    Hi all. I work in the marketing department at Markel American, and was thrilled to see your interest in our new product. I just wanted to stop by and give you some answers about the product and availability.

    sarahelizabeth – thanks for the kind words! We’d love it if you’d trust us to protect you on your next ride.

    Lynn: You’re right, not available in NY…yet! We are working hard to get approved nationwide, just a bit of a process. But, rest assured, we’ll be coming to your area very soon.

    Paul: Along the same lines, we ARE now approved in California, and will be available for you to quote soon.

    Thanks all!
