Passing your driving test is only just the
beginning… To some young drivers, the hard work starts
when it comes to finding affordable insurance that can help them get out and enjoy the freedom
they’ve worked hard to get… …Endlessly trawling website to find a policy
that doesn’t cost the earth… So why is insurance for a young driver SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
expensive? Well, on the whole young drivers have more
accidents…and so the higher price of getting covered reflects this…
However, we know that not every young driver is a girl or boy racer …in fact the truth
is most are careful, responsible drivers just keen to learn and get even better…and we
want to help you save money. The easiest way to get cheaper young driver
insurance is by taking out a black box policy. By taking out a telematics policy you’ll
be rewarded with cover that’s much more affordable, and reflects your ability as a
driver, rather than statistics of all young drivers! So what exactly is Black Box Insurance?
For those not yet in the know, black box insurance can be a bit daunting; some kind of mechanical
monster tracking their every move and watching over them like Big Brother…
…but in reality, it’s more like a friend; a co-pilot; a virtual Mr Miyagi helping young
and new drivers improve their skills AND save them money! Once you take out a policy, we send an engineer
to fit your black box to your car… It’s small, discreet and fitted out of sight, so
you won’t even know that it’s there. …Many young drivers are worried that by
having a black box fitted to your car, then their every move is being monitored, and their
privacy being invaded… but that’s just a myth!
Don’t worry… Big Brother ISN’T watching you!
What does it record? So what exactly does it record? All the black
box does is tell us how you’re driving by capturing your braking, speed, acceleration
and how you drive round corners. It also keeps track of the number of miles you’re driving,
and notes the time, location and type of road you’re on… all of which is used purely
to work out your driving score and let you know how you’re doing. …What’s more, if you are involved in an
accident and need help proving that it wasn’t your fault, the black box could come to your
rescue! Some telematics insurance providers insist
on giving their customers a curfew…but not us! With our black box, you can drive whenever
you want to! We care HOW you drive, not WHEN! You’re not Cinderella, and we won’t turn
your car into a pumpkin if you’re out past midnight! We just want you to drive safely
and responsibly, that’s all. …Also no curfew means no public transport
at night… giving you one less thing to worry about! And what’s more, you don’t need to pay
for miles that you don’t drive; just buy the miles you need! Want to keep costs down?
You can choose a policy with less miles… and if you look like you’re close to your
limit, we’ll let you know so you can top them up… and help you keep on track. And if you want to know how you’re driving,
it’s simple… You can monitor your driving performance via your personal dashboard…
just log-in via your smart phone, tablet or pc, and you can see a breakdown of every journey
you’ve driven. What’s more, we rate you’re driving from good to high risk, based on how
well you’ve driven each journey. So you can see where you’ve been on top of your
game, and those journeys where you might have needed a little more work. For most young drivers insuring their car
can seem just far too expensive…and can even prevent them from getting on the road
at all. Well we are here to help… The low premium you pay with a black box policy is
based on the assumption that you are a good, responsible driver. What you pay is based
upon how well you drive, and not on what the statistics say how all young people drive.
We believe this is the fairest way to insure young drivers – good drivers get rewarded
with cheaper premiums and renewal discounts; and those drivers that don’t drive so well
may get charged extra- it’s as simple as that.
Insurance for young drivers doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive… the aim
of our black box is simple… we want to help young people get cheaper insurance, and help
create better, more responsible drivers. Get a black box insurance policy, become a
better driver AND save money – You’re in control!
