|Do you offer basic Autoplan coverage?|
|Yes, we most certainly do! Vancouver Island InsuranceCentres is authorized by ICBC as an approved Autoplan insurance broker, as listed on The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia website.|
|Am I required by ICBC to obtain more than basic Autoplan insurance for my vehicle?|
|All drivers in British Columbia must carry basic Autoplan insurance which includes up to $150,000 for medical and rehabilitation costs for each injured person, $200,000 for damages claimed by other drivers and $1 million per person if the at-fault motorist is not adequately insured. It does not include collision coverage or extended liability protection.|
|What are the benefits of extended or private auto insurance?|
|Extended coverage protects you for risks. In today's costly society, $1M in third party liability will fall short of many serious injury claims. Extended insurance can be tailor made to suit your needs and may include collision coverage, comprehensive coverage and protection for new vehicles. VIIC can also provide you with enhanced third party liability insurance and excess underinsured motorist protection to financially protect you and your family in the event of a claim.|
