SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for the 21st annual Biketoberfest® in Daytona Beach, Esurance, the direct-to-consumer insurer, is launching motorcycle insurance in Florida.
There are 584,000 registered motorcycles in the state of Florida,* with thousands of those bikes likely visiting this weekend's Biketoberfest festivities in Volusia and Flagler counties. Sunshine State riders can rely on Esurance for 24/7 customer service, an award-winning online experience,** and take advantage of the many benefits of Esurance's new coverage, such as:
- A 12-month policy term. Once Florida riders sign up with Esurance, they can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a full year of protection.
- New motorcycle protection that pays the MSRP on a replacement bike if Florida riders ever total their motorcycle.
- $3,000 in coverage for accessories (such as riding apparel, saddlebags, etc.) that's automatically added to any policy that includes comprehensive and collision coverage.
- Saving big with discounts by owning a bike with anti-lock brakes, taking a motorcycle safety course, or having multiple policies with Esurance.
