How To Get The Cheapest Auto Insurance Quotes
One of the most common questions we are asked is how a vehicle owner can get the cheapest quote possible. No-one likes paying for auto insurance, but there are ways to ensure you get the best deal for you. Here’s what our experts say:
It is amazing how many customers still opt for the first or second quote they are given. This was acceptable in the good old days when getting a policy involved a long phone call or trip to an insurer. But these days, comparison sites like Shop Insurance Canada provide a list of affordable quotes based on your specific criteria in minutes
Get The Best Coverage For You
Consider you needs before going throught the quote process.Think about what policy details you need, if any can be removed, or even if any can be added. If you don’t need some of the extras beyond a basic policy, then you can choose not to include them and save money.
Obey The Law
Your driving record can have a profound impact on your auto insurance rate. If you have a prior infraction on your record you could be deemed a high risk driver, a demographic that pays the highest premiums. Maintain a clean record and ensure yourself the most affordable quotes.
Pay On Time
Insurance companies love customers who pay their policy on time. Keep up to date on your payments and enjoy discounts and your premium falling over time.
Home And Auto
Bundling home and auto insurance into one policy is a commonpractice for reducing auto insurance premiums.
Safe Means Discounts
If one thing pleases insurers more than anything else it’s showing that you are a safe driver. There are various ways to get discounts, such as installing winter tires or taking driving courses. Motorists can save between 5% and 30% by using this tactic.

Below are the car insurance categories in Canada:
Canadian law demands that all drivers have liability insurance on their vehicle. Without it the automobile will not be able to be registered. All insurance providers offer liability insurance as a base. This coverage handles the cost from damages caused to other people or vehicles in a collision. This covers medical bills, lost earnings, legal fees, and rehabilitation. Insurance companies will cover these aspects up to the level of liability coverage in a policy.
Emergency Road Service
ERS insurance gives customers roadside assistance if their vehicle breaks down or encounters another problem when out on the roads. This benefit will also deal with covering costs for getting the car back on the road.
As the name suggests, collision insurance provides coverage for a vehicle if it is involved in an accident with another vehicle or object. This also covers the cost of replacing a car if it is destroyed.
Customers with comprehensive insurance are protected from damages that come from situations not involving another vehicles. For example, cars are covered against fire, theft, flooding, weather events, and vandalism.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage
This insurance benefit provides coverage when you are involved in a collision with a vehicle operated by an uninsured or unidentified driver. If the driver is unidentified this covers for vehicle, injury, and death, while coverage protects the vehicle when there is an identified uninsured driver.
Direct Compensation Property Damage
DCPD protects motorists against losses that were not your fault. This is if the other driver/s in a collision are at fault. In some countries like the UK, the at-fault driver would pay through his insurance company. However, DCPD means your insurance company will cover you. This policy point is only available in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec.
No-fault insurance does not take into account who is at fault. Instead you just deal with your insurance company to get benefits, medical bills, and vehicle coverage.
Specified perils insurance will only cover specific perils that have been named by you in your policy. This is a watered down version of comprehensive insurance.
Auto Insurance Around The Provinces
Canada employs two different auto insurance models depending on which province you are located. Some use a private sector where privately held insurance companies sell products to customers and decide rates. There provinces are Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan, and Yukon.
Other provinces use a public system where there is a government run insurance company. Below are some key details on auto insurance in Canada’s provinces.
British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec, and Saskatchewan use a public system. British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan offer customers both private and public insurance options.
