The best car insurance policy for your Honda depends on the model you’re driving as well as your own personal circumstances. For instance, you’ll likely want to purchase more insurance for a brand new Acura (the luxury arm of Honda) as opposed to a used Honda Civic. Here’s some more information about what type of car insurance you need, and some additional coverages you may want.
In order to drive a vehicle, all Canadians must carry a basic level of third-party liability insurance. The required benefit may change depending on the province you live in.
Liability coverage protects you from insurance and legal costs if you injure another person in a collision. Accident benefits coverage, which is contained within third-party liability insurance, pays for your medical costs and provides you with replacement income if you are injured.
Based on your needs, you might want to add some of these coverages to your policy:
Collision insurance - This coverage provides compensation to be put towards a new car if yours is damaged in an accident.
Comprehensive insurance - This optional coverage pays for losses or damage to your car caused by things other than a collision: a fallen tree, a hail storm, or vandalism, for instance.
Extra car insurance can be worth purchasing if your car is a newer model. If it would be too expensive to pay for extensive repairs or to replace your car by paying out-of-pocket, extra insurance may be worth it.
Just remember that adding coverage will increase your auto insurance bill — but in some cases, that isn’t always a bad thing.
