Canadians now able to compare car insurance estimates instantly from
their smartphone with the Kanetix Car Insurance Quick Quote App
Online financial comparison service, Kanetix.ca, announced the launch of the Kanetix Car Insurance Quick Quote app today, which allows Canadians to scan and compare auto insurance quote
estimates, all conveniently from their iPhone.
A first in Canada, the free app is available directly from the Apple App
Store. Users can quickly compare how much it costs to insure 1, 2, 3 or
more cars in a matter of seconds:

By offering Kanetix's auto insurance comparison service as an app, Kanetix believes it will become the 'go-to' app for drivers in the market to
buy a car. Knowing how much a vehicle could end up costing to insure
prior to buying or leasing could sway a decision and even save buyers
thousands of dollars in the process.

app in Canada, and hope drivers take advantage of its benefits when
looking to compare the cost of insuring different vehicles," said
Vice-President of Kanetix.ca, Janine White. "Given the popularity of
smartphones in Canada, we [at Kanetix] felt offering an app that helps
drivers get instant quote estimates for their car insurance was a
logical next step in evolving our customer's experience."
