Kanetix.ca launches first Canadian online car insurance comparison app

Canadians now able to compare car insurance estimates instantly from their smartphone with the Kanetix Car Insurance Quick Quote App

Toronto, ON (Jan. 16, 2013) – Online financial comparison service, Kanetix.ca, announced the launch of the Kanetix Car Insurance Quick Quote app today, which allows Canadians to scan and compare auto insurance quote estimates, all conveniently from their iPhone.

A first in Canada, the free app is available directly from the Apple App Store. Users can quickly compare how much it costs to insure 1, 2, 3 or more cars in a matter of seconds:

  • Compare quote estimates ranked low, medium or high
  • Scan in car VINs for simple quote updates
  • Save quote and vehicle details for easy repeat visits
  • Get policy renewal reminders delivered right to your phone
  • One tap to connect to Kanetix

By offering Kanetix’s auto insurance comparison service as an app, Kanetix believes it will become the ‘go-to’ app for drivers in the market to buy a car. Knowing how much a vehicle could end up costing to insure prior to buying or leasing could sway a decision and even save buyers thousands of dollars in the process.

“We’re very excited to be offering the first car insurance comparison app in Canada, and hope drivers take advantage of its benefits when looking to compare the cost of insuring different vehicles,” said Vice-President of Kanetix.ca, Janine White. “Given the popularity of smartphones in Canada, we [at Kanetix] felt offering an app that helps drivers get instant quote estimates for their car insurance was a logical next step in evolving our customer’s experience.”
