Fuel saving myths busted

Fuel saving myths busted I remember those student days of free-wheeling down the hill to save money, which is a crazy thought in today’s times as R20 petrol used to fill your car up by at least a quarter tank which was ample petrol to get your party wagon from one destination to another. With […]

Monitoring driver behaviour – the risks vs the rewards

I was the most sceptical person when it came to Discovery Insure’s Vitality Drive monitoring system. I mean, why would I want my insurer to know exactly where I am all the time, how fast I drive, how harshly I corner, and how many taxis I beat off the mark once the robot has barely […]

Myth Busted: Car Insurance Premiums

This is a question I get asked often at review stage. “Ryan, my car has depreciated, why is my insurance premium still the same?” asks my client. My answer is always the same. Let’s say in 2011 you purchased a Toyota Fortuner for R406 300, and you were being charged a premium of R950 a […]
