Do insurance companies sell insurance for lost cell phones?

There are companies that will sell consumers insurance for their cell phones. Typically the continued cost of insurance would out weight the cost of a phone replacement, unless it is a frequent occurrence. As with other insurances, the frequent claims against your insurance will increase the rates or cause you to be dropped from coverage.


Are auto insurance companies in Canada allowed to raise rates because of an accident?

Yes they are, and the majority of time that is when they will raise rates, especially when you are at fault. If you were at-fault for the accident and had to make a insurance claim, then your rates will definitely increase, since you are a higher risk driver, and the insurance company had to pay out because of you. If you are in an accident that you were not at fault, then your rates should not increase but they might. Some companies again see this as you being a higher risk driver since you were in a accident, even if it wasn't your fault, so they will raise the rates. If this happens, I recommend switching insurance companies, as a good company should not do this. In either case your rates will not increase until your insurance is up for renewal. At which point, if they do increase I would recommend looking around and comparing prices from other companies

If you report the incident to your insurance company, and want them to cover the damages, it's more than likely they will consider it an 'at fault' accident, and it's possible your rates will increase, especially if it's not your first accident.
