What the industry is saying about Wawanesa Auto Insurance…

Wawanesa Insurance’s financial strength and solvency was given high marks by third-party financial analyst A.M. Best Co.

Choose Wawanesa Auto Insurance because…

Wawanesa Insurance is picky when it comes to insuring drivers, choosing to insure those considered “Good Drivers.” Generally, a “good driver” is one who hasn’t had more than one at-fault accident that resulted in only property damage or had more than a 1 point violation on their driving record in the last three years. Wawenesa’s savings by insuring low-risk drivers are passed on to its customers through their low cost car insurance rates.

In addition to low cost auto insurance, Wawanesa Insurance also provides homeowners and condominium insurance which come with Identity Theft Resolution Services, offering assistance in fraud education and identity management.

As one of California’s top auto insurance companies, Wawanesa Auto Insurance does not skimp on auto coverage and offers a wide range of optional car insurance coverage. Below are a few examples:

  • Automobile Medical Payments – Pays for any passenger or driver injured in a covered car and covers dental, medical and even funeral expenses in the event of an accident. Also provides coverage as pedestrians if struck by a car;
  • Towing and Labor Costs – Covers towing and labor costs in case of a mechanical breakdown;
  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage (Collision Waiver) – Pays a driver’s collision deductible for damages to their car caused by a wreck with an uninsured car;
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Protection – Provides coverage against bodily injury when caused by a driver without car insurance or low limits.

Wawanesa Insurance’s online billing payment feature allows drivers to conveniently pay their bills online, as well as view their billing and payment information.
