How to save on auto insurance in Arizona

More than 124 million Americans, including many Arizona drivers, could be overpaying for car insurance because they do not pay per mile.

Pay-per-mile auto insurance, also known as “pay as you go” or “pay as you drive” auto insurance, is based on how far you drive. It can be fairer because it focuses on your actual driving, which gives you control over how much you want to pay for car insurance.

Savings can quickly add up. Drivers might be missing out on as much as $947 a year in savings, according to a recent survey of new customers who saved with Metromile.

How are auto insurance rates determined in Arizona?

Insurance companies in Arizona consider many factors when setting rates. Some of the most common include coverage limits and deductibles, claims history, driving history, vehicle type, vehicle theft rates, and many others.

It is important to shop around for auto insurance regularly because rates can change over time.

Pay-per-mile auto insurance can be fairer because it helps drivers control their costs. Metromile customers’ bills update in almost real-time because they pay per mile.

Each month, Metromile charges a base rate and a per-mile rate, usually just a few cents for each mile driven. The low monthly base rate keeps your car covered, even when you might not be driving, almost like how a cell phone provider might charge you a small fee to keep your telephone number and line operating.

Making sure you have the right amount of car insurance is important for every driver. This is why Metromile provides flexible coverage options, which can be customized for extra peace of mind.
