Most Endurance plans come with a 60-day or 1,000-mile waiting period. The waiting period is reduced to 30 days for the Secure Plus plan. They exclude damage caused by routine wear and tear or due to lack of routine maintenance of your vehicle.

Endurance Plan Pricing

You can either call Endurance to get a quote for your vehicle or fill a free quote request online and they will reach out to you by phone, email, or text. Prices will vary depending on the age and condition of your vehicle, your plan selection, and your deductible. Plans typically cost around $100–$150 per month for a $100 deductible. You can pay upfront for a discount or stretch your warranty plan payments over 36 months.

How to File a Claim with Endurance

You can bring your car to any dealership or ASE-certified mechanic for repairs, and Endurance will pay your repair bill directly. So, the only money you need to pay out of pocket is your deductible. Simply give your auto warranty information to your mechanic and they will contact Endurance for payment.

Is Endurance Legit?

Endurance has been in business since 2006 and has a 4.3-star rating on Trustpilot after more than 3,600 reviews. The company has a C-rating with the Better Business Bureau, but this is largely due to a complaint about Endurance’s advertising practices, not the quality of its policies.

What’s Unique About Endurance?

Endurance is one of the only auto warranty companies that includes some coverage for routine maintenance with its plans. When you sign up for an Endurance plan, you automatically get 1 year free of Elite Benefits. This includes special perks like total loss protection of up to $1,000, collision discount of up to $1,000 ($500 per collision), key fob replacement, tire repair/replacement, and more.

Endurance also stands out for its wide selection of plans, which can help the company meet any budget. You can customize your deductible and decide whether to pay upfront or enroll in a payment plan that can be up to 36 months.

Help and Support

Endurance offers customer support by phone and email from 8AM to 5PM (CT) Monday-Friday and 8AM-3PM Saturday. The company doesn’t offer much information about its policies or claims process on its website. You’ll need to call to get a quote for your vehicle.

What about the Endurance App?

Endurance offers a free mobile app for iOS and Android. It’s mainly designed to help you take advantage of Endurance Advantage benefits, but you can use the app to call for 24/7 roadside assistance or find a mechanic near you once your Advantage trial ends.

They came through with money to pay for needed repairs without any hassles. One example was when the air conditioning went out, they covered the cost of a new compressor which would have cost nearly $1000.

This is my first time with this company so I simply have not yet had to use it. I do have an extended policy that I bought from the sales people when I got the car. So far I have not had a problem with them.

I want them to be able to handle calls the first time; talking to more than one person is annoying. They should also explain exclusions better.
