With Tesco Bank Box Insurance, or ‘black box insurance’, the concept is simple; they install a box in your car and the device shows them how you drive.
When you take out this Box Insurance policy you'll get access to your own online portal so you can log in and check how you're doing. You'll be able to check lots of things on your portal like how many miles you've used.
You can choose to take out a 6,000, 8,000, or 10,000 mile policy depending on how much driving you do.
If run out of miles, don't panic. Just buy more miles online or on the phone.
If you continue to drive around without paying for more miles, Tesco will cancel your policy.

How telematics can help cut the cost of car insurance
Insurers see young drivers as a ‘higher risk’ group and push up the price of cover accordingly, but there are a few simple steps you can take to help keep costs down, even if you’re a teenager and you’ve just passed your test.
If you’re careful driver, a telematics policy offers an ideal way to cut the cost of cover as your premium price is based on your actual driving style, and not upon how other drivers in your age group perform. Some policies even offer discounts after just a few months.
Adding an older, named driver to your policy can also lower prices, as can cutting down on the number of miles you drive each month. Check out the video below for more cost-cutting tips.
