Progressive vs. MetroMile
Progressive and MetroMile are very different companies. MetroMile is a start-up that currently only provides insurance in 8 states, while Progressive is a well-known brand that services all 50 states. However, they both have a reputation for good customer service.
If you’re considering MetroMile, you likely live in a large city and don’t drive often. This innovative insurance provider’s claim to fame is its pay-per-mile coverage. Although Progressive lacks this feature, it makes up for it with its many discounts.
