What is the purpose of comprehensive coverage?
Comprehensive insurance coverage, also known as “other than collision” coverage, is a car insurance coverage that can help pay the costs of damage to your car for non-collision related claims. For example, it can help pay for damages caused by hail, theft, fire or hitting an animal.
What is covered under comprehensive deductible?
Your comprehensive deductible is defined as the amount you pay out of pocket to repair or replace your vehicle after your claim is approved; this means that the remaining costs are covered by your insurance company (up to the actual cash value of your vehicle).
Is it worth getting comprehensive?
Comprehensive coverage may be a worthwhile investment if you have a newer car and want to help protect your finances in case of theft or damage. Consider whether you could afford to pay for expensive repairs to your car or replace it. If not, comprehensive coverage may be worth the cost for you.
