Types of coverage in your car insurance policy
Your car insurance policy is made up of the following coverages:
- Accident benefits: Accident benefits cover those injured in a vehicle in the event of an accident. Coverage can include medical and rehabilitation costs, funeral expenses, death benefits, as well as income replacement. As of June, 2016 there have been some changes to mandatory accident benefits.

Uninsured motorist coverage: This component of the standard Ontario auto insurance policy provides coverage for you and your family if you are in an accident and are injured or killed by a hit-and-run driver or by a driver who is not insured.
Third party liability: Third party liability coverage pays for a legal claim against the policyholder in the event that they are responsible (whether wholly or partially) for a collision that causes injury or damage to a third party. The minimum coverage requirement is $200,000 although most drivers take at least $1 million.
Direct compensation - Property damage: This component of your policy provides coverage for damage to your car and any property inside the car as a result of an automobile accident in which you are not-at-fault.
Collision: This covers damage to your vehicle as a result of an impact or collision with another vehicle or object.
Comprehensive: This insures your car against damage caused by non-collision-related events like theft and vandalism.
Both of these optional coverages typically come with a deductible. A deductible is the portion of an insurance claim you agree to pay. Generally, the higher the deductible, the lower your car insurance rate.

- Your commute: Drivers who work close to home or use public transit to get to work usually enjoy lower premiums than those who need to commute long distances on a busy roads. Simply put, those who don't drive as often are not as likely to get into an accident.
- The car you drive: Car insurance companies use a vast amount of vehicle data to compare safety ratings, repair costs and even the likelihood of theft when determining how much it would cost to insure your car.
- Your driving history: Past driving behaviour, including accidents, infractions, tickets or charges can count against you when your insurance rate is being calculated. Those with clean driving records should end up saving on insurance costs.
