Auto insurance in Canada is expensive: Make sure you're not overpaying for it

In 2017, a report commissioned by the Ministry of Finance in Ontario detailed how much drivers pay for auto insurance across the country, and the numbers are high, no matter where you live. Ontario auto insurance rates are the highest in the country, on average, and come in at $1,458 per year; Alberta auto insurance comes in around $1,179; and, in Quebec, the average premium is about $724. Whether you live in Ontario where auto insurance premiums are highest or in Quebec where car insurance is more affordable in comparison, there's no reason why you can't be being paying less for the coverage you need.

You've got nothing to lose, just money to save by comparing auto insurance quotes today at Kanetix.ca.

What's in a name? The story behind the name Kanetix

In 1999, when Kanetix was first started, we wanted an original name to reflect the unique ways we were changing how people shopped for insurance in Canada. The name Kanetix was decided upon.

The thinking at the time was that it represented an entity that was (and continues to be) active, dynamic and energizing. A company that is always in motion and moving forward to help Canadians make better money decisions using the latest in technology. This could be why visitors sometimes search for "kinetic insurance" or "kinetics insurance" when they search for us online; they understand the association we originally intended.

Finding us online is not difficult. If you simply type the word "Kanetix" or "auto insurance" into just about any search engine, you're sure to find us. But, we admit it, it's a strange spelling and there are literally dozens of different ways to spell Kanetix.

Popular variations on Kanetix: Kantex, kinetix, kenetics, kinetix or kinetic insurance

The reasons for the interesting variations in spelling could be because we do some radio, print and television advertising, and because we get a lot of word of mouth referrals. So, people hear the name or a friend shares a story about saving money by getting quotes at Kanetix, and they later go online and type out the word the way it sounds: "kenetics" or "kinetix" or "kenetix", and sometimes even "kantex insurance". Other interesting variations include: kanetics, kinetiks, kenetix, kinetixs, kinetis, kanetx, kanitex, kanitix, kannetix, kanotix, kanteix, kantix, kenatix, kenetixs, kenitex, kenitix, kennetix, kentix, kinatix, as well as knetix and kineticx.

No matter how it's spelled, Kanetix can help you save on your insurance

Auto insurence? Car insureance? Term life insurnace?

While exploring this topic, it became even more fascinating just how many variations of insurance we discovered. Insurence was the most popular, with people searching for "car insurence" and "auto insurence" and "cheap car insurence", as well as "business insurence" and "home insurence".

Insureance was next in popularity, with many searches for "travel insureance information", "car insureance", "auto insureance", and other commonly searched insurance terms like "auto owners insureance", "life insureance" and "health insureance".

Insurnace was in there also, as in auto owners insurnace company, home owners insurnace, term life insurnace and homeowners insurnace.

We think these kinds of variations in the spelling of "insurance", like: car ensurance, auto ensurence, insurrence, insurince, insrance, insuarance, insureancce, ensureance, car insrance, home insruance, insurnace, auto owners insuance, car insuarnce and insruance, are the product of fingers typing faster than the eye to keep up.

It's easy to make a typo when searching something online: we've found regular searches for terms like auto insurace, auto insurances, car insurace, and car insurances are common. Thankfully, search engines recognize the typos and bring the individual to the content they desire.

Missed keystrokes produce words like: car insrance, auto insurane, insurance, carinsurance, and autoinsurance

The QWERTY keyboard is quirky which causes many people to miss keystrokes when typing out a query: auot, autoinsurance, homeinsurance, car insuranc, auto insurane, insurnce, insuance, insuranse, nsurance, isurance and even inurance, are just a few common examples. These missing keys are not a significant issue for most search engines though, as they commonly apply a spell-check to help the searcher find the services they're seeking.

Hopefully you've enjoyed this little diversion, and we want you to know that no matter how you found us, we expect that we'll be able to help you. Whether you're looking to secure insurance, a mortgage or a new credit card, we make it quicker and easier for you to get quotes from the top providers all in one place. It's that simple, and we invite you to see what we can do for you.

Every season, no matter the season, has its own set of driving hazards. Whether it's spring, summer, fall or winter, these driving tips will help you get to where you want to go, safely.

Spring may be in the air, but there are often storms that are reminiscent of winter. Check out the 'Snow, Ice and Winter Storms' section for in-depth coverage in how to drive in winter weather, plus:

Day or night turn on your headlights. Spring temperatures can change in the blink of an eye resulting in misty, foggy conditions that can reduce your visibility. And while foggy conditions are common in spring, so too is the occasional spring blizzard; don't be too quick to ditch the winter car safety kit in your car, or switch from your winter tires to your summer set.

