Testimonials

This idea is long overdue. Insurance, welcome to the 21st century!


Corey, 59, Alberta

It’s great having the auto insurance cards for my car and motorcycle in my digital wallet – no checking to make sure I have the right one anymore!


Jennifer, 41, Nova Scotia

When my insurance provider offered to send my policy documents electronically, of course I said yes. Who needs more paper? I might finally be able to get rid of my filing cabinet.


James, 34, British Columbia

So easy. All I had to do was give my insurance provider my email address. Why would anyone want the paper copy when this is available?


Aaron, 28, Quebec

The convenience is outstanding. It’s so easy to add the auto insurance card in my phone’s digital wallet – no more expired paper cards in my glove compartment!
