Esurance and AIG are both huge, successful companies in the insurance industry. Esurance was founded in 1999, and AIG was founded earlier in the century in 1919. Both companies have a wide selection of discounts and are comparably strong in terms of financial strength ratings.
While Esurance offers a great online platform with helpful reps, AIG is too large a company for its agents to build rapport with clients. AIG has received low ratings for customer service as has Esurance for its seemingly unreliable roadside assistance program. However, Esurance is a subsidiary of Allstate, so its ratings and reviews are much stronger.
So which one offers the kinds of discounts, services, and even customer ratings that best fit your car insurance wants and needs? Keep reading to find out.
