What’s Auto Insurance?
Auto insurance protects you against financial loss in the event of an accident or theft. Basic automotive insurance is a requirement for operating your vehicle.
There are four mandatory types of auto insurance policies to legally insure your vehicle. They are:
Liability - this helps provide coverage if you are involved in an at-fault accident in which the other driver sues you.
Accident benefits - this helps provide coverage if you or someone in your vehicle is injured in an accident.
Direct compensation benefits – this helps cover the cost of damage to your vehicle in accidents in which you are not at fault or partially at fault.
Uninsured motorist - if you are in an accident with an uninsured driver or a hit-and-run.
Insurance providers rely on big data when establishing car insurance rates. If you live in an area of town with more break ins or accidents then you may pay more than someone else who lives in a different area of town.
What Does Auto Insurance Cost?
The cost of your auto insurance is influenced by several factors and circumstances including:
Your vehicle type - make, model and year are considered and the likelihood of your model being stolen.
The primary driver’s age - typically, the more experience you have the better your driving record, which is why older, more experienced drivers typically pay less premiums than younger drivers.
Your location – more densely-populated areas tend to have higher rates of claims than rural areas.
Vehicle use - your driving habits and daily usage can also influence your rates. If you drive hundreds of kms a day.
Driving record - we like to offer discounts for clean driving records. If you have traffic tickets for speeding, texting or impaired driving, your premiums will be impacted.
