Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal car insurance company, is offering new car insurance savings to same-sex couples in domestic partnerships and civil unions in 21 new states across the country.
Same-sex couples who live together in nearly all the states where Esurance does business can now save 10 percent* or more on their Esurance car insurance premiums, regardless of their state’s laws regarding same-sex partnerships. Savings may vary depending on a number of pricing factors, including driving record, accident history, and vehicle.**
Esurance has already offered similar car insurance savings for same-sex partners in Calif., Ill., Ore., and Wash. Now, customers in Ala., Ariz., Colo., Conn., Ga., Ind., Ky., Md., Minn., Miss., Nev., N. J., Ohio, Okla., Pa., S.C., Tenn., Texas, Utah, Va., and Wisc. who want to take advantage of these savings or get a car insurance quote from Esurance can go to the website.
*According to Esurance’s multi-state analysis in 2011, 10% is the average premium savings realized when couples are rated as “married” rather than “single.” The actual savings rate may vary widely.
**When a driver selects “domestic partner* as his or her marital status, they will be rated with the same factors used for drivers with “married” as their marital status. Same-sex couples in a civil union will get a “married” rate when they list on the same policy, which may be a lower rate than those previously available to such non-married individuals. This rate applies to two persons of the same or opposite sex who form a civil union.
