What are the benefits of driving with TomTom Traffic?

  • Gets you to your destination faster. Independent tests have shown that on average, drivers using TomTom Traffic can save up to 18.5% of their journey time 1 . Your TomTom continuously looks for the fastest route. If traffic changes and there is a better route, you will be the first one to know.

  • Puts you in control. TomTom Traffic creates a vivid picture of traffic conditions as they evolve. With detailed incident reports and real-time congestion information you’ll always know what lies ahead. Helping you to decide whether you are better off staying in the traffic, or taking a detour.

  • Gives you detailed traffic information. TomTom Traffic knows exactly where delays start and end, how fast the traffic is moving and how long the delays are likely to last. And because we understand the bigger picture, we don’t advise you to leave one jam simply to enter another.

How does TomTom Traffic benefit the wider community?

We believe that if 10% of drivers use TomTom Traffic there will be a 'collective effect'. Roads will flow more efficiently and journey times will be reduced for everyone.

Partners & Media Reviews

AA“At the AA we trust that by equipping drivers with TomTom Traffic, they will have both a more positive navigation experience and a faster and safer journey.”
Steve Wing, Manager Mapping Services at the Automobile Association, June 2013
Trusted Reviews“Surpassing the competition for some years … providing jam-free routes much more effectively than any other traffic update system we have tested.”
Trusted Reviews, 31 October 2012
PC PRO"When it comes to avoiding traffic, TomTom simply crushes the competition"
PC Pro, 22 June 2012


"I'm impressed by the ability to get up to the minute traffic information, which proved to be accurate (e.g. indicating just where a hold-up starts, and what is happenening on other potential routes which avoid the problem). Also impressed by the accuracy of the forecast of arrival time."

"The service allows you to concentrate on driving rather than attempting to spot the turning before passing it. You get a complete guide to travel time distance and speed traps. I cannot do without it."

"There are no longer any mysteries about what lays ahead or if you are on the fastest route. Tomtom keeps you updated with very accurate information on delays ahead and the alternatives available to you. The secret is 'Trust your Tomtom' and I certainly would not be without it."
