralized customer service line.</li