April showers, may bring May flowers, but it also often brings wet slippery roads. Drive to the conditions and you'll get to where you want to go safely. As you would in winter, slow down and leave extra distance between your vehicle and the one ahead of you. It takes longer to stop when conditions are wet and slippery. Also, where possible, drive in the middle lanes; water tends to pool in the curb lanes and could lead to hydroplaning.

Foul weather isn't the only factor to watch for; warm weather means there will be more motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians out and about. Watch for pedestrians and share the road with all users.

Lastly, your car has been through a lot in the winter and is probably in need of some attention. Take it in for a spring tune up to your risk of driving problems this spring.

After a long bitter winter and a slow wet spring, you may be ready to hit the road again, but be careful: according to the Canada Safety Council, more fatalities occur on Canadian roads during the summer months than at any other time of year. Whether you're heading out for the day, going to the cottage or taking a road trip with the family, remember to put safety first.

You'd think that summer driving would be the safest, when in fact the reverse is true. Summer brings increased traffic to the roads and highways. With more drivers on the road, construction, motorcyclists, cyclists, and pedestrians to watch for, don't let the clear weather fool you into thinking that summer driving is easy driving.

Stay safer this summer and: don't drink and drive; always wear your seatbelt; don't drive when fatigued; and tune out the distractions.

The dog days of summer are over, and there's a chill in the air. Weather conditions in the fall, like spring, can be unpredictable. A warm, sunny day can turn dark, cold and rainy in no time. Mist and fog can reduce your visibility, and the first snow of the winter isn't unlikely. Give yourself plenty of space between you and the cars around you and remember to drive to the conditions.

The leaves may be changing colour and are beautiful to admire, but keep your eyes on the road and your attention focused. Fall brings the first frost of the season so beware of slippery conditions. And, if the temperature is hovering around freezing, then approach bridges and overpasses with caution as these tend to ice up quicker than the road.

When the leaves fall remember that they are a hazard on their own; they can hide potholes or other road hazards, and when they're wet, can be as slippery as any ice-covered road.

Ice is a major concern for anyone driving in extreme cold weather conditions. Not only does it create a smooth surfacing that can lead to sliding and loss of vehicular control, but it can also be difficult to detect. When faced with this type of road condition, drive carefully and reduce your speed and allow as much as three car lengths more than normal between yourself and the car ahead of you.

In general, drive slowly and refrain from stepping too heavily on the brakes to avoid skidding. Watch out in particular for black ice. In areas that experience extremely cold weather, melted snow and puddles of water can quickly freeze, particularly when in the shade or on a bridge or overpass. It is called black ice because it can be nearly impossible to see until you're upon it.

Heavy snow creates a driving situation that is a mixed bag of dangerous driving conditions. It diminishes your ability to see, and creates slippery road conditions. At the beginning of snow season, invest in winter or snow tires. This will give the best traction possible for the conditions.

During heavy snowfall, it is safest to avoid driving. If staying off the road is not an option, first clear the car's windows of snow and ice to improve visibility. As with driving in icy conditions, it is important that the distance between cars is at least three car lengths more than normal. When other cars follow too closely, allowed them to pass.

Sleet and freezing rain can affect a your ability to safely manoeuvre your vehicle, and often officials will advise you to avoid driving under these conditions. When driving in these conditions is absolutely necessary, follow safe driving protocols: reduce speed and allow more following distance. Drivers often encounter freezing rain and sleet on bridges and overpasses first and should always exercise extreme caution when driving across them.

If you become stranded during winter storm conditions such as a blizzard, remain in the vehicle until help arrives. To make the car more visible, a brightly coloured ribbon, piece of cloth or towel should be tied to an antenna or outside mirror. An emergency kit that contains water, blankets, rope, a flashlight, and non-perishable foods should be kept in the car for emergencies. Use the additional clothing and blankets to keep warm. If there are no blankets in the car use items such as floor mats or even the seat covers to help keep warm. The car's heater may be used, but it should only be run for ten minutes every hour. When running the heater, keep a window slightly open to help with ventilation. Additionally, the vehicle's exhaust pipe should be kept clear to prevent poisonous gases from entering the car.

Whether it is freezing rain or blizzard-like snowfall, it is important that people drive safely when getting behind the wheel. While it is often best to stay indoors during extreme weather conditions, knowing how to drive for the specific condition goes a long way in keeping one safe while on the road.
