null Ways to reduce your car and home insurance premiums

Bundle your policies

If you haven’t already done it, it’s well worth insuring your cars and recreational vehicles (like motorcycles, snowmobiles and campers), as well as your home and cottage with the same insurance company. Bundling all your policies can help you save on your premiums.

Use your BONUSDOLLARS® to pay your car or home policy

If you have a Desjardins credit card, find out how you can use your BONUSDOLLARS towards your insurance premium. It’s a great way to cut your costs.

Update your car insurance

  • Increase your deductibles. You can save on your premium by increasing your deductibles for Collision and upset and All perils other than collision or upset. But before you make any changes, make sure you’d be comfortable paying that amount in the event of a claim.
  • Get a certified security system. If your car has a tracking system, you could save on your insurance, no matter how old your car is.
  • Insure all your vehicles with us. You could save up to 15% on your car insurance premium with our Multi-Vehicle Savings. Plus, you’ll get a 50% discount on the Worry-Free Option® an insurance package of our most popular coverages.
  • Get more discounts. Check out all our auto insurance savings and call us to see if you’re eligible.

Shopping for a new car?

  • Choose a model with a lower insurance rate. Compare rates for different models to choose one that has a lower insurance rate.
  • Choose a car with more affordable repairs. It costs less to repair a standard car than a luxury model. Repair costs could also impact your insurance premium.
  • Consider a hybrid or electric vehicle. On top of government incentives and gas savings, you could take advantage of our EcoSavings.

Update your home insurance

  • Review your coverage. It’s worth letting your insurance company know if you’ve made changes like re-roofing your home. It could save you money on your premium.
  • Increase your deductible. If you’re comfortable paying more out of pocket in an insurance claim, you could increase your deductible and reduce your home insurance costs.
  • Insure your home and your car with us. You could save on your home insurance with our Double Contract Savings and get our Worry-Free Option free of charge.
  • Has someone in your home quit smoking? Let us know! A smoke-free home reduces the risk of a fire, and it lowers your insurance premium. 
  • Get more discounts. Check out our other home insurance savings and call us to see if you’re eligible.
