«Return to Blog List Comparing RideBeside with Competitors – January 2018

Our 2018 annual cost and features comparison with competitors shows that there really is no comparison! Whether you’re looking at cost or features, RideBeside is the overwhelming winner. All the info is in the table below, but I want to highlight the following:

  • In terms of cost, RideBeside is more than $100 less than it’s nearest competitor for the first year, and more than $200 less at the end of the second year.
  • For features most useful in helping your teen become a better driver, RideBeside is in a class by itself; maybe not surprising given the fact it was developed specifically for that purpose.
