Have you ever been on a long road trip, or just wandering through an unfamiliar town, and had a sudden and overwhelming craving for red velvet cupcakes piled high with sweet, sweet cream cheese frosting?

Or desperately needed a little caffeine to keep weary eyes open for the home stretch?

Or maybe behind the wheel of a Tesla Roadster watching the battery’s power gauge drift dangerously toward the red?

Well, good news for all you hungry, weary, running-on-empty warriors of the road. With Esurance Mobile (our smartphone app) installed on your Android™ or iPhone, you can find what you’re looking for in seconds — from cupcakes to coffee to charging stations.

Esurance Mobile: now with more awesome

If you’re already an Esurance Mobile user, you know we built our smartphone app to make managing your car insurance policy and payments that much easier. And with features that allow you to access your proof of insurance, file a claim, call a tow truck, view pictures of your car’s repairs, and check your payment schedule, it just gets easier all the time.

But while car insurance made easy is great, cupcake-finding made easy (by a car insurance app) is … well, sort of fantastic.

That’s why we decided to build a new feature that lets you quickly and easily find just about anything you might need, from a tasty (cream-cheese-laden) midnight snack haven to the nearest biodiesel station.

All without leaving the app.

If you already have Esurance Mobile, make sure it’s up-to-date, then open the app and hit the “nearby shops & services” button on the home screen.

Here’s everything Esurance Mobile can now help you track down.
