Drive Wiser GPS car insurance is the ultimate evolution in the use of telematics technology. Instead of monitoring, restricting and penalising drivers, we choose to use the box to empower them with the freedom to learn behind the wheel while also giving them reassurance in the event of a vehicle theft or disputed accident.
And if your driving data proves that you have stayed safe and legal when we assess it at renewal time, we will be able to offer you the best possible price on your premium. Drive Wiser, smart insurance for smart drivers.
GPS insurance – what's the deal?
GPS insurance, also called black box or telematics insurance, utilises GPS technology to record essential data about your car's speed, location and use, and, by scoring these things, your overall driving behaviour.
Drive Wiser's GPS device is small – around the same size as a smartphone – and it's fitted in your car to record driving data which we use to inform you, via weekly email updates and on your Dashboard, of your driving habits (both the good and bad!).
We believe that GPS car insurance holds real benefits, especially for new and young drivers, because the information collected by the device allows our customers to learn about their driving and improve where necessary: helping them to stay safe and legal, and improve road safety for everyone.
And that's not forgetting the ability to provide data which can help quickly and cost-effectively settle disputed accidents and incident claims, as well as the usefulness in recovering stolen vehicles (the UK has the highest rate of vehicle theft in the whole of Europe).
Drive Wiser, watching out for you using in-car smart technology.
You are free to access the data
You are free to log onto your online Dashboard whenever you choose. Once there you can see the following information:
- Your journeys
- The speed driven
- The roads used
- The times at which you drive
- Your mileage
- Your Driving Score, which also includes accelerating, breaking and cornering information
How is it fitted?
The answer is quickly and conveniently. When you buy a policy with Drive Wiser, you will be agreeing to have the device fitted in your car. The installation process is very straightforward and will be done within a specified time period of your purchasing the policy (see our page on Box Fitting for more info). Of course, you are insured from your chosen start date.
Some black box car insurance companies don't use a designated device but instead rely on an app in your smartphone. There are many potential problems with this. For example, you might lose your phone, run out of battery or suffer a malfunction. In contrast, Drive Wiser's device is fitted in your car to be there when you need it most.
