Angelica ** at Freeway Insurance Inc is the best agent! Angelica customer service is beyond exceptional. She was able to turn a bad situation around. I purchase insurance in July from Freeway… The call was transferred to her and she was amazing...

I just bought a policy from a wonderful gentleman named Richard ** (Representative Golf Course location in Rio Rancho, New Mexico). I’m on a fixed income, he gave me several options/quotes. He found me, all the things I was looking for. He is kind, patient and very helpfu...

What is Freeway Insurance?

Freeway is an insurance brokerage company that compares rates from various providers to help you find the best auto coverage and price. It works with drivers with previous DUIs or tickets and those who require SR-22 policies. Freeway employs both English- and Spanish-speaking agents, ll available in person or by phone. It’s a popular choice for high-risk drivers, but customer reviews often report high brokerage fees or other hidden fees.

Freeway Insurance auto coverage

Freeway Insurance doesn’t directly sell coverage. Instead, it connects you with various auto insurance companies. Depending on the provider you choose, coverage options might include:

  • Collision: Covers damage to your vehicle in case of an accident regardless of who’s at fault.
  • Comprehensive: Covers damage not related to an accident, such as fire, theft, acts of nature and more.
  • DUI: While not technically an insurance policy, it’s difficult to get insurance with a DUI on record — Freeway says it can help those with poor driving history find coverage.
  • Gap: Pays off your loan balance if your car is totaled.
  • Liability: Covers property damage when you’re at fault.
  • Medical payments: Covers medical costs for you or anyone else involved in an accident regardless of who’s at fault.
  • No-fault: Also known as personal injury protection. Covers medical expenses and possibly loss of income, essential services, survivor benefits and accidental death and funeral expenses.
  • Rental car reimbursement: Covers rental car costs while your covered car is repaired.
  • SR-22: Proves you have insurance meeting your state’s minimum requirements. Usually required for high-risk drivers.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist: Covers accidents with drivers who either don’t have adequate insurance or no insurance at all.

Freeway auto insurance quotes and rates

Freeway’s pricing varies greatly depending on a number of factors: your location, driving history, age, gender and more. The company claims it can match drivers to affordable insurance no matter their circumstances, but keep in mind Freeway charges brokerage (and other) fees. Several customer reviews mention final payments significantly higher than the initial quote.

Discounts can help lessen your premiums. Freeway offers:

  • Bundle discounts
  • Good driver discounts
  • Military discounts
  • Multicar discounts
  • Student discounts

Is Freeway Insurance good?

If you have a ticket, DUI or other strike on your driving record, Freeway claims it’ll find a policy that meets your budget.

It's my opinion to charge poor people the max amount on broker's fees is a rip off. There should be some kind of law against big business putting business before compassion. I'm a single father of two small kids. During this pandemic hardship I was swindled in paying more in broker's fees than actual car insurance. The supervisor I complained to stated poor or no compassion has no place in business. I didn't care about paying broker's fee but max was applied to me 30-215 dollars. I would be cool paying a hundred but the max for a single father during this pandemic. WOW Shame on you FREEWAY.

Horrible service! It took me more than a month to get my policy cancelled. Every time I called, they would transfer me to another department or ask to prove that I have a new insurance. I spoke with at least ten people and more than 6 emails, they still charged me again. I would never do business with them, nor recommend it to my friends.

    My agent completely mislead me... He pocketed my 6 months payment 370.00. I've called multiple times being passed around.. Nothing was disclosed. I never received any paperwork or emails showing where my money was going until I started investigating.. Freeway is not an insurance agency. Do not use them. They are shady brokers who will rob you.

    Liars, Thief’s and poor Service at Freeway and Cost U Less. Customer Care Sucks! Troy quoted us $225 down and $87 a month undercutting his fellow Salesperson by $25 down. Troy then deducted the $225 from credit card before sending us contract. When we saw the extra $127 due in two weeks in said he thought he told us (3 people were told the same lie). We called Customer Care and 3 calls and about 3 hours on hold they said son shouldn’t have online signed contract and we %}^^{ pound sand. They don’t care that their people lie and cheat their customers. They refuse to take care of Customers! Don’t go there!!!

