free live-saving app offer from principal insurance

Principal Insurance is offering customers free subscriptions to Realrider’s crash-detection technology, which automatically alerts the emergency services when an accident occurs. The promotion was launched at the London motorcycle show and is open to any UK rider renewing or taking out a policy with the specialist insurance group. Subscriptions to the crash detection technology will be valid for three months with the Realrider app also including a range of free-to-use features such as route recording and bike data storage services.

Once a crash has been detected the Realrider app sets off an alarm. If the rider fails to deactivate that alarm within two minutes then the incident location and medical details, such as the rider’s blood type, are then automatically sent to the nearest ambulance control room.

Andrew Richardson, chief commercial officer of Realrider’s parent company, Realsafe Technologies, welcomed the deal with Principal, saying: “I’m delighted to be working in partnership with Principal which, as one of the UK’s fastest growing specialist insurance groups, already counts tens of thousands of bikers among its customers.

“It’s a great opportunity for riders to check out a technology which could potentially save their lives and demonstrates Principal’s own commitment to helping its policyholders stay safe on the road.”
