Cost of Car Insurance in Quebec

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

  1. 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.

  2. How you drive your car in addition to the number of kilometers you drive every year, including daily commute and business use.

  3. Your driving record, which includes things like the number of years you've all been licensed for, speeding tickets, and accidents.

  4. The area in which you live affects premiums – whether it's Montreal, Quebec City, or elsewhere..

  5. 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 a covered loss.

  6. We offer ways to save with preferred rates for professionals and alumni being one of the ways. Check out the section below for more information on how to save on your insurance.

Ways you can save

  • Bundle car and home insurance

  • Insure two or more vehicles

  • Drive a hybrid or electric vehicle.

  • Have an approved anti-theft system installed.

How Do I Save On Car Insurance in Quebec?

Here are a few simple tips that can help you save on car insurance in Quebec:

  • 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."
  • Increase your deductible – insurance is really meant to cover you for damages you could never afford on your own. Generally speaking, a higher deductible can mean a lower premium.
  • Think about removing collision coverage if you drive an older car. This means weighing the cost of the collision coverage with the value of your car and chosen deductibles.
  • Maintain a great driving record – the safer you drive, the more you could save. By downloading and using the TD MyAdvantage app, which collects and analyzes driving data, you could save up to an additional 25% on your premium!
  • 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.
  • 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.

Let us be there for you when you need it most. With the TD Insurance Mobile App, you'll receive step-by-step guidance through the claims process, be able to take photographs, and track the status of your claim.

How Does Car Insurance Work in Quebec?

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

Car Insurance Eligibility and Restrictions

To be eligible for auto insurance, you (and all the 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.
