anti theftQuality car insurance protection can be affordable. It doesn’t have to come at a high cost. Allstate provides affordable car insurance options based on your needs. Whether you want to bundle your home and car insurance (multi-line), insure more than one vehicle (multi-vehicle), or you are just starting out on the road, Allstate may have a discount for you.
Be rewarded with a discount for being you. Allstate provides discounts based on your lifestyle, occupation and age - from student drivers to retirees.
For drivers under 25, insurance can be costly. Allstate provides a Good Student Driver Discount—this means your good grades could save you money. If you attend school over 100 km away from your postal address, you could be eligible for a discount. Newly licensed drivers could also take a recognized driver safety course to lower their premium.
But it’s not just younger drivers who can save money. Drivers over 65 years can enjoy a Retiree discount, or if you have been with Allstate for more than three years, you could take advantage of a Renewal discount.
As a safe driver, you could save up to $100 on your deductible every year you go without making a claim with Allstate’s Disappearing Deductible. Another way experienced drivers could reduce costs with safe driving habits is by signing up with Allstate’s Drivewise app
Discounts for your vehicleAllstate understands that buying a car is a huge expense. Insuring your car shouldn’t have to be. Purchasing a brand new vehicle could lower your car insurance rate, especially if your car has the latest auto safety features installed. If your car has advanced driver safety features such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, a park assist camera for example, you could be eligible for a discount. Additionally, keeping your vehicle safe in off-street parking or equipping it with an anti-theft device could reduce your premiums. To find out how you can save on your car insurance, go to the Allstate’s auto insurance discount page.

††Allstate Car Buying Service (the “Service”) is provided by Unhaggle Inc. (“Unhaggle”). Unhaggle operates the dealer network and the Service’s websites under the Allstate domain. Allstate and Unhaggle do not broker, sell, or lease motor vehicles. Allstate has no financial relationship with any dealer in the dealer network. Each Unhaggle certified dealer will confirm vehicle availability from in-stock inventory, including options and color choices. Pricing is subject to availability of inventory and valid on in-stock vehicles at the specified dealership only. The Service may not be available in your particular location.

The average total savings off MSRP published on Unhaggle operated websites across all available makes, models, and regions was $3,184 in 2015. This savings figure is inclusive of price discounts offered by dealerships and applicable manufacturer incentives (assumes cash purchase). Actual savings amounts realized by consumers are not guaranteed and will vary based on multiple factors including, but not limited to, vehicle selected, region, dealership, and applicable manufacturer incentives.
Manufacturer’s Standard Retail Price (“MSRP”) is the price the vehicle manufacturer has suggested for a vehicle. It is a realistic price for the vehicle but it is not necessarily the market price. Dealers may sell for less. It is rare for anyone to pay full MSRP. Average Price represents Unhaggle's exclusive method for calculating the average sale price of a vehicle based on actual sales data in the region.
Licence and registration fees are extra and not included in the prices displayed. Where applicable, purchases are subject to credit approval at the dealership. While efforts are made to ensure that the information and calculations displayed are accurate, pricing, incentives, and discounts may vary and are subject to change or discontinuation at any time. Unhaggle, Allstate, dealers in the dealership network, and manufacturers referred to in this website are not liable for any inaccuracies in the information presented.
The Exclusive Price (the “Exclusive Price”) is provided by Dealer Representatives in the Service’s dealer network and not by Unhaggle or Allstate. Exclusive Price signifies a savings value from the MSRP for a vehicle as configured by the user. Exclusive Price will only be honoured by the Dealer Representative listed on the Price Certificate (the “Certificate”) for the vehicle as configured. To obtain the Exclusive Price, you must present your Certificate to the indicated Dealer Representative upon arrival at the dealership. Exclusive Price expires at the end of each calendar month of the date the Certificate was generated or immediately upon a manufacturer incentive or rebate change.
Unhaggle membership and/or purchase of a product through the Service does not guarantee eligibility for insurance coverage with Allstate. No contractual relationship is established between Allstate and users of the Service unless a policy of insurance is specifically purchased from Allstate.
