SmartMiles® is a great tool for potentially increasing sales while also helping low-mileage drivers save on car insurance. This short video provides an overview of how low-mileage drivers can benefit from SmartMiles.

How SmartMiles works

SmartMiles offers the same great coverage as a traditional Nationwide auto policy but with a flexible monthly premium that's based on mileage. The premium consists of two parts: a base rate and a mileage rate. A small in-car device measures mileage, and monthly email updates make it easy to see the estimated premium.

SmartMiles $95 total rate; $60 variable rate, 7 cents per mile times miles driven per month; $35 base rate; 500 miles per month
Traditional policy $133; unlimited mileage
*Actual scenario in Chicago, IL: single 35-year-old male, 2017 Jeep Cherokee L, no traffic violations or accidents in the last 3 years, includes average final safe driving behavior discount. Data is through November 2020.
