Travel Insurance Tips!

By | Travel Insurance | No Comments


This winter in Ontario has to be the most precarious one yet with all the mix of rain, ice and snow!  No wonder people head off for warmer temperatures for a reprieve.  Or maybe you like the snow and head off elsewhere outside of Ontario to hit the ski slopes!  If you are travelling out of province, seriously consider purchasing travel insurance, even within Canada as your provincial insurance may not cover all the costs entirely.

With Travel Insurance you can purchase coverage for :


Trip Cancellation, delays, and interruption

Lost or delayed luggage

Extreme Sports/high-risk activities (that are otherwise excluded)

Here are seven tips on travel insurance from Secureglobe.

Winter Tire Discount

Have you installed winter tires on your vehicle?  Be sure you contact us to see if you qualify for  Winter Tire Discount on your automobile insurance.

The discount is only for Winter Tires.  All Weather Tires, Snow and Mud tires do not qualify, regardless if they have the Winter Tire Symbol.

Also, the discount does not qualify if the winter tires are on all year. (not advisable)

They must be installed and then removed for the appropriate season, and all four wheels must be equipped with Winter Tires.

Give our office a call to see if you qualify for the Winter Tire Discount.
