For other Tesla insurance questions, we also included a quick guide for easy reference. See Our Frequently Asked Questions section!
Navigating Tesla’s Phone Menu
Once a caller has dialed Tesla’s number at 1-844-348-3752, the caller will be routed through a menu.
Tesla’s main insurance line has three menu options.
- Press 1: To File a Claim or for questions about an existing claim
- Press 2: For questions about an existing policy, an existing quote, or to get a new quote
- Press 9: To enter a direct extension
Press One: Claims
After pressing one, customers will be routed through the second set of menu options related to claims.
- Press 1 for questions about an existing claim
In order to access information about an existing claim, you will need to reference your claim number.
- Press 2 for a roadside or glass-only claim
At this point, callers will be directed to file glass-only claims in the Tesla app. To continue beyond this point for a roadside claim, you will need your five-digit zip code listed on the policy.
- Press 3 to submit a new claim that is not roadside or glass
At this point, callers will be directed to file a new comprehensive or collision claim in their Tesla App. For callers unable to use the app, they will need the five-digit zip code associated with their policy.
Press Two: Questions about Policies or Quotes
Once a caller has pressed two from the main menu, the operator routes the caller to a representative.
Press Nine: Extension
After entering nine, callers will need the extension of the party they wish to reach. This may be helpful if you have an extension for a claims adjuster or agent and you need to reach them.
How to Speak to a Person
The phone menu is limited to the keypad. Asking to speak to a representative will not affect the AI operator.
Pro Tip: If you are calling about policy questions or an insurance quote, the menu will quickly route you to a person after dialing “2” from the main menu.
If you call about a claim, you will be routed through a series of menus. Each menu will direct you to file a claim through the app. If you choose to proceed over the phone, you will need the zip code listed in your policy.
Does Tesla Offer 24/7 Customer Support?
The phone menu is available 24/7. Customers can receive instructions for using the app from the recorded menu options. Tesla offers Roadside Assistance 24/7 to customers with a roadside policy.
Pro Tip: Claims are filed through the app and can be done anytime.
