Washington, D.C., June 9, 2010 – GEICO, currently leading the mobile insurance market with the top-rated GEICO GloveBox application, is advancing farther into the universe of customer-friendly insurance services with the first iPhone-ready auto insurance quote application.
Beginning today, iPhone users visiting www.geico.com will be directed to a streamlined rate quote application, built from the ground-up with a unique touch-friendly interface.
"We want the best experience for our customers, wherever they are, whenever they need us," said Marie Motowylak, sales manager of GEICO.com. "Our mobile rate quote application was built with that in mind. The price is there in minutes and with the touch of a finger so can a GEICO policy."
