How do your auto insurance premiums change when you select "commute" on your application?
If your primary use of your vehicle is driving to and from work, you should select a "commuter" car insurance policy. On average, commuter use car insurance costs $11 more per year than pleasure use auto insurance. On average, a commuter car insurance policy costs between $1,432 and $1,445 annually. Let’s assess some popular car insurance companies offering commuter policies.
Most car insurance companies distinguish commuting vehicles from pleasure use cars, which are usually driven less often. Insurers assign commuter insurance policies to drivers who use their vehicle only for their daily commute. See below common mileage classifications and insurance premiums for common vehicle uses.
