Black box car insurance

Black Box

Getting car insurance on the cheap is not easy. It feels like every insurer is increasing their premiums and there’s nothing you can do to get reasonably priced cover for you and your car. That’s where black box car insurance comes in.

What is black box car insurance?

Black box car insurance, or Telematics insurance used GPS technology to monitor how you drive on the roads. In most cases, a small box will be fitted to the inside of your car – usually underneath your dashboard.

This box collects vital information about how you drive. The four key areas of driving it looks out for are: acceleration, braking, top speed and the time of day that you are driving. Once this info is all collected, you then get a Driving Behaviour Score (DBS) that considers all these factors. The safer you drive, the higher your score. The higher the score, the less you pay for your insurance. Simple!

Please note that the box doesn’t affect your car’s performance or warranty.
