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. SmartMiles measures mileage, and monthly email updates make it easy to see the estimated premium.
