What’s the benefit of having Home and Auto insured together?
Bundling your Home and Auto insurance will help you save money on both policies. As an added benefit, if you need to make a claim on both your house and car, you will only need to pay one deductible.
Why do I need Auto insurance?
In Canada, you must have Auto insurance before you are allowed to drive a car. By law, you must have the following basic coverage: Accident benefits (if you or a passenger are hurt in an accident); Unknown/uninsured motorist (in the case of a hit and run); Liability (if someone sues you); Direct compensation for property damage (for damages to your vehicle from an accident which isn’t entirely your fault or where you are not at fault).
What other policy features are available beyond the basic Auto package?
Options will vary by province and need; however here are some commonly purchased coverages: Specified Perils: covers the cost to replace/repair your vehicle if it’s damaged by theft, fire, or other rare incidents; Comprehensive Insurance: provides protection for specified perils and other scenarios such as vandalism, falling objects, and more; Collision or Upset: covers the cost to replace/repair your vehicle if it’s in a crash or if it tips over; All Perils: Combines all of the above and more.
Are other drivers allowed to drive my car?
If they are licensed and have received your permission, they are allowed. However, all licensed drivers in your home must also be listed on your policy.
What does “at fault/not at fault” mean?
It is a percentage of responsibility that is assigned to every driver that is involved in an accident but is calculated differently by various insurers. You could be considered not at fault (0%), partially at fault (1-99%) or at fault (100%).
How are auto premiums calculated?
Each insurer assigns a different rate based on how they assess the following factors: Limit and deductible required; Make, model and year of your vehicle; Vehicle usage (errands, commuting, commercial, etc.); Distance travelled annually; Address; Driving experience; Claims history; And more.
When do I need to update my policy?
While you should review your policy at least once a year, make sure to contact your broker if: you move, buy a new vehicle, add a new licensed driver to your policy, or begin using your vehicle for business purposes.
I have a classic car. Will my regular Auto policy cover me?
No. You need to purchase Classic car insurance which will provide you with special coverage tailored for vintage and classic cars.
Why do I need to insure my child who’s away at school as a driver?
