RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Compare.com, the first true car insurance comparison website in the United States, has welcomed Metromile, a pioneer in pay-per-mile car insurance, to their website offerings. Metromile is now providing quotes to compare.com users in California, with the intention to expand their reach to more states later this year.
Compare.com launched in March 2013 with the goal to make shopping for car insurance easier for customers. Instead of having to compare car insurance prices by calling multiple insurance carriers and remembering which coverages were quoted, compare.com teams up with 70 insurance brands to make comparing easy. By filling out one simple form, compare.com can help customers easily compare insurance prices side-by-side, with the knowledge that the quotes they receive are for the exact same coverages. If a customer sees a quote they’d like to buy on compare.com, they can click the “Buy Now,” button and work directly with the carrier of their choice to complete the sale.
“As we hope to revolutionize the way people shop for car insurance, Metromile is working to redefine the way people pay for insurance,” said compare.com President and CEO Andrew Rose. “From day-one, we’ve wanted to provide customers transparent comparison in the hopes that we can help them find the right policy and save money, and there is no better way to do this than work with a company like Metromile with such an innovative offering like pay-per-mile insurance.”
Metromile’s product is one of the first to provide an alternative to traditional insurance policies. Metromile caters to low-mileage drivers, a population that makes up 65 percent of U.S. drivers. Rather than paying a standard monthly premium, Metromile is based simply on how many miles you drive - so customers that drive less, spend less on car insurance. With tools such as a mobile app to help drivers find their cars and avoid parking tickets, they take customer service beyond just responding to claims and aim to make driving and owning a car as easy as possible.
"The vast majority of Metromile's customers come from companies like Progressive and Geico and typically save more than $500 a year by switching to pay-per-mile insurance," said Katy Allen, Director of Business Development at Metromile. "More and more people are using services like compare.com to shop insurance options and because they get a real quote, it's a great way for customers to see savings first hand."
