With its telematics insurance policy, if you are 24 years old or younger at the time of purchasing the insurance policy then you will have a black box professionally fitted to your car and a dash cam will be fitted on your dashboard. If you are 25 years old or older then you will just have the black box fitted to your car.
Only Young Drivers/Only Smart Drivers provides three types of cover:
Comprehensive car insurance
Third party, fire and theft
All three policies use telematics to record how many miles you drive in your car. It is important that you advise as best to your knowledge when setting up the policy what is the maximum amount of miles you will drive during the year as this will effect the price of your premiums.
The GPS records where your car is parked overnight, therefore when you buy your insurance policy it is also important to advise correctly where your car will be parked overnight the majority of the time otherwise there might be an additional premium to pay.
Only Young Drivers/Only Smart Drivers does not offer a multi-car insurance discount.
Taking out a multi-car insurance policy can help reduce your insurance costs:
if you own more than one car
if you’re a family with more than one driver
