Car Insurance Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

After having lived stateside for a while and in BC before that, it's been a while since I've purchased private car insurance in Canada. Any recommendations? I'm not looking to go fancy here, as the ol' station wagon is getting up there in mileage. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks!

I just insured a new car recently, and did some shopping around. I wound up going with RBC, who I've been with for the last 6 years. They wound up being the cheapest for me.

I use these guys - http://www.aeroinsurancebrokers.com/ - and have been very happy with them, but I get a good discount through the Ontario Real Estate Association. Otherwise, call around locally to some insurance brokers, they can usually give you 4 or 5 options for different companies to go with. I would recommend avoiding banks and places with limited choice.

IMO of course.

Also, if you are in a union, professional organization, alumni from a university, mention it to the broker you find - group rates are much cheaper than individual rates.

Depends on what you're looking for too -

I would recommend Chubb. They are the most expensive, but also the most hassle free, from my experience anyways.

Whoever you used to be with might be a good starting point too. If you were a good customer you may be able to convince them to give you credit for being insured longer - whereas a new company may just look at you as a brand new policy because you haven't been insured in Canada for a while (I presume)
