|About||Metromile offers pay per mile car insurance that is ideal for people who don't drive a lot. You'll pay a low monthly rate, plus a charge based on the actual miles you drive. So if you don’t drive a lot, you can save a lot on car insurance. You can customize your coverage and select from the same options you're used to. Then, you'll plug in a small device into your car that counts your miles and lets you know what’s going on with your car at all times. At the end of the month, your bill will be a total of your base rate plus the number of miles you drive, so it can vary each month depending on how much you drive. Plus, you don’t have to worry about going “over” on miles. If you reach 250 miles (or 150 for New Jersey drivers) in one day, you won’t be charged for any more miles that day.||Since 1938, Progressive has made it easy to understand, buy, and use car insurance. In fact, as one of the largest insurance companies out there and the number one personal auto insurer by written premium among independent agents, you can choose the coverage options that make the most sense to you.|

Do I need to put everyone in my household on my policy?
It's usually recommended to add everyone who lives in the household on the same policy if it's likely they will be driving the insured car, and insurance companies generally require everyone in the household of driving age to be listed on the policy. But if the others in the household already have their own insurance and vehicles, this would be unnecessary.How many cars can I have on my progressive policy?
Hello, Most companies — including Progressive — will allow four cars per policy. Of course, it's always a good idea to check with your insurance company if you are unsure about whether or not your cars are covered.Why won't my insurance recognize or cover Tesla labor rates?
Each insurance company has different guidelines when it comes to how they handle claims and repairs.

When I buy another car a few months from now, will I get higher rates for a lapse in coverage?
