Carol is an interactive, ‘one-stop-shop’ car management service that will allow users to purchase insurance, schedule servicing and MOTs, track and make vehicle tax payments and analyse their driving via real-time telematics – all through a single, online platform.
A new platform is currently under development that is aimed at car owners who want to streamline their ownership and gain a deeper understanding of their motoring costs. Carol is an interactive car management service that will allow users to purchase insurance, schedule servicing and MOTs, track and make vehicle tax payments and analyse their driving in real time, all through a single, online platform. It is anticipated that Carol will be launched later in 2018.
By signing up for Carol, users will be able to take advantage of ‘bundle deals’, opting for insurance policies and car servicing packages tailored to their needs. They will also benefit from savings in time, money and hassle, as Carol will liaise directly with the insurance companies and service providers on their behalf. As the Carol community grows, the platform will also evolve to include aspects such as car purchasing and financing, hiring and peer-to-peer sharing.
An additional benefit available when users sign up to Carol will be a free telematics service, allowing people to track their driving habits on their phone. Data from this service can be used to recommend telematics insurance policies to suitable drivers, which could further reduce insurance costs.
Carol co-founder, Ben Lumelsky, says of the new platform: “We’re passionate about technology and want to use it to improve the lives of drivers. We’ve seen how interactive, technologically advanced platforms and online services have completely transformed the routine logistics for industries such as banking and telecoms and we are sure that our new service will do exactly the same for motorists.
“So many drivers today don’t have the time or inclination to keep track of the different responsibilities that come with owning a vehicle. We believe Carol will not only remove much of this administrative burden, but also offer excellent insurance and servicing deals and valuable reassurance through a trustworthy, customer-focused service that the motor industry is sorely missing.”
