Momentum Safety Alert

Momentum Short Term Insurance has boosted its safety offerings for customers with the introduction of Safety Alert, an emergency panic button linked to armed response, which is available through the Momentum app.

Momentum started its safety offerings with the introduction of Safety Score in 2015, enhanced with the launch of Safe Dayz in 2017.

These offerings, and others such as Home Drive, Momentum Assist and now Safety Alert, encompass personal, road and home safety with the main aim of helping its clients avoid risk(s) or minimise the impact if a risk event occurs. Safety Alert is linked to 1 500 armed responders throughout South Africa.

Activating Safety Alert via the Momentum App on a smartphone allows for the immediate pinpointing of a location and the dispatch of an armed response unit. 

Users must ensure their location setting is active when initiating Safety Alert. It is free of charge to all Momentum Car and Home Insurance policyholders for a limited time until August 2020.

Platform: Android and iOS
