It’s also a known fact that GEICO has established relationships with select players to which it passes on different insurance leads. So while, homeowners, renters, and condo insurance is handled via the GEICO Insurance Agency, Collector Auto is handled via Assurant and American Modern Insurance Group, Flood via Assurant Special Property, Life insurance via Life Quotes, Pet insurance via Embrace, Travel via Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection, and GL, PL, and Business Owner’s via Hiscox; to name more than a few.
