What is the Best Car Tracker for Insurance?
Fitting an insurance approved tracker in your vehicle is a great way to reduce the cost of your insurance policy!
Insurance providers often reward people that are proactive in the security of their vehicle and having a tracker installed shows just that. Insurance approved vehicle tracking systems are the most effective way of securing your car.
In fact, due to the rise in vehicle theft, many insurance providers won’t insure your vehicle for theft at all, unless a categorised tracking device has been installed. This is simply because they really do work as a method of security! Thatcham approved trackers are designed to deter thieves and ensure quick and effective vehicle recovery if your vehicle is stolen.
It’s always best to discuss their requirements with your provider to see if there is a particular Thatcham category tracker that they favour. However, generally, Thatcham category S5 and S7 tracking systems are guaranteed to be accepted by most insurance providers.
We’re going to run through a couple of our recommendations, their main features and how they lower your insurance.
The Meta S5 Deadlock
The Meta S5 Deadlock is considered to be one of the best vehicle tracking devices on the market. It has an S5 Thatcham accreditation and additional immobilisation security, so as far as trackers go, the Meta S5 Deadlock has everything you could ever want! Including:
Automatic immobilisation - The immobilisation is controlled by the owner using ID tags, meaning that nobody else can drive the vehicle without their permission.
Deadlock immobilisation - controlled by the mobile app or web & can be integrated with your car's alarm, this feature stops your car from moving when you turn it on.
European wide coverage, live tracking, journey history & is waterproof.
This tracker offers the ultimate protection for your vehicle in multiple ways, so it’s not hard to see why it’s favoured by insurance providers. Plus it’s reasonably priced!
Trackerfit offers nationwide installation of the Meta S5 Deadlock, fitted by a Meta track approved engineer.
Meta Track S5 VTS
The Meta Track S5 is a sophisticated tracker that’s great value for money and suitable for all vehicle types. It comes with two driver recognition tags, live tracking, 24/7 control room monitoring, instant alerts to your phone and an optional add on for remote immobilisation - just to name a few!
In other words, it comes with all the features that your insurance provider will be looking for. Although it doesn’t include as many safety features as the Meta S5 Deadlock, this tracker will still make a significant impact on the security of your car and that’s what insurance providers are looking for.
SmarTrack Reco S7
If you’re looking for an insurance approved tracker that has a lower price tag, the SmarTrack Reco S7 is a good option. It holds an S7 Thatcham approval which is the second-highest level of accreditation.
Along with UK & European tracking 24/7, this tracker comes with multi-tracking technologies for locating in the event of theft when GPS is compromised.
Having the tracker installed will make your car safer, which is all insurance providers are really looking for to reduce your premium price.
