Will Google become Google Insurance?

As we know, Google is developing a driverless car – and has been for several years. Knowing that Google is slowly working its way into just about everything in our lives, we’re wondering … could Google be working on driverless car insurance for their driverless car? Not so fast, says Rory Joyce with CoverHound.com. Joyce has come up with three very strong reasons why Google will not be offering auto insurance in the future. Why?

Lloyds Insurance Report: Overcoming obstacles for driverless cars

As well as the technical obstacles that are quickly being eliminated by manufacturers of self-driving cars, there are a few potential barriers that will delay the deployment or growth of self-driving cars, just as the ‘Red-Flag Act’ did in the 19th Century. One such obstacle is Insurance Liability. Lloyd’s of London, the insurance underwriter, has recently produced a report about how autonomous car technology will affect the insurance industry.According to the report, insurance companies will have to create new methodologies on how...

 How do you get your customers to behave? It may not be by watching our every move and then squirreling away the data. For auto insurance providers, the current method calls for a monitor in your car to collect data on your actual behavior behind the wheel so you can earn a discount for safer driving. That’s the approach championed by the Progressive Insurance Snapshot program. Other insurers are now following suit with their own pay-as-you-drive products, including Allstate and State Farm. Progressive and others are still... [Lire la suite]

The Connected Car Will Affect Your Car Insurance

Car insurance rates and premiums have always been based on “the group” - age group, gender group, city group, vehicle type group, and so on. For years, insurance companies have been grouping drivers based on statistical and demographic data in an attempt to estimate the likelihood of any one driver getting into an accident. Which makes sense, if static data is all you have, but what if insurance companies could estimate the likelihood of any one driver getting into an accident by knowing exactly how that one driver drives? Switching... [Lire la suite]
