Protect your car with O2
Introducing O2 Drive – competitively priced car insurance from a brand you already know and trust. Because we believe car insurance should offer you more.
With O2 Drive you’ll be able to manage your cover from your phone, through the O2 Drive app or the online Self Service Centre. You can use the app to check your driver score. Get driving tips. And even update your policy.
Need a service, repair or MOT? With Car Assistant we’ll help you find the right service for your car. Give you a choice of confirmed prices from garages in your area. And book it for you.
If you’ve already got an O2 mobile, your quote might even be lower because we know you. And by using the mobile signal from your phone, we can build up a pattern of your journeys and give you a price personal to you and your driving habits.
O2 Drive - Insuring you for who you are
We’ve got two different products for you to choose from. But whichever you go for, our comprehensive cover includes things like a courtesy car, up to £500 for personal possessions, our uninsured driver promise and more.

- O2 Drive for existing O2 customers
If you're already with O2 on a consumer tariff, we might be able to get you a better price on your car insurance because we know you. You'll be asked to enter your mobile number when you get a quote, so we'll know if you're already with O2.
Your quote is determined by factors like your postcode, car type, driving experience and no claims discount. But if you are already with O2 on a consumer tariff, things like how long you have been with O2, your payment history and your device will also be taken into account.
As well as this, by using the mobile signal from your O2 phone, we can see how, where and when you usually drive to build up a pattern of your journeys. And give you a price personal to you and your driving habits meaning we may be able to offer you savings too.
- O2 Drive app and your driving score
Once you've downloaded the app, sign in using your My O2 details. The app will then run in the background. If you switch your phone off you may need to open the app again to record your journeys. For O2 Drive – Box on Board, all journeys will be recorded automatically by your telematics box.
Your score is made up of individual scores for acceleration, awareness, speed and night time driving. The higher your overall score, the safer you're driving.
Your personal driving score for each journey will appear in the O2 Drive app with a breakdown of your score and tips on how to improve.
- Brexit and driving in the EU
In the event of a no deal Brexit, EU regulations mean that you’ll need a Green Card as proof of your insurance if you want to drive your car in the EU. Vehicles towing a trailer or caravan will also need a separate Green Card for the trailer or caravan.
If you’re an O2 Drive customer, whether you’re travelling to the EU before 31 January and returning after this date, or simply travelling to the EU after 31 January – please contact us 21 days before travel. Call us on 0330 018 0802 and we can issue you a Green Card.
You might also need an International Driving Permit (IDP) – see the Government’s advice. IDPs are available over the counter from the Post Office.
- Proof of no claims discount
Please email your proof of no claims discount to NCD@drive.o2.co.uk. Or post to O2 Drive, Unit 25, Tresham Road, Orton Southgate, Peterborough, PE2 6BU.
Make sure you include your policy number too. If you're not sure what to do, read our help article.
