Use the Root mobile app to get a free (and fair!) car insurance quote

Forget everything you know about insurance forms. Download the Root app, burn through the 45 second signup, and start your test drive.

At Root, your rate is based primarily on how you drive, so better drivers receive lower rates. We use mobile technology and data science during your 2-3 week test drive to determine the quote you actually deserve. Once your test drive is complete, purchase a policy with just a few taps. Now, that’s easy.

Root policyholders enjoy these mobile app features:

Proof of insurance, right in your pocket

Open the Root app on your smartphone for immediate proof of insurance—no more fumbling through the glove box! Your ID card is on the home screen to make your information easy to access. (We mail you a physical copy, too.)

  • Manage your auto insurance policy

    It’s easy to manage your policy right in the app. Add or remove drivers and vehicles, pay your bill or adjust your billing date, and modify your coverage. You always get to see how your changes would affect your rate before you commit.

  • File a claim

    Accidents are tough, but the Root app makes filing a claim easy. Whether you were in an accident or your windshield is cracked, the app walks you through the process to document the problem. Snap photos of the damage to make the process even faster.

  • Request roadside assistance

    Need a jump-start or a tow? Roadside assistance comes with every Root policy. Simply make a request through the app.

Root Reviews

    I work for a car insurance company. They gave me a monthly rate of just over $500. I didn’t take that and went with Geico for about $240 a month. Root gave me a quote for $105. As a 23 year old, this is amazing. Instead of being treated based on my age, I’m being rated based on how I actually drive.

    I have saved $100 month and improved my full insurance coverage. Incredible!! I adore it.

    I've never been able to apply for insurance this quick and easy. Very self explanatory and simple. Life should be just simple, without the complications and complexities. Get Root, because life is simple.
