Esurance Launches Mileage-Based Insurance Policy in Oregon

October 7, 2015

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer insurance company, has launched a new mileage-based insurance offering called Esurance Pay Per Mile, available first to Oregon drivers.

“Esurance is responding to consumer demand for alternative insurance options for those who drive less, opting to walk, bike, or take public transportation instead,” said Eric Madia, auto products vice president at Esurance. “With Esurance Pay Per Mile, our customers will pay largely based on how many miles they drive, whether that’s 1,000 or 10,000 miles per year.”

Esurance Pay Per Mile is an option for drivers who have a low annual mileage or flexible commuting options. It offers the same coverage options as an unlimited-mileage policy, but of course, the less you drive, the more you save. If you don’t drive at all, you only pay the low monthly base cost. Or, if a road trip is in your future, you can hit the road knowing you’ll only be charged a maximum of 150 miles in a day.

Esurance automatically tracks mileage and GPS location through a small device that easily plugs into a port in the dashboard of your vehicle known as the OBD-II port. When insureds sign up, they receive instructions to log into their Esurance Pay Per Mile account, which allows them to set alerts and monitor their detailed driving history.

Esurance provides auto, homeowners, motorcycle, and renters insurance direct to consumers online, over the phone, and through select agents, including sister company, Answer Financial. It is a member of the Allstate family.
