OneBeacon Expands Auto Product for Maine Drivers

April 2, 2004

The family with a car each for dad, mom, the college sophomore and the high-school senior. The tenant in apartment 2B who’s never had a ticket or an accident in 20 years of driving. The distracted shopper who backed into another vehicle in the supermarket parkinglot.

With OneChoice Auto, OneBeacon Insurance is delivering comprehensive protection to fit the needs and lifestyles of a broad range of Maine drivers with a policy that can be customized with extras.

“We’ve expanded our approach to auto insurance significantly,” said Dan Bridge, vice president of personal lines New England for OneBeacon, “and we’re now able to offer insurance solutions to most drivers and for most vehicles in the state. The key is to meet customers’ needs at a price that’s competitive in the marketplace yet appropriate to the skill levels and driving histories of individual operators.”

OneChoice Auto offers standard property damage, liability and medical coverages. In addition, consumers can tailor their protection by adding coverage for roadside assistance; the gap between the amount owed on a loan or lease and the value of a vehicle; original equipment manufacturer replacement parts (for vehicles less than three years old); travel expenses following an
accident far from home; rental reimbursement while their vehicle is being repaired; accidental airbag deployment and a reward for auto theft conviction.

Terry Flagg-Bell of the Chalmers Agency in Bridgton likes what she sees. “I would say it’s a great new product that OneBeacon has come out with,” said Flagg-Bell. “I will certainly recommend it to many of my clients.”
Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, OneBeacon Insurance Group carries an A.M. Best rating of A (excellent). It is wholly owned by White Mountains Insurance Group, Ltd., of Hamilton, Bermuda.
