EcoSure recently secured a short-term insurers licence from the regulator of Zim’s insurance industry IPEC (Insurance and Pensions Commission). The licence was issued last week and Econet Insurance is not wasting time putting the licence to use.

They have already announced a new service they will be releasing and they will be calling it EcoSure Moovah.

What happens with iDriveSure?

You are probably thinking, “wait, isn’t Econet already involved in car insurance?? What happened to iDriveSure?” Well, let’s talk about that. It was launched earlier this year but that service was a partnership between TiB Insurance Brokers and Steward Bank. Econet was not really the insurer in those cases but were actually partnering with other players in the industry.

EcoSure Moovah however is Econet through and through. The packages are quite similar to the ones that were being offered by iDriveSure but since Econet were not licensed back then they could

Back to business

The third party packages for EcoSure Moovah will be as follows:

Moovah – $56.00

Moovah – $28.99: Pre-vetted Customers

Moovah -$14.99: Pre-vetted Customers

Econet Insurance did not disclose what criteria will be used to actually determine how the customers will qualify for the pre-vetted packages.

Some of the perks that will come with all the packages include:

  • $5 airtime
  • Free delivery of insurance cover notes and licence discs to the customers’ premises at no extra cost
  • EcoSure Moovah customers will be able to pay their vehicle insurance cover in monthly instalments, over the renewal term of four months.
  • Free 10 litres of fuel for the first 10 000 cars to sign up
  • Free delivery of discs
  • Free $2000 accident cover
  • Free $500 funeral cover
  • Free $50 per day hospital cash back. In the event that customers are involved in an accident and they have to be hospitalised they will get $50 for each day spent in hospital. Mr Jojo also disclosed that this will apply for a maximum of two such incidents per/year.

Moovah Comprehensive Cover

For the comprehensive cover packages customers will be required to pay 4% of the value of their car. Three if you are part of a “group staff scheme”. The group staff scheme allows a company to ensure their employees cars. The comprehensive cover will come with all the above perks and another one we will ta

Tying this together with Connected Car

You’ve probably heard of Cumii. If not, they are a division within the Econet that focuses on all things related to IoT (Internet of Things). One of the products they have is called Connected Car and it allows drivers to have their vehicle tracked. Mr Jojo hinted that there would be something on the way for Connected Car customers who also sign up for Moovah. He hinted that the Connected Car will be used to determine driving habits and insurance premiums will be charged based on drivers’ behaviours.

This is something to look forward to because what it essentially means is that the more responsible you are behind the wheel the cheaper your insurance premium will become. There was no timeline indicated as to when this should be expected but it is something that will add value to the Moovah offering.

There will be a 10% insurance discount (exlusive to Moovah Comprehensive Cover) if you are an already existing user of Cumii’s Connected Car.

    I’m a bit conflicted about this. . As a customer this is great as a businessman if Econet with all their clout gets into everything we creating a real monster here… Solution we open our networks to foreigners who can compete adequately…. I’m sure half of these ideas came to Econet for outside and they took control… Look at the move from idrivr to moovah

      Slave mentality shame on you, always crying for foreigners, foreigners all the time

    2. Raphael

      We really have to debunk the thinking that there is a hero foreigner somewhere out there coming to save us. This is our country and we have to take a lead in building it. Are you saying you think there are zero Zimbabweans capable of competing with Econet?

    These $15 insurance policies are the ones IPEC has been battling to get rid off. They give vehicle owners a false sense of cover/security. When you are involved in an accident they only pay up to $300, meaning you the driver/owner of the vehicle becomes liable if the damages exceed that. It reads that the accident cover is $2000, does that apply to third party damages or to the death of the driver.
