Esurance doesn't use agents, so they save money on employees and office space. I was a bit leary at first, but have made a couple of claims and had no issues. Everything is done online or over the phone and they have the cheapest rates I've found. They are backed by Allstate. Allstate was our previous insurance company, but found that they kept raising rates, even though we didn't make any claims.
Customer service is great. They explain things so it’s easy to understand. The insurance is reasonable and you can talk to a real person 24/7. They tailor your insurance to just what you need or want. They are not pushy.
The price is great: I used to be with Nationwide with an traditional agent. I switched to Esurance and saved 30%. After I switched I totaled my car and had small water damage in my basement due to water heater failure. For both claims I dealt with the insurance adjusters and both were reasonable, punctual and efficient. They are using efficiencies and technology such as video claims, etc. They save money by not having a brick and mortar traditional agent, adjusters that have to come to your house, etc and pass on the savings. I recommend it.
I am hoping the Esurance product is not as bad as their DriveSense APP and their customer service. My complaints have fallen on deaf ears. All I get is incompetent phone support people who think they are dealing with a total idiot. All they try to do is sweep the problems under the rug. That is right. There are multiple issues with the App. Were it not for a discount at renewal I would not give a damn about the app!
This company is unprofessional and rude. Please never ever use this company. I had a no fault claim. They drag me through the mud. Was talked to like a dog. Run from this company. I am ** with insurance state commission. In all my experience have never been treated so badly. Zero stars.

The company was respectful and nice until I wanted to cancel my plan. They told me I would be refunded a part of my premium but didn’t tell me if I cancelled my plan first that I would no longer receive it. They called me stupid in other words when I spoke to the manager. They will withhold information to not have to pay you back! Find another company.
Esurance gave me an okay price when I started with them in July of 2019, I had 3 vehicles. I was changing insurance companies because my one before esurance was too high. At the end of the summer I got rid of one of my vehicles. I told esurance about it and I wanted to know what my new payments were going to be. They told me it was going to take some days before they could figure it out. That was some BS, esurance gave me a quote for 3 vehicles before I joined them. Now I received a letter in the mail talking about my insurance is going to go up because one of my vehicles has no warranty for repairs? None of my vehicles had warranty coverage on them when I joined. Esurance needs to pay everyone who they caused punitive damages for all of their fraudulent activity. Esurance is a corrupt insurance company.
I am a 39 yr old married male with a perfect driving record. Esurance just quoted me over $8,000 a year for insurance on a 4 door sedan (with a high deductible). Yes, that is correct. This was roughly double the price of the 5 other major insurance providers I obtained quotes for.
I have a homeowners policy through Esurance. I bought my house in Sept of 2018. In Jan of 2019, my son was attacked by another dog while taking out the trash, and my dog pushed the gate open and bit the other dog. Those people filed a claim against my dog for injuries to their dog. Esurance paid the claim, but then in July of 2019, I get a letter from them stating that they are dropping me, because I had to file that liability claim, regardless of the amount, and regardless of the situation. I was also informed, that if a homeowner has to file a fire liability claim, then they are dropped as well. The service rep told me that I would have been better off if I would have paid the claim myself, and that I should have filed a claim against the other people first. My son wasn’t hurt, so why would I file? I’m not a sue happy person, and was trying to do the right thing. I argued that why should I have insurance, if I get punished for using it?
Now, I have less than a month to find a different policy...which is proving to be extremely difficult because, you guessed it...I now have a claim on my record. I even had one company ask me if I still had my dog? Of course I still have a my 8 yr old Golden Retriever. She was just doing her job. I would have understood if maybe Esurance would have slightly raised my rate, but dropping me altogether? Ridiculous. Now, because of a that stupid claim, my rate quotes from other companies are so damned high that I don’t know what I’m going to do. Thanks Esurance.
I have had them for several years and 3 renewals. Zero accidents or tickets. Zero claims. My payments have been fairly constant over the 3 renewals and no on this one. Had the quote for renewal saying the same rate of $160 per month- then I suddenly got billed at $250 per month with zero explanations. Customer service just gave me BS. NO good reason. In short a 50% increase out of nowhere and zero cause. And this is for a customer who has been a client for about 3 years with zero cause. In fact with zero tickets and zero claims my rate should have gone down. Not a huge 50% increase- about $600 over a six month policy. Quotes from the competition show the rate I was getting. I will drop this ** immediately.
