Let’s face it, we all know that we should drive less and walk more to truly reduce our impact on the environment. But that’s not always possible. Sometimes the fastest way to get to your destination is the motorway. Like it or not, the police don’t take too kindly to people who decide to walk or cycle on the M62

But driving your little Fiat Panda to work every morning doesn’t have to mean you’re destroying the planet. That’s where Zixty’s short term car insurance policy comes in.  We want to help you reduce your carbon footprint and do our part to save the planet. 

That’s why we’ve created Zixty Miles, a free optional add-on that helps you become a more eco-conscious driver and offsets your journeys too. 

Read on to find out exactly how it works.

Zixty Miles: Get your eco score

You can enable Zixty Miles when you take out a policy with us. With Zixty Miles, you’ll be given an EcoScore – which rates your driving from 1-10 using data from your phone.

The Zixty app takes into account your speed, acceleration, braking, and cornering. If you speed, you’re likely using more fuel. Factors like rapid acceleration and hard braking also use more fuel overall. 

You get an EcoScore through Zixty Miles based on these factors because they’re key to how green your driving is. If you drive well, you’ll get a higher score. If your driving leaves something to be desired, you might get a lower EcoScore, but we’ll also provide plenty of recommendations to help you improve your score and offset even more carbon.

Don’t be worried – Zixty is not a black box policy, and if you enable Zixty Miles, we don’t monitor or measure your driving behaviour.

Carbon-offset your journey with Zixty

Here at Zixty, we’re not just about giving you an EcoScore and leaving you to it. We like to help you make an impact here and now. 

That’s why every time you take out a policy with us, we’ll plant a tree. But we’re not stopping there. We’ll also carbon offset your journeys up to 100 miles a day every day by planting trees. 

And, because we calculate your carbon offset amount based on a median score of 4-6, if you scored any higher, your journey was technically carbon negative. That’s right! You’re basically planting trees and helping save the planet on your morning commute.
