    Legitimate, yes, reliable, who knows? Telematics insurance is generally not all that "reliable", but you don't really have a choice.
    My sister is with Hastings smart miles who are also telematics insurance and she’s had no problems, so think this is the best option for me, I’m surprised at the price tbh

    However; whilst I normally don't endorse telematics but really right now, you need any insurance, the conditions barely matter at this point and a few of the specialist insurers will probably try to offer you really crap expensive 6k mileage telematics policies anyway as you're 17 and in a deep hole that they'll struggle to get you something competitive with.

    1800 is good, but make the phonecalls anyway. If you can get "normal" policy within £700 extra of that I'd still advise taking it. I'd also read the conditions and make sure your details are correct; that price could be for something stupid like really low miles or can only drive at x time in x areas. You do not want two cancellations on policy (yes they both show up, and yes you will have to explain both of them if you find yourself looking for an insurer for the third time - they will call and ask about them). Please please please be careful.
