car insurance tools

your car insurance toolkit

At Esurance, we've built a smart, modern tool for every aspect of car insurance, from our lightning-fast Express Lane® quoting system to the ultraconvenient claims-tracking tool, RepairView®.

Express Lane

Express Lane

Saving time is good. And saving money's even better. So what if you had a chance to do both at the same time?

Sounds great, right?

That's why we built the Express Lane — a faster, easier way to get your car insurance quote.

How's it work? Well, with your permission, we pull info from the DMV to fill in part of the quote application for you. And that means more time for you to kick back and enjoy your newly insured life.

Comparison quotes

Comparison quotes

The only way to know if you're getting a great price on the car insurance coverage you need is to compare quotes from multiple providers.

Of course, that can get pretty time-consuming. Unless you get a quote from Esurance.

To help you find the right coverage at the right price, we offer an easy way to compare quotes from several leading providers — without leaving our site! And if you see a price you like from another company, it's just a click away.

Why do we do it? Well … we're built to save you money on car insurance. Even if you can't save with us.

Coverage Counselor®

Coverage Counselor

With all the options car insurance policies offer, it can be hard to know just what coverages you need and how high to set your limits and deductibles.

That's why we created the Coverage Counselor.

To get expert-level insights into your car insurance needs, just head over to the Coverage Counselor, answer a handful of simple questions, and in no time you'll have a detailed list of coverage suggestions — all based on the info you provide.

Photo claims

Claims can be a major bummer. But our unique photo claims feature on Esurance Mobile can help speed up the claims process and get you back on the road fast.

After you submit your claim, just upload photos of the damage for appraisal — no appointment required!

Your claims representative will contact you within one business day to provide an estimate for repairs or schedule an in-person appraisal if needed.
