Elephant Insurance, a direct-to-consumer automobile insurance company, has partnered with Markel, an expert in specialty insurance, to update Elephant's policy offerings for motorcycle and ATV/UTV insurance.

Markel’s specialty insurance product enables Elephant to provide more comprehensive and convenient coverage options to both new and existing customers.

Elephant’s motorcycle insurance and ATV/UTV insurance offering will be made available to consumers online or over the phone starting November 6, 2014. Through this new partnership, Elephant customers will be able to bundle auto and motorcycle insurance policies. Having access to diverse insurance offering provides Elephant customers the opportunity to maximize their savings.

"At Elephant, we are dedicated to make insurance solutions more accessible for our policyholders," said Colleen Benzin, Head of Insurance Products at Elephant.

"Through our partnership with Markel, we are able to do just that. Markel is a recognized specialist in the industry, and our sales professionals are excited to be able to provide our customers with a simple, convenient, and affordable way to buy motorcycle insurance, with the bonus of receiving a bundle discount with an auto policy."

This new partnership allows customers to purchase motorcycle and ATV/UTV coverage directly from Elephant’s licensed agents, providing convenience and affordability for customers, and helps Elephant continue to support its promise of "More Care, Less Cost" for its customers.

Founded in 2009, Elephant is a direct-to-consumer insurance company offering auto, home, motorcycle, and life products to customers nationally.
