Do you live in a city and/or find that you do not drive that many miles each day? If you own a car, then you also own an insurance policy (well let's hope so!). So is it necessarily fair for those who drive less than 20 miles a day to pay for high insurance? Wouldn't it be nice if you could have a pay-per-mile car insurance and save hundreds of dollars each year? Well, that car insurance does exist-- let me introduce you to Metromile.
Metromile is revolutionizing car insurance through technology with its pay-per-mile insurance model. By offering affordable car insurance, transparent pricing based on the miles you actually drive, data to optimize how you use your car, and instant access to detailed vehicle diagnostics via the driving app, Metromile is transforming car insurance — and car ownership — to be more intelligent, seamless, and accessible than ever before. Metromile is expanding across the US, and currently empowering drivers in California, Illinois, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington.
Using data gathered from Metromile Pulse, an OBD-II device that plugs into the car’s computer system, drivers only pay a few cents per mile with a low base rate each month for full coverage.

Metromile is now offered to residents in Pennsylvania!
Pennsylvania marks the second state on the East Coast to offer Metromile’s per-mile insurance. This pay-per-mile model is the ideal solution for the more than 60 percent of Pennsylvania drivers who drive less than 20 miles per-day as they are considered low-mileage drivers (driving less than 10,000 miles/year). In addition, Metromile also offers drivers the latest innovations in smart driving via its Metromile app and connected car devices.
“Pennsylvania is a great fit for a per-mile auto insurance option,” said Dan Preston, CEO of Metromile. “Drivers in the big cities of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh have access to a wide variety of public transportation in addition to bike-friendly commute options. Ultimately, those Pennsylvanians who own cars they rarely drive are overpaying for auto insurance."
