MetLife and Travelers are two of the biggest names in insurance, with an advertising reach to match. Chances are you've seen more than one commercial from either in the past month. MetLife was founded in 1959, while Travelers was founded in 1864. Both are widely-trusted companies, but which has the discounts, services, and customer ratings that matter most to you?

MetLife offers optional Towing & Labor Coverage to reimburse drivers for towing and other roadside-assistance expenses.
Traveler's Basic Roadside Assistance provides towing service up to 15 miles, as well as emergency car services such as jump start, fuel delivery, flat tire change and lockout assistance. Traveler's Premier Roadside Assistance provides the same emergency car services, towing service up to 100 miles, and Trip Interruption coverage, which offers reimbursement of $200 a day (to a maximum of $600) for meals and lodging if your breakdown occurs 100 or more miles from home. Additionally, Premier Roadside Assistance provides Personal Property coverage with a $500 limit for any items damaged or stolen during the breakdown.
MetLife offers additional savings through a Deductible Savings Benefit (available in select states), which enables you to earn $50 every year in which a driver doesn't make a claim, up to a maximum of $250 that can be put toward the deductible in the event of a covered loss.
