- What is comprehensive coverage?
Comprehensive car insurance is usually overshadowed by its better known cousin, collision insurance, but it's just as important. Otherwise known as "other than collision" or "comprehensive coverage". It actually doesn't give you complete coverage, contrary to what its name might indicate. Comprehensive car insurance covers damage to your vehicle not caused by a collision. Types of Damage Covered Under Comprehensive Auto Insurance Below are a couple examples of accidents and mishaps other than fender-benders: • Natural disasters: storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, hailstorms • Fire, civil commotions, explosions • Vandalism and theft • Damage from impacts with animals (deer, etc.) • Broken / shattered windows and windshield • Falling objects
- What is collision coverage?
Collision coverage refers to protection for your car when it is involved in a crash with another vehicle or a stationary object. Most car crashes and auto accidents fall under this kind of insurance coverage. The types of damages include crashing into another vehicle, another vehicle colliding with yours, or ramming into a street light, pole, or some other stationary object. It'll cover the cost of repairs or replacements to your own car (liability coverage and insurance takes care of damages to other people's property).
- What is rental coverage?
Rental coverage pays for the cost of a rental car when you need a rental car because of an event covered by your policy. For example, if you’re in a wreck and need a rental, then the policy would pay for a rental. But if you need a rental because your car has mechanical issues, the rental coverage wouldn’t likely apply in that situation. Rental is a suplemental coverage that must be requested and there is a limit of up to $25 a day and a maximum of $750 per occurrence depending on the coverage purchased.
- What is towing coverage?
Towing coverage will reimburse you for towing charges that are incurred when you can’t drive your car. Coverage will reimburse up to $40 per disablement.
