Did you know that Nationwide will reward you for driving safely? That’s right—with Nationwide’s SmartRide, a usage-based discount program, you can earn up to 40% on your auto insurance.  Discounts earned may not be on all coverages but do include collision, liability, medical payments and personal injury protection. There is even a 10% discount just for enrolling! Then, based on driving history, additional discounts can be earned at the following renewal.

Discounts earned are based off the following factors: fast accelerations, hard braking, miles driven, idling time and night-time driving. The program lasts from four to six months. Plus, you’ll receive a weekly summary email updating your driving performance from the previous week, so you always know how you’re doing. You can also receive personalized feedback on your driving and tips on how to improve.  

The SmartRide option can be a great money-saver for customers who are driving less than 8,000 miles per vehicle per year. And, if you have a youthful driver or have more vehicles than drivers in a household, this program may particularly be a good fit! 

It works simply enough — the safer you drive, the greater the discounts. SmartRide does not collect GPS information and will not detect your location. Driving data is only collected to help you become a safer driver – and won’t negatively impact your premium.  You can withdraw from the program at any time and there’s no additional cost to participate.

Safety pays and we want to pass those discounts on to you!
