While it may be one of the smallest states in the nation, Connecticut has plenty to boast about. From its rich colonial history to its proud maritime industry, the great state of Connecticut seems to have a little bit of everything. Despite being only 5,567 square miles, Connecticut is home to both rolling mountains and horse farms, coastal marshes and beaches. There are acres of lush, coastal forest full of towering oaks, and rocky beaches dotted with grasses and wildflowers. No wonder more than 3.5 million people call the Nutmeg State home, making it the fourth densest state in America.
With a population like that, we’re thrilled to announce that Hippo is now available statewide, all the way from Stamford to Putnum. Hippo offers affordable protection for all of Connecticut’s 1.5 million homes, whether it’s your pied-à-terre in Greenwich or a houseboat on Long Island Sound.
Unsurprisingly, there have been hundreds of renowned Connecticuters since it became a state in 1788. Connecticut has produced two presidents — both named George Bush — as well as the inventor Eli Whitney, author Mark Twain, athlete Caitlyn Jenner, and scores of entertainers including Kevin Bacon, P.T. Barnum, Michael J. Fox, and Meryl Streep.
Connecticut’s weather is famously unpredictable, so homeowners have to be prepared for everything from tornadoes and hurricanes to thunderstorms and blizzards. A smart, modern home insurance policy is a must to keep those centuries-old colonials intact. In fact, Hippo even offers a free smart home monitoring kit with most policies, helping Connecticuters both protect their homes and lower their costs.
Because Hippo believes that homeowners deserve better home insurance, our platform uses real-time data to keep assessments up to date and our customers fully insured—often at a significant savings. Hippo customers save an average of 25% on their homeowners insurance, with coverage tailored to their lifestyles, priorities, and needs. Getting a quote takes just 60 seconds, with coverage available in under four minutes. And because we’re so confident that our policies can best suit your needs at a price you can afford, you can even compare quotes with other providers right from our website to see how Hippo stacks up to the competition.
We know Nutmeggers appreciate good service, and we’re certain you’ll love our agents’ friendliness and responsiveness. While we hope you’ll never need our services, if you do ever need to file a claim, your personal Hippo Concierge will guide you through the process from start to finish, making it as smooth and painless as possible. And we’ll reach out proactively if we learn about potential issues or weather events approaching your area, so you’ll have time to prepare for whatever’s coming.
We’re excited to be here in Connecticut, and our agents are standing by to find out how we can meet your needs. So, if you’re ready for a new kind of homeowners insurance, get a 60-second quote or give us a call at (877) 838-8866 to see what Hippo can do for you.
