Car insurance has never been guilty of using or involving high technology type equipment for cover. For years, it has been a mundane type consumer product. Drivers are quite understanding of what car insurance will do for them once they have purchased it and what it will not be doing for them. Expectations of what occurs following a car crash are understood. Typically, support and financial assistance will be provided by an insurer after a car crash and the driver has made a claim.
Now, times have changed. A new type of car insurance is available which is revolutionising the market and turning the heads of drivers all over the UK. It is known as telematics pay as you drive car insurance and the industry will never be the same.
Telematics car insurance is the first car cover of its kind. It involves high tech equipment, although it remains quite user friendly for drivers who acquire it. A small device is at the center of telematics car insurance. This small device is known as a POD or personal optimisation device.
This device is what makes telematics car insurance possible. It performs functions which have never been possible associated with car insurance. It monitors driving habits like acceleration, braking and cornering, as well as many other habits. Drivers can now prove they are able to handle a car with safety. This makes it possible to qualify for rewards the insurer presents to them after demonstrating safe handling of a car.
Telematics car insurance is the first cover to utilise a personal optimisation device. This device is making it possible for drivers to prove they can handle a car safely and then qualify for monthly insurance savings.
