Car Insurance Shoppers Can Now Take the Express Lane™

______

San Francisco, CA — October 11, 2012

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal car insurance company, is offering a new online tool that helps make shopping for car insurance faster and easier for consumers.

Consumers shopping for car insurance on the Esurance website can now choose the Express Lane experience. Once they enter their ZIP code, they can simply select whether to use Express Lane or enter information about themselves and their car manually. Express Lane can save shoppers time and reduces hassle by automatically pre-filling data* such as:

  • Their (or their spouse's) drivers license number
  • Information about their vehicle, including VIN, year, make and model
  • Insurance information, including the number of years insured and current insurance coverage levels

Esurance uses the latest technology to streamline car insurance, offering an intuitive and efficient quoting process that makes getting car insurance easy for consumers. Express Lane is yet another way that the company is making that experience hassle-free, saving consumers time from having to hunt for information that is sometimes not readily available otherwise.

To help build consumer awareness for Express Lane, Esurance has a television commercial featuring the 80s hit "Situation" from British band Yaz. The commercial is now airing nationally and can also be seen on the Esurance YouTube channel.

*The success of retrieving this information and the ability to pre-fill using outside data sources will vary by user. Esurance does not guarantee that all data can be prefilled for every consumer.
