coverage for classic and vintage cars. The insurance product was brought back
by popular demand after policyholders expressed a desire to have the coverage
available to them again.

“GEICO’s collector car insurance is a valuable product for our customers who
are passionate about their vehicles,” said John Zinno, GEICO vice president.
“The collector car product ensures all GEICO policyholders are covered
regardless of their make and model and gives our customers another option to
keep all of their business under the GEICO umbrella.”

Other features include coverage for lost or stolen parts, towing services, any
transportation or lodging expenses if a policyholder’s vehicle becomes
disabled more than 15 miles from home, and coverage in case a pet is injured
in an accident involving the collector vehicle.
