Feel confident knowing your car and your family are properly protected.
Auto Insurance Policies That Fit Your Life
At Dumfries Mutual Insurance, we offer both the mandatory coverages, as required by the province of Ontario, and a selection of enhanced coverages to make sure that you are adequately protected.
The mandatory coverages for auto insurance in Ontario include:
- Third-Party Liability Coverage
This protects you, and your family, in the event of an accident where someone is injured or killed, or their property is damaged and it was your fault. It also protects against lawsuits and claims.
- Direct Compensation
This covers damage to your vehicle or its contents in the event of an accident that was caused by someone else. This coverage only applies in the province of Ontario.
- Uninsured Automobile Coverage
This protects you and your family if there is damage to your vehicle or you are injured or killed by an unidentified driver or an uninsured motorist.
- Accident Benefit Coverage
This provides you and your family with supplemental medical care and income replacement benefits, in the event that you are injured in an accident, regardless of who is at fault.
There are occasions where these basic, required coverages are simply not enough to adequately protect your unique needs or lifestyle. Speak with your agent about coverage increases to ensure that you are sufficiently protected.
Supplemental Auto Insurance Coverages
In addition to the standard coverages, we offer a range of supplemental coverages to fit your needs.
Additional auto insurance coverages include:
- Optional Accident Benefits
To enhance medical care options in the event of an accident.
- Emergency Road Service
To protect you in the event of a breakdown, lock-out, tire change, and more.
- Protection Plus
To protect the driving record of qualified drivers following an at fault accident.
- Transportation Replacement
To provide a replacement vehicle for your use, when your vehicle is out of service because of an insured loss.
- Rental Vehicles Liability Insurance
To provide coverage for rental vehicles, so you no longer have to buy coverage sold by a rental car company.
- ATV, Off-Road Vehicle, & Snowmobile Insurance
To protect your off-road vehicles in summer and winter. Offered to clients who bundle with home or auto.
Our experienced team of insurance agents will assist you in selecting the best coverages for your lifestyle, while ensuring that you are receiving the best value.
We’re A Different Type of Insurance Provider
Many companies offer auto insurance in Ontario, but not many of them have travelled the same roads or have roots in the same hometowns. Dumfries is a mutual auto insurance provider, which means that we do things differently from the large, corporate insurers.
We are proud to be a 100% Canadian-owned company, owned solely by its policyholders, and backed by one of the world’s most financially secure insurance networks: 40 mutual companies, known as Ontario Mutuals, providing strength, stability, and expertise.
When you become a policyholder with Dumfries, you become a member owner of the company. This means:
- You have a voice.
When you purchase an insurance policy with us, you’re more than a policyholder. You become a member of our company and your vote counts when important decisions are being made.
- You support your local community.
When you pay your premiums, the money goes towards employing your neighbours, supporting the local economy, and investing in local projects.
- You are treated with respect.
When you need assistance, you will receive help from a caring and responsive team of professionals. You will never have to deal with a call centre.
- You will receive great rates.
When you have a policy with Dumfries you are supporting the not-for-profit company, Ontario Mutuals. You can rest assured that your premiums are not going to a select group of shareholders.
The spirit behind mutual insurance is supportive and helpful. It’s about looking out for the greater good — and that’s what makes us different.
