What is a fleet?
A fleet is 5 or more vehicles (trailers do not count towards eligibility, but can be included and receive a discount after the fleet is established) that are registered and/or leased to a single individual or company. Fleets with 5 to 19 vehicles have the option to enroll in a fleetplan, fleets of 20 or more vehicles are required to enroll.
What are the benefits of enrolling in ICBC's Fleet Plan?
- Higher premium discounts – up to 63%
- Fleet Discounts for trailers
- Fleet policies expire at the same time and always at month end, making administration easier
- Access to quarterly and four-year claims reports
- No requirement to declare principal operators or location addresses
- Single annual or monthly premium payment for all vehicles
How are fleet discounts calculated?
Fleet premium discounts are based on the cost of your claims, as opposed to when you insure a vehicle individually, where the quantity of claims matters.
ICBC calculates your fleet discount using your adjusted claims cost and your gross premium to create a “fleet loss ratio percentage.” Claims costs are adjusted by capping them at a certain limit; most claims are capped at $7,500 per coverage but this can change depending on a particular fleet’s experience. The loss ratio is calculated using the following formula:
Adjusted Claims Cost ÷ Gross Premium = Loss Ratio Percentage
The Loss Ratio Percentage is then rounded up and deducted from the maximum possible discount of 63%; the resulting amount is the fleet discount for the year. For example:
$10,400 ÷ $36,400 = 28.57% Loss Ratio
Rounding up 28.57% gives you 29%, which you deduct from 63% to get the annual fleet discount: 34%
