SmartRide program criteria differ in California and North Carolina. Stated discounts are approximations. Discounts do not apply to all coverage elements; actual savings vary by state, coverage selections, rating factors and policy changes. Enrollment discount applies during data collection; final discount is calculated on driving behavior and could be zero. Final discount applies at the next policy renewal and is subject to change based upon actuarial support at subsequent renewals or with changes in drivers or vehicles on the policy.

SmartMiles details and availability varies. The SmartMiles variable premium is based upon the Cost Per Mile established for the coverages in force and the number of days and miles driven when the coverage is in force. The SmartMiles Driving Behavior Discount could be zero and does not apply to all coverage elements; actual savings vary by state, coverage selections, rating factors and policy changes. The Driving Behavior discount applies at the next policy renewal and remains while the vehicle is enrolled in SmartMiles. Estimated payments are subject to change based upon the final rated mileage during the mileage period and any policy changes.
