Your advantages with DrivePartner

  • Fast help in emergencies
  • 15% premium discount for drivers between 18 and 25
  • Drive with foresight and receive vouchers

Here's how it works

DrivePartner, the concept of our partner ryd suisse AG, is your daily companion - everywhere, night and day:

  • Your DrivePartner consists of the ryd box and the ryd app.
  • The ryd box is directly attached to your vehicle and never needs maintenance, comparable with a USB plug.
  • The key facts about your vehicle are visible in the ryd app, which is like an on-board computer. 

You'll also receive push messages containing useful driving information. And, if things get serious, the events leading up to an accident can be reconstructed thanks to acceleration sensors so that you can prove your innocence.

Take out car insurance from AXA now and order the DrivePartner free of charge.

Support and frequently asked questions

  • What is the DrivePartner?

    The free DrivePartner is based on the ryd suisse AG range and consists of the ryd box (hardware) and the ryd app (software). This offer has been developed exclusively for AXA.

    Once plugged into the vehicle, the ryd box records various vehicle data, the routes driven, as well as driver behavior. All of this information is clearly displayed in the ryd app in your smartphone together with lots of additional useful driving information and functions. Regardless of where you are.

    You'll find additional information at ryd.one/axa.

  • Where in the vehicle do I plug in the ryd box?

    The ryd box is a small plug that is attached to the service interface (OBD2) of the vehicle. This interface is in the driver section of the vehicle, usually in the lower part of the dashboard. Below is a diagram showing the possible locations of this interface:

  • Who installs the ryd box?

    You can simply plug the ryd box into your vehicle's service interface (OBD2) yourself. In certain vehicles, the installation is only possible using a cable since the installation location is in an unfortunate position in the vehicle. In such cases, DESA will carry out the installation so that we can be sure the ryd box functions reliably. The ryd box delivery includes information as to whether you can install the box yourself or whether DESA will carry out the installation. Installation by DESA takes about 20-30 minutes.

  • What information does the DrivePartner record?

    The DrivePartner records the following information via the ryd box using GPS, acceleration sensors, and via the OBD2 interface:

    ·       GPS position

    ·       Acceleration values

    ·       Date & time

    ·       Operating status and functionality of the ryd box

    ·       Vehicle data, especially regarding the state of the vehicle

    ·       Driving information such as route driven and speed

    The data is recorded by the ryd box and then automatically transmitted to the ryd server in encrypted form via an integrated SIM card. The customer can display the prepared data in the ryd app. The data is not stored in the ryd box, but is continuously overwritten. The ryd server is located in Munich. It is operated by ThinxNet GmbH, a group company associated with ryd suisse, on behalf of ryd suisse AG.

  • Does AXA have access to the DrivePartner data?

    No. AXA does not have access to the data recorded by the ryd box. These are on the ryd server - safely encrypted and protected. AXA only receives data from ryd suisse AG under three exceptional scenarios:

    ·       AXA is notified if the ryd box is not plugged into the vehicle

    ·       If the customer is involved in an accident, AXA receives the accident data.

    ·       Data that the customer actively shares in the app with AXA such as vehicle location in case of a breakdown.

     

    What data is recorded in case of an accident?

    Data is recorded from 20 seconds before until 10 seconds after an accident. The following accident data is saved:

    ·       Date and time of the accident

    ·       Acceleration in the direction of travel and in a sideways direction

    ·       GPS location and vehicle speed

    The recorded accident data is transmitted as an encrypted data package via the integrated SIM card to the ryd server. Only employees of AXA can access and evaluate the accident data on the ryd server with its multi-layered protection.

  • What do I have to do if I no longer want to benefit from the DrivePartner offer?

    If you no longer want to use the DrivePartner, it must be excluded from your AXA car insurance contract. All you need to do is contact your AXA advisor or call: 0800 800 501.
