Factors that affect auto insurance costs in Alberta.
Car insurance premiums are determined by many factors. Here are some to keep in mind when getting an insurance quote.
Young drivers may pay higher premiums because they have less experience and, tend to fall into a high-risk age category.
Your vehicle’s make, model and year impact how much you pay for insurance. Other factors include the cost to replace parts and how likely it is your car will be stolen.
What you use your vehicle for and how often you’re behind the wheel can be a contributing factor in setting car insurance premiums.
How much experience you have on the road and your driving record help determine what you'll pay for insurance. Drivers with clean records typically enjoy lower premiums.

There are several things you can do to help lower your car insurance costs:
Work on your driving record
Here's an easy and effective way to bring down your insurance costs: build a consistent accident and conviction-free track record with an insurance company.
Choose your automobile wisely
We recommend you do your research before you invest in a new car. Read consumer reports and check with your insurance company to find out which cars tend to be targets for theft and vandalism. If you purchase a car with a high theft rate, your premium could be higher.
Adjust how you use your car
By adjusting the way you use your vehicle, you could bring down the cost of your insurance rates. If you live in a metropolitan area: can you take the subway, train or bus to work? Has your job changed, or have you moved recently? Do you use your automobile to drive a short distance to work? Does your vehicle get used for low annual kilometers?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be entitled to lower insurance costs.
Choose a higher deductible
If you choose a higher deductible up front, in many cases your premiums will be lower.
Telematics-powered car insurance is a form of policy in which insurance companies rely on in-car tracking devices to monitor your driving habits and tendencies. This can earn you discounts based on your safe driving habits.
Using a free app downloaded to your smartphone, this usage-based insurance program securely gathers information about your driving. It monitors things such as speeding, the time of day you travel, hard braking, rapid acceleration, and distracted driving. The safer you drive, the more you benefit! Upon renewal, your personalized premium can be lower or higher depending on your driving behaviour. The app also offers you driving insights and tips than can help you save. You’re in control!

A deductible is the amount you agree to pay if you have to make a car insurance claim.
If you lend your car to someone and they get into an accident, your car insurance may extend to other drivers as long as you gave them permission to drive it.
Regular or frequent drivers of your car must be added as drivers to your insurance policy in order to be covered.
