Now Teens can Just Add Fuel too

Peugeot's fixed-cost motoring package, Just Add Fuel, is now available to teenage drivers.

Since launch in July 2010, over 27,000 UK drivers have taken advantage of Just Add Fuel but it has only previously been available to drivers aged 21 or older.

Now, thanks to the use of advanced telematics technology, younger drivers aged 18-20 choosing the Peugeot 108, can also benefit from the 3-year package which offers a single monthly payment to cover all motoring costs, including insurance, servicing, road fund licence (£0 on the Peugeot 108), and roadside assistance.

Neil Moscrop, Peugeot Brand Director commented: "Just Add Fuel is recognised as the most significant innovation in vehicle retailing for a number of years. Now we can widen its appeal even further, allowing a broader spectrum of drivers to experience the thrill of owning a new Peugeot car."

Just Add Fuel for those aged 18-20 is only available to Peugeot 108 buyers and is priced from £248 rental per month. A discreet plug-in telematics device is sent to customers immediately after they take delivery of their car and attaches to the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) port under the steering wheel. It's a simple installation but Peugeot Dealers will be happy to help if required.

Via satellite tracking, it stores and sends data on the vehicle's speed, acceleration, deceleration and lateral G-forces to assess the customer's driving style and rate each journey made, on a scale from 1-100. 

Customers will have access to an online portal where they can review their driving activity. This is also regularly monitored by the insurer and an aggregate score awarded.

Feedback is provided to assist the customer in improving the score if necessary, but if it falls below an agreed threshold, the driver will receive a warning. Four warnings a year will result in the insurance policy being cancelled and may also reduce the number of insurance products available to the customer, and/or increase the premiums they are quoted.

Terms and conditions apply, including a requirement for a full UK driving licence, permanent UK residency and no 'fault' insurance claims. 

Just Add Fuel with telematics is also available to Peugeot 108 buyers aged 21-75 who do not have two years' No Claims Discount, or have held a full UK driver's licence for less than two years.
