Telematics Usage-based Insurance

  • Insurance telematics, also known as usage-based insurance (UBI) or pay-as-you-drive, represents a shift in how insurance is administered and how premiums are calculated.

Canadian insurance companies are learning from the experiences of their counterparts in the United States and Europe.
