What can I do to get cheap car insurance in Burlington?

It's easy — if you know how. Here are some of the best ways to lower your auto insurance premiums:

Shop around

We'll show you the most competitive rates from all the top insurers. Now you can compare quotes all in one place.

Buy the right coverage

Avoiding extra frills in your policy and paying for only the coverage you need will lower your premiums.

Drive responsibly

Your driving record impacts your rate. Fewer infractions and fines equals cheaper insurance.

Pay on time

Prompt payments can save you money on late fees and lower your premiums. Insurers love a good customer.

Bundle up

Adding a house, motorcycle, RV, or other type of insurance policy to your car insurance plan can lower your rates.

Be safe, not sorry

Safety features like winter tires and alarm systems can help reduce your insurance premium.

Stick with one insurer

Most auto insurance companies give special discounts to customers who stay with them for a number of years.

Take a course

A defensive driving course makes you a better driver and can significantly reduce your car insurance premiums.

Keep driving

The math is clear: more experience on the road equals lower car insurance premiums. Young drivers almost universally pay higher rates for car insurance. While it’s difficult for new drivers to secure cheap car insurance rates, you may be able to lower your rates by maintaining good grades and attending driving school.

Look at location

Where you drive affects your premiums. Some areas are associated with higher rates of car accidents and theft.

Choose the right car

Cars with high crash-test scores, low theft ratings, and less powerful engines tend to have cheaper insurance rates.

Track your driving

With a usage-based car insurance policy, you can turn your low-risk driving habits into lower premiums.

  • North York

Car insurance in Burlington for seniors

Adults between the ages of 50 and 70 can get cheap auto insurance in Burlington. For various reasons, the cost of car insurance declines for the average driver as they get older. Chances are you've got an extended history of being insured and you would possibly even have bundled your home policy with an equivalent provider of your auto insurance.

Also, if you’re retired and live in Ontario, you might be eligible for a 5% to 15% discount on your premium for your accident benefits coverage.

After age 70, you might see your rate begin to increase because people in this age group are statistically more likely to file a claim. If you do see your rates start to creep up, it's time to shop around for new automobile insurance in Burlington.

It can be challenging for new drivers to find cheap car insurance in Burlington. Young people pay, on average, the highest insurance premiums of any demographic.

The good news is there are ways to find affordable car insurance in Burlington.

  • Start by comparing auto insurance quotes in Burlington. You can do this by using a rate comparison website like ours.
  • If you complete the Young Drivers of Canada program, you may be eligible for discounted insurance. Make sure you get a certificate of completion to show to a Burlington car insurance company. It will lower your rate.
  • When you’re in school (high school or post-secondary), some auto insurance companies will even provide discounts to students who maintain high grades.
  • Join a telematics program. Installing a telematics device in your car, or using an app that tracks your driving habits, can earn you a discount of up to 25% on your auto insurance.
  • Avoid getting your own car if you can. Instead, ask to be listed as the secondary driver of your parents’ car.

Last but not least, don’t forget to compare auto insurance rates in Burlington. This will help you secure the best coverage based on your needs.

There are some Burlington insurance companies that will insure high-risk drivers, but it’s possible that you will be turned away.

Unfortunately, facility premiums are much higher than traditional premiums.

Car insurance in Burlington for new immigrants

If you recently immigrated to Ontario, you have 60 days to trade in the licence from the country you emigrated from and obtain an Ontario driver’s licence and insurance.

More tips on how to reduce your Burlington car insurance premiums.

  • Disobeying road signs or speed limits can result in traffic tickets, which will raise your premiums. Paletta Lakefront Park is home to the Paletta Mansion, a popular venue for weddings. Drivers, be aware that the roads surrounding this park are extra busy during wedding season.
  • Lowering your annual mileage by taking public transit will reduce your car insurance premiums. There's a myth that there’s no public transit in Burlington. In reality, Burlington Transit services the community and connects to the Hamilton and Oakville public transit systems. There are also three Burlington stops along the Lakeshore West GO Train line.
  • Traffic can get congested on the Skyway Bridge or, if there's a serious accident, the Skyway can be blocked off. That's why you need to be aware of alternate routes, especially if you travel north or south from Burlington. There's a correlation between the amount of time you spend driving and the likelihood of you being involved in an accident. If you're commuting from Burlington, increasing your accident benefit may be a good idea. It will raise your premium, but it could save you a lot of money in the long run.
