At insurethebox we’re all about encouraging and rewarding safe driving. There are two ways we do this:
- Awarding additional miles each month to safe drivers
- Offering the possibility of better prices at renewal for safe drivers
When you buy your car insurance policy with insurethebox you choose a specific package of Policy Miles (6,000, 8,000 or 10,000). As a reward for driving safely, we give you the opportunity to add to your initial mileage allowance by earning extra miles – Bonus Miles – each month.
You can earn up to 100 Bonus Miles a month – that’s 1,200 extra miles a year!
So if you work out that you’re going to drive 6,200 miles in the year, as long as you drive safely, 6,000 Policy Miles could well be enough for you if you take into account the potential Bonus Miles.
How it works
When you take out your insurethebox policy you will have a pocket-size black box fitted to your car.
The data from this black box fitted in your car tells us:
- The time of day or night you drive
- The speed you drive at on different sorts of road
- If you brake or accelerate sharply
- If you take breaks on long journeys
- Your motorway miles
- Your total mileage
The box can also help us locate your car if it’s stolen, and alert us when you have an accident, if it senses a strong impact on the car.
How we calculate your Bonus Miles score
Bonus Miles are awarded by looking at five criteria:
How to find your driving score
You can check your Bonus Miles score each month by visiting Your Portal. This is also where you can find your policy information, documents and mileage summary.
After your first 5-6 weeks of driving with us, check your page and you’ll see your score for the last month as well as a rating for each safe driving category.
What happens at renewal
When your policy year comes to an end, we’ll take into account your Bonus Miles scores from the year when calculating your renewal quote. If you’ve proven that you’re a safe driver, you could get a discount.
