Metromile offers real-time, personalized auto insurance policies by the mile, as well as flexible auto coverage options.
PRODUCT: Metromile Pay-Per-Mile Insurance
BEST RATING: Metromile is not rated by AM Best.
AVAILABILITY: Through an integration with the EZLynx Rating Engine, Metromile now offers independent agents access to Metromile's customizable pay-per-mile auto insurance.
FOCUS: Metromile offers real-time, personalized auto insurance policies by the mile instead of the industry-standard reliance on approximations that have historically made prices unfair. The digitally native offering is built around the modern driver's needs, featuring automated claims, complimentary smart driving features, and annual average savings of 47% over what drivers were paying their previous auto insurer.
Powered by machine learning and customer-centric design, Metromile is at the forefront of disrupting a more than $250 billion personal auto insurance industry that has gone unchanged for decades.
COVERAGE DETAILS: Metromile offers flexible coverage options, including different deductibles and limits for collision and comprehensive coverage. Metromile offers all the usual types of auto coverage you would expect, with add-on options available, including rental reimbursement, pet injury protection, roadside assistance, and no-deductible glass repair.
Additionally, with Metromile's Pulse device and app, drivers can access billing and trip summaries, track their budget, receive check engine light alerts, enable street sweeping notifications, and even track their car in the case of vehicle theft. Metromile is proud to boast a 90% recovery rate for stolen vehicles due to its Pulse device.
UNDERWRITING: When customers sign up with Metromile, they pay a low, locked-in monthly base rate plus a per-mile charge. By using real-time data from Metromile's Pulse device, rates are tailored to individual drivers.
MINIMUM PREMIUM: Drivers pay a base rate as low as $29 per month, which is adjusted by a few cents based on the number of miles driven. However, any miles driven over 250 miles per day—150 in New Jersey—are free.
TARGET: Metromile is a great fit for low-mileage drivers of all kinds—suburbanites, city dwellers, college students, seniors and remote workers.
COVERAGE AVAILABILITY: Available in AZ, CA, IL, NJ, OR, PA, VA and WA. Will be available in IN, CO, MO, IA and TX later this year.
