What Vesta Insurance Group Was Like

It seems as if Vesta Insurance Group only provided insurance for good drivers. 

They didn’t insure drivers with bad driving records or those who had a higher risk, such as new drivers. They also seemed to provide only liability coverage, which kept the rates lower but didn’t cover everything in an accident.

When you are looking for car insurance, talk to your agent about what your needs are. If your car is older or you have more money to pay for repairs yourself, basic coverage may be the best choice.

If you want more comprehensive coverage, so you aren’t financially responsible for as much, then go with that type of coverage.
