How to use the HiRoad app
As a car insurance company, we know the idea of “up to 50% off every month” on your insurance bill may feel a little too good to be true, but with the HiRoad app and your good driving behaviors—it’s possible.
How does it all work? Here’s a run down:
1. Sign up
First, you’ll need a HiRoad policy. Right now HiRoad car insurance is available to drivers living in Arizona or Rhode Island. You can get a quote on your desktop or mobile browser or the HiRoad app—usually in five, ten minutes tops.
In the quote process, you’ll be able to select your coverage options and deductible amounts.
Download the HiRoad app on iOS or Android and log into your HiRoad account. If it’s your first time logging into the app, you’ll be asked to set your permissions. These permissions allow the app to measure info while you’re driving to help calculate your personalized monthly bill and reward your good driving.
3. Start driving (use the app)
Any time you get behind the wheel, have your phone with you—in a cradle, on silent and out of your hands. While you’re driving and focused on the road, the app is working in the background to collect driving data. The app uses the tools built into your phone to measure your habits behind the wheel. HiRoad uses that information to calculate your four driving scores and your monthly reward.
4. Keep driving and start saving
As you keep driving and recording your trips, the HiRoad app will build your monthly discount, which is calculated based on the way you drive over time, not just one trip, so if you have a drive that is less than mindful, no sweat.
