Types of car insurance coverage
No matter what kind of vehicle you are insuring you can choose various levels of coverage, depending on how much protection you want for your car insurance:
- Collision and Upset coverage protects you from costs to repair damage to your vehicle caused by impact with another vehicle or an object such as a guardrail.
- "Coverage against perils other than collision or upset", previously called Comprehensive, protects you from costs to repair damage to your vehicle from unexpected situations such as fire, theft, vandalism or natural disasters.
- All Perils protection combines both of the above coverages.
- Specific Perils coverage protects your vehicle only against specific dangers, such as theft or attempted theft, some natural disasters, riots or civil disturbances.
Car Insurance Coverage Based on Your Vehicle
Car insurance liability coverage is mandatory for driving in Canada. Beyond that, there are other options to consider for your ideal coverage.
The type of vehicle you drive is one factor that determines what type of car insurance you need.
If you own a brand new car, for example, you may want your insurance policy to cover the full replacement cost in the event of an accident.
Drive worry-free, with additional auto insurance protection
If you have a good driving record, it’s only natural that you want to protect it. Do you also want to be able to count on a roadside assistance service in case of trouble along the way? Safeguard your good record and drive worry-free with My auto privilege®. This combination of two coverages adds up to peace of mind and confidence on the road.
- Good Driving Record Protection guarantees that your Intact Insurance premium will not increase as a result of being at fault in one or even two accidents over a five-year period.
- Roadside assistance* from Intact Insurance entitles you to four service calls per year. Eligible services include towing your vehicle (up to 50 kilometres), jump-starting your battery, unlocking your doors, gas delivery, changing a flat tire, and pulling your vehicle out of mud. It’s comforting to head out on the road knowing that you can call for help if something goes wrong.
Do you only need one of these coverages? No problem: these features are packaged in My auto privilege® but they are also available separately.
