How to File a Claim with Endurance

Is Endurance Legit?
Endurance has been in business since 2006 and has a 4.4-star rating on Trustpilot after more than 3,200 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 Endurance Advantage coverage. This pays some or all of the cost of oil changes, tire repair and replacement, brake pad replacement, and engine diagnostics. Plus, it comes with $500 of extra coverage if you’re involved in a collision.
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.

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.
