Customized solutions for a wide variety of customers.

Nationwide's innovative telematics programs are easily adaptable to meet the needs of your customers and save them money.

SmartRide® is an insurance program that rewards safe drivers - with discounts of up to 40% - using an app that measures driving metrics.

SmartMiles® offers the same great coverage as a traditional Nationwide auto policy but with a flexible monthly premium that’s based on mileage.

For even more savings, multi-car customers can combine SmartRide and SmartMiles on a single policy.

"The SmartRide discount is a good incentive for writing new business and is a great tool to retain existing policyholders."
— Sylvia Garrett, Ohio
