How Ticker works

Ticker insurance works with a self-install box and an app. We post you the Ticker box, which you stick to your windscreen and pair with the Ticker app.

The box then sends us driving data via your phone. The Ticker app will let you know how you’re doing – and the better the driving, the sweeter the renewal.

Ticker FAQs

What data does the Ticker box collect?

The box sticks to your windscreen and collects data on journey time, GPS location, acceleration and G-force. This is sent to your phone via Bluetooth, then your Ticker app sends it to us. The Ticker app also gives you a view of how you’re driving and your mileage.

At the end of the policy year, we use the data when we’re working out your renewal quote.

What if I change my vehicle?

Unlike with traditional black box insurance, the Ticker box isn’t wired into your vehicle, so you can make the swap yourself.

Just let us know you want to change your vehicle so we can update your policy with the new details, then we’ll chat you through what you need to do.

What happens with the Ticker box at the end of the year?

The box has its own battery, which is designed to last for more than your policy year.

If you renew with us, the Ticker box can stay right where it is until we need to send you a new one. If you choose to leave Ticker, just unstick the box.

Please be kind to the environment and recycle your Ticker box – you can find guidance for recycling electrical items from your local council.
