Our unique Smartdriver app – Telematics without the box!
Do you want cost of your insurance to be based on how well and carefully you drive but don’t want the hassle of having a ‘black box’ driver monitoring unit installed into your car? Do you want to drive when and how much you like?* Do you want a great value product designed with young drivers like you in mind provided by a top insurer? If the answer to all these questions is ‘Yes’ then our brand new Smartdriver App is the product for you.
All you need is a smartphone** – simply take out cover online or over the phone -download our app from the Apple Store or Google play connect it to your car’s Bluetooth*** and you’re away ! All you then need to do is remember to take your phone with you when you drive your car - be honest – when was the last time you forgot your phone? - so that shouldn’t be a problem at all !
Our clever little App will automatically connect to your Bluetooth when you get in the car, start recording your journey’s when you set off and it will stop again when they are over – so you don’t need to do anything – other than drive safely and carefully.
Each journey you make will be given a score. The maximum possible score is plus 10 and the worst possible score is minus 10. These scores are then reviewed every Monday and then reset back to zero. So if you have a bad week don’t worry, you can always start fresh on Monday afternoon. However the better your weekly scores throughout the year the bigger the discount we will give you off your renewal premium!
We will also send you weekly feedback on your driving style along with handy hints and tips on how to improve your driving and look after your car via the App messaging facility – how neat is that.
