Our mission is to create and provide insurance for the modern world®.

Esurance is singularly committed to being the leading provider of insurance products and services for today's consumers who want to feel empowered and confident in their insurance decisions. We have innovative technology and great people to give our customers a rewarding, hassle-free experience, competitive prices, and amazing service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (because that's when life happens).

And if something bad does happen, we help our customers recover quickly through access to information, tools, and people who care. We constantly strive to make the insurance experience better — and maybe even people's lives a little better — by valuing our customers and truly listening to their experiences and ideas.

We do all of this with the backing of Allstate, a longtime leader in the insurance industry, assuring our customers that we will be there when they need us most.

When you're shopping for insurance, there are a lot of factors to consider. But at the end of the day, only one thing matters. Right? You want to know (for sure and for certain) that your insurance company can pay your claim. We can.

Esurance is backed by Allstate. In business for more than 80 years, this Fortune 100 company has total assets exceeding $130 billion.

With Allstate's proven know-how and financial strength behind us, you can count on us to be there for you when things go wrong. Just file your claim online or over the phone and we'll handle the rest.

If we had a middle name, it would be technology. If we had a last name, it would probably be technology too. It's that much a part of our identity.

As one of the first companies to bring car insurance online way back in 1999, we started out by making the quoting process easier. We've used innovation to improve every small (and large) detail of the insurance experience.

Whether you're getting a car insurance quote, choosing coverage customized to your needs with our Coverage Counselor®, or managing your policy online, you're seeing just how modern insurance can be.
