Insurance is funny, in a weird sort of way, because rates can vary wildly between insurance companies. Also, premiums often change so the insurance provider who offered you the best rate two years ago, or even last year, may not be the insurer who offers you the best car insurance rate today. That’s why it’s so important to shop around, because the quote you get from one company can be significantly higher (or lower) than the quote you get from another.
It all starts with your postal code. Enter your postal code into the box and click "Start a Quote". From there, we'll ask you about:
1. Your vehicle and things like your annual kilometres driven
2. Your driving and insurance history
3. Discounts that you may be eligible to receive
That's it, you're done! And, once done, you'll instantly see the lowest rate available from our network of over 30 insurance companies, along with all your other quotes.
Most of what you'll need to get a quote, you'll know off the top of your head. For example, the make, model and year of the vehicle you drive. Additional information you'll be asked about includes:
It really doesn't take that long, about 5 to 10 minutes. Then, once done, you’ll instantly see the lowest rate available from our network of over 30 insurance companies, along with all your other quotes.
That's really up to you. If it's a great rate - and we're confident it will be - you'll be asked to provide your contact details and an insurance representative will get in touch with you. You can also call in to secure your rate if you're ready to chat about it. On the other hand, if you're not interested in the quote you got, then there's no need for you to do anything extra.
There are a lot of factors that go into what you pay for your car insurance coverage, and a lot can happen over the course of a year that could have a direct impact on what you pay for your coverage. Don’t wait until it’s time to renew to see if you could be saving money today. Shop around and compare rates anytime you have to call your insurer to update your policy, because if there’s a chance your rates may change there’s a chance you can be save money with a different insurer.
