Admiral broadens partnership with Cambridge Mobile Telematics to launch LittleBox Pod for UK drivers
LittleBox Pod helps drivers save money and drive safer
Cambridge, MA, & Cardiff, UK, March 21, 2023 — Admiral, a leading car insurance provider in the UK, has extended its partnership with Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT), the world’s largest telematics service provider, to launch LittleBox Pod, a new telematics offering that can lower insurance prices for drivers of all ages. The program is available now for UK drivers on price comparison websites.
“We’ve built a fantastic range of products and services that deliver great value for our customers, and Admiral LittleBox Pod, built in partnership with Cambridge Mobile Telematics, is a fantastic addition to our offering. I’m excited to see it help telematics policies become more interactive for our customers, by sharing safety driving tips on the app and helping more people save on their motor insurance with us!” said Paul Taylor, Head of Telematics at Admiral.
The Pod works in unison with the Admiral app to give drivers feedback on each trip and provides a score that indicates their driving safety. Drivers can follow their progress in the app and improve their score, which can reduce insurance premiums.
“With LittleBox Pod, Admiral is taking advantage of changing market dynamics to provide even more value to its customers,” said David Morse, CMT’s Chief Customer Officer. “UBI and connected insurance are no longer just about young drivers in the UK. Drivers of all ages are interested in the benefits of safe driving programs like LittleBox Pod. In fact, over 60% of UK drivers say they would join a UBI program if offered by their insurer. We’re excited to expand our relationship with Admiral and help them make even more drivers safer on the road.”
LittleBox Pod makes it quick and easy for customers to enroll in the program. Admiral sends the LittleBox Pod in the post, customers simply stick the device to their windscreen and activate the program in the app. Unlike other hardware-based telematics programs, LittleBox Pod doesn’t need professional installation, ensuring a convenient product for customers.
