About Travelers Canada Insurance

The umbrella on the logo of Travelers Canada is important because the company acts as a corporation for numerous insurers across the country. Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company, which began operations back in 1887, is a part of the Travelers family, making the company among the most experienced in Canada.

Dominion was purchased by US-based insurance giant Travelers and still exists today. Travelers Canada also comprises St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Company and Travelers Insurance Company of Canada. According to the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) of Ontario, Dominion's 2022 private passenger automobile direct written premium market share in Ontario is 2.75%. FSRA also reports that at the beginning of 2024, Dominion approved a rate change of 8.15%, which came into effect on April 14, 2024. This is significantly higher than the 2.63% rate change approved in June, 2023.

The company has nearly 1,400 employees across Canada and offers insurance solutions through auto, home, commercial and other lines. The wider Travelers Insurance group is among the leading insurance brands in the world, with 30,000 employees in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland and Brazil. The company operates in 80 countries.

In Canada, Travelers is noted for its attention to detail, diverse coverage, and strong customer care. In 2013, Travelers acquired The Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company, acquiring Chieftain Insurance in the process.

Travelers Canada: The company with the best auto claims experience in Canada in 2024

RATESDOTCA along with Pollara Strategic Insights conducted a survey of NFP Canada and Scoop auto insurance customers. The Best Home and Auto Insurance Awards survey considers many factors to determine which insurer performs the best in each category. The survey was completed between August 18, 2023, and September 18, 2023, using an online survey methodology.

A total sample size of 8,875 auto insurance customers in Ontario and Alberta – the two largest markets for private auto insurance in anglophone Canada – responded to the survey.

Travelers Canada emerged as a winner in the Best Auto Claim Experience category with 81% of claimants reporting that they were satisfied with the overall service they received. This category was based on customers who had filed for a claim in the past year (2022-2023) and how well they rated their claims experience. Most claims filed by insurers were due to collisions, especially among Travelers customers. Some of the factors for a good claim experience are:

  • Ease of reporting a claim
  • Ease of understanding the process once the claim was received by the insurance company
  • Proactive communication throughout the claim process
  • Easy to reach insurance company representative
  • Claim resolution in timely manner

Travelers ranked on top for all aspects of claims service, especially for clearly outlining the process when the claim was opened. The company was rated about average on most other aspects of claims service as well.
