Things to Remember...

  • US Fidelity & Guaranty Company was one of America’s oldest property and casualty companies
  • It was based in Baltimore and founded by John Randolph Bland
  • USF&G/Travelers makes getting a quote a fairly simple process offering three options

US Fidelity & Guaranty Company, also known as USF&G, was one of America’s oldest property and casualty companies, dating back to 1896.

It was based in Baltimore and founded by John Randolph Bland. USF&G prospered right through the 1960s and 70s and was largely responsible for the economic revitalization of large portions of Baltimore.

At the time of the St. Paul Companies acquisition, USF&G continued to sell personal insurance lines under its own name. However, the St. Paul Companies were eventually acquired by Travelers and USF&G was officially shut down.

Today the business no longer exists, even though the name is used for marketing purposes in some geographic locations. For all intents and purposes, however, consumers who have a USF&G policy actually have one written and serviced by Travelers.

How do you get a quote from USF&G auto insurance?

USF&G/Travelers’ website provides an online quote tool that involves entering specific information about where you live, the car you drive, and so on.

The form takes just a short time to complete and then returns a fairly accurate quote in just a matter of minutes.

The second option is to call the toll-free number provided on the website and speak to a corporate representative directly.

The third option is to contact a local agency in your area that represents The Travelers. That local agent will be able to assess your needs, compare several different policies, and offer you quotes from all of them.

You are then free to choose the policy that you like best. The process of using local, independent agents is very popular in the car insurance business. It’s something that Travelers has been doing for quite a long time, and with great success.

US Fidelity & Guaranty Agents

While some national insurance carriers provide only a limited number of local agents, Travelers provides almost too many to choose from.

Their agent locator tool asks for your zip code and then returns results within a specified distance from your home. The default distance is five miles, but you can adjust it if you live in a rural area where there are fewer agents.

We entered an upstate New York ZIP code just to see what the results were and we were given almost two dozen choices.

It stands to reason that major metropolitan areas like New York City and Los Angeles will have more Travelers independent agents then a small town or rural area.

Fortunately, The Travelers and its subsidiaries are so prolific in the United States that it’s nearly impossible to live someplace without an agent within reasonable driving distance.

If you use the online agent locator with no success, it may not necessarily be accurate. You’re encouraged to call the corporate office for updated information.

US Fidelity & Guaranty Locations

The address we have provided above is listed as the official business address of the entity formerly known as US Fidelity & Guaranty Company.

However, the Travelers corporate website lists four other addresses around the United States.

One of them is a Minnesota address, and the others are in Connecticut.

It would appear that the corporate office is located in Hartford at the address listed below:

Travelers
One Tower Square, 8MS
Hartford, CT 06183
Phone: 1-888-695-4625

US Fidelity & Guaranty Claims

USF&G/Travelers offers claims service either through a toll-free number provided on their website or through their online claims portal.

If you should decide to call the toll-free number a claims specialist will review the incident, take the necessary information, and get the claims process started for you.

You can use that same toll-free number to track the progress of your claim and to ask specific questions.

If you decide to use phone service, the company recommends that you call them directly, rather than your agent.

In order to file a claim online, customers must establish an online account. 

It’s not clear whether claims service is more efficient with the online method but some people prefer to do business in this way. As a last resort, customers may contact their local agent to begin the claims process.
