null 8 ways to save on your car insurance

1. Review and update your policy regularly

Have your circumstances changed? Are your children grown and gone? Do you now work closer to home? It might be time to make changes.

2. Drive carefully

It may be a cliché, but being a careful driver really is the best way to avoid an accident. If you’re distracted at the wheel, you’re compromising your safety and other people’s.

Ajusto uses your smartphone's sensors to analyze your driving behaviour and habits to offer you a more personalized premium.

At the end of the day, avoiding claims and driving tickets is key to keeping your car insurance costs as low as possible.

3. Consider a usage-based driving program

When you sign up for a usage-based driving program like The Personal’s Ajusto® program*, you could save on your auto insurance premium for having good driving habits.

Ajusto uses your smarphone's sensors to analyze your driving behaviour and habits to offer you a more personalized premium.

4. Insure all your vehicles with the same company

The more vehicles you insure, the more money stays in your pocket thanks to multi-insurance-savings.

5. Bundle your home and auto insurance

Combining your auto and home insurance can significantly reduce your premiums.

6. Choose a vehicle that is less likely to be stolen

If you’re looking to buy a new vehicle, remember that certain models are stolen a lot more than others. So when you’ve narrowed it down to a few models, you can go to our website and quickly compare insurance premiums for different vehicles to see which vehicle is cheaper to insure. The answer could help you make your final decision. And you could do it anywhere anytime if you are insured with us with our Online Services.

7. Increase your deductibles

The principle is simple: the higher your deductible, the lower your premium. Remember, your deductible is the amount you are required to pay in the event of a claim, so you want to make sure you can pay that deductible in case of an accident.

8. Adjust coverage on older vehicles

If your car is more than 10 years old, you could re-think your coverage.

For instance, you could insure your car with just the mandatory liability coverage, which covers damage or injury to others. Just remember that you’ll have to pay the full cost of repairs to your car if, for example, you have an at-fault accident or your car is vandalized.

But don’t make a decision too hastily. Talk it over with your insurance provider to be sure you fully understand what would happen if you had a car accident.
