21st Century, formerly 20th Century, is a car insurance company based in Delaware that sells to consumers all over the country. It’s known to be one of the cheapest car insurance companies in Delaware, which, surprisingly, is below the national average for car insurance costs. On this page, we detail how much you can expect to pay for auto insurance with 21st Century, how you can make your premiums even lower, and some of the best aspects of the company in general.

Car Insurance Rates for 21st Century Insurance Coverage

21st Century offers drivers some of the lowest car insurance prices in the nation, with average annual premiums ranging from $1,023 to $1,776. Of course, the cost for each driver depends on many factors. Here are the average costs for various circumstances.

  • Full coverage: Full coverage would cost significantly more at around $1,779 per year.
  • Drivers in their 20s: Young people pay more for auto insurance than any other age group. Car insurance from 21st Century could cost around $5,196 a year for someone in their 20s.
  • Drivers in their 30s: Fortunately, by the time they hit their 30s, drivers’ premiums could reduce to $3,492 a year.
  • Drivers in their 40s: Car insurance prices decrease even more by age 40, with an average annual cost of $2,952.

Saving Money With 21st Century Discounts

Even though 21st Century has reasonable pricing, you should still apply auto insurance discounts to lower your total cost. Your agent will build in your discounts when you first sign up for your policy, and there’s no limit on the number of discounts you can use. Here are the discounts available from 21st Century.

Favorite Features

Aside from the low cost, here are some of our favorite things about 21st Century insurance.

24/7 Claims

We appreciate 21st Century’s 24/7 claims service, because you never know when you’ll get into an accident.

Direct-to-Consumer Sales

21st Century sells insurance directly to consumers like you, cutting out intermediaries like insurance brokers. You’ll buy insurance from Century 21 agents, either over the phone or online.

Free Roadside Assistance

Roadside assistance is necessary, especially for teen drivers, but it’s usually supplemental. That’s not the case with 21st Century, which offers roadside assistance on the house, including lockout service and towing. However, it doesn’t apply to anyone who’s already a customer of AAA or OnStar, two third-party roadside assistance companies.

Mobile App

In all states that require insurance, driving with proof of insurance is a legal necessity. Fortunately, law enforcement will accept digital or physical forms of insurance. In case you don’t have your insurance identity card on you, 21st Century offers a mobile app in which you can view and share your insurance ID. You can also perform these tasks in the 21st Century app:

  • Pay your bill.
  • View your policy information.
  • Call for roadside assistance.
  • Contact the company directly.

The app is available for iPhone and Android users alike.

Refer a Good Friend (RGF) Program

Last but not least, if you refer a friend to 21st Century, you can get nicely rewarded. If you refer a friend and they request an insurance quote, you’ll both receive $25 gift cards to Amazon, Lowe’s, Starbucks, or Walmart. If the friend signs up for a policy, you’ll get a $50 prepaid American Express card. Not too shabby!

Company Background

Today, 21st Century is a car insurance company based in Wilmington, Delaware, and selling to consumers all over the U.S. But how did it get here — to the 21st century?

  • 1958: Louis W. Foster founded the company, then called 20th Century. Originally, it provided car insurance directly to people living in California only. The company was housed in a one-room office in Los Angeles and insured only good drivers.
  • 2003: 21st Century became incorporated.
  • 2007: AIG acquired 21st Century and rebranded it as AIG Direct.
  • 2008: When the recession hit, AIG nearly collapsed and decided to restore the brand as 21st Century. Unfortunately, the rebrand didn’t save the jobs of 500 employees or the four offices that had to shut down.1
  • 2009: Things turned around for 21st Century when Farmers Insurance purchased it for about $1.9 billion.2 Today, the company still prioritizes direct-to-consumer sales over the internet or phone, which allows for low costs.
  • 2018: 21st Century celebrated its 60th anniversary.
