In business for over 150 years, Travelers Insurance is one of the nation’s largest property casualty companies. Having grown tremendously, Travelers currently has over 30,000 employees, along with 13,000 independent agents and multiple market segments across the personal, business, international and financial insurance groups. The company operates within the United States. It also operates within the United Kingdom, Lloyd’s of London, Canada and the Republic of Ireland. Ultimately, this expansion is precisely what has caused it to rise in popularity, making it become what it is.
Travelers Insurance offers liability, collision and comprehensive plans. In addition to these versatile coverage plans, they offer a medical payment plan, PIP coverage—Personal Injury Protection—and a plan directed toward high-risk motorists, called Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist. If the various coverage plans do not fully convince you, they make sure to offer many discounts, which is primarily their aim. Other benefits include:
- Medical Payment
- Bodily injury
- Property damage
- No fault – accident forgiveness
- Gap insurance
- Towing and labor
On average, a Travelers auto insurance policy costs $92 per month.

The flexibility offered to policyholders is possibly the best aspect of Travelers. They cover 43 states and, additionally, they are available internationally. Making it equally as convenient, is the fact that you can file and track claims, either through their agents or online. The online option can be used at any time. However, they mention that for the Bond & Specialty Insurance claims, you must file over the phone.
Travelers has boasted many “firsts” in the insurance industry, including the first available policy for automobiles in 1897.
Although Travelers Insurance seems to provide all necessary facts and figures to help you make a smart decision, their prices vary immensely if you are, for instance, a higher-risk driver. Other drawbacks include:
Customers may find that information provided by Travelers is not necessarily applicable to their situation. The company claims that their information is often ‘necessarily simplified’ and that not everything is that which all customers can expect. This means that if you want to look into the company, make sure you inquire about any doubts you might have or about anything you consider particularly noteworthy.
