Is comprehensive insurance good?
Comprehensive insurance is usually considered to be a good investment since it’s cheaper than other types of car insurance and covers events that are out of your control as a driver. A good rule of thumb is that if the cost of comprehensive insurance exceeds 10% of your vehicle’s value, you can consider dropping it.
How important is comprehensive coverage?
Comprehensive coverage helps pay to repair or replace your car if it’s stolen or damaged by something other than a collision. Comprehensive typically helps cover theft and damage from vandalism and natural disasters, falling objects, fire, hail, flood or animals.
Is it better to have collision or comprehensive?
It is better to have comprehensive insurance than collision insurance, if you need to choose between the two. Comprehensive coverage is inexpensive, can be purchased alone, and pays for damage due to events beyond your control, such as vandalism, theft, natural disasters or run-ins with animals.
