5 Things You May Not Know About Your Onlia Insurance Policy

These things may surprise (and delight) you.

by Team Onlia

Here at Onlia we think about insurance differently, which means we also do things a bit differently. We believe insurance should be simple, easy to understand, fair, and convenient. So we've built it that way.

If you're reading this, you've likely already discovered that we offer insurance that you can buy online. We think that in and of itself is pretty neat. But there are a ton of other great product features and services that come along with your Onlia insurance policy.

If you’re one of the first Canadians who have purchased an Onlia auto insurance policy with us (thank you!), you may have noticed some of these great items along the way. But just in case, we wanted to highlight 5 things that you may not know about your Onlia insurance policy.

You can cancel anytime

No seriously, we mean it! We know that life happens fast. With our online MyAccount you can manage or cancel your insurance policy online, from anywhere, 24/7, in just a few clicks. We offer you total flexibility and put you in the driver’s seat. The best part? Your cancellation is effective next day, there are no hidden fees or strings attached, and no paperwork or phone calls required. Ah-mazing!

You are billed by the day

At Onlia, February is your new favourite month! With your insurance policy, you are billed by the day and only pay for the number of days that you use. Why do we do it this way? In order to give you the ability to modify or cancel your policy anytime, we need to make sure you’re only billed for the days you actually use. Sounds fair, right?

If you buy today, you can drive tomorrow

Onlia makes it easy to buy insurance. Just answer some simple questions and we’ll build you a policy that you can buy on the spot. With our digital process, you can access your account information online as soon as you register your account. A digital copy of your pink slip is available in MyAccount once you’ve confirmed your policy, and we’ll mail you your pink slip typically within 5-7 days.
