APP THAT SAVES MONEY. AND MAYBE SOME LIVES

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - NEWS -

In­sur­ance firm Dialdirect has launched an app that in­tends to not only make our roads safer and pro­vide mean­ing­ful in­sights into our unique driver be­hav­iour, but also to re­ward safe driv­ers with up to 75% of their pre­mi­ums back in cash.

The Gaut­eng Roads and Trans­port De­part­ments say that 77.5% of fa­tal crashes and 89.1% of ma­jor crashes can be at­trib­uted to hu­man fac­tors. Us­ing a cell­phone while driv­ing con­trib­utes to about 25% of ac­ci­dents in South Africa.

The new app takes into ac­count cell­phone use while driv­ing, brak­ing, ac­cel­er­a­tion, night-time driv­ing, speed­ing, route risk in­dex and dis­tance.

Dialdirect says cus­tomers can boost their monthly earn­ings by in­sur­ing right… like adding home con­tents cover and build­ings cover to their poli­cies, and by com­plet­ing ad­di­tional ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing a ve­hi­cle safety check, an eye test and con­firm­ing their pol­icy details. Af­ter four years of claim-free, un­in­ter­rupted cover, cus­tomers can get a fur­ther 25% of all their pre­mi­ums back.

You can find the app in your smart­phone or tablet’s app store.
