RV coverage from GEICO available April 22 in New York
WOODBURY, N.Y., April 22, 2010 – If the legendary Griswolds™ could choose anywhere for their family vacation, they might abandon their station wagon and drive a recreational vehicle straight to New York, says Tom McNicholas, general manager of recreational vehicle insurance for GEICO.
New York has some of the most scenic and historic roadways in the country. It also has 200,000 registered recreational vehicles so ‘Clark' and his family would have plenty of company at any of the state's 300 plus RV campgrounds.
McNicholas added that if the Griswolds were covered by GEICO, they'd have GEICO's specialized RV team to help them with service and any of the other Griswold-like situations that might pop up.
GEICO is introducing its specialty RV insurance coverage for New York RV owners April 22, just in time for the spring and summer travel season.
GEICO's New Specialty RV product includes coverage for the contents of the RV, vacation liability protection, as well as an emergency expense allowance in the event of an accident while traveling.
