Compare.com Welcomes Metromile as Newest Insurance Partner

Compare.com customers in California will now be able to compare
Metromile rates on their website

RICHMOND, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Compare.com, the first true car insurance comparison website in the
United States, has welcomed Metromile, a pioneer in pay-per-mile car
insurance, to their website offerings. Metromile is now providing quotes
to compare.com users in California, with the intention to expand their
reach to more states later this year.

Compare.com launched in March 2013 with the goal to make shopping for
car insurance easier for customers. Instead of having to compare car
insurance prices by calling multiple insurance carriers and remembering
which coverages were quoted, compare.com teams up with 70 insurance
brands to make comparing easy. By filling out one simple form,
compare.com can help customers easily compare insurance prices
side-by-side, with the knowledge that the quotes they receive are for
the exact same coverages. If a customer sees a quote they’d like to buy
on compare.com, they can click the “Buy Now,” button and work directly
with the carrier of their choice to complete the sale.

“As we hope to revolutionize the way people shop for car insurance,
Metromile is working to redefine the way people pay for insurance,” said
compare.com President and CEO Andrew Rose. “From day-one, we’ve wanted
to provide customers transparent comparison in the hopes that we can
help them find the right policy and save money, and there is no better
way to do this than work with a company like Metromile with such an
innovative offering like pay-per-mile insurance.”

Metromile’s product is one of the first to provide an alternative to
traditional insurance policies. Metromile caters to low-mileage drivers,
a population that makes up 65 percent of U.S. drivers. Rather than
paying a standard monthly premium, Metromile is based simply on how many
miles you drive – so customers that drive less, spend less on car
insurance. With tools such as a mobile app to help drivers find their
cars and avoid parking tickets, they take customer service beyond just
responding to claims and aim to make driving and owning a car as easy as
possible.

“The vast majority of Metromile’s customers come from companies like
Progressive and Geico and typically save more than $500 a year by
switching to pay-per-mile insurance,” said Katy Allen, Director of
Business Development at Metromile. “More and more people are using
services like compare.com to shop insurance options and because they get
a real quote, it’s a great way for customers to see savings first hand.”
