How does telematics work?

Telematics infographicAll you need to do is fit a ‘black box’ into your car. By tracking your vehicle’s movements through GPS systems, your insurer can see how well you drive. It’s a lot less ‘big brother’ than it sounds and the information you provide through the ‘black box could save you money on your premiums in the long run.

  • young drivers
  • inexperienced drivers
  • less frequent drivers with a low annual mileage

If you fall into one of these groups telematics insurance could help you pay cheaper premiums, but it's great for anyone who's a safe driver.
