______

San Francisco, CA — August 15, 2013

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer insurance company, is now offering motorcycle insurance in Illinois.

Expanding its portfolio of products and services in Illinois from auto and renters coverage to include motorcycle insurance*, Esurance is reaching out to the growing number of consumers who want an award-winning online experience** and the convenience of outstanding 24/7 customer service for all their insurance needs.

This new product covers motorcycles as well as scooters, dirt bikes, golf carts, snowmobiles, and even Segways. A motorcycle insurance policy from Esurance typically includes:

  • $3,000 worth of optional or added equipment coverage that's automatically included in the comprehensive and collision coverage
  • A unique option that pays either the manufacturer's suggested retail price of a current model year motorcycle or the same make and model if it is declared a total loss
  • Trip interruption coverage to help stranded riders face unforeseen expenses like lodging, transportation, and food in the event of an accident or mechanical breakdown
  • Up to $100 of roadside assistance coverage each time a customer needs their bike towed to the nearest qualified repair shop
  • Protection for riding apparel and helmets if they're damaged in a covered collision loss
  • A Multi-Policy discount, a Safety Course discount, and many other terrific discounts that can reduce premiums

Illinois riders who choose Esurance will also have a wealth of useful interactive online tools and technology that make the insurance process easier.
