Australia’s First Embedded Telematics Insurance

Zurich Australia and Mercurien, an underwriting agency and the creator of the BetterDriver telematics system, have launched Zurich Mercurien Motor Fleet Insurance product – a motor fleet insurance policy with the BetterDriver telematics system embedded as part of the policy.



“BetterDriver™ is a best-in-class telematics offer developed for Australian conditions and it assists organizations and drivers in managing risk. BetterDriver™ measures the quality of driving across multiple parameters including braking, cornering, acceleration, speeding, length and time of journey and specific geo-locations. The outcome we seek is fewer injuries, fewer crashes, lower costs, less downtime, reduced fuel usage, and enhanced asset utilization. We are very excited to now be able to combine the insights from BetterDriver™ with an insurance offering, backed by leading motor fleet insurer Zurich.” – CEO of Mercurien, Michael Graham.


“As a leading motor fleet insurer we’ve seen first-hand the benefits of telematics in terms of driver safety, fleet maintenance and efficiency. We look forward to working with Mercurien and believe their offering will complement our broader motor proposition.” – Head of Commercial Insurance, Zurich General Insurance Australia & New Zealand, Giles Crowley.
