Carrot Car Insurance @

Carrot Car InsuranceCarrot Insurance was launched by Ed Rochfort and Nick Corrie back in 2012. Over the years, this has become one of the UK’s most recognisable black box companies. They have always been popular for the rewards that they pay out to their customers. At the time of this posting they were for instance handing out free Papa John’s pizza. The service promoted through is available to drivers between the ages of 17 and 30. There are now 2 such products offered by them. The first of which is called New Driver for those with less than 2 years experience on the roads. For this they use an “I-Box” that was developed in-house.

This offers up to 15% of the annual premium returned in cash rewards, paid on to Carrot’s pre-paid MasterCard. Up to 5% cashback is also provided at select high street retailers. Then there is Better Driver that just requires the installation of their app on your smartphone. This links via Bluetooth or their free Wingman Bluetooth dongle. Here you can earn weekly treats such as cinema tickets, music downloads, pizza etc. Tech is at the heart of this company with the founders being the team behind the Trak Global Group. Their telematics technology is used by the likes of Collingwood, Only Young Drivers and RSA’s More Than. Then there are key automotive brands with Volkswagen being of note.

There are 4 insurers attached to Carrot’s panel that includes Ageas, Alpha, Markerstudy and Zurich. These partners help to deliver cheap quotes when applying direct or on comparison sites. From our research, the only telematics firm to quote cheaper was Ingenie. Obviously, the rewards are a further bonus here. There is a Carrot login at that is specific to New Driver. This policy can also be monitored by their app. Better Driver that is handed to those with 2 years+ experience can only be monitored by phone. Customers can reach their advisors on the number of 0333 355 1725. Their opening hours are Monday to Friday (8.30am to 6pm) and Saturday (9am to 1pm).
