Faith heard about ingenie from FirstCar Magazine, which her examiner gave her when she passed her driving test. She read an article about one ingenie customer whose premium was reduced by almost £1000 after a year for good driving.

After getting quotes of £2000 or more, Faith was interested in the possibility of earning discounts to make her insurance more affordable.

Without ingenie I wouldn't have been able to get insurance on the car I have as all of the quotes I received were £2000+. I even got one quote for £8000! So it has helped in the biggest way possible.

Faith, 19

What makes you want to check your feedback?

"I look at my feedback as soon as I get an email saying it is available, I get excited to see what my feedback is and whether it’s still all green (which it has been so far!). I often refer back to it when telling my friends how I'm doing too, as well as telling grandparents etc."

Has ingenie helped you become a better driver?

"As I have had all greens it has encouraged me to keep doing what I am doing, being cautious when approaching traffic lights, keeping within speed regulations and going slower around corners."

"It’s instantly recognisable how well you’re doing and the comments about your driving are really clear and concise. "

"Being able to drive without time restrictions means I get more experience of driving at night. It also enables me to gain experience driving alone."

Without ingenie I wouldn't be driving any car so I wouldn't be gaining experience and I would have had to have waited a few years to get insured - so the information and knowledge I have wouldn't have been as fresh.

Would you recommend ingenie to a friend?

"110%! I'm so impressed with the company, the initial quote was so much cheaper than other companies and the potential to earn some back is amazing!"

I got over £80 back in the first 6 months and I'm on track for a discount at my next review.

"I've already told a few people about ingenie but as I am the youngest person out of my friendship group they're already insured, although I know a few of them wished they knew about ingenie before they insured with their insurance company."
