Can anyone tell me if you save much money on insurance if you have a tracker fitted to your car? I live in quite a high car crime area so wondered if that would bring it down?

If so are there only certain ones the insurance company accept?

    I would first check with your insurer if they offer a discount for a tracking device, and if so how much for each make / model of unit.

    For example, I have a Tracker fitted to my car, but insurer's will not offer me a discount due to the make/model / value of car I own.

    What car do you have?
    A Tracking device is a subscription based service, www.tracker.co.uk subs are £149 for one year or £399 for a one of subs payment.

    Other companies have similar pricings.

    You can ask but don't be surprised if they say no. What is much more likely is that if you have an expensive car you won't get insurance at all without having a tracking device fitted - this happened to me in the days when I was able to afford to buy a new Boxster (not an issue with my current Fiat Panda :)).
