What it’s all about

Enjoy the drive. And in the rare case of an accident, we are right there to help.

We started Root because car insurance should be about how you drive, not who you are. Right now, you're paying for car insurance based only on your demographics. Things like your age, gender, and credit score. Not all 26-year old females with a credit score of 500 drive the same. Why should they pay the same price for insurance? Responsible drivers should pay less, and they do with Root.

Car insurance.
Just another app
on your phone.

You can download Root in the iPhone app store. It's the easiest way you'll ever buy insurance. Install the app, provide some basic information, and you're good to go. After 1-2 weeks of driving as you normally would, the app will let you know how you did. If you're a great driver, you'll get great insurance.

We insure Ohio.
Illinois is coming soon.
Then, the galaxy.

Our team is based in Columbus and Root is now available in our home state. Insurance works a little different in every state. So we do our homework and expand into other states only when we know that we are 100% ready to offer you amazing service.

How to pay less for car insurance.

The old way.

Get married.
Buy a house.
Get a college degree.
Live in a rich neighborhood.

Crazy, but that’s how other insurance companies calculate your rate.

The new way.

Drive well.
That’s it.

That’s what we do.
No nonsense.
