No, Nationwide does not have a dash cam discount, since no major car insurance company in the United States offers dash cam discounts as of March 2021. The closest thing Nationwide has to a dash cam discount is SmartRide, which monitors policyholders’ driving habits and adjusts their premiums accordingly.
SmartRide from Nationwide is a type of usage-based insurance. The program tracks miles driven, braking, acceleration, and the time of day that you drive and can save policyholders up to 40%.
Even though Nationwide does not offer a dash cam discount, purchasing a dash cam could still be worth it in the long run. For instance, dashboard cameras can help prove fault in a car accident, prevent insurance fraud, and provide evidence in traffic court.
You can get a LoJack insurance discount in most states by telling your insurer that you have LoJack and asking for an anti-theft device discount. LoJack discounts usually range from 5% to 25% off your comprehensive coverage, varying by state and company.
LoJack is a technology that emits a certain radio frequency when activated by law enforcement, which helps police recover your car if it’s stolen. As a result, having LoJack can qualify you for an anti-theft discount because your insurer is less likely to have to pay for a stolen car.… read full answer
While these companies advertise anti-theft discounts on their websites, they do not specify a particular type of anti-theft device needed to qualify. However, LoJack is likely to count. For example, New Jersey requires all insurers to provide discounts to drivers whose cars have certain anti-theft devices, and the state specifically includes vehicle recovery systems that communicate with the police on the list of eligible devices.
In the past, Progressive has offered specific LoJack discounts and even rebate programs, which refund the customer for a portion of the cost of installing LoJack. So if you’re thinking about getting LoJack and have Progressive, it’s worth keeping an eye out for special incentives.
Regardless of the insurance savings, LoJack can be a smart purchase, especially if you live in a high-risk area or your car is particularly attractive to thieves.
You can get a passive restraint discount for car insurance by having safety devices in your car, such as airbags or automatic seatbelts, that are automatically activated in a collision.

Young drivers are usually quite expensive to insure since they lack driving experience. However, Nationwide offers a good student discount because having good grades shows the insurer that you are responsible off the road, meaning you’re more likely to be responsible in the driver’s seat as well.
Nationwide good student discounts vary by state, but it’s always worth the effort of checking if they are available in your location.
