Car Insurance For Low-Mileage Drivers
The coroanvirus pandemic has had an enormous impact on our day-to-day lives, including how we travel. As a result of working from home, and the rise of online meetings, we’re driving less than ever before. As a result, a company is now offering a new car insurance policy specifically designed for low-mileage drivers. Provider More Than’s new ‘The Low Miler’ product uses telematics devices to ‘provide a fairer way of offering car insurance for those who use their cars less often or travel shorter distances’.
Customers simply select an annual mileage allowance, up to a maximum of 7,000 miles. They’re then sent a device that simply plugs into a socket in their car. It’ll then track their mileage and offer them the means to buy ‘top-up’ miles if they need them. According to More Than, 17% of British drivers expect to use their cars less frequently over the next 12 months. In addition, 55% of drivers expect to spend more time at home and 26% anticipate changing working patterns. Finally, 24% of drivers believe they’ll be travelling less during their commutes as a result of the coroanvirus pandemic; although 30% expect to use their cars more frequently to visit friends and family.
A ‘Fair Deal’ For Low Mileage Drivers
Anthony Aronin, head of telematics at More Than, emphasised that the new product was designed to offer low-mileage drivers a ‘fair deal’. He said, “how we drive and use our cars won’t be the same for some as we come out of this pandemic. With more flexible working arrangements and less commuting, some people will likely be driving less”. He added, “that’s why we’re launching More Than Low Miler, an innovative way of linking premiums to the miles customers drive, giving those who drive fewer miles a fairer deal”.
More options for motorists, catered to their personal circumstances, can only be a good thing. It’ll be interesting to see how long the effects of the pandemic last; and whether regular driving and working patterns ever return to pre-pandemic levels.
