ARAG partners up with telematics insurance provider Insurethebox

ARAG has agreed a deal with specialist insurer Insurethebox to provide legal cover for around 250,000 of their policyholders.

As part of the deal, mandatory legal expenses insurance will now be incorporated in the standard car policy for Insurethebox customers. The policy also has the option of being enhanced with replacement vehicle cover for at fault, fire and theft claims together with car cloning cover, motor prosecution defence and legal services assistance such as legal, tax and counselling helplines.

Insurethebox policyholders agree to have their driving monitored by a telematics device installed in their vehicle.

“Those who have opted for safer driving rewards may still become involved in accidents through their own inexperience”, said David Haynes, head of underwriting & marketing at ARAG.

“We can provide the benefits that many will not even know they need until such time as they have a claim. Adding all these safeguards early in their driving experience complements a reward-based approach to insurance and hopefully influences their buying choices for the future”.
