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

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 equal 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 another 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.

More tips on reducing your car insurance premiums in Peterborough

  • Install snow tires. Peterborough gets much more snow than towns near Hwy. 401 do, so remember to equip your vehicle with tires that have the proper tread. Not only will this help keep you safe, but it will also net you a winter tire discount from your car insurance company.
  • Be mindful of the reduced speed limit on roads nearby schools and universities.  Avoiding accidents by practicing defensive driving will help keep your car insurance low.
  • As you age, you can expect to see your car insurance premiums shrink. You can accelerate the process by signing up for a telematics program, which gives your car insurance company has the ability to monitor your driving habits via a smartphone app. You'll get a small discount upfront on your annual premium when you sign up plus another discount at renewal. 
  • Another note on safe driving in Peterborough: take extra care on those one-way streets. Like many mid-sized Ontario towns, Peterborough's main streets are one-way. George Street runs south and Water Street runs north. Be careful when you enter and exit these one-way streets and look out for drivers who aren't familiar with them.
