I currently have insurance with GEICO, and called USAA for an auto quote.  The quote was literally 3 times higher than GEICO!  I shared my GEICO quote with my USAA rep, and while he was really helpful, neither he nor his supervisor could figure out the difference.

I recognize that there are always going to be some differences in rates based on algorithms that insurers use, but as a USAA member, I am concerned that our organization is so out of line with the competition. I want USAA management to know that members expect them to provide good service (which they do) at a competitive price.

I hope someone from management can take the time to look at this and figure out what went wrong - whether it's a problem with my quote or with the algorithm, that results in USAA being out of line with the rest of the industry.

 

I asked the auto representative if he could relay these comments to management, and he said that he had no way to do so.  I then tried sending an direct message to USAA, but received a response saying that they were unable to assist me in that forum, and I should call an auto representative. 

 

So overall, I am dissappointed in the experience - and not just because you weren't the cheapest, but because it feels like USAA isn't making the effort to provide customer service that I expect.  In my mind, that jeoparidizes the reputation of our organization.

@member2018- I recently became a USAA member after realizing I was eligible due to my father’s military service. The first thing I did after my membership was approved was run an auto insurance quote and mine too was much higher with USAA than with Geico, nearly double. It’s such a bummer. Everyone I know talks about how much money they have saved with USAA.
