The Best Car Trackers for Your Mini

12 Nov 2021 12:07:02

Small but mighty, your Mini is your pride and joy, likely the car that first captured your heart as a youngster and that you’ve dreamed of owning ever since. Ensure your Mini has the best protection by installing a Thatcham approved car tracker, so you can enjoy the experience of owning a Mini, whilst knowing you’re well protected against theft.

There’s Something Special About a Mini

Whilst they may not be the most expensive car out there, there is certainly still a prestige that comes with owning a Mini. There’s something about owning a Mini that is simply more sentimental than owning another car. Maybe it’s some sort of subconscious patriotism from seeing the Mini paraded with the Union Jack and celebrated as an iconic British car - well, if we skirt over the fact that it is now owned by BMW. Or maybe it’s from spending our childhoods watching the bumbling Mr Bean getting in and out of his yellow Mini, causing mayhem wherever he goes. Whatever it is, there’s no denying that there’s just something special about a Mini, which means it deserves the best protection going.

Protect Your Mini Against Theft

Investing in a Thatcham approved car tracker will give you peace of mind to know that, should a thief target your Mini, you’re protected and have the best chance of recovering your car. It could also potentially lower your insurance costs, as insurers know that car trackers provide the best protection for your car. This could make it a particularly good investment if you live in an area with a high crime rate.

Below we’ll list some of our favourite car trackers, so you can find one which suits your budget and needs.
