You are eligible to enroll in the My_BRIDGETM program if you are insured with Pembridge and own a 1998 or later model vehicle. Electric, diesel or hybrid vehicles are excluded from the program.
Here in Canada, usage-based insurance is fairly new, but it’s thoroughly regulated. Regardless, a number of myths have surfaced around this technology, which may prevent Canadians from taking advantage of it. We wanted to help set the record straight on usage-based insurance and explain how it may assist drivers in becoming better drivers, while saving them money on premiums.
You can download our free My_BRIDGETM app from The App Store (iOS version) or Google Play (Android version) to your smartphone. This application will monitor your next 5-trips to replicate the My_BRIDGETM process. This will give you details about your driving habits and projected discount range. Customers who download the My_BRIDGETM app are then eligible for an additional 5% enrollment discount (a total combined discount of 10%) when they enroll in the My_BRIDGETM program.
* Enrollment discounts vary by Province. Please discuss with your broker.
