SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Metromile, the company transforming car insurance, has taken steps to support customers affected by the government shutdown.
Metromile will enable customers who are federal employees currently affected by the shutdown to pause auto payments on their current insurance bill for as long as the shutdown persists.
"Loyalty is a two-way street," said Dan Preston, CEO at Metromile. "Metromile customers are fiercely loyal to us, and it's our job to ensure they can rely on us for a positive experience in good times and bad. We know this is a period of hardship for many, and we want to do our part to ease the financial burden faced by customers affected by the shutdown."
Metromile is currently available in eight states, Ariz., Calif., Ill., N.J., Ore., Pa., Va., and Wash., with plans to bring pay-per-mile insurance nationwide. For more information, visit metromile.com or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Metromile is the leading pay-per-mile car insurance company in the U.S. We're disrupting a $250 billion auto insurance category by offering an entirely new type of insurance that charges customers based on the miles you drive. We believe paying for what you use is more fair and more affordable. We also believe in the power of data science and machine learning to make car insurance better and less complicated. In August, 2018 we secured a $90 million Series E investment led by Tokio Marine and Intact.
AVA, Metromile's AI-driven claims system, is designed to speed up the process of verifying and paying out insurance claims. Using Metromile Pulse sensor data, AVA can reconstruct the scene of an accident to instantly determine if claim details are accurate. When the claim is verified, Metromile is able to automatically approve payments within seconds.
