We created the Terrible Quotes campaign to address a “hard market” in the insurance industry – insurance rates going up across all providers due to lower gas prices (cheap gas = more drivers = more accidents/claims). Building off of a very successful digital campaign, we had some fun pointing out how easy it is to get a great quote from SafeAuto can give you by highlighting the terrible quotes that are out there in the world. (Especially lately)
Car insurance shopping is a grudge purchase, something that has to be done legally. Let's acknowledge the terrible to showcase how easy it is to shop SafeAuto.
