Instructions to agents

The BonusDrive program is an incentive from the auto manufacturer that is designed to influence the buying process outside of the dealer transaction. Agents are encouraged to discuss the program with Nationwide members, but let them know that this is an incentive offered through the manufacturer, not the dealership. In no circumstance should the BonusDrive program be marketed with a dealer or used as an incentive during the insurance sales process.
