Deciding about car, house, and rental insurance can help if you have recommendations from others. Describe experiences you've had with various agents and whether or not it's worth switching car insurance down here or keeping it at your permanent address. Include addresses, phone numbers, or websites of agents where applicable.
Car insurance for international students
If you're new to the country, everyone needs car insurance to drive a car legally. You usually need to keep your insurance card in your car or on your person while you drive so that if you are stopped, you can show it to prove you're insured. When I first came here, the only people willing to insure me as a foreigner were Progressive. Rates in general for foreigners are higher until you've had your car and US drivers license for at least a year. I've heard that State farm is good as well. Posted 2-8-07
