Through experience, we know that the time it takes to get help at the scene of an accident can make the difference between life and death. AutoSOS is our automatic impact detection smartphone app that can save your client’s life.

AutoSOS will automatically detect when the car is in a severe accident, and if the accident is confirmed, the nearest emergency medical service (EMS) will immediately be dispatched to the exact accident location recorded by the app at the time of the accident.

Because of this, we highly recommend that you impress the benefits of this service on your client. You will need to remind them that they can only benefit from AutoSOS if the regular driver downloads and registers on the app. It is also important that they View the Terms of Use of the app.


By downloading the app and registering with Auto & General, you get the following benefits:
  • Automated identification of a crash event through the smartphone app
  • Automated, proactive notification to emergency medical services
  • Medical ID facility on the app which allows your client to store their medical information

Refer your client to the brochure if they want to find out more about how the AutoSOS app works. It is also available in Afrikaans

The AutoSOS app is available as a free download in the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store.
