Drivers with clean records eligible for enhanced RBC Insurance option

    Accident Protection Option Now Available Before Policy Term Expires

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 19 /CNW/ - RBC Insurance is upgrading the Accident
Protection option available to Ontario drivers, which offers valuable savings
as a reward for maintaining a clean driving record.
    Upon purchasing the Accident Protection option, a driver's first "at
fault" accident will not affect their RBC Insurance policy. Effective
immediately, Ontario clients will no longer have to wait until it's time to
renew their auto insurance policies to purchase this additional protection -
this option will now be offered throughout the policy term as well as at
policy renewal. The Accident Protection option costs $50 per vehicle per year
and must be purchased prior to an at-fault accident.
    The extra protection is offered to qualified Ontario drivers who have not
had any at-fault accidents within the last six years, subject to certain
conditions. This option will also be available in several other Canadian
provinces over the coming months.
    "RBC Insurance is committed to providing the best possible options to our
clients, including rewards for achieving a clean driving record," says Stan
Seggie, president and CEO, RBC General Insurance Company. "We wanted to make
this offer so that clients who are prudent drivers aren't penalized just
because of one accident."
    RBC Insurance also offers a deductible rewards feature on its policies,
which reduces physical damage deductibles, over time, to as low as $0 if there
have not been any physical damage claims on the policy during the previous
