How to get the cheapest home insurance quote

Getting insurance for your home is easier than you think. To get the lowest rate possible, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada recommends following these steps when shopping for home insurance.

Compare home insurance quotes from various providers.

Ask your broker or agent about bundling your home and car insurance policies.

Ask your broker or agent about which discounts you qualify for.

You might be able to further reduce your by increasing your deductible (the amount you pay toward a claim before your insurance kicks in) and by offering to pay your insurance bill annually instead of monthly.

Increasing your deductible is a great way to save on home insurance in the short term, just make sure you have money reserved for this purpose. Focusing on finding cheap quotes isn’t always a good idea. Having the right amount of coverage — now that should always be the goal.

Factors that determine your home insurance quote

Your home insurance policy will be customized to suit your needs and the property you’re insuring.

Home insurance premiums are determined by dwelling type (is it a single-detached home, a house with a basement tenant suite, or a condo?). Insurance companies also try to predict the kind and size of claim you might make in the future.

Here are some of the criteria insurance companies look at when calculating your premium.

  • The square footage of your home.
  • Contents and quality of construction.
  • The location of your home.
  • Distance to a fire hydrant.
  • Your insurance claims history.
  • The age of your roof.
  • Your home’s plumbing.
  • Your home’s electrical system.

The La Capitale home insurance advantage.

Discounts

La Capitale offers a number of discounts and special programs to help you get the most out of your insurance. The company highlights on its website that the average consumer saves $425 by bundling their home, auto or leisure vehicle insurance together. La Capitale also offers free coverage to protect your professional materials (such as tablets and cameras). Finally, the insurance company touts the “best water damage coverage on the market”, offering a number of add ons such as sewer backup and flood damage protection.

Below, we take a closer look at what you can get with La Capitale:

  • Water leakage detector: You can get a discount on your home insurance if you equip this valve that automatically closes if a leakage is detected.
  • Bundling discount: This will save you money if you also have a vehicle (this can be a car, SUV or a leisure vehicle like an RV).
  • Loyalty discounts: You are eligible for discounts and perks as part of La Capitale’s loyalty program, which rewards you the longer you remain a client with the company (privileges start at day one, with more rewards coming after three, five, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years). You get things like free insurance coverages, free legal and psychological assistance and deductible reductions on your home, auto, and recreational vehicles. Also, if you have multiple people insured with La Capitale, everyone gets the same loyalty perks available to the person who’s been insured the longest. So if your daughter has been insured for three years, but your husband for 15, then your daughter has access to all the perks your husband does. That’s good news, because perks continue to get better the longer you’re insured.

Special programs

La Capitale home insurance also offers some special programs that you can take advantage of.

Pay a single deductible - If you’re hit with a loss on two or more items you insure with La Capitale, you only have to pay a single deductible.

Free coverage for professional materials - Items such as cameras, computers, tablets, tools and books are all eligible for free coverage under your home insurance policy as part of La Capitale’s “professional materials” perk.

Claim forgiveness coverage - For as little as a few dollars a month, you can get claims forgiveness on your insurance, which will prevent your insurance rates from going up if you make up to two claims in a five year period.

Legal access insurance - This provides you access to one of La Capitale’s lawyers to get assistance with legal questions.

Is there an app?

Yes. You can download the La Capitale app on Google and Apple devices. The app gives you access to your Client Centre, where you can update your information or view your home or auto insurance documents.
