Green car insurance

Eco car insurance cover
Enable Zixty Miles in the app and we’ll measure your driving while you’re a customer, and then offset the CO2 we believe your journeys would have created. Drive more carefully, and we may offset more CO2 than was generated – potentially making your journeys carbon negative. It takes minutes to get on the road, and you could make a real difference.

Green car insurance FAQs
How do you calculate my driving CO2?
When you enable Zixty Miles for your policy, we measure your driving using your smartphone. From your vehicle registration we know the CO2 for your car, and we then offset the CO2 we calculate you would have generated – based on “median” driving. This takes your speed, braking, acceleration, and deceleration into account. Drive very carefully, and we may offset more CO2 than you created.
What makes Zixty temporary car insurance green?
We’re proud of the ways that our temporary car insurance helps people reduce their impact on the climate. It’s designed to support the sharing of cars – meaning fewer cars, and more efficient use of those cars. With Zixty Miles we carefully calculate the CO2 that your driving would have generated, and we offset this. In addition to this, we provide tailored feedback about your driving style so that you can drive in a more environmentally friendly way. By driving more carefully your driving can be carbon negative. Finally, our flexible product means that you only buy the cover you need – helping reduce un-necessary journeys.
Is it free to offset my driving?
We don’t charge more or less based on whether you choose to offset your driving CO2 or not. Zixty Miles is absolutely free, and so if you want to play a small part in reducing climate change, there’s no cost from us to you.
