Can I get a car insurance policy today?
If you have requested a quote and found a policy you are happy with – it is possible to have that policy begin immediately. When you request a quote, one of the things you can do is set the start date of the policy. If you want to pick a future day for it to become effective – you can. This is especially useful if you currently have a policy with a different provider and don’t’ want to renew.
How much is the difference between Liability Only and Full Coverage Car Insurance?
The cost difference between Liability Only and Full Coverage car insurance can be significant. The exact number is going to be dependent on your unique details, as such, there’s no way to provide a direct answer to this question. Often, it’s upwards of 50% less to take liability only instead of full coverage. But, you should consider many factors before choosing to go the Liability Only route. These factors include the value of your car, driving history, where you drive and more.

Do demerit points affect your auto insurance?
No, demerit points do not have any effect on your car insurance. Demerit points helps the Ministry of Transportation determine license renewals. Acquiring too many may also result in your license being suspended. But, the circumstances that you received your demerit points from will affect your car insurance. Speeding, DUI, and other driver’s tickets will negatively affect your car insurance premiums.
What is the difference between Full and Basic Coverage?
One of the most common questions we receive is what the difference between full and basic insurance coverage is. Both are worth considering when you’re looking for car insurance.
Basic coverage generally includes no more than two aspects of car insurance. The first is liability insurance, which is required by law in Canada. Every driver on the road MUST have liability coverage at a minimum. It is illegal to not have it. The second element of basic coverage is collision coverage. Collision coverage provides protection if your car is damaged. This is especially useful if you have an expensive car or one that is expensive to repair. If you do not have collision coverage, you are responsible for your car’s repairs out of pocket.
Full coverage includes both liability and collision coverage, for starters. It also includes coverage for things like vandalism and falling objects. You can also find flood, earthquake, fires, and hail as part of the coverage. Many drivers do not opt for full coverage if cost is a major consideration. But, while it is more expensive than basic coverage, it can provide you with peace of mind that no matter what happens, your car will be covered. Also, depending on where you live in Ontario, this type of coverage could be a better investment.
Why does isure need my driver’s license number?
Car insurance can only be sold to people with a valid driver’s license. In fact, because your auto insurance quote is tied to your driver’s license, you will need it to request a quote. You can rest assured that isure takes great care in protecting the data of our customers. Thus, using our online quoting system to get your car insurance quote is safe and secure.
