Idaho Drivers Now Have a Smarter Choice for Car Insurance

San Francisco, CA — May 23, 2013

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal car insurance company, is now offering car insurance in Idaho.

The company is backed by Allstate, the largest publicly held personal lines insurer in the U.S. Drivers who choose Esurance have a wealth of useful interactive online tools and technology that make driving safer and the car insurance process easier, including:

  • Teen driver safety device — free technology for Esurance's teen drivers to help prevent distracted driving. The solution can block mobile phone calls, texts, email, internet, and other smartphone applications while the car is in motion, keeping teens focused on the road and helping to save lives.
  • Coverage Counselor® — an online tool that helps Idaho drivers select the right coverages for their insurance needs. Through state-specific questions and suggestions, consumers receive highly relevant information to help them make informed decisions about the appropriate levels of insurance coverage that might be right for them.
  • What If™ Calculator — Esurance customers in Idaho who are concerned about how tickets, accidents, changing vehicles, or moving can raise or lower their car insurance premiums can get a personalized** estimate of their before and after premium using this helpful tool.

*The information provided in Coverage Counselor is not used for rating, underwriting, or any purpose unrelated to the tool. Coverage Counselor is meant to highlight certain factors consumers may wish to consider in choosing coverage. The information presented is of a general nature based on the information provided and is not meant to recommend specific coverage levels for consumers to purchase. Coverage Counselor may not present all coverages, limits, or deductibles that could be available to you. Actual coverages vary by state and are subject to individual eligibility. Other terms, conditions, and exclusions apply. The information provided is stored only in aggregate and is disassociated from any quotes or policies. Consumers' answers are not stored in relation to a quote or policy created.

**The tool will be used for informational purposes only. Actual changes will not be made to the policy. The amount of time it takes for tickets to impact a consumer's rate varies by ticket type and state. What If Calculator estimates are calculated by using common assumptions about factors, such as coverage levels, driving record, mileage, length of ownership period, and bodily injury limits. The 6-month quote that the What If Calculator will display will be based on the policyholder's current payment plan. Other factors, such as recent policy changes, upcoming rate changes, and discounts, could also impact a price.