    March 18th we signed up with Freeway insurance to later find out we didn’t actually need insurance yet so we canceled right away. We were charged $123 that day and were told we’d be refunded. 2 weeks later they charged me another $200. We called to get that refunded and they assured us it was a mistake and it all would be refunded. They asked, we provided bank statements proving those charges happened, which we provided. 2 weeks later we call to get an update on our refund. The agent looks up our information, confirms bank statements have been provided and we’ll be issued a refund in probably a couple weeks. Things are backed off because of the coronavirus, understandable.

    Today we receive a phone call informing all we’ll be issued is $10. Of course we’re not happy with that so out of the pure kindness of their hearts they offer us $50 to resolve the issue. I attempt to call them back to come up with a more practical number and I’m given the run around literally for hours to the point it was almost (almost) laughable, I ended up in a freeway insurance out of Washington (I’m in CA).

    Finally I get the top boss, supervisor Gabriel. He’s out of the corporate office, so I’m told. He assured me, "I’m the last form of communication and that the manager doesn’t take calls". I explained to him the situation and he told me, "Sounds like you’re declining my $50 offer from earlier". I told him, "No, I’m not declining your offer but you have to understand I’m trying to get back as much as I can for of my refund and I don’t see how $50 is justifiable to the $323 owed". He told me it should be $10 but out of the kindness of his heart he’s bumping it up to $50! I asked who he was and he was and that’s when he told me he was the supervisor, Gabriel. I asked if could speak to a manager and he told me no, then proceeded to tell me since I’m asking for the manager I must be wanting to decline his $50 offer, then he told me he could just transfer to me to another supervisor and I could get nothing. Feeling defeated, I hung up.

    As a company I have been with for years I was very disappointed to hear how quick they were to cancel my insurance and not grant me an extension for non-payment, during this crisis. Thanks for doing me the favor. I am now a happy Progressive customer.

    Original review: March 3, 2020

    Well they do give the lowest prices no arguing there. But when I paid on Feb. 25th 2020, my agent, Jessica **, told me my downpayment would cover me the first 30 days then afterwards it'll be so and so a month.. I got my policy in the mail to find out my down payment which was doubled my actual monthly payment did not cover me 30 days but only 15. With concerns, I call customer service and ask to speak to a supervisor. Mauricio, who answered asked for the policy number and such and so no problem. But when he asked what the problem was, I told him it's personal info and between the supervisor and me.

    He then told me he won't transfer me until I tell him. Knowing my right to speak to a supervisor, whose product I just paid for, without having to give him my personal information, I told him I'm not tell him and to transfer me. He told me no, not until I answer him. Being a little worried, I asked who for his first and last name and employee number and he said he's not telling me until I tell him my social, name, number and address. Right then I hung up.

    I called back to speak to someone else and asked him to transfer me to a supervisor or to drop my policy immediately just for him to hang up on me. So now I have negative effects on my credit because no one would simply let me talk to a supervisor, I have late payments because I have to start paying 15 days after instead of a whole month like being told. So I sent an email to the CEO Joseph Waked a few days ago and to this day, still nothing.

    They refuse to explain fees, send you email documents to sign that are not completed or illegible. I ended up paying $298 for 19 days of PL & PD coverage for a 1996 Jeep!! Then they stalled around for 2 days when I was trying to cancel the coverage. And to add insult to injury charged an additional $44.76 cancellation fee!!

    This is a big scam of money. I would not wish this on anyone. They give you a price, tell you what you want to hear then charge you more than once and double without even contacting you. That's the reason they want you to get it drafted. I cancelled them now. They saying they sent money to other locations. I do not recommend them at all.
