Pay As You Go Car Insurance Coming This Summer

A recent announcement from CAA Insurance Company could change the rules of the insurance game for drivers. The company has  revealed details of its new pay-as-you-go insurance plan for Ontario drivers, which is the first of its kind in Canada. The new program is powered by a telematics device that is plugged into the vehicle and connects to a mobile app or web portal. The app allows motorists to track how much they are driving and to pay for auto insurance based on that mileage. Motorists start with a base rate and are charged everyone thousand kilometres. According to CAA, the MyPace plan is ideal for the Monday to Friday public transit commuter who leaves their car at home, someone retired who likes to visit family on weekends or motorists that drive under 9,000 kilometres per year due to their overall lifestyle. The program will be available in Ontario later this summer. (The Canadian Press)
