“Drivers may have to wait months for snow tire insurance discount.”
Ontario’s newly mandated premium discount for using snow tires, in effect as of January 1, 2016, does not require insurers to give the snow tire insurance discount immediately. Insurers can wait until the policy renewal, which could still be many months away, to apply the reduction.
We are happy to report that we have contacted all of our customers and have applied the snow tire discounts with Aviva, Intact & RSA immediately. Our customers did not have to wait for their refund.
