How will I be charged if I forget to upload my odometer image?

You will receive a monthly reminder by email and text message, with a link to upload your updated odometer photo. After uploading, you will be charged according to the miles you rode!

If we do not receive your photo within 5 days, you will be charged according to a predefined default mileage of up to 500 miles for that month.

No worries though!  This default mileage will be used as a credit for the following months if you actually rode less!

For example, Steve Jones has a policy with an $8 fixed rate and 10c per mile rate.

If Steve rides 100 miles in a particular month, after sending in his odometer reading he will be charged $18

What happens if Steve doesn’t upload his odometer?? He’ll pay a default mileage of 500 miles, meaning he will be charged $58. When he uploads his odometer in the following months, he will not pay for the first 500 miles that have already been paid for.

About VOOM

What is Uninsured Motor Vehicle Coverage?

By paying a premium for uninsured motorist coverage for the motorcycle listed on your policy, this coverage will pay damages for bodily injury which any insured is legally entitled to recover from the owner or operator of an uninsured motor vehicle. An uninsured motor vehicle means that the driver does not have coverage to pay  for damages to others. In some cases the uninsured driver will pay out of pocket, but this is not the standard. For this reason, you can opt to protect yourself from such situations and file a claim through your policy. For this coverage to take effect, the bodily injury must be caused by an accident and arise out of the ownership, maintenance, or use of the uninsured motor vehicle.

How does VOOM work?

With VOOM, you only pay for the miles you drive plus a low monthly base rate.

At the end of the month, you send us a photo of your odometer and we calculate the miles you rode.  We add those miles at your per-mile rate to your base rate, and that’s what you pay. It really is that simple.

Here is an example - John has a base rate of $15 and a per mile rate of $0.09. He rode 100 miles this month, so his monthly total is $24
