A brief description of Bell Car Insurance
The company specialises in car insurance for first time drivers, safe drivers and young drivers. On their website, they claim that their telematics ‘black box’ car insurance will mean that their customers won’t pay for other people’s bad driving. This unique selling point sets them apart from many other insurers. They claim that their Plug & Drive Technology enables safe drivers to pay a fairer price for their car insurance.
Currently, they are one of a few insurance firms catering for young drivers. Certainly, cynics may argue that fitting a black box recorder in your car (which tracks and records your driving style and history for three months) is a reflection of the surveillance state. However, many young and inexperienced drivers will consider this a fair deal in exchange for three months of being able to demonstrate that they are not a ‘racer’, or have lead in their boots. The company describes the benefits of black box insurance (or Plug & Drive Technology as it is also known) in these ways:
- Simple 12v in-car unit that you return to the company after just 3 months
- Simple installation just plug & drive
- No curfews
- No monthly mileage limit
- Most customers get an extra insurance discount after 3 months.
