Overall Rating: 8 / 10 (Very good)

Allied Insurance's auto insurance coverage is well within the industry standard, but doesn't go above the most commonplace offerings. While their financial strength is remarkable, this is principally due to their association with Nationwide, of which they are a subsidiary.

Allied Coverage Coverage

Basic Coverage

  • Property Damage Liability
  • Collision
  • Comprehensive
  • Personal Injury
  • Medical Payments
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist

Coverage & Benefits - 7.2 / 10

Allied Insurance's policies offer the most basic coverage, with little in the way of optional add-ons. Ranging from personal injury to uninsured motorist, as well as collision, their service is no-frills, but still this acceptable.

Customer Experience - 9 / 10

Although Allied Insurance has a low complaint ratio of .36, and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, their large number of negative reviews are certainly worrying. Furthermore, their JD Power ranking averages out to an unremarkable 3.7 out of five, which doesn’t lend itself to fervent recommendation.

As a subsidiary of Nationwide, Allied Insurance shares the former's financial and market strengths. Their ratings of A+ or equivalent, across financial ratings institutions such as Standard & Poor's, Moody's, and AM Best, as well as a sizable marketplace, give them considerable pedigree.
