Fourthandeye posted a week or so ago about the insanity of DC car insurance. Well, I’ve just gone through the process of switching from Allstate to Geico, and want to report back to tell everyone to shop around. Egads, shop around! Allstate wanted more than three times what Gieco is charging me! This isn’t specifically to endorse Geico, as there were a couple of other insurers that had similar quotes to them (and others that were similar to Allstate). But it is to urge everyone to show around and do due dilligence: owning a car in the city can be expensive, but there can be much variability in these costs.
