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

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.

Your questions about car insurance in Charlottetown, answered.

How much is car insurance in Charlottetown?

The average price of car insurance in P.E.I. is $816 per year, according to the Insurance Bureau of Canada.

But this average price of car insurance in Charlottetown, or the province, won’t be reflective of what you will end up paying for car insurance. The cost of car insurance is different for every driver — no one pays the average price.

When car insurance companies determine insurance premiums, they have to weigh a number of different factors including your age, sex, postal code, car type, and your driving experience. Your car insurance premium is highly dependent on your own unique makeup.

Car insurance calculators for Charlottetown don’t require enough information from you to providean accurate estimate of Charlottetown car insurance prices. The quotes an agent or broker provides you will look a lot different than the amount generated by the calculator.

We suggest looking beyond the average as a benchmark. You’re better off getting a car insurance quote. The prices you see on LowestRates.ca are what you will pay, unless your insurance agent or broker advises you to adjust your coverage.

Which Charlottetown postal code has the lowest average auto insurance premiums?

According to LowestRates.ca data, the Charlottetown postal code with the lowest average car insurance premiums is the C1A region, a large swath of the city. The University of Prince Edward Island, Red Shores Racetrack & Casino and the Belvedere Golf & Winter Club are all contained within this region.

Which Charlottetown postal code has the highest average car insurance premiums?

According to LowestRates.ca data, the Charlottetown postal code with the highest average car insurance premiums is the C1C region, located just east of the city’s downtown. It encompasses the neighbourhoods of East Royalty, Hillsborough Park, and Falconwood.

How do Charlottetown car insurance rates compare to other cities in P.E.I.?

To see how car insurance rates in neighbouring communities compares to the average price Charlottetown, we benchmarked the average price of car insurance from the following communities to the average in the capital:

  • Brackley 8% lower
  • Kensington 19% lower
  • Cornwall 27% lower

The larger the city, the higher the cost of car insurance. The increased urban density means there is more risk of accidents, vandalism, and thefts occurring. It follows that Charlottetown would have higher insurance costs.

However, that doesn’t mean that you’ll have to pay a lot for car insurance. Living in a capital city doesn’t mean you have to pay high car insurance rates.

Individual factors like your driving and insurance histories, age and gender play a big role in how much you pay for car insurance.

Where do I get the cheapest car insurance quotes in Charlottetown?

There isn’t one car insurance company that offers cheap auto insurance quotes to every Charlottetown driver that applies for a policy.

Car insurance premiums are highly customized products, tailored to your driving history.

To find cheap auto insurance rates in Charlottetown, we recommend focusing on your choice of car, and also maintaining a clean driving record.

Finding the cheapest auto insurance quotes in Charlottetown requires one more step: comparing car insurance quotes in advance of your policy renewal date.

There’s a lot of price variation in the Canadian car insurance market. We can help you find a car insurance company serving Charlottetown that can offer you a lower rate.

You can also always purchase facility insurance, which is a pool that is funded by Canadian insurance companies to offer coverage to high-risk drivers.

More tips on how to get cheap car insurance in Charlottetown

  • Charlottetown is small, but it has a transit system. Leaving the car at home and using transit to run errands can reduce your annual mileage, and therefore, your car insurance costs. T3 Transit (previously known as Charlottetown Transit) was founded in 2005 and now boasts 10 routes and transports 250,000 passengers every year.
  • Install snow tires. Prince Edward Island gets heavy snowfall. Snow tires will not only keep you safe, you’ll also be rewarded with a discount on your car insurance premium.
  • Try a telematics program. By giving your Charlottetown auto insurance company permission to monitor your driving habits via a smartphone app, you could reduce your annual car insurance premium by up to 25%.
