Esurance Continues Rolling Out Big Discounts on Car Insurance

San Francisco, CA — October 5, 2010

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal auto insurance company, continues to roll out its latest car insurance discount, which provides significant savings to responsible drivers with clean driving records.

The Claim-Free discount encourages drivers to switch to Esurance by offering them savings of up to 20 percent on car insurance if they are currently insured and have not been involved in an accident or reported a claim in the past 5 years.* Designed to reward safe, defensive drivers, it is one of the most substantial discounts that Esurance offers.

Additionally, in keeping with their best-of-both-worlds approach to car insurance — people when you want them, technology when you don't™ — Esurance's Claim-Free discount is easy to obtain both on the phone with a customer service representative and online at

"This discount enables us to introduce our 24/7 customer-friendly services and innovative features such as online repair monitoring to a new pool of potential policyholders," said Esurance Vice President of Sales Tom Capp. "Safe drivers can look to Esurance for a great discount that rewards them for their responsible driving habits."

First introduced in October 2009, the discount is available in Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and — as of this month — Pennsylvania, for a total of 10 states to date.

Continued Capp, "The Claim-Free discount has been extremely successful in driving a large volume of new business for Esurance, and we plan to extend it to additional states in the coming year."
