How Much Does Car Insurance Cost in Alberta?

Well, that depends on a few things. We look at several key factors when calculating your insurance premium (and so do other insurance companies):

  • Your car make, model, and year are taken into consideration when quoting you a price. The kind of car you have determines its value, safety features, and how much it would cost to repair damages.
  • How you drive your car in addition to the number of kilometers you drive every year, including daily commute and business use.
  • Your driving record, which includes things like the number of years you've all been licensed for, speeding tickets, and accidents.
  • The area in which you live affects premiums – whether it's Edmonton, Calgary, or another city.
  • The coverage and add-ons you choose might cost more but can provide you with additional benefits that could save you money in the event of an accident.
  • We offer ways to save with preferred rates for professionals and alumni being one of the ways. Refer to the section below to find all the ways you can save on your insurance.

How Do I Save On Car Insurance in Alberta?

Here are a few simple tips to save on car insurance in Alberta:

  • Insure all your cars with us so you can make the most of our "multi-vehicle discount."
  • Insure both your car and home with us so that you qualify for a "multi-line discount."
  • Consider driving a "low-risk" vehicle. Insurance premiums are based on previous claim history, so the more likely the vehicle is to be stolen or in an accident, the more you'll pay for insurance.
  • Increase your deductible – insurance is really meant to cover you for damages you could never afford on your own. If you can afford a $1,000 repair job, then raise your deductible to $1,000 and pay less for your insurance.
  • Think about removing collision coverage if you drive an older car. This means weighing the cost of collision coverage with the value of your car and chosen deductibles.
  • Maintain a great driving record by remaining claims-free and conviction-free.
  • Increase your deductible - the higher it is, the lower your insurance premium will be.
  • If you are a new driver, take a driver's training course.
  • Have an approved, factory-installed anti-theft device installed in your car. We will automatically take this into account when deciding your premium. You would have to opt to have this installed after you get your car, though.

How Does Car Insurance Work in Alberta?

Once you've decided on the right kind of coverage and deductible amounts with your insurance provider, you will pay for an insurance premium. This will provide you financial protection against physical damage or bodily injury that can happen from traffic collisions. It can also cover liability costs if you ever injure someone else or their property in a car accident. With enhanced and special coverage options, you can explore ways to add extra protection also.

Car Insurance Eligibility and Restrictions

To be eligible for car insurance, you (and all drivers you wish to include in the policy) must have a valid driver's license. Insurance companies will look at your prior driving record to determine eligibility and rates. Other eligibility restrictions may arise from past convictions. This too will vary depending on when your last conviction occurred and the nature of the conviction.

Other insurance conditions may arise depending on the type of vehicle, its use, and any customizations or modifications made to the vehicle. For example, if you've altered your vehicle to enhance its performance or appearance, most insurance companies would need to assess the vehicle to determine if they could insure it. If you plan on modifying your vehicle, call us first! We will let you know if the changes you plan on making could have an impact on your policy and your premiums.
