Minimum Coverage in Saskatchewan
If you are planning to insure a private passenger vehicle in the province then you are required to carry at least $200,000 in liability protection, as well as personal injury coverage. There will be a $700 deductible for vehicle damage under this basic policy. Almost all insurance professionals will suggest that you increase your third-party liability coverage though.
SGI CANADA Auto Pak
If $700 is too high for your deductible then you can purchase extended car insurance. The SGI CANADA Auto Pak program will lower your deductible to $100. This coverage can also increase your liability coverage so that you can protect yourself against losses that you might be responsible for, should you get in an accident. SGI CANADA offers special discounts for people that haven’t had a claim in five or more years. You might also be able to upgrade your policy without having to pay extra premiums. They also have a 5% discount for insuring more than one vehicle with SGI.
