Enjoy up to a 30% discount* with dash cam insurance without needing a black box!
For young drivers, it can be hard to find cheap car insurance. However, at MyFirstUK, we have teamed up with Nextbase Dash Cams and Halfords so that you can save up to 30% on your next car insurance policy.
Our dashcam car insurance policy includes a Nextbase 312GW Dash Cam within the plan. With free installation at Halfords, you can enjoy cheaper car insurance without requiring a black box. It is the ideal discount alternative to having every drive tracked by a black box monitor.
A dashcam not only helps you to save you money on your car insurance policy, but it can also be vital in the event of a claim. While you may feel under pressure with the constant monitoring of a black box, our dash cam policy still offers a discount without tracking your driving. Instead, the dashboard camera sits in your car and will record any incidents that can help you in the event of a claim on your insurance.
We think our dashcam insurance is a no-brainer for young drivers who want to save vital cash on their car insurance policy. What’s more, with a dash cam bundle included in the policy alongside free installation at Halfords, it couldn’t be easier!
*The saving made is dependent on a person’s individual circumstances. The Dash Cam policy can be up to 30% cheaper than standard non-Dash Cam policies provided by other insurance providers.
What Is Dash Cam Car Insurance?
In recent years, there have been lots of technologies introduced to help lower insurance premiums. One popular choice is telematics or black box insurance. Telematics insurance records aspects of driving, including speed, braking habits and cornering. However, some people do not feel comfortable driving while their driving style continually monitored, yet they still want to enjoy savings.
Another way motorists can enjoy savings on their car insurance is through dashcam insurance. Dashboard cameras, also known as dashcams do not monitor driving but instead record the activity on the road. Dashboard cameras can be particularly useful in an incident. This is because the footage will often show which driver was at fault for the incident. This saves drivers a lot of time, money and stress.
While the fact you can show that incidents are not your fault can save money, MyFirstUK also offers discounted insurance for their dashcam policies. A study by Nextbase found that half of those surveyed think that driving standards would improve if dashcams were widely fitted. Furthermore, with dash cams, motorists can enjoy more responsible driving and subsequently lower premiums.
Research has also found that 40% of motorists would feel safer if they were driving with a dashcam on board. This is because dash cams can help motorists to take action against careless drivers and dangerous road activities. Dashcams discourage inconsiderate driving by making motorists more accountable. Hopefully, with more dash cams on the road through dash cam insurance, it will make the roads a safer place to be.

Why You Should Use Dashboard Camera
1. Help for contested traffic violations
If you have been penalised for a traffic violation for an offence you didn’t commit, you can use the evidence stored on your dashcam as evidence to contest an unwarranted ticket.
2. Record keeping
If a traffic accident or incident occurs, our adrenaline kicks in, and we can often have very different memories of what happened. Furthermore, other people will have different descriptions of the event. With dashcam footage, it provides the perfect record for what happened when memories are hazy, or the accounts contradict each other.
3. Fight fraud
Sadly, some people claim on insurance fraudulently; this is common with ‘cash for crash’ scams. Having a dash cam can help to provide evidence against people trying to cheat the system and claim for a staged accident.
4. Improve your driving
Many people believe having a dash cam up and running will make people more aware of their driving style. Subsequently, people will adjust their driving to keep a good driving record. Improving your driving will help to lower your premiums too, so it is win-win!
5. Capture the unexpected
When driving, the most unexpected things can happen that we cannot quite believe ourselves. With a dashcam, you can replay these moments and check whether your eyes were deceiving you.
