Progressive is a public company owned by the shareholders. Which one of the thousands of owners don't you like? [emoticon]

I am not positive but I believe Larry is referring to Progressives giving to known progressive causes. I for one will not use progressive for this reason. Just as i don’t use AARP because they give to progressive causes as well. We have State Farm for over 20 years and are quite pleased with the service we have had from them. We are members of AMAC which is AARP for conservatives. For many of us the political position of Progressive and AARP aren’t worth the discounts.

If you have had Progressive for years your rate is not likely to increase. But for new policies Progressive uses something akin to bait and switch. You will get a low rate to get you signed on. Then you will see considerable rate increases until you find it way more expensive than the others. making it necessary to start looking for another provider. This has been our own experience as well as others we know. We now have a policy more expensive that Progressives initial quote but less than the Progressive policy after the immediate rate increases. Our driving record has been clean for over 30 years and our credit score is very good thank you. Chuck

Ron, I’ve never had Proggressive Insurance on a motorhome so I can’t comment on there rates! But, before I got married and had a RV, I had Proggressive insurance on my auto. My wife shopped around and found me insurance with Nation Wide for $900.00 less a year for the same coverage. That made me so angry I never went back to Proggressive, so far in the past 25 yrs. In reality it’s my fault for not shopping around, but that experience still bothered me.

After getting several more additional quotes, and reading all of the comments here, I ended up going with Allstate. They were less than my original company and a little bit more than progressive.
I dealt with an independent agent that wrote policies for several different companies and they were able to give me their own opinion of various insurance companies. I guess I will see what happens when the policy goes up for renewal next year.
I did get some good info from them which was to NOT use the Allstate, or any other insurance company's roadside service policy since ANY usage counts as a claim against your insurance, which will show on your personal claim record that is available for other companies to see.
The other was that I could take the ONLINE driving course(55+ drivers) and lower my rate about $15 for each driver that takes the course. This discount is good for three years and the course costs around $20.
I found the idea of taking an ONLINE course completely useless in determining if someone 55 or older has the physical capabilities to drive a vehicle safely.
Thanks to all for your input.
