Autoplan payment plan
It's easy to spread out the cost of your insurance with the ICBC payment plan. You can choose monthly or quarterly payments on a 12-month policy.
Payment plans and COVID-19 (updated March 27)
We recognize the financial impact COVID-19 may have on our customers and want to provide some relief during this challenging time. Customers on a monthly Autoplan payment plan, who are facing financial challenges due to COVID-19, can defer their payment for up to 90 days with no penalty.
Due to high call volumes, we encourage you to use our online resource tool to apply for deferrals. If you are approaching your deferral payment due date, and you do not want the payment withdrawn on that date, please call us to discuss your payment options.
Who can sign up
To be eligible for the payment plan, you must prove that you:
If you're under 19, you'll need your parent or guardian to co-sign the payment plan.
Six-month payment plan
You'll have to sign up for a six-month plan if you:
are new to B.C. or haven't been on our payment plan within the past year
don't have a B.C. driver's licence or
are just ending a one-year period on a cash-only basis with ICBC due to payment problems in the past
Once you've successfully completed a six-month plan, you can apply for the 12-month plan.
Better budgeting and flexibility
Our Autoplan payment plan allows you to make easy-to-manage, scheduled payments to help with your monthly budgeting. You can:
spread the cost over equal monthly or quarterly payments
choose a monthly or quarterly withdrawal date that works for you. (The first payment comes out on the renewal date.)
pay the full balance at any time
Save money on interest
You may not realize how much you could be paying in interest, if you don't pay your credit card balance in full. We offer a lower finance rate compared to many Canadian credit cards.
Payment plan terms
The one time enrolment fee is $15. You won't need to pay again as long as you keep your plan and renew it within 12 months of your Autoplan policy. The finance rate is 2.95% calculated using the straight line interest method over twelve months and is fixed from the day you sign up. Your monthly or quarterly payment stays the same. You may also pay the full balance at any time.
Defer a monthly payment
You can submit one deferral request per policy term.
If you need to change the date of an upcoming monthly payment, you can submit an
online payment deferral request. Please note that if you're using any web browser other than Internet Explorer (IE), not all mandatory fields appear mandatory.
You'll need your policy or licence plate number, your driver's licence number and the date of next payment. Submit your request at least one business day before your next payment is due, before 6 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and statutory holidays are not considered business days.
We'll email you to let you know the status of your request.
If there isn't enough money in your account when your monthly payment is due or if your financial institution has returned your payment, you'll have to pay an $18 fee. Within three to five days, we'll try to withdraw the missed payment again. If that's not successful, we'll contact you.
Cancel payment plan
If you need to cancel your insurance, try to do it at least one day before your payment is due to avoid an unexpected withdrawal.
