About Icon


Metromile can help save low-mileage drivers an average of $741/year on car insurance. With pay-per-mile insurance, you pay for what you use—so if you drive less, you pay less. Our base rates start at just $29/mo plus a few cents for each mile you drive. Our smart driving app makes car ownership as seamless, affordable and as simple as it can be. And get connected to your car using the ‘Metromile Pulse’, our device that puts important information like your car’s location at your fingertips.

We launched Ride Along™, a free new way to know if your driving can result in a lower car insurance rate before making a purchase. You can begin a Ride Along after downloading the Metromile app and getting a free quote in minutes. Then, your Ride Along begins with no obligation to purchase from Metromile—just go about your routines and have your smartphone in your vehicle when you drive. After about two weeks, you will see how much you drove and your expected monthly bill. In select states, you can also save up to an additional 40% on your initial Metromile quote for demonstrating safe driving habits during your Ride Along.

How it works:

Pay-per-mile car insurance means that you pay for what you use. Install Metromile App or visit our website and get a free car insurance quote. We start with a low, monthly rate, and then charge a low per mile rate for each mile you drive. As simple as that. Using the Pulse device, you can know your car’s location, know when street sweeping is happening, where you’re parked, check your miles, review your trips, and more. Choose from a list of coverage options and get the coverage you want, for a lot less. Log in or scan your license for an affordable quote. Sign up today and start saving.

Version 2.1.0

We've been hard at work on an awesome new experience for everyone!

You might ask - where did Car Health go? It's still there. Tap the car avatar on the map to be taken to the Car Health view. If an engine code detected that will show up as a card on the overview screen.

Redesigned Overview Cards
The new streamlined overview experience is designed to ensure any information you need is delivered right to you - front and center. Rather than show you a static set of cards the cards you see are dynamic. We have some great ideas for new cards in the future to deliver you timely, important information.

More details:
- A persistent billing card shows you the most up-to-date status of your bill.
- Overview cards have been redesigned to allow for more information to be shown at once.
- The fuel gauge (available only for specific cars) has been merged with the car avatar. We're really proud of its animated entrance too!
- The engine code card will only show up when a code is detected. Tap it to be taken to the Car Health view.
- Multiple engine codes are now clumped together in one card.
- Settings has been redesigned. Each car now has its own settings area that can be accessed independently of which vehicle is current active.
