Is a black box insurance policy right for you?

Some car insurers offer a discount by fitting a special device, known as telematics or a black box, into your car. This device tracks your driving and feeds back data to an insurer to show how well you drive. You’re usually charged a fixed fee to drive a certain amount of miles a year.

Black box insurance policies measure everything from acceleration to cornering, plus the types of roads you drive and the times you drive at. This means your car insurer can get a full impression of your driving habits – and charges you accordingly.

Some black box and telematics insurance policies work by refunding drivers for good behaviour or increasing the premium for those who drive less safely.

If you answered yes to all these questions it could be...

Are you a good driver?

Do you accelerate and decelerate gently, slow down for corners and stick to speed limits?

Is your mileage relatively low?

Do you just drive locally, rather than long-distance motorway driving?

Can you avoid night-time driving?

Driving at night is more risky. Some insurers offer discounts for daylight-only drivers.

Is standard car insurance too expensive?

Young drivers pay high premiums. Many new drivers can save money with black box car insurance.

What job is the cheapest for car insurance?

How do car insurers calculate their quotes? Your job title, trade, profession or occupation could be crucial when you get a motor insurance quote. It doesn’t matter whether you use your car for work. What you do for a living gives the insurer a lot of information about you and how you might drive.  But it’s not the only factor.
