Stay-at-home orders due to coronavirus means people are driving less, and the drop has been significant.
According to tracking group Arity, the total number of miles traveled is down more than 50% nationwide. Motorists began changing their behaviors within a week of March 8, the data shows, just as coronavirus restrictions began spreading across the country. As a result of fewer cars on the road, several major insurers are offering rebates to their customers.
Here are some of the companies represented by Ferri Dawson Insurance Group, along with their announced plans for discounts:
MetLife: for April and May, MetLife Auto customers who are paid to date will receive a 15% credit based on their monthly premiums. MetLife will automatically apply the earned credit(s) to the next billing statements.
Nationwide: Auto insurance customers will get a one-time $50 refund for each Auto policy they have with Nationwide. Timing will vary by state.
Progressive: Progressive is providing a 20% credit on premiums paid in April and May. Credits will start being applied automatically to your account beginning in May or June.
Travelers: Travelers will automatically give U.S. personal auto insurance customers a 15% credit on their April and May premiums.
