My van is two years old. Barely. And it has about 13,000 miles on it. With the exception of a road trip to Portland, I’m pretty much driving to the grocery store, preschool and the mall, you know, to get blonded. At less than 7,000 miles a year though, I’m probably paying way too much for car insurance. Way too much.
Metromile is a per-mile insurance for people like me because you never get charged for miles that you don’t drive.
With per-mile insurance you pay a low monthly base rate plus a few cents per mile when you drive. At the end of the month, your bill is your base rate plus how many miles you drove at your per-mile rate. Just like with other insurance companies, several factors can influence your rate, including age, type of vehicle, and driver history.
Insurance is based on how much you’re on the road. So shouldn’t it be if you drive less, you pay less?
Love to go on road trips? Not only can the Metromile help you plan your trip, but it might be cheaper than you think! With per-mile insurance, you aren’t charged for the miles you drive above 150/day (250/day in Washington). Not a bad deal!
The key to per-mile insurance is the Metromile Pulse, a free small wireless device we send you that plugs into your car’s diagnostic port. Plugging in the Pulse is easy, doesn’t require any tools, and once in place it securely counts your miles with every trip. Per-mile insurance doesn’t consider other driving factors such as how fast you drive, how suddenly you turn, or how hard you brake, just how many miles you drive.
