Why is car Insurance so expensive in Kitchener?
Ontario is a province that many are immigrating to because of the diverse communities and economic opportunities. There is one thing that Ontario has that many which it didn’t is some of the highest auto insurance rates in the world. Many ask why this is. It was determined in 2017 by the Special Advisor to the Ministry of Finance that car insurance rates were an average of $1,558 for Ontario drivers. To put this in perspective, this is 55% higher than the average cost of auto insurance rates in other provinces and territories in Canada. Actuarial statistics show us that because Ontario is more densely populated than the other provinces and that leads to higher chances of claims. In 2017, the Ontario Minister of Finance also revealed that auto insurance fraud was higher than any other part of Canada with a whopping $1.6 billion dollars in auto insurance fraud that funnels through the province every year. Unfortunately, insurance fraud is one of the primary reasons why Ontario auto insurance is so expensive.
How are auto insurance premiums calculated in Kitchener Ontario?
An auto insurance policy in Ontario has a variety of moving parts that are factored into the rate. The following are the various factors that car insurance rates are based upon.
How long you have been licensed
How long you have been insured
In what country you have been insured
Your past accidents in the last 6 years (including partially at fault accidents)
Your past convictions in the last 3 years
Your insurance payment history such as past cancellations by an insure company due to non-payment
Having driver’s training
Your location- A densely populated area is prone to higher rates.
Use of vehicle such as commuting, business or just for simple pleasure use. For example someone who commutes 60 km to work will pay more for insurance then someone who only commutes 3 km.
Vehicle year and type – Certain vehicles have better safety ratings or higher accident statistics which will get you cheaper rates.
Chosen deductible- The higher the deductible the cheaper the rates.
The Chosen coverage- The chosen liability limits, accident benefits coverage and chosen optional auto insurance coverages all affect the rates of an auto insurance policy.
The insurance company- each auto insurance provider has different risk appetites compared to their competitor. One company may have a better loss experience with a certain age demographic over a certain period of time and therefore offer cheaper auto insurance rates.
Are auto insurance quotes free in Kitchener?
Yes, auto insurance quotes are free in Kitchener and anywhere else in Ontario. An auto insurance broker or agent gathers your risk details and then provides an estimate of how much your particular policy will cost you. After you decide to proceed with coverage is when you begin to be charged for your car insurance coverage.
