Taking a road trip? Are you a snowbird heading south for the winter? Here's how to stay protected on the road.
Your Autoplan insurance covers you anywhere in Canada and the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii.
When you're using your car for vacation purposes outside the province, you don't need to change your insurance policy. If you're mixing travel with business, you'll likely need to add some coverage. To get the right coverage, ask your Autoplan broker.
Make sure to check the expiry date on your insurance before you leave. If your insurance expires while you're out of B.C. and you're involved in a crash, you won't be covered. If necessary, you can renew your insurance before you leave.
If you're outside of B.C. and need to renew your insurance, call us:

Many people choose to increase their Third Party liability coverage if they're travelling in the U.S.. Claim settlements in the U.S. can be quite a bit higher than here in B.C.
Also, Excess Underinsured Motorist Protection could be a good way to protect you and members of your household from the cost of injuries caused by another driver who doesn't have enough insurance.
We also offer some travel protection coverage. Speak to your Autoplan broker about the coverage that's right for you.
Your Autoplan insurance will not cover you outside of Canada and the U.S. If you're driving to Mexico or beyond, discuss your auto insurance needs with an ICBC Autoplan broker.
If you're outside of Canada and the U.S. for more than 30 continuous days, you may qualify for a refund of the ICBC insurance premium you paid while away.
To apply for a refund, submit these documents to our Customer service department:
