Lemonade Car available in Illinois

Lemonade is announcing that its new car insurance offering is now available in Illinois.

As we reported in September, telematics is a key component in Lemonade’s new offering and the company makes it clear to consumers from the get-go.

Users can get a quote online or through the app with the same chat-like Lemonade experience. The policy comes with roadside assistance, real-time crash detection and dispatch of emergency services.

Lemonade also offers a bundling discount and a few other discounts that make it a bit confusing for the average insurance professional.

“We stood up entire teams to handle tows, repairs, body shop services, as well as support for the 24/7 roadside assistance and emergency services we now offer. Providing a best-in-class car claims experience means being there for your customers 100 percent of the time, with surprisingly fast service and lots of empathy. We wanted to introduce a product that will not only reinvent how people buy car insurance, manage their policy, and file claims, but also do something good for the planet. Since we can’t stop using cars just yet, we will help compensate for the CO2 emitted from our customers’ cars by financing reforestation on an ongoing basis. Using the telematics technology in our app, we’re able to estimate how much carbon dioxide is emitted by each ride, and plant trees accordingly.” – Shai Wininger, Lemonade’s CEO and cofounder.
