Earn Carrot Points for being a safe driver and then exchange them for high street vouchers

Carrot Card

With Carrot, it literally pays to drive safely - in fact, you can earn some of your annual premium back in rewards for being safe and responsible at the wheel.

Simply keep your Driving Style Score ‘in the green’ on the dial on your personal Carrot dashboard and each week you'll have chance to earn and 'bank' Carrot Points.

Each Carrot Point is worth 1p, and the amount of points you earn each week will depend on how well you drive. For example if you earn 250 points you'll be able to exchange it for £2.50 worth of high street vouchers*.

With a New Driver by Carrot policy, there are no unexpected increases to the cost of your insurance during the policy year. Here at Carrot we are all about safe driving so your policy will be at risk of cancellation if you consistently record negative driving scores. Providing your details remain the same, the cost of your insurance will stay exactly at the price your paid when you took out your policy.

When you buy a New Driver by Carrot policy, we'll ask you to tell us how many miles you expect to cover during your policy year. But if at a later date you find that you need to cover more miles than you originally planned to when you bought your policy, you can always buy Top-Up Miles from us. It's a bit like topping up the credit on your mobile phone.

Just give us a call and we'll quote you a price for the additional miles that you need, based on your individual Driving Style Score – less pay as you go, more pay how you drive. It's another example of how we're always looking to give young drivers the fairest deal possible.
