The month of May will be free for Onlia policyholders.

One month off, free of home or auto insurance premiums. That’s what Onlia is giving its home and auto insurance customers during the month of May.

All active policyholders as of March 31st with at at least one full monthly premium payment under their belt will automatically receive the month of May off. The one-month premium waiver, Onlia says, is intended to help relieve the financial impact of the pandemic by providing immediate savings at a time when Canadians need it most.

"Onlia has always put the safety of Canadians first, and now more than ever we are pulling together to protect one another," says Pieter Louter, CEO of Onlia in a press release. "With customers presently experiencing un-precedented lifestyle changes, we are taking additional steps to provide support and assistance to our community."

In addition to the free month, the company is also rejigging its safe-driving app to reward Canadians for staying home. The app usually rewards safe driving, however, in May it will reward insurance customers with $20 cash for keeping the car parked and not driving at all.

Insurance Payment and Premium Relief Measures: The List Grows

The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on our economy and millions of Canadians are struggling with their personal finances during the lockdown. And with Onlia’s latest announcement, the list of insurance payment and premium relief measures continues to grow.
