Insurance Approved Vehicle Tracker Systems
Unfortunately, vehicle theft has been increasing consistently over the last 6 years.
This may seem hard to believe, considering car security has never been as advanced as it has now.
However, organised car thief gangs work just as hard to find ways to counteract any factory-fitted security.
Sadly, now thieves have found a way to beat the keyless car entry/start with ‘Relay Attacks', it now leaves countless vehicles and their owners extremely vulnerable.
The good news is that an insurance approved vehicle tracker system both protects your vehicle against these theft techniques, and may also get you a discount in the cost of your car insurance policy

GPS Trackers come in all different shapes, sizes and costs. It’s fair to say that insurance approved vehicle trackers are at the higher end of the spectrum when it comes to price. This is largely down to the additional security features that are included with them and also down to the installation, they are all covertly installed and well-hidden to ensure that a thief isn’t able to find it easily when stripping back parts of the vehicle. For an entry level insurance approved tracker you are looking at around £150.00 for the tracker and installation. For trackers with additional security features, such as driver recognition and remote immobilisation you will be looking at around £595.00 Installed.
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.
There are various factors that determine whether installing a car tracker will lead to a direct reduction in your insurance policy. Typically if your vehicle is valued over around £20,000 then your insurance company are likely to honour a reduction in your policy, however this is subjective to the insurance underwriter. Of course it’s in their own interest to protect their investment when insuring you and with the proven theft recovery rates that Thatcham approved trackers have, you will find that the vast majority insurers will side to offering you the discount and in some cases insisting that they are mandatory for you to be insured for theft. Since the staggering increase in vehicle relay thefts – it isn’t just down to the value of the vehicle, if you have a certain model of vehicle such as a Range Rover, regardless of whether it’s over £20,00 or not insurance companies are stipulating that this is a mandatory requirement to obtain your policy.
