ScorpionTrack S7 ALS

In the world of car ownership, saving money is often a key factor, especially in these difficult economic times.

From fuel efficiency to maintenance costs, from styling to security, every aspect of vehicle ownership demands puts a drain on the wallet. One often overlooked area where substantial savings can be achieved is car insurance.

In the UK, where insurance premiums are mandatory but can also be pretty steep, finding ways to reduce these costs is essential.

Fortunately, advancements in technology have paved the way for innovative solutions, such as car trackers, which not only enhance security but also offer potential discounts on insurance premiums.

Let’s delve into the world of car trackers and explore some of the best options available in the UK market to help you drive down your insurance costs.

Understanding Car Trackers and Insurance Savings

Car trackers, also known as telematics devices, are sophisticated gadgets that utilise GPS technology to monitor and track the location, movement and sometimes even the behaviour of a vehicle.

Insurance companies have increasingly embraced the use of these devices to offer usage-based insurance (UBI) policies. These policies allow insurers to assess a driver’s risk profile more accurately by monitoring their driving habits, such as speed, braking and mileage.

For responsible drivers, this presents an opportunity to prove their low-risk status and consequently secure lower insurance premiums.

By installing a car tracker and agreeing to share driving data with their insurer, drivers can potentially save hundreds of pounds annually on their insurance premiums.

With the UK’s insurance costs notoriously high, such savings can significantly affect household budgets, but which trackers really help reduce those premiums? Let’s take a look at three of the best.

Benefits of Car Trackers Beyond Insurance Savings

While the potential for insurance savings is undoubtedly appealing, car trackers offer additional benefits, beyond the peace of mind they offer, that enhance the overall driving experience:

  • Enhanced Security: Many car trackers come equipped with features such as real-time GPS tracking and geofencing, which can help locate and recover stolen vehicles quickly.
  • Improved Driving Habits: By monitoring driving behaviour, car trackers encourage safer driving habits, reducing the risk of accidents and promoting road safety.
  • Fleet Management: For businesses with vehicle fleets, car trackers provide valuable insights into driver behaviour, fuel efficiency and maintenance schedules, helping to optimise operations and reduce costs.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that their vehicle is equipped with a tracking device can provide drivers with peace of mind, especially in high-theft areas or when lending their car to others.

1. ScorpionTrack S5 VTS

If you’re looking for a tracker that ticks all the boxes in terms of features and will also please your insurance company, then look no further than the S5 VTS from ScorpionTrack.

With the rise of increasingly elaborate workarounds to counteract the protections trackers offer, the S5 VTS has a few tricks up its sleeve.

It boasts a myriad of features to help prevent most modern theft methods such as key theft, key cloning and OBD hacking. If you’re looking for a tracker that has it all, including a way to reduce your premiums, this is it.

2. Meta Trak S5 VTS

One of the most cost-effective S5 trackers you can buy, it also meets Thatcham’s strict CAT-5 and S5 criteria meaning it’s insurance-approved and perfect to secure your vehicle.

Approved by Škoda, Seat and Volkswagen, this powerhouse of a tracker gives you access to their 24/7 Control Centre via its dedicated app and puts a whole host of notifications and alerts right in the palm of your hand.

Being an S5-rated tracker, you also get Driver ID tags which give you another level of protection. These small pieces of cutting-edge tech mean that, if they’re not in close proximity to the vehicle, it won’t start and even if it does move, both the control centre and you (vai the app) will get instant notifications.

There are few trackers but than this one, but it’s not the only one that can help reduce your premiums.

3. ScorpionTrack S7 ALS

Not only is the ScorpionTrack S5 VTS one of the best trackers you can buy right now, especially if you’re looking to reduce your insurance premiums, but it’s also one of the most cost-effective.

As you would expect from a company like ScorpionTrack, the S7 comes with a host of features to help you keep your car secure (something your insurance company will love) but, if you manage a fleet, then it also includes a host of advanced features that you’ll love to manage things like journey history, multi-vehicle tracking and geofencing.

Not only that, like it’s big brother above, it’s also manufactured in the UK to the Police Preferred Specification so you can be sure you’re getting an amazing system that both you and your insurer will love.

Keep Your Insurance Premium Down!

Car insurance premiums, especially in the UK, can be a significant financial burden, so finding ways to reduce costs is crucial.

Car trackers like those mentioned above, whilst not an exhaustive list, all offer a compelling solution by not only enhancing security but also potentially lowering your insurance premiums through usage-based insurance policies.

By monitoring driving behaviour and rewarding safe drivers, these devices empower motorists to take control of their insurance costs and drive more responsibly.

With an even wider range of options available on our website, drivers have the opportunity to choose the best car tracker that suits their needs and budget, ultimately leading to greater savings and peace of mind on the road.

We know what it’s like. Christmas and the New Year is a distant memory but here we are. It might feel like the 76th of January, money is tight, but you still need to keep everything moving along.

With the rise of car crime across the UK, it’s easy to think it won’t happen to you, but no one is safe so it pays to be secure, even when the purse strings are tightening.

With the economic downturn showing no sign of an uptick, we wanted to put together a list of the best cheap car trackers and security systems available.

As with any cross-section of products you can buy, they’ll range from the ‘cheap and cheerful’ at one end of the scale, to the ‘Rolls Royce’ premium brand at the other. Car trackers are no different, but ‘cheap’ doesn’t have to mean an empty box with no features, there are some amazing products you can get from us without breaking the bank, so let’s take a look at some of them.

