Telematics - How Does It Work?

More Details
Telematics BoxClever
Set Your KMs

Telematics is literally a combination of the two words, telecommunications and informatics. Simply, it’s the technology of sending, receiving and storing information relating to a remote item. You need to make an estimation of the KMS you will drive. If your KMS are lower, your insurance will be cheaper, but if your KMS are higher, you will need to top up with an additional cost.

Get Your Box

This can be a “box” device which is fitted to a car which is why telematics insurance is more often referred to as “box insurance” or “black box insurance”. First Ireland Telematics Insurance, Boxclever by AIG Europe S.A , operates on this principle. The box device allows our insurer to assess the number of kilometres driven and driving behaviour over time.

Drive & Learn

This enables our insurer to calculate a driving score which is used to accurately apply an individual premium rating at renewal time and to calculate good driver “reward kilometres”. This way you can learn how well you drive and how you can become a better driver.
