How much does driving behavior impact your insurance rate?

Rates based primarily on how you drive

We are committed to removing scores of credit and focusing more on your behavior behind the wheel when offering you a rate.

We think it’s fair to offer a rate that takes into consideration more than just your credit score and occupation. Traditional car insurance companies tend to focus on demographics like age, ZIP code, and occupation, but we prioritize your safety by saving you more on your drive with Root.
