Green car insurance

Green car insurance is designed with people who need to insure a car for a short term, but who care about the environment. If you need to borrow a car, or have bought a car and need to get it home, you can offset your driving CO2 with Zixty Miles for free!

We CO2 offset every policy for free

We carbon offset every Zixty policy for free as a matter of course. You don’t need to do anything – just buy a policy on the web, or in the app. We then work with Eden Reforestation on your behalf.

You can CO2 offset your miles for free

Once you’re a Zixty customer, if you enable Zixty Miles in the app, we will CO2 offset up to 100 miles of driving every day that you’re a customer. 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

An eco policy – not a black-box policy

We don’t monitor or measure your driving for any reason other than to calculate your driving CO2 emissions. We’re not a black-box/ telematics policy, and Zixty Miles is absolutely free.

We hope you’ll see and believe that choosing Zixty for your eco car insurance can make a small difference. 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.

How do you carbon offset my driving?

We work with Eden Reforestation who plant trees on our behalf. They work with local communities to restore forests on a massive scale, creating jobs, protecting ecosystems, and helping mitigate climate change. Get a quote online now and download the Zixty app to buy green car insurance today.
