Partnership allows consumers access to Elephant Insurance on Savvy platform

Richmond, Va. (September 7, 2022) — Elephant Insurance, a Virginia-based, digital-first auto insurance company, today announced a new partnership with Trellis, an insurtech enabling financial institutions, fintechs, and other partners to offer embedded insurance through its Savvy platform.

Elephant joins other leading insurance carriers leveraging Savvy to accelerate digital distribution. Savvy’s model creates value for the consumer by allowing them to integrate auto insurance with their other financial services. Savvy is an end-to-end API solution enabling consumers to instantly compare and purchase car insurance within a service provider’s app or website. Using just their insurance login, consumers can compare their existing policy to prospective alternatives in a transparent, side-by-side manner. Consumers also have the ability to purchase a better plan and cancel their old one – all on the same streamlined platform.

The partnership provides Savvy access to Elephant’s digital tools, including accurate first-time quotes. Elephant also provides shoppers a variety of auto insurance discounts, including its Multi-car Discount, Work from Home DiscountTM, and Early Bird Discount, as well as unique value-added products and services such as Diminishing Deductible, Real-time Roadside Assistance, and Pet Injury Coverage.

“Trellis and Elephant both aim to put our customers at the center of everything we do,” said Alberto Schiavon, CEO of Elephant. “Our team is excited to partner with Trellis to offer more consumers a safe, secure platform to shop, compare, and buy auto insurance. We are pleased to be able to offer consumers the opportunity to join the Elephant Herd with our competitive pricing, online tools, and superior customer service.”

“Shopping for auto insurance can be time-consuming, confusing, and disconnected from the rest of consumers’ financial lives. This usually results in customers feeling stuck in policies that aren’t an optimal fit,” said Daniel Demetri, CEO of Trellis. “We’re thrilled to partner with Elephant to help consumers evaluate their insurance options in the digital experiences they’re already using to find the best personal insurance policies for themselves and their families.”
