Glass Insurance - Should I get it?

By Jake McCoy on Nov 15, 2022 10:15:00 AM

Vehicle insurance can cover many different types of damages or losses. One of the items that your auto insurance will not likely cover is your automotive glass. Your windshield, side windows, back glass, and a sun/moon roof on your vehicle are all components that could be damaged and not have coverage. For this very reason, you can purchase a supplemental glass insurance policy to cover chips, cracks, or broken glass on your car.

Why Use Premium Gas?

By Rob Stevenson on Jul 27, 2018 11:02:51 AM

At my local gas station this morning, regular gas was selling for $1.24/L and premium was 14¢ more expensive at $1.36/L. That's a whopping $8.40 difference if I were to fill my 60L tank. Not as much as I expected actually, but I will be putting regular gas in my car anyways. So why spend the extra $8?

How the Make of Your Car Affects Your Car Insurance

By Rob Marusin on Aug 28, 2012 10:00:00 AM

Your neighbour drives a BMV M Roadster, while you get around in a sporty 2000 Honda Civic SiR. You both have clean driving records and travel the same distance to work. The BMV is worth more than the Civic, and then the shock comes—you’re paying more for auto insurance. Consumers are left asking why—well, the answer is clear.

Every vehicle make, model and year available in Canada is rated according to the Canadian Loss Experience Automobile Rating (CLEAR) system. This rating system assesses each type of vehicle based on expected claims frequency and cost, and the likelihood the vehicle will be stolen. This assists in calculating insurance rates—the lower the claims risk, the lower the rates, and the higher the claims risk, the higher the rates.
