MEDIA RELEASE: CAA Insurance launches Auto Extension Insurance in ManitobaOctober 31, 20222 min read
New market expansions mean more Canadians have flexibility and choice from a trusted brand for their auto extension insurance needs.
CAA Insurance is proud to announce the expansion of its Auto Extension Insurance into Manitoba and is now the underwriter for the same coverage in Saskatchewan.
A top-up to the basic mandatory coverage available in the market, CAA Auto Extension Insurance allows policyholders more flexibility and choice to protect their vehicles and their family members
“Life is unpredictable, and sometimes, basic coverage just isn’t enough,” says Matthew Turack, President, CAA Insurance. “That’s why we set out to develop a product that meets individual needs and the changing lifestyles of people who live on the prairies.”
In Manitoba, CAA Insurance has entered the auto extension insurance market in the prairie province for the first time. The CAA Auto Extension Insurance product includes five new to-market coverages such as; Claim Forgiveness, Tire Pothole and Puncture Protection, Family Pet Protection, Emergency Expenses, and Personal Property coverage.
Other available coverage includes auto loss of use, replacement cost coverage, extra liability coverage, reduced deductibles, and more.
It is also the first time CAA Insurance is underwriting Auto Extension Insurance in Saskatchewan.
CAA’s Auto Extension Insurance does not replace the mandatory coverage found through provincial government insurers but instead is a way for people to enhance their policy and give them more peace of mind.
Policyholders may also be eligible for special discounts to save money including a CAA Member Discount, Winter Tire Discount, Multi-Vehicle Discount, and Multi-Line Discount.
“As one of Canada’s most trusted brands, customers can enjoy peace of mind knowing they have the extra protection they need at the best possible price from a company they can trust,” says Turack.
