My experience with Erie has always been a positive one. After reading so many negative reviews, I have to wonder if the problem was with Erie, or perhaps your insurance man/woman. I purchased my Erie Insurance through Gary Donius Insurance over 25 years ago. I’ve been involved in accidents and multiple fender benders over the years. Everything has always been handled immediately and fairly with care and professionalism.

I have to say I was very impressed with the way Erie handled our auto accident (car was totaled and the driver was hospitalized for a day). There were 3 adjusters involved, one who dealt with the vehicle, one who dealt with the medical bills and one that reimbursed the lost wages. All were easily accessible both via phone and email. When the medical ran out under the auto coverage, it went to our health insurer, who reached out to Erie to confirm that the medical was exhausted. Erie promptly reached out to confirm it was ok to release the documentation and upon getting our confirm, they did. The offer for a vehicle was fair, they didn’t try to nickel and dime us. All claims, unfortunately, ultimately require effort, but Erie was as easy to deal with as I had hoped for.

I have been happy with Erie insurance. I have auto, house, and umbrella coverage with them. They are very helpful with claims. My last claim was for road damage to my air conditioner. They took the initiative to contact the repair shop. They approved the claim and paid quickly.

Erie is a pretty good company. My local agent's place looks kind of shabby but we have our house and cars through them. The prices are great for the coverage, even on newer cars. Rates don't go up much year to year, only downside is that I often don't get ahold of someone right away but response time has never been more than an hour.

I have been with Erie for years, about 23. I like that I can do everything on their website online. They have several options on paying your bill so you can do it according to what you want. They give a discount if you have home or rental insurance with them.

Most-affordable comprehensive policy for this retiree driving a 20-yr-old Ford. Despite increased uninsured/under-insured options, still priced within my budget. After a total loss (claim) 2 yrs. ago, rates are still ok.

I switched from GEICO to Erie because their price was way lower. I've had several claims since I'm with Erie. They have been on the spot every claim I've ever had. Taking care of me all the way. Through each claim. To the end.

I have been an Erie Auto and Home Insurance customer for 26 years. My son recently had an accident and now they are dropping me. So much for their so called accident forgiveness. Yes, my son was at fault, but I have paid them way more over the 26 years than the accident cost. I will be dropping Erie completely. No customer loyalty at all!!! What I once thought was a great insurance company, that thought is gone. Stay away from Erie.

I bought a brand new 2018 Nissan Rogue SL fully equip last year. A guy pull out from a stop sign in front of me and total my car.a year later. I tried to find another car exactly like it with all the same equipment my old one had, couldn’t find anything within a 50 miles. So I look at a 2019 from the dealer I bought my old one from. They gave me the new one at the same price as I paid for my old one. When I found out what Erie was giving me for the insurance value, I would had to add another $12,000. dollars to it.

They said they were giving me what my car is worth thru this company would determines what cars are worth. He sent me four car comparisons from my area. When I look up these cars they were nowhere to be found to see if they are exactly what my car had. I did online find a couple like my old car and they wanted about 4 thousand more for them. I don’t believe I got a good comparison quote. And they don’t want to hear anything about it. Signed, Loser.

Erie Insurance Company did a credit check without my consent at the time of my renewal premium. I spoke with a representative from Erie named Michelle ** and she stated that it was only a "soft" credit check. It does not matter whether it was a soft or hard credit check. My credit should not be checked/ran without consumer's consent. I am very upset with this and have never dealt with this before as I have been a experienced driver for years. Never once has my credit been check after each renewal. Legal matters should take place.

  • Best for: Drivers looking for a discount, drivers who also own homes and new drivers.
