What matters to you?



Esurance was built to save. By leveraging technology to streamline traditionally cumbersome and costly insurance processes, we're able to reduce operating costs. Plus, we offer big discounts to help you save even more on car insurance.



Our award-winning website is the place to be if you want to research and buy your car insurance — or just about any insurance product — online. In fact, esurance.com earned a Best in Class award from the Customer Respect Group for its ability to help customers take care of business.

After receiving renewal information from my current auto insurance carrier, I wanted to make sure I was paying the lowest price possible. I immediately checked quotes on Esurance and was pleased to learn they could offer me a quote several hundred dollars cheaper. I applied, called an agent, and was already printing out my new insurance card within 20 minutes.

Fast, free quoting

With Esurance, you can get a quote, buy your policy, and see your insurance cards, all online. And with Express Lane®, we've made the buying process even faster and easier by giving you the option to have us look up info on your cars (like VIN, make, and model) as well as previous insurance info (like prior deductibles and limits).

You can even compare your Esurance quote with rates from other top companies, right here on our site, to make sure you're getting a great price on great coverage.

Everyone with whom I associated at Esurance made the process of filing my claim and getting my car repaired as painless as possible. Everyone was terrific, friendly, accommodating, and generally a pleasure to work with — from the claims rep, to the man who came to my house to take pictures of the car, to the body shop Esurance recommended.

As an insurance company, our whole purpose is to be there for our customers at claim time. A.M. Best, an independent assessor of an insurance company's ability to pay claims, rates Esurance's financial strength "Superior," so you know you can count on us. Plus, as an Allstate company, we combine a commitment to innovation with the steadfast backing and extensive experience of the nation's largest publicly traded personal lines insurer.
