Burlington Auto insurance 101
Car insurance is one of the costs associated with owning a car. However, it’s also the most important and is required by law. The best way to save on your Burlington car insurance premiums is to compare rates. Car insurance rates are always changing and vary by company, which means more opportunities to save.
If you’re a new driver it will likely be a bit more expensive. It takes time to build up your driving history to show that you are not a high-risk driver. Over time, with more experience, your car insurance premium will decrease if you maintain a clean driving history.
In addition to location and your driving record there are several other factors that go into determining insurance rates including:
- The type of car you drive.
- How often and how far you drive.
- The deductibles you choose, as well as any extra coverage you want to have on your policy.
Optional Coverage And Endorsements
Every province has compulsory minimums that you must have as part of you possible. In Ontario, the standard car insurance policy includes Accident Benefits, Direct Compensation-Property Damage, Third-Party Liability, and Uninsured Auto coverage. There are however, optional coverages and endorsements that you can add to your policy for an additional premium. Some of the most popular include:
- Collision coverage: this covers damage to your vehicle as a result of an impact of collision with another vehicle or object.
- Comprehensive coverage: this protects your car against damage caused by things like theft and vandalism.
- Loss of use: In case you’re in an accident, this covers your transportation costs (like a rental car) while your vehicle is being repaired or replaced.
- Rental car: If you frequently rent cars, this ensures that your rentals have both collision and comprehensive coverage.
- Depreciation Waiver: If you have a new car, this endorsement ensures you’ll receive the full value of your vehicle in case it ever ends up being considered a total loss.

I'm going to a conference in Michigan next month and want to hop across the border into Ontario for a night just so I can say I've been to Canada. (Yeah, I know, very touristy...)
