  • If you have 20 or more motor vehicles insured for commercial or business use, Fleetplan participation is required.

Crashes and driver impacts

Changes which may impact your employees and customers

Moving to an insurance model that’s more driver-based means crashes will now follow the driver. So if one of your employees or customers has had an at-fault crash while driving a fleet vehicle - and the first payment on that claim occurred on or after March 1, 2017 - that crash may now follow them and impact their personal and non-fleet commercial insurance. Whether there is an impact depends on the rate class of the fleet vehicle involved in the crash and whether that claim has been repaid.

How does the rate class impact my employees?

Your fleet vehicles belong to a rate class and these can be divided into three categories – personal rate classes, commercial rate classes, and rate classes that do not belong to a profile.

  • If a driver causes a crash while driving a fleet vehicle with a commercial rate class – for example, a bus – the claim will not impact the driver’s personal policies as the crash occured in a commercial rate class vehicle. It will only impact other policies with commercial rate classes that the driver is listed on (non-fleet commercial vehicles).
  • If a driver causes a crash while driving a fleet vehicle with a personal rate class – for example a company car rated for business use – the claim will impact all policies where the driver is listed, including their own personal insurance.
Drivers of fleet or business vehicles offers a closer look at rate classes and employee impacts.

Claim repayment for Fleetplan

  • Claim repayment rules are not changing for fleet owners after September 1, 2019. 
  • Claim repayment up to $2,000 (including deductible) is available for your drivers through an Autoplan broker. For anything above the $2,000 limit, repayments would need to go through you (the Fleetplan policy owner).

How we calculate fleet premiums

How we calculate fleet premiums

For each vehicle in your fleet, the premium is based on the business use of the vehicle, the territories in which it operates and the value of the vehicle.

Once these factors are taken into account, the overall fleet discount or surcharge is applied.

The fleet discount or surcharge is based on the fleet's "loss ratio" over a three-year period. Fewer at-fault claims means a lower loss ratio and a higher fleet discount.
 
The loss ratio is the percentage of the fleet's total premium (before discount) compared to all dollars used to pay for the fleet's at-fault claims.

Further discounts for large fleets

We have a voluntary, performance-based program (Fleet Premium Adjustment Agreement, or "Retro") that can earn large fleets up to 35 per cent in premium returns.

To join, you just need to

  • insure more than 200 vehicles, or
  • have an annual premium after discount of $100,000 or more.

Premiums are based on your loss ratio

​If...

​Then...

your loss ratio is 25% or less​you receive 35% of your annual premium back the following year
your loss ratio exceeds 65%​you will have to pay an additional 10% of your annual premium
