What is LOW MILER car insurance?

We'll go the extra mile so that you won't need to.

LOW MILER is car insurance linked directly to the miles you drive. It's designed for people who don’t use their cars often or those who travel shorter distances. Your annual mileage plays an important part in how insurance is calculated. Simply put, the more miles you drive the more you risk having an accident, and this is partly reflected in how much you pay. So, what if you don’t drive many miles and your risk is therefore lower than higher mileage drivers?

 

Car insurance for the miles you drive

 

LOW MILER is a fairer way to provide car insurance for those who don’t drive as many miles. Using a smart LOW MILER device we can keep track of your miles giving you a fairer price for your needs. 

Who could LOW MILER car insurance suit?

 

  • You live in the city and don’t regularly use your car 
  • You’re reducing the number of days you drive to work
  • You only drive your car at weekends
  • You're 25 years old or above
  • You’ve bought a second car 
  • You regularly drive under 7,000 miles a year
  • You want to reduce your carbon footprint
     

 

Here's how to get started

Four simple steps to low mileage cover
Add up your annual mileage

To see how far you regularly drive compare the mileage on your last two MOT certificates. We also have a handy mileage calculator on our quote pages to help you.

To get your quote you'll need to let us know how many miles you think you'll drive over the year along with some details about yourself and your car.

How LOW MILER could save you money

We'll regularly update you on your mileage use which may help you to stay in control of your insurance cost. 

When you need more miles

It's easy to top up!

You’re only covered for the amount of miles you’ve selected but don’t worry, if you think you’ll need more you can amend your mileage at any point during your policy year. It’s most cost-effective to do this during your first month, where you can buy mileage in 1,000 mile increments. 

After this you can still top up your miles. This will be offered in smaller increments, but please note this will be a more expensive option. The cost of your top up miles is based on the information used to price your insurance and the amount of miles you’re buying.

 

Where do I fit the LOW MILER device?

Get started in seconds with easy installation

The device fits into your car’s OBD-II socket (that's an on-board computer socket to you and me). It's usually found around the dashboard or footwell below the steering wheel. To find your car’s OBD socket (on-board computer) please visit www.wikiobd.co.uk or download their free wiki OBD app from the App Store or Google Play and follow the simple steps to find your car.
