Who needs it?

Everyone — it’s the law.

If you’re in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba, you must buy mandatory accident benefits through a government-run insurance program. You may also be eligible for additional coverage through private insurers like us.

If you live in any other province or territory, you have more flexibility and choice when it comes to the company you want to work with and the level of coverage you want. Just because you’re required to have it, doesn’t mean you need to settle.

Faqs

 

We consider several factors when determining your premiums, including:

  • How many claims you’ve submitted in the past
  • Information about you (e.g., how long you’ve been a licensed driver)
  • Traffic violations (e.g., speeding tickets)

A deductible is the amount that you agree to pay (out of pocket) for claims-related expenses before your insurance company pays for the remaining costs.

Let’s say you have an accident and the total approved cost to repair damages is $5,000. If you chose a $500 deductible when you purchased your policy, you would need to pay for the first $500 worth of expenses, and Economical would cover the remaining $4,500.

TIP: Choosing a higher deductible will lower your insurance premium. Just be prepared to pay for any costs up to that deductible amount when you need to make a claim.

We recommend reviewing your policy at least once a year, but there are certain times when you’ll need to contact your broker to officially update it:

  • When your address has changed
  • Any time you buy another vehicle
  • When there’s an additional licensed driver in your household
  • If you’ve changed how you use your vehicle (e.g., for business)

Sorry, but we don’t offer coverage for Uber drivers at this time.
