As a mom the last thing I want to do is pay for auto insurance especially when I don’t drive very often. Seriously my kids school is walking distance and my car is collecting spider webs. So why do I have t0 pay so much in car insurance when I don’t drive that often?

Per-mile insurance means you never get charged for miles that you don’t drive.


Why am I paying so much for car insurance? Did you know that 65% of drivers pay  higher premiums to subsidize the minority who drive the most? Seriously?! If you drive less you should be paying less for insurance. Metro mile per-mile insurance costs less because it’s based on how many miles you drive. If you spend less time behind the wheel, you spend less money on insurance. I like that!

Metromile is revolutionizing the auto insurance world with its pay-per-mile model- allowing drivers to pay for the miles they drive, without judgment of driving style or behavior. Designed for those who drive less than 10,ooo miles per year, per-mile insurance can save the typical customer nearly $500 annually. Metromile is currently the only agent offering a pay-per-mile auto insurance policy in the U.S today.

Metromile leverages data to harness the power of predictive modeling to make all aspects of driving and owning a car simpler, less expensive, and more convenient. By offering a mobile app and connected devices, Metromile is reinventing how drivers can effectively manage the costs of car ownership.


In 2015, Metromile partnered with Uber to provide much-needed insurance coverage for UberX drivers. Unclear coverage for the ambiguous “period 1” ( when Uber app is on but the driver has not beed matched with a passenger) had let to controversial and costly court battles. The partnership enables both systems t verify drivers and vehicles, which then allows miles driven during Uber’s commercial coverage ( Periods 2&3) to be subtracted fro the driver’s total monthly bill.

Where is Metromile available?

* Per-mile insurance through Metromile is currently available in California, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Washington, Virginia and Oregon.

*Uber driver-partners are able to sign up for per-mile insurance only in California, Washington and Illinois.

* Drivers in other states can add themselves to a waitlist for an emailed notification of availability. More states are planned for 2015.

* The current free app experience is available in CA, WA, PA, IL, VA and OR

Insurance features include Road Trip Friendly- With per-mile insurance, you aren’t charged for the miles you drive above 150/day ( 250/day in Washington). So if you go on a long trip yo save more. You also get complete coverageEven though you’re paying less you still have the same amazing coverage that all the big insurers provide. From collision to comprehensive, they have you covered!
