Mileage Solutions

 

Advancements in capturing mileage can refine a critical rating factor.

There’s a strong relationship between mileage and insurance claims. As annual mileage increases, so does loss frequency. Accurate mileage matters, but many insurers struggle to capture it. They may accept unreliable self-reporting by policyholders, use overly broad bands, or skip mileage altogether.

 

Verisk stands ready to help insurers obtain reliable mileage estimates at point of sale and renewal.

Validation: Add the human touch

Verifying self-reported mileage calls for skilled outreach to avoid friction with policyholders. You can ease the pain with a specialized partner that already has the policyholder information to be validated.

Stay in compliance

Some states, most notably California, require use of mileage as a rating factor. Such requirements amplify the urgency of accurate mileage. Without it, you may misprice a large portion of your business.

The challenge of auto insurance premium leakage

Personal auto insurers have at least a $29 billion annual problem: premium leakage—omitted or misstated underwriting information that leads to inaccurate rates. With profitability under intense pressure from all sides, premium leakage demands attention.
