Travelers Insurance gets its name from providing railway passengers insurance in Hartford in 1864. At the time, it was a risky proposition. Today, Travelers Canada has its head office in Toronto, Ontario. Travelers Canada offers car, home, boat, group, and business insurance across Canada. In 2013, after acquiring the Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company, they are one of the leading property and casualty (P & C) companies in Canada, with over 1,700 employees. At the end of 2016, Travelers global operations had assets totalling $100 billion.
Tenant (Renter's) insurance
If you’re in Ontario, you can Travelers insurance directly at 1-844-240-9777. If you live anywhere else in Canada, Travelers recommends you speaking to independent, professional brokers that can provide you choices to best suit your needs - everything from budget to your personal requirements. Brokerages are certified resellers of insurance products for various insurance companies. Every brokerage will establish agreements with individual insurance companies in order to be able to offer their complement of products.
The benefit of purchasing directly is that you are connecting with the source, but the drawback is that they are only experts with regards to their own products and are only concerned with selling you what they have to offer. On the other hand, the benefit of purchasing from an insurance broker is that they have a better understanding of what’s in the market and can provide you with a less biased take on what’s available to you. The primary drawback from purchasing insurance from a broker versus going direct is that it may cost you a bit more than if you had chosen to purchase directly from an insurer. As always, we recommend you take the time to shop and compare insurance providers to make sure you are getting the best policy for the right price to meet your needs.
