Allstate Canada Introduces Drivewise
Allstate Canada has introduced its Drivewise® app that uses telematics technology to provide auto insurance customers with insights into their driving habits so they can improve and become safer drivers.
Drivewise is a personalized app that allows drivers to learn more about their own driving habits after the completion of each trip, it also gives them to opportunity to demonstrate their safe driving behaviors for the chance to save up to 30% on their auto insurance. Participants in the Drivewise program will not experience an increase in their premium as a result of participating in the program.
“Every insurance company has customers who ask for lower rates because they say they are safer drivers . The Drivewise app, through telematics technology, gives Allstate Canada customers the power to showcase exactly that, with the opportunity to save money as a result. Our hope is that participants will feel empowered and encouraged to change their behaviours and become even better drivers as they gain awareness of their habits and adopt safer practices behind the wheel.” – Director, Product Development and Connected Consumer, Allstate Insurance Company of Canada, Glen King.
The Drivewise app is available to Allstate auto insurance customers in Ontario, Alberta, and Nova Scotia and will be rolling out in Quebec this summer. Those interested in trying the app can download the TESTDrivewise version to track their driving habits for five trips and receive feedback to improve their driving skills, in addition to an automatic 5% discount for current customers. TESTDrivewise is free to download and available to all drivers in participating provinces, even if they aren’t Allstate customers.
