Travel safely this winter with Educators Insurance
W hile some of us might not like the thought of winter approaching, the cooler and shorter days of autumn remind us that we
need to take measures to prepare for winter travel.
Here is how Educators Insurance can help.
If you plan on visiting friends or family
members during the upcoming holidays, or if you
want to take your children on a road trip over school
break, it’s important to ensure that you will be
protected while you’re on the road — even before
your family piles into the car.
Whether your car breaks down or you get a
flat tire, you can count on EIA partner Hanover
Insurance and its Roadside Assistance coverage to
be there for you 24/7.
The benefits of having roadside assistance
The Hanover when you use a Hanover Roadside
Coverage doesn’t stop there! Roadside
Assistance also offers such services as delivery
of fluids — including fuel, oil or water — as well
as service to the battery, changing of flat tires and
recovery of your keys when they are locked inside
You might want to consider other optional
coverages offered by EIA, such as DriveSmart
Advantage, which provides help when your
travel plans are interrupted by a loss. When you
have a covered loss more than 100 miles away
from home, DriveSmart Advantage will provide
reimbursement of up to $1,000 for reasonable and
necessary expenses — such as food and lodging,
travel expenses to get you home or to your intended
destination, and the cost of returning your covered
auto to your home or place of garaging — except in
the case of a total loss.
DriveSmart Advantage also includes rental
car coverage, which protects you in the event of a
covered loss to a rented automobile. This coverage
helps to keep you from having to pay out of pocket
for loss of use of the rental, diminished value, and
certain fees that the rental company may charge in
processing the claim. It even covers up to $500 in
veterinary expenses and $500 in burial expenses if
your cat or dog is hurt or killed in an accident while
traveling in your car with you and your family.

Be prepared for frigid weather with Heat USA
A fter months of record high temperatures, it is hard to think about the upcoming winter and heating season. But sometimes extremely warm summers are followed by extremely cold winters.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts that the Northeast will be colder than normal this winter,
with some “downright frigid” periods. Whatever the case, you need to be prepared. Get your home
heating system tuned and serviced — and be sure you are set with a reliable heating oil company.
Heat USA is the largest heating oil buying group in the United States, saving MTA members
hundreds of dollars a year through an exclusive purchasing system in which dealers agree to a
fixed profit margin above wholesale. Last heating season, Heat USA customers saved an average
of 41 cents per gallon off the average full-service heating oil cost in Massachusetts.
Heating oil prices do not always rise during the winter. Often, they go down, driven by a
surplus of heating oil or artificially high rates at the start of the season. As rates drop, Heat USA
passes those savings on to members.
