Best Auto Insurance Companies in Denver

Our overall recommendation for car insurance companies goes to GEICO. It had the best rates overall and possesses excellent financial stability and consistent customer service: JD. Power gave GEICO a four out of five ranking in its claims satisfaction survey. For our sample driving profile, GEICO offered rates 35% cheaper than the city average and less than half the price of the most expensive insurer, Colorado Farm Bureau.

If you prefer having an in-person relationship with your agent, we recommend State Farm. Its rates were only a few dollars more per month than GEICO, but there are numerous State Farm agents around the Denver area—a service that GEICO does not provide.
