Conduct an Annual Review to Maintain the Best Coverage

Don’t let another year go by without reviewing, and updating, your coverage.

Major life events, and even some seemingly unimportant ones, might affect your coverage and require adjustments to your policy to make sure you’re still properly covered. Adding a new teen driver, getting married, adding another car to your policy and purchasing expensive items are all occasions when you should update your insurance coverage. There are also opportunities to expand coverage like adding roadside assistance, which could pay for reasonable towing and required labor costs at the site of the vehicle breakdown.

Contact us to ask for a free, no-obligation annual review. We can provide you with coverage updates to fit your needs.

No Surprises at the Rental Car Counter

Sometimes the level of auto insurance coverage that you have isn’t the one you need. Let ERIE’s Transportation Expense Coverage¹ make sure that doesn’t happen when you’re in an accident and need a rental car.

ERIE’s Transportation Expense Coverage gives you the option to choose what kind of rental you’d like. Too often, Customers find out at the rental counter they’re covered for a smaller vehicle than they need. ERIE offers five classes of vehicles to choose from, ranging from Class 1, compact sedan, to Class 5, luxury sedan or large SUV. For an additional cost or premium, you can purchase a higher class of coverage, and by extension, a higher class vehicle.
