Insure The Box Names Worse Day of the Year


According to figures released by 'Insure The Box', January has the dubious honour of being the month when they received the highest number of Accident Alerts last year. In fact, it was January 28th 2016 that was the worse day of the year.

Insure The Box is the pioneer of telematics-based car insurance, and they are of particular interest to younger drivers who can pay monthly for their car insurance based on the number of miles they drive.

The Accident Alert service is an integral part of the Insure The Box telematics. Once a significant G-Force impact is registered, the black box in the car notes the time of day, if the vehicle is still moving, and the type of road on which the impact has been registered. In specific circumstances, the emergency services are called to the location if Insure The Box is unable to reach the policyholder by phone.

Insure The Box has dealt with over 100,000 Accident Alerts since its launch in 2009 and in 2016 emergency services were called on average 16 times a month in response to an Accident Alert.
