Massachusetts Now Has a Smarter Choice For Car Insurance

San Francisco, CA — August 14, 2013

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

Esurance empowers Bay State drivers to make smart choices about their car insurance by providing affordable rates, a convenient mobile app, comparison quotes from other leading insurance companies, and 24/7 customer service. 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 the car insurance process easier and more transparent, including:

  • A website that is number one for its overall ability to support car insurance customers. Esurance came out on top in a 2012 survey1 by the Customer Respect Group, besting insurance companies such as GEICO, Progressive, and Nationwide.
  • Teen driver safety device — free technology for Esurance's teen drivers to help prevent distracted driving. The device can provide email alerts to parents when their teen uses a mobile phone to make calls, send texts, or access email, internet, and other smartphone applications while the car is in motion.
  • Coverage Counselor®— helps Massachusetts drivers select the right coverages for their insurance needs. The Coverage Counselor enables drivers to see how their personal circumstances impact their insurance premiums2. Questions and suggestions are state-specific, so consumers get highly relevant information that can help them make better, more informed decisions about what levels of insurance coverage may be right for them.
  • DriveSense™ discount program— qualified drivers get an immediate five percent discount on their first six-month policy term when they install a small telematic device in the car's onboard diagnostic port (OBD), and could realize a discount of up to 30 percent3 on their future car insurance premiums.
