(PRWEB UK) 26 November 2012
Possibly one of the most talked about topics in the world of motoring is the growth of telematics based car insurance products. By being able to monitor when cars are used, how far they drive and how well they are driven, insurers are able to offer some groups of driver’s lower insurance premiums. In its ongoing commitment to offer a wide range of choice to UK shoppers, car insurance comparison site Tiger.co.uk has introduced a new telematics brand, iGO4’s Wise Driving, to its car insurance panel – making it the only car insurance comparison site in the UK to offer car insurance quotes from eight telematics brands.
Telematics involves the fitting of a small box – about the same size as a mobile phone – to a vehicle and monitoring a motorist’s actual driving performance in order to price their motor insurance policy. The new product from iGO4 rewards good driving with reduced premiums throughout the policy year rather than at renewal and evaluates driving solely on behaviour, not the time of day the vehicle is driven or the roads it is driven on.
Andrew Goulborn, Commercial Director from Tiger.co.uk commented; “We are very pleased to be introducing another telematics partner to our panel. The addition of iGO4’s Wise Driving will make us the only car insurance comparison site to feature eight telematics insurers (alongside insurethebox, i-kube, Coverbox, Autosaint, Bell safe driver scheme, Hastings Direct SmartMiles and Carrot ), providing quotes to car insurance shoppers. We are seeing very high take up of policies based on this technology, particularly when it comes to finding cheap car insurance for young drivers – a group that has been hard hit by insurance inflation over recent years.”
