This Mylo Insurance review looks at the coverage options, regions served, and reputation of the company. Mylo is an insurtech company that searches for the best policies and prices in commercial and personal lines of insurance.
Mylo was launched in 2015. It’s an insurtech arm of Lockton Companies which was founded in 1966 and is the world’s largest independent insurance broker. This relationship gives Mylo an advantage in understanding the needs of small business owners and helping pinpoint the right coverage based on decades of insurance experience. Mylo searches for the best policy for clients based on relationships with more than 100 insurance carriers.
This company has a national presence. Mylo serves all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia.

Top Industries Served
Every insurance company has a preferred list of industries that it serves. Because Mylo has so many insurance carrier relationships, it serves a wide range of industries. As you go through the questionnaire, you’ll be asked to describe your business. The AI software will then pair you with a suitable carrier for your company.
Mylo doesn’t advertise rates. However, we ran a quote for a small consulting firm. The system generated a quote for general liability for $565 per year within a few minutes. This is slightly higher than other sites we have received quotes from. Quotes for professional liability and umbrella policies required calling to get a quote.
Mylo’s focus is on the AI technology it uses to help navigate the commercial insurance world. The questionnaire asks basic questions to start. Toward the end of the AI-generated interview, some questions get into specifics about whether the company has merged, had claims, or produces specific high-risk products. This is more in-depth than most AI formats that we’ve seen though it is good to help get an accurate quote.
AM Best Ratings
Am Best is a third-party rating company that gives consumers insights into the solvency of an insurance company. Highly rated companies are thought to be highly solvent with assets that can cover a high number of claims. Because Mylo shops for insurance with partner carriers, it doesn’t have its own AM Best rating.
Because Mylo is an independent insurance broker, it doesn’t have a profile established with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). Instead, its partner companies have a profile. When you get a quote from Mylo, you might want to run a complaint index report on that specific carrier to see if the company has more or fewer complaints as expected for a company of its size.
Looking at third-party review sites helps us determine what actual customers say about Mylo. On Reviews.io, Mylo has 149 reviews with a 4.84 average star rating. People like how the platform shops for better rates. Those upset found service to be lacking, and found it difficult to change policy terms.
Mylo is not accredited with the Better Business Bureau. It has one one-star review and one complaint made in the past 12 months. The complaint says they purchased two policies for their business but never received the policies. In trying to contact the company, the business owner got no response.
Mylo is a leader in insurtech, helping individuals and business owners find the right policy among a long list of insurance partners. The AI-based platform is easy to use but is a little more in-depth than some other AI platforms. We feel this is a good indication that Mylo is looking to get the correct information at the onset, so there are no surprises later on.
