Insurance for New Driver

I am helping a new immigrant/new driver to get insurance. Female, 30 years old, east GTA area. Looking for recommendations. Are companies such as Kanetix and lowestraces.ca the best way to get rates from several companies?

Thanks!

Research different rates for different vehicles as well. 2 very similar vehicles can have insurance rates of over $500 difference within the same company. What you may think you are saving on fuel savings, or purchase price can be outweighed by different premiums

those online quote sites are a good source starter. You will still have to call in to get the 'REAL' premium figures.

You should also expand your quote search by getting some insurance brokers involved as they will shop the best rates for you.

You can get insurance quotes online through the insurance company's websites. I would start there.

Did this individual have auto insurance abroad and can they prove it? If so, it's best to speak with a broker who will work with you to get that experience recognized as well as it is a major rating factor. Online quoting tools, typically quote based on Canadian and US driving experience only.

I usually find belairdirect pretty reasonable for new drivers but haven't checked in quite a while, it won't be too cheap if I remember it can range from 230-400/mth depending on the vehicle.

Also consider Sonnet, which targets new drivers.

Belair is always expensive for me, also same for TD.

Lowest I've had is from Johnson Insurance (Unifund)
