insurethebox provides a motor insurance product which harnesses telematics technology to assess individual driving habits.
Driving behaviour is assessed by fitting a telematics box (Clear Box) to the motor vehicle. Clear Box is about the size of a mobile phone and is fitted inside the car. The telematics device sends the following information from the vehicle:
– Number of journeys made
– Distances travelled
– Types of roads used
– Time of travel
– Levels of acceleration and braking
When users purchase the car insurance from insurethebox, Octo Telematics will fit the Clear Box using their approved national network of qualified fitters.
Clear Box is a telematics device supplied Octo Telematics and manufactured by Octo’s parent company Meta System.
