COMPARE THATCHAM APPROVED TRACKERS

It’s very possible that you’ve just had it sprung on you by your insurance providers that you need to organise a Thatcham approved tracker installation for your new vehicle (or when renewing an existing insurance policy).

As the most trusted nationwide Thatcham approved tracker installers we ensure a quick, stress-free process, meaning you will be fully insured and secured within the next few days.

But let's quickly explain more below as to why you actually need a Thatcham approved tracker installer and guide you on the most suitable for your vehicle and insurance provider.Or click a button to take you to the category info.

 
 

 

What is a Thatcham Approved Tracker?

Thatcham Research is the organisation overseeing the testing and categorisation of vehicle security products. Their stringent, meticulous testing is designed to assess the effectiveness of the security and safety of the products. As long as the product meets the exact criteria and high standard of quality, they will receive a Thatcham Security Certification.

Therefore, due to a combination of escalating vehicle theft, and the high level of quality and the very impressive recovery success rate of Thatcham approved trackers, insurance providers are now insisting that motorists install these particular tracking devices.

This is likely to be why you are now being asked to install a Thatcham approved tracking device, even though you may not have ever been asked to in the past. 

 

Which Is The Best Thatcham Approved Tracker For Me?

Now that you know why it is a standard requirement, the next question you are probably thinking is 'which is the best Thatcham Approved Tracker for me?' 
There are two main categories of Car Insurance Trackers - S5 and S7. In a nutshell, S7 trackers are the cheapest Thatcham approved vehicle tracking device. S5 Trackers are the same as S7, but with the addition of an extra Automatic Driver Recognition System (ADR recognises you are the authorised driver. If anyone else moves your vehicle, it triggers an instant alert).
 
If your insurance provider has NOT stipulated a category, then you are free to choose which category you prefer. However, if they have stipulated an S5 tracker, then you MUST meet this requirement. Failing to do so will most likely invalidate your insurance policy in the event of theft.
The differences between the categories are quite straightforward, however, there are multiple brands and may have slightly different additional optional features, and pricing.
You can see a chart of the different Thatcham approved tracking device brands and categories below.
