The Personal will be offering a widespread refund to their auto insurance clients. The Personal will give back to its client between 25% and 40% of the premium that they pay for one month, depending on the reality of each province, for a total amount up to $28 Million collectively. Furthermore, the great news is that no action is required to receive the refund – clients will automatically receive it through their usual payment method. Over the next few weeks, all eligible insured clients will be informed, by email, of the amount that they will receive.
In an effort to support its clients, The Personal is offering an auto insurance premium discount to clients who are staying at home. As people are currently driving their vehicles less, The Personal wants to reflect this situation, offering this discount to clients whose commuting habits have significantly changed and who are only using their vehicles for essential trips to such places as the pharmacy or grocery store. This discount is open to people who, for example, are now working from home or have lost their job, or to anyone who is self-isolating. The discount will be calculated over a three-month period and will be in proportion to the annual mileage declared on their insurance contract. Eligible clients who are interested in receiving this rebate should apply at by May 31 at https://www.thepersonal.com/. This news can be found on our dedicated landing page at https://www.thepersonal.com/covid-19-en
In addition, using a personal vehicle for delivery purposes will be temporarily covered under auto insurance policies for The Personal clients. No additional insurance premium will be required, whether someone is doing the deliveries as a volunteer or as an employee of a restaurant, pharmacy or grocery store. No action is required; this relief measure automatically applies to all auto insurance policyholders. This coverage does not apply to people who offer delivery services through third party apps and services like UberEats, Skip the Dishes or DoorDash.
As well, since the current situation is forcing many people to work from home, The Personal has decided to temporarily raise the coverage limit under home insurance contracts for goods used to work from home (e.g., ergonomic chair, computer equipment) to $10,000. No action is required; this additional coverage automatically applies to all home insurance policyholders.
These relief measures are on top of those previously announced. For example, adding liability coverage for a borrowed or rented vehicle at no extra charge for auto insurance policyholders returning early from the US in a rental car. As well, clients who are experiencing financial difficulties because of COVID-19 may continue to receive insurance premium payment relief measures. Each situation will be handled on a case by case basis.
In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to assure you that we are here for you. For more information, we invite you to visit our dedicated web page at thepersonal.com/covid-19
