DS SimplyDrive Telematics is a revolutionary new way for younger or new drivers can drive a car on SimplyDrive.
What is included in the DS SimplyDrive monthly payment?
You will receive:
A brand new DS model
3 Year’s fully Comprehensive Car Insurance
3 Year’s Routine Servicing
3 Year’s Warranty (for peace of mind)
3 Year’s road tax (if applicable)
3 Year’s Payment Waiver
all for: one monthly fee.
The payments must be staggeringly high!
Actually no! In fact, you’d be surprised to hear that our quotations (whilst higher than a normal SimplyDrive) are often much lower than you would expect and in some cases, lower than standalone insurance quotes. Whilst young and new drivers (who have recently passed their test) are often apprehensive about insurance quotes through their comparison site of choice, with SimplyDrive Telematics, there’s no need to be.
How Can Charters DS offer SimplyDrive Telematics so cheaply?
This is thanks to the clever Telematics Black Box technology fitted to your car. Once the finance agreement has been signed, a Telematics box will be sent to your home. It is an extremely simple device to setup (“plug and play”). This device monitors your driving speed, harsh braking, acceleration and more. Your driving will be continuously scored out of 100 and can be checked via a useful app.
What does this mean for parents of young drivers?
If you’re looking for the safest car for your son/daughter to drive, you’ll find it in DS Telematics. The system ensures that your child is driving safely (something we are all concerned about). Each DS model is rated 5 Stars by EuroNCAP and with Telematics fitted, you can be sure that they’ll be in safe hands.
Does this mean I have to drive safely?
What is the annual four strike rule?
The Telematics system rates your driving out of 100. For every infraction of the law such as a jumped traffic light or excessive speeding, you’ll receive a strike. Receive four of these in a year and your insurance will be cancelled.
Are the Prices in your SimplyDrive Telematics offers accurate?
Although the prices displayed in our offers section are representative of an average 18 year old driver with zero no claims discount, every SimplyDrive Telematics quote is different. Each monthly price is based upon your individual circumstances such as home location, job title, where the vehicle is kept at night. For a more accurate quote, we urge you to give us a call. Just think of us, the next time you go looking for your first car insurance: you may just find that driving a brand new DS3 away from our dealership on Telematics is cheaper than your next quotation from that website obsessed with Meerkats…or opera singers!
Are all vehicles on offer with DS SimplyDrive Telematics?
Currently there is only one DS model available on SimplyDrive Telematics. Thankfully it’s our most popular one: DS 3
Do I need “no claims discount”?
No! As long as you are 18 or above, you can apply for DS SimplyDrive Telematics. If you have No Claims Discount, you can add it to your policy (which is likely to reduce your payments) but if you don’t: then you can still drive away a new DS 3 from Charters DS on SimplyDrive Telematics.
