Providing Auto Insurance To All Of Alberta
Alberta has the third highest car insurance rates in Canada, but it doesn’t mean you can’t save money on your insurance. That’s where insurance brokers can help.
Our brokers will find you the best insurance coverage options for your money. Let’s start with the basic coverage you need to get cruising on the road.
Mandatory Car Insurance
All drivers in Alberta must carry:
- Property damage/third-party liability
- Accident benefits
We highly recommend that motorists carry $2 million in third-party liability due to rising medical costs and an increase in high performance car repair expenses.
Physical Damage Coverage
In Alberta, you need mandatory car insurance to drive legally. But you may want extra protection based on your driving history, your age, your car model, and other factors that will impact your auto insurance rate. We can advice you on the following coverage:
- Collision Insurance: Collision coverage will protect you whether you’re at fault or not at fault for a collision, and there is damage to your car, or another car involved in an accident.
- Comprehensive Insurance: Covers repairs caused by perils, besides collisions or upsets. This includes hail, wind and flood damage, theft, and vandalism. For example, if your car is hit by a tree or someone keys your car door, you’ll be covered.
- All Perils: This includes a combination of collision and comprehensive insurance coverage. For example, you’ll have theft coverage if your car is stolen by someone who lives with you or by an employee.
- Specified Perils: This type of insurance covers perils that are predetermined in your auto insurance policy. This is like comprehensive coverage but doesn’t include vandalism and falling objects.
We help you pick the right auto insurance coverage to suit your lifestyle and pocketbook.
Auto Insurance Benefits
If you have a loss on the road, e.g. you’re involved in a car accident or your car is stolen, you’ll be covered for medical expenses and repairs up to a certain limit set in your policy. You’ll have protection when you need it.