SmarTrack Reco S7

The Reco S7 from SmarTrack is our most affordable tracker. It’s one of the latest products from SmarTrack aimed at the ‘hot hatch’ market or those popular cars that are often stolen for parts or by opportunities thieves just looking for a night of madness.

Whilst its DNA might be geared towards those pocket rockets, because it’s so cost-effective, it also works incredibly well protecting caravans and is approved by many insurers, saving you money on your premium.

Don’t think that at this price point, you’re not getting a tracker that meets the high bar set by the industry-leading security team at Thatcham.

Not only is it Thatcham-approved, but it’s also connected to the Global Telemetrics Control Centre 24/7 giving you complete peace of mind.

You also get warnings for battery disconnection and low battery and it also comes with its own backup battery should the device be disconnected from the main car’s battery. All of these are managed by its dedicated smartphone app. It’s hard to get a better tracker for this price!

ScorpionTrack S7 ALS

For the same price as the SmarTrack system above, you can also get the S7 ALS systems from ScorpionTrack, a well-established vehicle security company.

This tracker is not only a fantastic stand-alone system for your car, but it also works brilliantly as a cost-effective fleet-tracking solution with a host of advanced features that you often only get on more expensive systems.

Rated to S7 by industry-leading Thatcham Research, this tracker comes with a free smartphone app giving you access to all the notifications and alerts, including geofence alerts, journey history, low battery and tow-away and tamper alerts, right in the palm of your hand.

Not only that but because it uses a combination of GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and GSM technologies, location tracking is much more accurate and resistant to interference.

Teletrac Trackstar S7

Whilst this tracker might be the most expensive of the three listed here, it still comes in at under £200! Incredible value for a tracker that’s approved by heavy-hitting manufacturers like BMW, Range Rover, Land Rover and Jaguar.

The Trackstar S7 from Teletrac, formerly known as Trafficmaster, gives you global coverage and, thanks to its Trackstar smartphone app, gives you anti-tamper alerts, motion alerts and battery disconnect alerts. It’s also fully transferable to another vehicle.

The other great thing about this tracker is that, at the time of writing, we are offering an extra 6 months FREE subscription when you purchase a 1-year subscription, and an extra 12 months free when purchasing the 3-year option.

The Choice Is Yours!

Whilst these three amazing trackers all offer some of the best value for money, they are only part of the range of trackers we have in our store.

If you use a van in your day-to-day working life, chances are it will be a cornerstone of what you do. Not only do vans provide value and versatility, they often contain equipment and tools worth a lot of money.

Anyone who’s had a van stolen or broken into will know that keeping it secure is going to be a top priority. If you’re lucky enough not to have been through that heartbreak, then that doesn’t mean you’re immune from car thieves.

Let’s take a look at some of the best trackers available to help secure your van so it’s ready when you need it.


If you’re looking for a van tracker that is fully featured, insurance-approved and cost-effective, then look no further than the incredible S7 from ScorpionTrack.

ScorpionTrack are one of the longest-running vehicle security manufacturers out there, so you can be assured that you’re getting a tracker with a terrific pedigree.

Whether you want to track one van or a whole fleet of them, then this tracker is perfect.

Not only do you get access to a wealth of features via its dedicated smartphone app, like journey history and driver behaviour analysis, but you also get advanced tracking technologies built in.

These include the fairly typical GPS and GSM, but also GLONASS and Galileo to give you extra coverage that spans the globe.

If that’s not enough, should you find yourself needing a tracker with more advanced features to satisfy any insurance requirements, then this meets those needs too.


If you’re running your own business via your van, then you’ll probably want a tracker that is more self-managing, and that’s exactly where the UTrack from SmarTrack comes into its own.

This amazing system lets you monitor your vehicle by either its accompanying smartphone app, but also through a secure online account. Whilst it works brilliantly with vans, it’s also just as useful in cars, HGVs and motorhomes.

Even though it packs a real punch in terms of its functionality, including a raft of alerts and notifications to keep you informed, it comes in a very compact form factor which means it can be hidden very well during installation.

The UTrack case is also waterproof (IP67) and comes with Google Maps integration, so you always know where you are with this fantastic tracker.


The Shield from MetaTrak is another brilliant tracker, one that is packed with features, but also offers a more self-managed solution.

If you’re looking for a more cost-effective tracker, then you can’t do much better than this one. It’s designed to give you that peace of mind, but it’s also a great choice if you’re not bound by insurance company approval.

Whilst it is neither Thatcham-approved nor backed by a 24/7 Control Centre, this does mean that the subscription costs are significantly lower than many other models.

In this difficult economic climate, this might just be the perfect tracker for you, one that still gives you live tracking and a host of alerts, but also won’t break the bank!

Don’t wait for the worst to happen before making the right choice for your van’s security.

 We have vehicle trackers to meet every circumstance and price range for your car, van, bike and motorhome.

 Be a man with a van who can plan …. to buy the best tracker from us and get it installed UK-wide.

Most vans aren’t known for their inbuilt security features which is why adding an after-market car tracker is always going to be a great decision. If you want to know more about these trackers, or the many more we have in stock, our team is available from 9 am – 6 pm, Monday to Friday on 0330 043 3993 to help keep you moving. Give us a call.
