Low miles discount We have several insurance companies that base your auto premium on your annual mileage and daily driving habits. So if you drive less than the average person, retired, work from home, live downtown, own a classic car used for Sunday drives - you are rewarded with lower insurance rates. Also if you bike, walk and or use public transporation such as Via, Capital Metro or the Capital MetroRail on a regular basis - you can also save on insurance rates.
Green Home Discount With the new GreenHome Upgrade, you can add additional protection to your existing Travelers policy – protection that will help you repair, replace or rebuild with green materials after a loss. And if your home or condo is already certified green by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, you could save 5% on your premiums. If your home is damaged or destroyed by a covered accident or peril, Travelers will pay an additional amount toward costs associated with green materials and methods. So if your recipe for chicken flambé results in kitchen flambé, you could repair the damage with sustainable resources including cabinets crafted from recycled materials, Energy-Star appliances, or paints made from zero VOC (volatile organic compound). We’ll also help pay to have the debris recycled and have your home certified (or re-certified) green after a loss.
