Vehicle & Car Tracking Costs
The cost of vehicle tracking systems for your business will depend on whether the system is for one personal car or a company fleet. There are vehicle and van tracking price options for all budgets and fleets of all sizes. The level of tracking and extent of reporting will also affect vehicle tracking cost.
A personal tracker can cost less than £300 to install. Subscription charges work out at about 38p a day, roughly £140 a year. The cheapest vehicle tracking system will not report any data or generate any reports, but gets activated once you report your car or vehicle to the police as stolen.
Any vehicle tracking system fitted to your company car is likely to earn you a discount from your insurer and different discount rates apply between insurers.
Company Fleet Vehicle Tracking Costs
The cost per car of tracking systems for vehicle fleets usually decreases as the size of the fleet increases, but it may cost more than a standard tracking system because of the extra information needed.
Additional reporting information normally required for company fleet tracking include:
speed limit alerts
how long the engine remains running when the vehicle is not moving
hours active in the field during the working day
Another important reporting element for company fleets is the amount of business and private mileage accrued during each month. Business vehicle tracking systems cost can start from around 50p a day per vehicle.

Passive vs Active Tracking
Broadly, there are two methods of tracking a vehicle in terms of sending data from the on board tracker to the server: Active and Passive tracking systems.
1. Passive Tracking Systems collect tracking data which, when the vehicle is returned to a certain point, can be accessed and analysed.
2. Active Tracking Systems also collect the tracking data but use a satellite or mobile network to upload data live enabling real time tracking. Active tracking systems are necessary where time critical operations are carried out such as field service engineer team vehicles and courier/delivery operatives.
