What’s the Aviva Dash Cam?
The Aviva Dash Cam is the newest feature of our Aviva Drive app. Turn it on to use the camera on your phone to film the road ahead, and save footage from your journey whenever you like.
What’s more, the Aviva Dash Cam will auto-record any collisions, and can film your journey all the way from A-B too, so you can focus on the road.
But why should I get one?
Dash cams are getting more affordable and more popular, but Aviva Dash Cam goes one step further – coming totally free as a feature of our Aviva Drive app.
Why the popularity? Because they can act as your independent witness for claims. The video footage that your dash cam records and saves could prove vital in settling a claim.
Aviva Dash Cam can help you out if you need to explain a road incident to the police, too. Think about it – it's hard to argue with video evidence!
So sit back, de-stress, and drive safe. No matter what happens on the road, it’s easier to explain with the Aviva Dash Cam.
How do I get the Aviva Dash Cam?
What happens to the video clips I save?
Thanks to collision detection technology, Aviva Dash Cam can detect a collision and save footage of it automatically. You can also save footage manually, so you have total freedom over what you keep and what you delete.
All video clips will be saved in the app (but only stored locally on your phone) and you can watch them, share them and delete them at any time. They’re small files, so won’t clog up your phone memory, and are easily shareable – so you can send them to us to support a claim, as well as the authorities, your friends or anyone you like whenever you want to.
Will the clips I record stay private?
Even if your footage is stored in the Aviva Drive app, we’ll only see it if you share it with us. We can’t access your recordings any other way.
