Shopping for car insurance in Vaughan
As the 17th largest municipality in Canada and a population of 325,000 and counting, the city of Vaughan is one of the fastest growing in Ontario. Families are flocking to Vaughan’s main communities of Woodbridge, Thornhill, Concord, Maple and Kleinberg, making Vaughan a desirable place to live and the drive to Toronto for work, only 30 minutes away.
That said, car insurance rates are fairly high compared to other Ontario cities, and it is good practice to compare your auto insurance rates regularly to ensure you’re always paying the lowest price. Comparison websites like Kanetix.ca can make it easy and quick for Vaughan drivers to find the best rate. Search for quotes from the 50+ insurance providers, the most available anywhere online, to find a rate that works for you. The service is free to use so it only makes sense to start searching today.
Tips for getting cheap auto insurance rates in Vaughan
It’s actually not hard to ensure that you’re saving the most you possibly can on your car insurance premiums. Here are some the most effective ways to save:
Choose the right coverage. Striking the extras from your insurance policy and paying for only the coverage you need will certainly lower your premiums.
Drive carefully. Your driving record impacts your insurance rate. The more tickets, collisions and fines that you incur can drive up your premiums.
Combine to save. Adding a house, tenant, motorcycle or other type of insurance policy to your car insurance plan can lower your rates, too. Ask about these multi-line discounts for bundling up.
Safety first. Add-ons like winter tires, anti-theft systems, and safety features will not only keep you safe but also help reduce your insurance rates.
Location matters. Where you live and how far you drive daily affects your premiums. Some areas are associated with higher car accident and theft rates. Kanetix.ca’s Insuramap tool can show you which areas are the most and least expensive to insure.
Loyalty rewards. Some insurance providers give special discounts to customers who’ve been with them for a long time. Although we always encourage drivers to review their insurance policies annually, loyalty will sometimes pay off.
Get professional training. A defensive driving course and new driver training on your record can significantly reduce your car insurance premiums. Take a course to not only increase your skills but you’ll realize the investment in your insurance savings, too.
Pay on time. You may not consider this, but paying your bills promptly can save you money on late fees and keep you a good customer in the eyes of the insurer.
Experience matters. The more experience you have on the road can mean lower car insurance premiums as well. Always practice safe driving habits to ensure your driving record is spotless.
Choose the right car. Cars with high safety ratings, low theft rankings, and less powerful engines tend to have cheaper insurance rates. Compare insurance quotes before you buy.
Consider usage-based insurance. With new technologies being standard in cars produced these days, tracking driving behaviorand providing drivers with discounts for low-risk habits are becoming more realistic and our appetite and acceptance has been growing for this type of insurance.
Shop around. Kanetix.ca gives you the most competitive rates from the leading insurers in one place. Compare and save today.
