Car insurance estimate without having to enter SSN.. see inside
March 4, 2014 5:55 PM   Subscribe

Greetings. 16 year old daughter is completing an assignment for Economics and she needs an insurance quote for a 22 year old female who lives in a smallish city (Baltimore) for a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. She was gonna enter her SSN in an insurance site and say she is 22. I told her (for obvious reasons) no... but we can't find a site which will give us a quote without one. Suggestions?

I would make up an SS# even IF I wanted the quote legit because I don't give that info out for free.

Just make up a name/address/SSN.

You could call a company like AAA directly and ask for a quote instead of going online.

A google search for "anonymous car insurance quote" got me here: www.thegeneral.com/commercials/anonymous-quote-car-insurance/, so one suspects you can do it on The General.

Yeah, call, and just say "I'm calling around for quotes." They will ask, just tell them you don't give that out for just a quote.

Within 2 answers! Thanks all! It's all in how you Google it which I obviously failed at.

thezebra.com

...it was literally designed exactly for the purpose of comparing vehicle insurance quotes without actual personal info. Their pricing estimates tend to be pretty (though not 100%) accurate; they reverse engineer the formula from the rate tables each insurer provides to the state.

Call the company directly. If pressed for SSN and other such details, I would be honest and say it's for a school project.
