No. Buying directly by quoting online or calling instead of going through an agent could result in different prices for Progressive policies because these areas of our business make independent decisions about the expenses they incur and the prices of their products. When buying through an agent or broker, your rate includes the commission paid to the agent or broker for selling the policy. When you buy directly from Progressive, the rate reflects the cost of building, staffing, and maintaining the sales centers and marketing costs of that aspect of our business.
No matter how you purchase your Progressive policy, you’ll always receive the benefits and services we offer to all of our customers, including unparalleled 24/7 customer service, claims support, and online service.
