Other popular auto insurance coverages
When renewing your insurance, you notice that your premium has increased because of an accident. With claim forgiveness, you avoid premium increases resulting from one or even two auto claims.
Travel costs (Q.E.F. or endorsement No. 20A)
This protection, useful in the event of an accident that deprives you of your vehicle for several days, covers automobile rental costs or public transportation or taxi expenses. Additional accommodation expenses are also covered if the accident occurs far from home.
Borrowed or short-term rented car (Q.E.F. or endorsement No. 27)
This protection covers damage to a borrowed or short-term rental vehicle. It often costs less than the insurance offered by the lessor. In your auto insurance contract, search for "Civil liability resulting from damage caused to vehicles of which the named insured is not owner".
Change to Indemnity (Q.E.F. or endorsement Nos. 43A and 43E)
This coverage, better known as “Replacement Value” coverage, is an interesting option if you have a new vehicle. It allows you to obtain a waiver of depreciation in the event of the total loss of your vehicle.
In the event of a partial loss, the insurer uses new parts to replace damaged parts that cannot be repaired.
In the event of a total loss, the indemnity corresponds to the cost of a new vehicle with the same features as those of the insured vehicle.
Purchase price option for used cars (Q.E.F. or endorsement No. 43D)
In the event of a total loss, this optional coverage ensures that you will be compensated based on the price paid for your new used car, not considering depreciation.
Your questions about Auto insurance
If I sell my car to another person, what can I do to limit my liability?
It's important to have a written contract. Make sure you include the following in the document:
- your name and that of the buyer
- the make and model, the year of manufacture, the mileage and the serial number of the vehicle
- information on repairs carried out or known problems
- a statement to the effect that the sale is being made with no guarantee against hidden defects or that the vehicle is being bought at the buyer's own risk.
Am I covered in the event of an accident that occurs when I have loaned my car to my child or a friend?
You can lend your car to anyone who has a valid driver's licence. If this person has an accident while driving your car, you will receive compensation based on the coverage provided under your car insurance contract. Someone frequently drives your car? Contact your insurer to make sure you’re properly covered!
What impact does the Automobile Claims Database (FCSA) have on the calculation of my Auto insurance premium?
The Automobile Claims Database catalogues all automobile losses for the last six years, whether or not a claim is filed. It allows your insurer to determine the risk that you represent and establish your premium accordingly.
Why does my Auto insurer want to access my credit information?
One of the key principles of insurance resides in finding the right balance, meaning the premium paid must reflect the risk to be insured. To determine the risk, and the car insurance premium amount to be paid, your insurer will look at different criteria, including your credit information.
