Beginning May 5, 2020, customers who notify Dorey & Tolgyesi Ins Brokers us that they’re driving less than before will see a temporary minimum rate reduction of approximately 15% per vehicle. This is an extension of our previous announcement where we were offering a rate reduction of up to 15%.
For customers who inform Dorey & Tolgyesi Ins Brokers that they’re driving less, we’re also removing the requirement for them to notify Dorey & Tolgyesi Ins Brokers once their driving situation has changed and instead will apply the rate reduction for 90 days automatically for all changes effective prior to May 31, 2020.
This rate reduction is available to all qualifying private passenger vehicles where the customer is driving less, including those currently rated as pleasure use, customers who are commuting to work but driving significantly less, and all driving classes (including underage principal drivers). The size of rate reduction will continue to reflect the magnitude of the usage reduction – larger reductions in-vehicle use will result in larger premium reductions.
From May 1, 2020, customers who are driving less may be entitled to a 15% discount on their Auto Insurance premiums until June 1, 2020
No changes in payment process to date have been confirmed
