Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay News | Latest Industry News

SINGAPORE — A pioneering insurance company, DirectAsia.com (http://www.directasia.com/ ), is leading the way by launching the first scheme to reward customers who install a camera in their car.


Online insurer DirectAsia.com (http://www.directasia.com/ ) will offer its customers a reduced premium if they equip their car with a special camera that takes continual footage of their journey. In the event of an accident, the recorded evidence will enable insurers to settle claims fast and fairly.


Nicolas Faquet, Principal Officer of DirectAsia.com (http://www.directasia.com/ ), said: “This will protect the good driver from having to share liability when there is not sufficient evidence to determine who is at fault at the time of the accident.”


Customers will also get a heavily discounted price on the VisionDrive(TM) Black Box camera which features a shock sensor, GPS sensor, and Video Analyzer.


The launch of this new program is part of DirectAsia.com (http://www.directasia.com/ ) ‘s mission to encourage and reward safe driving in Singapore. DirectAsia.com (http://www.directasia.com/ ) was the first insurer in town to offer a best price guarantee to safe drivers.
