Overall Rating: 9.2 / 10 (Excellent)

Despite MetLife's considerable size, longevity, and name recognition; their coverage, discounts and financial ratings are fairly average. This doesn't mean that MetLife is a poor choice for car insurance, however, as their sheer amount of time in business is a testament to their strengths. However, it may be wise to compare their quotes with others in the industry.

MetLife Coverage

Basic Coverage

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

Additional Coverage

  • Rental Reimbursement
  • Towing & Labor Cost

Coverage & Benefits - 9 / 10

With almost the same array of coverage options as its competitors in auto insurance, MetLife has a tough time standing out. The same holds in the realm of additional benefits, where glass repair, rental car reimbursement, and towing & labor costs are the options available.

Financial Strength - 10 / 10

MetLife has more than a century in business, underwrites their own policies, and possesses solid financial ratings with all the premier financial rating institutions. Their outlook as far as claims paying ability is solid into the conceivable future.

Pricing & Discounts


  • Safe Driver
  • Student
  • Bundled Policy

Pricing and Discounts - 9 / 10

Compared to nearly all of its competitors, MetLife offers remarkably few discounts. Though these do include bundled policies, safe driving, and student discounts, the limited number makes certain that not everyone will qualify for one.

Just switched from MetLife as of today and will be saving over $3100.00 per year in Auto Insurance. All of the other major companies beat what Metlife was charging me by at least $2500.00 per year. They were gouging us badly...!
