New Online Tool from Esurance Removes Pain Points from Car Insurance Shopping

October 17, 2012

Shopping for car insurance is perhaps one of the most painful but necessary exercises that car owners have to go through and Esurance, which provides auto insurance direct to consumers online or over the phone, realizes this.

Always looking for ways to make shopping a little bit easier and a lot less stressful, Esurance is now offering an online tool, Express Lane, that promises to live up to its name.

With Express Lane, information on your cars and previous insurance paid can be easily obtained. All car owners need to do to get a quote started is to furnish a few personal details. This eliminates the need to search for the current insurance documents.

Esurance uses the latest technology to streamline car insurance, offering easy-to-use mobile apps, quick comparison quotes, and online repair monitoring. It claims to be the smart choice for today's Web-savvy consumer.

When consumers shop for car insurance on the Esurance website, they need to enter their ZIP code and then decide whether to use Express Lane or enter the information manually. Done manually, this could take up a lot of time as consumers would have to hunt for information that is sometimes not readily available.

The advantage with the online Express Lane tool is that consumers can save time and reduce the hassle by automatically pre- filling personal and vehicle data. Esurance, however, stated that it does not guarantee that all data can be pre- filled for every consumer.

As a member of the Allstate family with an A+ rating from A.M. Best, Esurance is considered a reliable choice for car insurance, offering anytime, anywhere service just a click, call, or tap away.

Esurance is expanding its usage-based insurance (UBI) program to Arkansas and is offering both UBI and auto insurance. Esurance has the backing and support of Allstate Corporation , the largest public personal lines insurer in the U.S.
