IntelliDrive is a program that rewards safe driving with savings. By enrolling, safe driving habits can lead to savings of up to 30%, while riskier driving habits may result in a higher premium.1
Time of Day - When you drive can be as important as how you drive. Avoid driving really late at night to help improve your score.
Speed - High speeds mean less time to react to hazards around you.
Acceleration - Smooth acceleration is easier on your car and good for your score.
Braking - Avoid following too closely to better anticipate what other drivers are doing around you and avoid hard breaking.
Distraction2 – Avoid making handheld calls, texting, and any other physical interactions with your phone while driving.
What’s in the IntelliDrive App:
App Dashboard – This is your home base. Quickly check your driving performance, most recent trips and see safe driving tips.
Distraction Free Streak – See how many trips you’ve completed in a row without interacting with your phone. Streaks are a fun way to challenge yourself and your family to put down your phones and reduce distracted driving.

Trip Details – Get details about a specific trip, with a map that highlights where you have had an event like a hard brake, or a fast acceleration.

After installing IntelliDrive on your smartphone, the app will automatically detect when you get into a vehicle and start a trip. It will collect driving information for 90 days and then determine your overall driving performance. Based on the driving performance of you and the other participating drivers on the policy, your actual adjusted car insurance rate will be reflected the first time your policy renews.
IntelliDrive captures information about driving habits associated with Braking, Acceleration, Speed, Time of Day, and Phone Use. After each trip, you can review a map of your route, and your driving performance to date. Collection of location data does not affect your auto insurance rate.
Any handheld interaction with the phone while driving is going to negatively impact your distraction score. This includes things like in-hand phone calls, texting, typing, and tapping on the phone.
Applications that are running on your phone, but don't require you to interact with the phone, will not negatively impact the distraction score. For example, if navigation or music is running in the background and you're not engaging with it, this will not impact the distraction score.
Interacting with vehicle infotainment systems will not impact your distraction score.
