Penny Gusner, consumer analyst for, observes, "It’s interesting to see the possibility of some exclusivity in membership within the top three; one is military, and the other two are affiliated with AAA and are focused primarily in California."

USAA requires the applicant, applicant’s spouse or applicant’s parent to be actively or formerly involved with a branch of U.S. military service. CSAA and Auto Club of Southern California don’t require AAA membership, however, Gusner adds, it may be a nice way to get some additional benefits, like lock out service and roadside assistance.

Residents of the Golden State aren’t short of choices, but going with an insurer who is completely focused and familiar with one of the most densely populated areas of the country seems to be a good choice. But just because the company stationary reads, "California" doesn’t mean it’s the only state covered: CSAA writes coverage in 23 states plus the District of Columbia.’s Best Auto Insurance Company survey removes the guesswork from finding the best companies in the industry.
