BURNABY, BC, Jan. 12 /CNW/ - Using alternative forms of transportation is
not only good for the environment, it's also good for your pocketbook, thanks
to a new initiative from BCAA Insurance. The company's "Evenings and Weekends"
Auto Insurance plan - the first in B.C. - rewards those who leave their car
behind when commuting during the week by offering a 15 per cent discount on
collision premiums. The "Evenings and Weekends" discount is available only on
BCAA's Advantage Auto, member-exclusive optional auto insurance.
"Evenings and Weekends" Auto Insurance is designed for customers who
either work from home, or commute to work or school using an alternative form
of transportation, such as walking, cycling or public transit. Some other
insurance companies offer a discount for hybrid vehicles, but this coverage
applies regardless of the type of vehicle an insured drives.
"At BCAA Insurance, we're listening to customers who want
environmentally-friendly products and want to be rewarded for 'green'
behaviour," says BCAA Auto Insurance Product Manager, Heather Prizeman. "With
BCAA's discount, saving the environment and saving money can go hand in hand."
Insurance is based on the doctrine of "Utmost Good Faith", and any
"Evenings and Weekends" customers who risk driving between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.,
Monday to Friday, will be subject to a higher deductible if they are in an
at-fault collision during that time.
To celebrate the launch of BCAA's "Evenings and Weekends" Auto Insurance
and a range of eco-conscious home insurance options, BCAA is giving away a
fuel-efficient 2009 Toyota Prius hybrid. Visit www.bcaa.com/green for details
on how to win.
