Installing a tracker is becoming increasingly more common practice for vehicle owners. The reason that insurance companies typically request for a Thatcham approved tracker to be installed, instead of other aftermarket trackers available is due to the impressive recovery rate that Thatcham approved trackers have, with some Thatcham companies such as Tracker UK boasting a 96% recovery rate. All Thatcham approved trackers are installed covertly in different areas of a vehicle keeping thieves on their toes, unlike trackers that are installed at the factory which are all installed in the same position in the vehicle.

However, many do want to incentivise motorists, due to how highly effective these tracking devices are at both theft prevention and recovery.
If they haven't already made it clear, then it will definitely be worth speaking to your providers to see what they are willing to offer you in terms of a reduction.
Yes, unfortunately, GPS Jammers (or blockers) do work. Although jamming GPS/GSM signal is illegal, the devices thieves use are relatively inexpensive and readily available.
GPS Jammers are effective, as they produce a radio signal that is transmitted around the same frequency of the GPS satellites. This can block out and confuse the signals to the GPS tracker.
The good news is that the Tracker VHF anti-jamming devices do not emit a signal that can be detected and blocked by these techniques.
