If you need car insurance, we will be happy to help you find the coverage that works best for you.

In Alberta, your car insurance premiums are calculated based of multiple factors:

  • The car you drive (the type, make, model, year, trim)
  • Your driving history & record (number of years you’ve been driving, number of years you’ve been insured, accidents and tickets)
  • How much you drive (how often and how far you drive)
  • Where you live (urban areas, rural areas, etc.)
  • The type of coverage you chose (adding optional coverage affects your rate)

It’s possible. Due to your lack of a driving record, your rates may be higher than someone with several years of experience, as we don’t know your driving habits yet.

All is not lost! We offer different savings options.

When possible, consider applying as a secondary driver under a parent's insurance policy. This allows you to pay a much smaller premium while allowing you to build up your auto insurance history.
