Progressive: “Snapshot

Drivers can choose a device that uses telematics science technology to remotely monitor and collect data. The Snapshot device plugs into the car and records driving habits. Progressive also offers the option of a mobile app that tracks driving information. Either way, the system works much like other usage-based programs. Information regarding your driving habits is gathered and sent to Progressive. Progressive reviews the data, and insurance rates are adjusted accordingly. This discount could be up to 30 percent according to the program’s marketing. Progressive does offer an initial discount for signing up, and it promises up to 30 percent off after the 6-month review period is over, when your policy renews.

 

*Not all Telematics Programs are available in all States.  Please contact our office to discuss what will work for you.
