Auto Insurance Savings for Missouri Consumers
San Francisco, CA — May 13, 2004
Esurance, a direct-to-consumer personal auto insurance company, announced that it has recently decreased rates and added
discounts to its Missouri auto insurance program. All Missouri drivers can benefit from the rate decrease, while customers
who own their own home or pay their auto insurance premium in full will benefit from additional savings with the new discounts.
Gary Tolman, Esurance president and CEO, stated, "Esurance is dedicated to helping customers save time and money on auto
insurance. With recent changes to our auto program, some customers could save up to 25 percent on their auto insurance premium."
Tolman continued, "Whenever any insurance company changes rates in a given state, it's a great time for drivers to shop around
for the best coverage at the lowest price. With fast quotes and instant rate comparisons available on our website at
www.esurance.com, we make it very easy for people to shop for auto insurance."
In addition to rate comparisons, Esurance provides additional resources to help consumers get informed about the all-too-often
complicated topic of auto insurance. Esurance's interactive planning tool, the Coverage Counselor®, is consistently
lauded in usability awards. Shoppers who would like a personalized report of auto insurance recommendations should try the
Coverage Counselor. Tolman explained, "Through our website, we try to provide all the resources consumers need to comparison
shop and get informed at their own pace."
