Kitchener is a city on the move and it’s growing. Kitchener is attracting more and more people to the area with a growth in its population that exceeds not just the provincial average but that of the nation. Based on the 2016 census, Kitchener’s population grew by 6.4 per cent since the last census was taken which means there are more drivers on the roads too. Compared to the provincial average (4.6 per cent) and the national average (5 per cent), there’s an appeal about Kitchener that makes people want to live there. But with almost 80 per cent of Kitchener’s workforce relying on their car to get to their place of employment, coupled with a growing population, it’s not surprising then that Kitchener’s commute time is increasing as well. Each day, Kitchener residents spend on average 22.7 minutes getting to work and another 22.7 minutes getting home. It’s a lot of time to spend in the car commuting which means tickets and accidents are apt to happen.
Just like the type of car you drive, another component that goes into the premium you pay for your Kitchener car insurance coverage is your driving history. For example, the type of driver’s licence you have and how long you’ve held your licence counts, and tickets and collisions also play a starring role in how much you pay for your coverage. For example, moving violations (tickets) will stay on your driving record for three years, while collisions could affect your premiums for at least six.
Drivers in Kitchener who compared auto insurance quotes at Kanetix.ca mostly do not have tickets or collisions on their driving history that would affect what they pay. Almost 84 per cent of Kitchener drivers said they have not had a ticket in the last three years, while 78 per cent said they were collision-free for the last decade. That’s good news when it comes to Kitchener auto insurance rates because maintaining a clean driving record is an easy was too maintain coverage that doesn’t hit your wallet hard.

Ways to save on your Kitchener auto insurance rate
It’s expected that auto insurance rates in Ontario will be increasing in the coming year, and drivers in Kitchener will not be immune. There are ways however, to save on your coverage.
First and foremost is to shop around. Too many Ontario drivers allow their policy to automatically renew without first seeing if another provider offers a cheaper rate. According to a survey from the Financial Services Commission of Ontario, 52 per cent of Ontario drivers simply paid the renewed rate, or took no action, when their policy was up for renewal. But when rates are changing, as they are now, this could be a missed opportunity to spend less on the coverage you need.
Maximize the discounts that are available.Make sure you insure all your family’s automobiles together, consider purchasing your home insurance from the company who insurers your vehicles, and use winter tires. Also, don’t be afraid to ask your current insurance provider about their list of discounts as there may be discounts available that you didn’t know about and they didn’t know to offer. For example, if your child is attending school outside of the city in which you live, you could be eligible for a “living away from home” discount.
Review your optional coverages (like collision and comprehensive) to see if they’re still necessary, and if they are needed consider raising your deductibles to $1,000 if they’re set lower.Depending on what your deductibles are currently set at, raising them could save you in the neighbourhood of five to 10 per cent.
