Costa Mesa, Calif., February 23, 2022 — With rising inflation and interest rates impacting American pocketbooks, Experian® announced today it can help consumers potentially save, on average, more than $900 per year[i] on auto insurance. The company’s new tool delivers multiple, tailored rates from more than 40 leading and well-established auto insurance carriers, allowing consumers to quickly find and switch to an auto insurance coverage plan that meets their needs.
While auto insurance rates are expected to increase in 2022[ii], consumers can now easily and quickly shop for better, less expensive auto insurance through Experian’s new tool. Within minutes, consumers who share their current auto insurance policy with Experian will receive several tailored quotes to discover the auto insurance plan that’s right for them. From there, consumers can easily switch to their new auto insurance carrier all in one place.

“We have cracked the code on shopping for auto insurance and created a hassle-free experience for consumers,” said Hanno Fichtner, Head of Experian’s Digital Insurance Agency and co-founder, CEO of Gabi. “As prices soar on everything from groceries to gasoline, consumers are looking for ways to maximize their budget. Our auto insurance comparison tool allows consumers to do in minutes what used to take hours and possibly save hundreds of dollars.”
For added peace of mind, Experian also offers free active rate monitoring. Its auto insurance tool scours the market on an ongoing basis to find auto insurance deals amongst Experian’s comprehensive network of carriers that may help consumers save money.
Powered by its recent acquisition of Gabi®, a digital insurance agency with access to more than 40 U.S. insurance carriers and insurance licensing across all 50 states, Experian’s expansion into auto insurance follows several innovative offerings by the company to help consumers improve their financial health, including Experian Go™ and Experian Boost™[iii].
Experian Go is a free program that allows consumers to create an Experian credit report without going into debt, and Experian Boost gives consumers the ability to directly add positive payment history for utility and telecom accounts as well as video streaming services to their Experian credit report to potentially increase their FICO® Score instantly[iv].
“We continuously aim to develop products and services that help consumers achieve their financial goals,” said Jeff Softley, president, Direct to Consumer at Experian. “It’s a natural fit for us to help consumers find the best prices for big ticket costs like auto insurance. Along with our credit solutions and CreditMatch™ marketplace that provides personalized credit card offers, this tool is another way we help achieve financial power for all.”
