Car Insurance In Yukon - What Do You Need to Know?

Auto insurance rates in Yukon are determined by a variety of factors. Three prominent ones are:

  • Insurance data - The geographic area in YT you live in can impact your auto insurance rates. For example, if you live in an area where there are minimal car insurance claims, then your auto insurance rates will be lower -- all things equal -- compared to if you resided in a place with frequent auto insurance claims.

  • Your personal driving history - The car insurer you choose for your auto insurance policy will verify your driving record. They need to know the amount of at-fault accidents you’ve had, as well as driving convictions. For both, the less you have, the better your rates can potentially be.

  • The type of auto insurance coverage you’re looking for - In YT, there are three degrees of auto insurance coverage for you to choose from:

  • Third Party Liability: As per Yukon law, this is the minimum car insurance coverage required.

    • Liability, Collision & Comprehensive: This is the maximum car insurance coverage available in YT. Many refer to this as full coverage.

    • Liability, Collision OR Comprehensive: If auto insurance was sized like parkas, this would be the medium. If you want more than the minimum but feel the maximum coverage is too much for your needs, you can choose to add one of collision or comprehensive to your liability coverage.

It is important to note that If you’re leasing or financing a vehicle, there’s a very high chance full coverage -- liability, collision & comprehensive coverage -- will be required on your vehicle, as per your leasing/financing agreement.

The best way to get cheap auto insurance in Yukon is by being eligible for car insurance discounts. Car insurers will offer discounts to people that they deem their ideal client. The largest discounts people can get relate to paying your bills always on time and being a good driver. Simply put, if you always pay your bills and you have a great driving record, auto insurers want you!

  • Good credit discount - This is, usually, the largest discount car insurers will offer. Whether you’re a good driver or a bad driver, as long as you always pay what is owed, auto insurers will want your business. When completing a quote on our website, you’ll be asked if we can do a soft hit of your credit score. This soft hit will not impact your credit rating. If the soft hit shows a credit score of 650+, you can be eligible for a car insurance discount of up to 20% off your annual auto insurance premium amount.

  • Claims-free discount - If you’re looking for a way to lower your car insurance premiums, be a good driver! Insurance companies will vary for how long their count an at-fault accident against you. If you’ve gone 6+ years, some insurers will offer a claims-free discount to you, which can save you up to 10% off your annual car insurance amount.

  • Conviction-free discount - If you’ve gone 3+ consecutive years with a traffic conviction (parking tickets & photo radar tickets don’t count), then you can be eligible for a convictions-free discount, which can lower your annual car insurance premium amount by up to 10%.

The best way to lower your car insurance rates as a new driver is to take, and pass, a certified driver’s training course.

New drivers have yet to build up a history of their driving, which is why rates tend to be a little higher for them -- because it’s unknown whether they’re going to be a safe driver or not. Statistics show new drivers, as a whole, tend to be more involved in accidents compared to more experienced drivers.

This is where passing a certified driver’s training course can really help a new driver, be it a teenage driver or someone new to Canada without proof of their driving history. Passing a certified driver’s training course increases your driver star rating by 2. Essentially, this is like adding 2 years of clean driving onto your driving record. Adding these ‘’2 years’’ of clean driving onto your record can lower your annual car insurance premium amount by up to 15%.

If you’re a new driver looking to get cheap car insurance rates, this is the best route to do so.

A variety of factors contribute to your unique car insurance rate. These factors include your geographic area, degree of coverage you wish to have on your vehicle and your personal car insurance history. Compared to the rest of Canada, especially more populous provinces like British Columbia, Ontario and Alberta, residents of Yukon pay relatively modest average car insurance premium amounts.

It is against the law to drive without car insurance on your vehicle. In Yukon, the minimum amount of coverage required on a vehicle you’re actively driving is third party liability. If you get pulled over and are found to be driving without insurance, then you’re at the mercy of Yukon law.

It depends on the degree of coverage you choose to have on your car. A more extensive policy, like full coverage, will cost more -- all things equal -- than third party liability only because you’re protected against more things.

There isn’t a set ‘’cheapest’’ car insurance company. Shopping the market and having insurers vie for your business is the best way to find your personal cheapest car insurance rate. This is why Surex has partnered with Aviva, Intact & RSA in Yukon -- arguably the top insurers in the the territory -- to get you multiple quotes and allow you to choose your cheapest auto insurance rate.

Yes. Insurers will allow you to choose how you pay your annual premium amount, be it with your credit card or by direct deposit.

Yes. In the event you get pulled over by a police officer, they will request to see your proof of insurance (pink cards). When you sign up for car insurance through Surex Direct, we will email you your temporary pink cards, which last for 30 days, for you to print and put in your vehicle. You will receive your real pink cards via mail from the insurer you choose to place your business with.
