6 Ways the Dialdirect App can improve your driving

Motoring and Travel September 09, 2019

The Dialdirect Insurance App represents a revolution in driver awareness in South Africa. With nothing more than a smartphone, users have the power to make driving not only safer but also lucrative. With the Dialdirect Insurance App, responsible driving can earn you incredible rewards in cash. Every. Single. Month.


Drive Right 

Driving Less

Dialdirect now rewards you for driving less, and for not driving at all! Limiting the distance you drive decreases your exposure on the road which ultimately decreases your chances of having an accident. Dialdirect wants to keep you safe. That’s why we’ve introduced the distance reward. It includes a Drive Free Day reward for those days where you’ve stayed home and your car is parked safely.


Driving Well

Speeding, Braking and Acceleration

Aggressive speeding, unnecessarily braking hard and sudden acceleration don’t only take a toll on your tyres, brakes and engine; they also increase the chances you’ll end up in a collision. Dialdirect’s smartphone technology monitors these driving behaviours on your behalf. If you manage to keep your cool, your Drive Score will increase, and you’ll get cold, hard cash (every month) as your reward. Our recently updated app also has more info on speed limits than ever before. We’ll tell you no-no-no when you’re trying to go-go-go in a 60 km/h area.


Cellphone Usage

You’re on the road when bae’s face pops up on your phone. It’s tempting to answer, we know, but using cellphones while driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents today – so you decide to put it off until you get to the office. Good choice. You have once again maintained your Drive Score.


Night Driving

Friday night and your crew is up for a night on the town, but you know better than to offer to be the Designated Dave. Even stone-cold sober, you know that driving at night is a risky prospect, and your car would be better left safely tucked away at home. Since you’re all together, you suggest splitting an Uber – keeping your risk down, saving your car mileage, and enhancing your Overall Drive Score at the same time.


Better science, better driving

You’ve concentrated on driving less, easy braking, gentle pull-offs, and you’re in your driveway before night-time. You check the app and expect to see a perfect score, but uh-oh, you only see two stars. What went wrong? With our interactive map, you can see exactly where you’re driving right and where you may need some improvement.


The bottom line

Less risk to you and your precious wheels, more effortless trips, less time on the road and being rewarded back in cash every month – paid directly into your account. What’s not to love? If you’re ready to take the challenge, click here to learn more.
