Both companies promise not to drop members, offer accident forgiveness and have a mobile app.
They differ in other coverage areas. For instance, Progressive offers pet injury and a vanishing deductible, which Geico does not. Both insurers have discounts, including multi-vehicle, driver training and multi-policy. However, Geico offers discounts not found with Progressive, including airbag and safe driver. The company that’s a better choice depends on your specific situation. Geico usually has lower premiums than Progressive.
