Usage-based insurance refers to a type of auto insurance, which utilizes the in-vehicle communication systems to keep a track of driving behavior and mileage. Use of telematics systems gives precise and accurate feedback of the driving patterns and safety practices of the driver. Telematics refers to a method of vehicle monitoring, which combines on-board diagnostics with the GPS system to track behavior of the vehicle. Such a technology enables the insurance companies to alter the insurance cost based on the risk thus estimated.
Allstate Insurance Company, State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, UnipolSai Assicurazioni S.p.A, Insure The Box Limited, Intelligent Mechatronic Systems Inc, and Allianz SE are some of the companies dominating the global usage-based insurance market.
