What is the cheapest auto insurance I can get?
Here are a few tips on how to get discounts from your insurance company and save on your auto insurance premium:
- Bundle your auto and home insurance with the same provider Also, if you have more than one vehicle, including recreational vehicles (snowmobiles, quads, motorcycles or scooters) you can save money by bundling them all under the same insurance policy.
- Some insurance companies will also give you a discount if you have other products with them. For example, iA Auto and Home Insurance will offer you an additional discount if you have other iA Financial Group products, like life insurance or savings plans.
- A higher deductible can also reduce your insurance premium. However, in case of an accident, you would have to cover more of the cost yourself.
- If you have any anti-theft protection for your vehicle (markings, etc.) that could also reduce your auto insurance premium.
- There lots of discounts available: the hybrid vehicle discount, the good driving record discount, the good credit discount, etc.
Remember that cheaper insurance (or the cheapest) insurance, is not necessarily the best insurance. Make sure that your coverage is appropriate for your needs and you’ll be getting services that are up to your expectations in case you have to submit a claim.

How are auto insurance prices calculated?
Auto insurance premium rates are customized for each person insured. They’re determined based on each insurance company’s underwriting, which is based on the vehicle to be insured and the driver’s profile.
Other factors can also have an impact on the insurance premium such as the make, model and year of the vehicle you drive, whether it’s a new or used vehicle, whether it’s owned or leased, repair costs, etc.
Your insurance company will also take into consideration how you use the vehicle, your annual mileage, your driving record, where you live, past claims, etc., to determine your insurance premium.
Finally, the coverage you choose will also affect the cost. The deductible amount, added replacement cost coverage, civil liability amount and any other additional coverages you add will have an impact on the cost of your auto insurance.
