We are committed to provide support to our policyholders during these challenging times, and want to encourage and reward social distancing practices with this discount
Mercury Insurance announced today that an increased discount is being temporarily offered in Illinois for policyholders who electronically sign their personal auto insurance policies online rather than in-person. The eSign discount, which immediately applies to new customers for one term as of May 8, 2020, can save Illinois residents up to 10% on their auto insurance.
“Due to stay-at-home orders around the country and people doing their part to fight the pandemic, we’ve seen a decline in mileage driven and the frequency of auto collisions,” said Justin Yoshizawa, director of product management at Mercury Insurance. “We are committed to provide support to our policyholders during these challenging times, and want to encourage and reward social distancing practices with this discount.”
Mercury’s eSign discount applies to all drivers who get Private Passenger Automobile liability, comprehensive or collision coverages. Mercury operates through a network of 431 independent insurance agents in Illinois. Drivers can also go to www.mercuryinsurance.com to get a quote.
“Drivers who select to eSign with Mercury save on average $55 on their policy,” said Yoshizawa. “This discount can also be combined with others like multi-car, accident- and violation-free discounts, and our continuous insurance discount, among others. The savings can add up quickly, putting more money into the pockets of Illinois drivers during a time when they may need it most.”
Yoshizawa offers these tips when shopping for auto insurance:
