Car insurance, "Pay As You Drive"™ by Norwich Union UK

Hi people, as a young driver with a performance car, I agreed to do a survey with my insurance company.

Its pay as you drive and from my experiance it basicly sucked!

BUT it may benifit you people more then it did me.

There is off peak and peak charges and yes you have satalite equipment installed in your car so they probley know when you speed.

What do you guys think?

It all seems a bit neo-nazi to me and therefore I voted 'No'. Good idea with the poll, maybe send the results to NU as well.

Best avoided! NU tell you your average speed with each monthly bill. There is every likelihood of 'function creep' on a grand scale

'What speed were you driving when you claim the other car pulled out in front of you? We couldn't possibly pay out because you were speeding at the time'

There is also a rather unhealthy connection between Norwich Union, their owners Aviva, the RAC, who fit the trackers and New Labour.

Ive voted no, not because it would cost more, but I would not want big brother watching over me.

How do they tell when someone else who has their own insurance drives it?
(like a garage etc :runaway: )

I voted no anyway.

I've been fitting these for Norwich Union and Royal Bank of Scotland. Because they're aimed at younger drivers, they're mainly fitted to chav mobi es. Customers seem to be quite happy with them for now !

my dad has this type of insurance on his modified Corvette Z06. he mostly drives it on weekends and trips down to the states and stuff. he saves a lot of cash but its done through a private broker.

These schemes are always marketed as a way of saving you money, but think about the position you're putting yourself in having a tracking device in your car.

No chance.
