At Anytime we envision a world of safer driving and less accidents.

By creating the first insurance program that integrates with the Anytime Smart Drive Cyprus app on your mobile, which helps you rate your driving behavior and improve your driving. The safer you drive, the more you win!
What are your objectives?
Train our clients to adopt a more careful driving behavior and reward them for this
Anytime is the first online insurance brand in Greece with more than 400.000 clients with motor insurance. Active in the Cypriot market since 2017 we belong to the family of INTERAMERICAN, the leading insurance company in Greece, known for its credibility and high quality of services. INTERAMERICAN is a member of Achmea, an international insurance group established in the Netherlands.
In 2020 Anytime introduced an innovative motor insurance program to the Cypriot market called Smart Drive, created as part of the company’s vision of a safer future with fewer road accidents. Smart Drive has been designed to train the drivers to adopt a more careful driving behavior and reward them for that. This happens from the innovative app Smart Drive Cyprus, which can be downloaded by anyone from the App Store or Google Play.
The app, designed by a creative team from OSeven, enables users to monitor their driving behavior and receive tips on how to improve, while the insurance company, through the final driving score, can provide incentives so that everyone becomes a more careful driver.
The app rewards prudent, sensible driving, particularly in younger age groups. Anyone who drives carefully, does not use phone during driving, keeps reflexes sharp, adheres to the speed limit and generally follows the rules, gains a significant discount on their insurance fees. They can also receive vouchers from various partners and other brands through competitions and challenges.
Through this initiative, Anytime Cyprus brings the “pay how you drive” type of insurance to Cyprus, connecting the insurance product with an app that promotes safe driving, reduction of traffic accidents and car damages and provides a discount of up to 15% upon the renewal of their insurance plan.
