Nevada Consumers Save Time & Money on Auto Insurance

SAN FRANCISCO, CA– August 12, 2004– Esurance, a direct-to-consumer personal auto insurance company, announced the recent launch of its auto insurance program in Nevada. Gary Tolman, Esurance President & CEO, stated, “It’s only fitting that Esurance, one of the fastest growing auto insurance companies in the U.S., now does business in Nevada, home to some of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the U.S.”

Esurance’s entry into the state benefits Nevada consumers. Tolman continued, “Though it’s great for our business to get into Nevada’s rapidly growing $1.3 billion auto insurance market, it’s particularly great for consumers. Anytime additional companies enter a state’s auto insurance market, the enhanced competition helps keep rates reasonable.” In addition to competitive rates, Esurance offers Nevada drivers additional savings in the form of auto insurance discounts. Two of Esurance’s most notable discounts provide extra savings to drivers who own their own home or pay their auto insurance premium in full.

Tolman also advised Nevada consumers to shop around. “Whenever consumers see that there’s any activity in the auto insurance marketplace, they should get new auto insurance quotes to see if they can save money on auto insurance.” To make auto insurance shopping easier for consumers, Esurance offers the fastest quotes online, along with instant quote comparisons.

Consumers interested in getting auto insurance quotes or in Esurance’s Nevada auto program should visit the company’s award-winning Web site,, or call the company’s 24/7 service center. Nevada polices are underwritten by Esurance Insurance Company, rated A (Excellent) by A. M. Best.
