Save On Auto Insurance

I was just wondering who else really hates paying so much for car insurance?

We have two vehicles, which we barely drive. I always get state minimum coverage, but we still paid a lot. It also doesn’t help that I have an old claim on my record. I actually found a cheaper insurance for a few months, but it gradually increased over time.

After much research, I finally found the most cost effective insurance for us. Metromile charges a base rate per vehicle, then you pay per mile. I’m now paying about $35 a month.

I really dislike paying for car insurance. I completely understand the concept and it’s fabulous. My issue, is that I rarely drive so it seems ridiculous to pay so much money for it.

Months ago, I did multiple quotes online and spoke to others on the phone to get the best rate. The lowest I could get was about $60 a month through Root. So I tried them out for the six months and watched their rate increase to over $70 a month. Just before my policy ran out, we had purchased a second vehicle. We needed a backup but I cringed at having to add it to the insurance. I looked into it some options and managed to find a few companies that offered pay per mile plans. This was perfect!

After some research and quotes, I ended up signing up with Metromile. I chose the most basic coverage, state minimum. We are now paying a base rate per vehicle, plus the per mile rate. That ended up being $12.30 for the car and $18 for our truck. I had to pay the base rate up front for six months which was just over $100. Once you are set up, they send you an OBD reader so they can track your miles.

I just received my first bill after trying them for a month. It was $32.52 total, minus what I prepaid. So, I only owed $1.63 for the miles I drove. Now, that is even more fabulous. Not to mention, they also give me an Amazon gift card for each referral that I send them.
