I have been with Root for a few years now and when I initially signed up my monthly payment was low and very affordable! With every renewal it increased and by this last renewal I was up to $330/month. I was astonished!!!! No reason or explanation on why it jumped so high! I have a perfect driving record and rarely drive more than 15-20 miles a day. I finally had to cancel my policy and go with another company offering me same coverage/lower deductibles for only $125/month. So disappointed!

It was good while it lasted. Starting out I was saving ~$55 after a few years with them and their new model I'm not saving anything at all. What I really don't like about them is despite the fact that I rarely drive, there's no way to notify them off whether or not I'm the one driving or if it's my car that's in use. I have switched to Progressive and am saving more with additional benefits. I can no longer recommend this company. I definitely suggest looking elsewhere.

I've been with Root for several years now but it's time for me to say goodbye. They got me with a very low rate starting out and every single renewal, despite no tickets or claims, my rate has gone up. It has gone up so much that Nationwide is a cheaper option. One that I will be switching to on March 1st. I'd work on customer retention and rewarding safe driving from loyal customers, because I don't feel very valued, which is why I'm leaving. Just a tip.
