Carlos S. lives in the Chicago area and regularly lets us know how much he loves being a Metromile customer. He wanted to share his testimonial about why pay-per-mile changed the way he thought about car insurance (for the better).
I just landed a new job near my home, and it turned out I was driving a lot less. I was fed up with always paying over $120 a month for my auto insurance. I decided to reach out to my old car insurance company and see if there were any discounts they could offer for my new shorter commute. After doing some competitive shopping, the best I could do was only pay $100 for the shorter commute. That is when I came across an ad for Metromile and decided to get a free quote.
After checking out the savings calculator on the quote, I discovered I will save $700 a year by having pay-per-mile car insurance. In fact, I will end up spending 50% less of what I usually pay for car insurance! Also – double bonus – not only was I spending less, but I was able to get more coverage on my car. Pay–per-mile means I can increase my coverage and lower my deductibles and still save.
The device is easy to use, too. Other insurance companies I had in the past had me plug a device into my car as well, but I became frustrated hearing the beeping noise when I was forced to slam on the brakes. It’s great to be more connected to my car without the hassle of having to worry about my driving behavior. I love that Metromile is able to customize my insurance in a way that saves me money based on how much I drive, rather than how I drive.
Even the customer service has been great. I found that I always receive quick assistance and am able to get my questions answered with knowledgeable and friendly agents.
The free app is useful as well, and I like that I can see fuel cost level and previous trips. I recently updated my lien holder information online, through a new feature Metromile recently launched, and it took only a few minutes to complete. Metromile just keeps getting better. Keep it up!
