Most car insurance renewals occur as the weather warms

TORONTO, March 30, 2011 - Spring is in the air and with warmer temperatures and melting snow comes the official kick off to auto insurance season in Canada says car insurance comparison website

In Ready? Set. Go! It's car buying season Kanetix.careveals that Canadian auto insurance renewals closely mirror Canada's car buying season. In 2010, 28% of car insurance quotes through Kanetix.cawere for shoppers who indicated their policy renewed in the spring months of March, April and May. This is in contrast to only 20% in the cold winter months. Spring is not the high season however; as the weather gets even warmer and the summer months approach, the trend increases to 29.3%.

As auto insurance rates change from year-to-year, reminds drivers to shop around for the best auto insurance rate and coverage to suit their needs. Insurance companies are not all the same, they offer a variety of coverage options, rewards (where available) and payment plans.
