Incentives work. That's what thousands of Discovery Insure clients are proving every day by driving well to earn fun rewards. We caught up with some of them.

Incentives work. Here's why
Research has shown how incentives can help to foster good behaviour by providing people with the initial motivation to practice healthy habits. Eventually, motivation becomes intrinsic, and good behaviours become more entrenched in how the person comes to view themselves (e.g. as a good driver, a healthy eater or a responsible dad).
Being able to accurately quantify and track progress is key to a successful incentive programme. For example, Discovery Insure measures your good driving each month by tallying up 'events', such as harsh braking and sharp turns, and then translating this data into a Vitality drive status. The higher your status, the better your rewards.
And with rewards like up to 50% back in fuel and Gautrain spend, 25% off UBER rides - as well as vouchers to use at vida e caffè, KAUAI, StopWash and Mugg & Bean for driving an event-free 100 kilometres - it's no wonder that people are motivated to improve their driving.
