For more than 60 years, belairdirect has been providing complete car and home insurance solutions direct to the consumer. Our company is built on innovation and a purpose to simplify people’s lives. In 1997, belairdirect became the first car insurance company in North America to offer an online car insurance quote directly to consumers! Today, we offer a streamlined online experience that makes buying car insurance easier than ever.

What we represent

We believe that insurance is too important to be complicated and should be accessible to everyone. Our purpose is to simplify people’s lives by helping them protect the things they care about.

  • Sincere We always give honest advice. We do the right thing for the right reason.
  • Direct We speak in plain language that everyone can understand.
  • Compassionate We believe the best way to build trust is by putting ourselves in your shoes. Rest assured, we’ll always try to find the best, simplest way to do things.
  • Courageous We’ve been courageous since the beginning, insuring taxi drivers when no one else would. When they say “It’s impossible,” we say “Just watch us”.

Giving back to our community

Breakfast club

At belairdirect, we want to be leaders of change. This is why we are involved with the Breakfast Club of Canada, which has been committed to nurturing children’s potential by providing access to a nutritious breakfast for over 23 years. Much more than a breakfast program, the Club's approach is based on commitment, self-esteem and capacity development. The Breakfast Club helps feed some 203,000 Canadian children in 1,600 schools across the country.

Our environmental impact

Okay, saving the planet is a big claim, but if half of our customers went digital this year, we'd eliminate 92,500,000 pages, which is the equivalent of 10,800 trees. That's a lot of paper! Go digital today by downloading our mobile app and be part of the change. You can learn more about our environmental efforts here.
