What is car insurance?

A car insurance policy is a contract between you and your vehicle insurance agency that is designed to provide your car with comprehensive coverage and a range of benefits that work to protect you against financial loss due to an accident—whether you are at fault or not— damage, or theft. In exchange for a driver paying monthly or yearly rates on vehicle insurance, their private car insurance provider agrees to pay any losses as outlined by the perils and limits in your coverage policy.

Why car insurance is as important as home insurance

With more and more vehicles on the road every year, driving from one location to the next can be quite dangerous. As a vehicle insurance provider in Abbotsford, BC, Canada we know that even if you have years of driving experience, obey all the traffic laws, and keep up with your car's regular maintenance, another driver, cyclist, pedestrian, or severe weather could cause damage or an accident that involves you and your passengers. While all drivers are required to have public car insurance coverage, a private automobile insurance provider can offer additional vehicle insurance coverage and benefits for your car at affordable rates. Get in touch with us today to learn how you can save money on vehicle insurance.

Types of insurance for your car in BC

Some of the different types of car insurance coverage policies available for a driver in BC, Canada include but are not limited to:

Liability Vehicle Insurance

Liability vehicle insurance works to provide your vehicle with coverage in the event that you are in an accident that is caused as a result of your actions. This type of car insurance coverage will cover the cost of medical bills and the cost of repairing damage to yours or someone else's property that was caused by the accident.

Car Accident/Collision Coverage Insurance

A vehicle collision coverage policy can help pay for damage to your car to be repaired or for the car to be replaced if it is involved in an accident with another car or if there is damage caused to the auto by an object, such as a falling fence or a lamp post, that lands on the car. It is important to note, however, that collision coverage will only cover up to the fair market value of the car and that you will be required to pay a deductible toward the coverage claim for the damage to the car.

Comprehensive Coverage Auto Insurance

Comprehensive coverage is a type of car insurance coverage policy that is designed to help cover damage to a car from natural disasters, fire, theft, and vandalism by paying for necessary repairs or the replacement of the car, depending on its market value of the auto and the perils outlined in your coverage policy.

Personal Injury Car Protection Insurance

Personal injury protection provides vehicle insurance coverage for your medical bills and the medical bills of your passengers, no matter who is at fault for causing the car accident.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Insurance

In the event that you are hit by a driver who does not have car insurance or they do not have enough liability coverage to pay for your resulting medical bills and to fix the damage to your auto, uninsured/underinsured motorist protection coverage can help pay for your medical bills and for repairs to your car.

Based on ICBC rules, what happens if someone else is driving my car and gets in an accident?

If someone who is not listed on your insurance causes a crash while driving your car, you will have to pay a one-time financial penalty. This penalty can only be avoided if you have Unlisted Driver Protection as a part of your insurance plan.
