Using the latest telematics technology, the AbbeyBox drives down the cost of car insurance for young drivers by treating each driver as an individual. The AbbeyBox insurance product, which is a black box device containing a telematics system, is fitted to the windscreen of your car to monitor your individual driving style. It assesses your driving as a whole rather than isolated incidents (it is not an in-car speeding camera) and provides regular feedback to help you improve your driving skills.
An AbbeyBox (a black box device which uses telematics technology), is fitted to your car to collect data on how you drive.
The data is transmitted back via a secure network.
Your driving style is reviewed and feedback on how well you are driving is provided.
The AbbeyBox is very simple to fit and does not require professional installation, which saves time and money. All you have to do is visit your nearest Abbey branch and a member of the team will provide you with your own AbbeyBox and show you how to fit it.
Basically, you just remove the protection from the stickers on the back of the cradle and stick it to the inside of your windscreen. Right-hand driver's side is best to allow for ease of use when utilising the accident and claims assist function. You then place the telematics box into the cradle and plug the lead into a 12 volt socket (normally your cigarette lighter) to charge and you are ready to drive.
The AbbeyBox will let you know when it is fully charged, and when it needs recharged we will text you to let you know. Plus, because it is only the cradle that is attached to your car, if you change your car - no worries, you just take your box with you and we will send out a replacement cradle, so you are always on cover.
Abbey will supply you with monthly feedback on your driving to show how you have performed on the various road types. This feedback will allow you to understand where improvements could be made, helping you become a safer driver. Excessive speeding may result in your policy being cancelled. Your personal data will be kept safe by Abbey Insurance and only supplied to our underwriting partners, who are required to maintain its confidentiality.
