British Columbia

In British Columbia, you can purchase the following types of additional coverage from Canadian Direct: replacement cost, loss of use, extended equipment, rental protection, and travel protection.

It combines loss of use, travel protection, and rental coverage into one policy – but only if you are already carrying comprehensive and collision.

Saving Money With Canadian Direct Insurance

If you insure two or more vehicles with Canadian Direct then you are eligible for a 10% discount on your premiums. There are further savings available for people that bundle their home and auto insurance coverage. If you want to purchase comprehensive auto coverage then an anti-theft device could save you 10% on that policy. In most cases, an immobilizer will prevent vehicle theft so they are good to have. If you want to spend even less on your insurance coverage then you should consider raising your deductible. Finally, Canadian Direct Insurance offers a 10% discount for people that drive hybrids and Smart Cars.
