Today, more than 150 years after its founding, Travelers is one of the nation's largest property casualty companies. Travelers has more than 30,000 employees, 13,000 independent agents and multiple market segments across the personal, business, financial and international insurance groups.

On top of a wide variety of discounts for safe driving and multiple policies, Travelers auto insurance customers can find additional peace of mind with options that include accident and minor violation forgiveness, a deductible waiver for total-loss claims and new-car replacement.

Travelers Group claimed 1.66 percent of the private passenger auto insurance market as of June 2015, the most recent data available from data analyst A.M. Best. That makes it the 10th-largest auto insurance carrier among the more than 1,400 tracked by Best.
