You've decided to take a trip by car with your friend. It's been a dream of yours to drive across Canada,
from east to west. But you've never given a thought to insurance.
Before you hit the road, call your agent or broker. You should check whether you have adequate coverage under your policy.
It may be advisable to increase your civil liability coverage under your policy. Coverage of $2 million could protect
you better in case of an accident. Especially in the U.S., where lawsuits are no trifling matter!
Planning on driving elsewhere in the world? No matter your destination, you must buy insurance from the car rental company.
Damage to vehicles not owned by the insured (Endorsement 27).
If you rent or borrow a car in Canada or the U.S., this endorsement provides coverage should you damage the vehicle.
The coverage offered is often the same as the coverage you have for your own car. Most of the time, it's more advantageous
than the insurance offered by the car rental company.
