Customer Service

Where is Surex Direct located?

Our head office is in Magrath, Alberta. Being an online brokerage, we do not have customer service offices. With the money saved, by not renting office spaces throughout the country, we believe it is right to donate a percentage of all profits to help support Canadian charities and organizations.

Buying Online

Is my information secure?

Yes. We do not sell or distribute information, so you'll never have to worry about getting contacted from third parties. In this sense, we are more secure than many traditional brokerages.

Can I buy my insurance without talking to a person?

Yes. Once you have entered your information online, as long as our system is able to process it, you'll be on your way. After, a broker may reach out to you to verify your information and welcome you to Surex Direct.

How do I get my pink card?

Once you finish purchasing your insurance policy, you'll have access to your personal account with 'My Surex' 24/7. Here, you can print your pink card, make changes to your policy and double check your price on renewal.

What is an affiliate code?

We like to give back to the communities and organizations that support us. An affiliate code allows us to see what organization put you in contact with us, so we can give back to them. Even if you do not have an affiliate code, a percentage of your business will still go to a Canadian charity.

How do I cancel my old policy?

Simply, fax or email a signed letter to your former broker/company. Be sure to include your full name, policy number and the date you wish to cancel. We believe in making things as easy as possible for our customers, so give us a call and we'll help walk you through the process.

What if Surex Direct doesn't beat my current price?

If this happens, please click the 'Policy Pat Down' request at the bottom of your compare quotes page. We will have one of our brokers review your quote manually and contact you directly. As long as your information is accurate, we should be able to get you your best price.

What insurance policies can I bundle?

Any combination of vehicles and home insurance can be bundled. Speak with your broker to get a quote and find out how easy it is to save money through bundling.
