Motor insurance is one of those annual purchases which we'd all rather do without but have a legal obligation to sort out and buy each year. If you don't drive much it can seem a real pain, especially as many insurers won't actually give you genuine low mileage car insurance.
As there are so many drivers out there who tell insurers they are going to drive less than they actually do over the year, car insurance firms generally calculate the car insurance quote on more miles than the customer actually stated when they asked for a quote.
So, if you tell your insurer you are going to drive 6,000 miles, because that's what you think you will do, the insurer will quote a premium based on you doing more miles – perhaps 8,000 miles or even 10,000 miles.
Even if, at the end of the year, you have actually driven 6,000 miles there is no way to get your money back.
insurethebox low mileage car insurance counts the miles
An insurethebox car insurance quote is completely different because when you take out cover with us we will organise the fitting of a telematic data gathering device known as an in-tele-box. This clever little gadget is attached to your car and counts your miles as you drive, so we know exactly how far you have driven.
What this ultimately means is that if you tell us you are likely to drive 6,000 miles then that is the mileage we will base your car insurance quote on, and so our car insurance premiums are usually cheaper.
And if you realise you need more miles all you have to do is buy some more, rather like you would top up your pay-as-you-go mobile phone.
Your insurethebox Customer Portal tells you all you need to know
Once the box is fitted and working it will send back all sorts of driving information to your personal Customer Portal page, so you can see how many miles you are driving, when you are driving, how fast you drive and lots more besides.
What's more, safer drivers will find they can earn Bonus Miles – these are additional miles which can be used to offset the cost if you require extra miles.
So, safer drivers who only travel short distances can not only get a true low mileage car insurance quote, but they can also earn extra miles to enable them to do some extra motoring on top.
