Alternative Options for Auto Insurance in BC

| Uncategorized

vehicle insurance is mandatory in the province of British Columbia, and while ICBC offers fantastic coverage for all drivers, did you know that you have another choice for auto insurance in BC?

If you’re an experienced driver with limited or better yet no claims history, Private insurance with Westland Green could be for you!

In BC, all vehicles are required to carry ICBC Basic Auto Insurance. Check out our Car Insurance 101 post for more information on this coverage. However, it is important to remember that basic Auto Insurance does not cover Extended Third Party Liability, Collision or Comprehensive coverages. Further, it does not offer extended coverage benefits such as lock re-keying, destination assistance or rental vehicle coverage.  With Westland Green, you can purchase all of these coverages in one convenient, competitively priced package.

Private Auto insurance with Westland Green is available with two package options: Greenshield and Greenshield+. Both are fantastic options backed by 24/7 claims service, a preferred vendor work guarantee, convenient monthly payment options as well as cost savings for experienced drivers with minimal or no claims history.

Further to this, here is a breakdown of some highlights of each package:

Coverages Greenshield Greenshield+
