What is Comprehensive Car Insurance?

Comprehensive coverage, also known as “other than collision” coverage, protects your car from events outside of your control, such as:

  • Theft: If your car is stolen, comprehensive insurance reimburses you for its replacement or repairs if recovered in damaged condition.
  • Vandalism: Whether it’s a keying or a smashed window, comprehensive coverage helps cover the repair costs if someone maliciously damages your car.
  • Glass Breakage: Cracked windshield due to a stray rock? Comprehensive coverage typically pays for repairs to your car’s windshield and windows (excluding collisions).
  • Fire: Regardless of the fire’s cause, comprehensive insurance helps cover the damage to your car.
  • Weather Events: Hailstorms, floods, falling objects – comprehensive coverage protects your car from the wrath of nature.
  • Hitting an Animal: Collisions with animals like deer are covered under comprehensive coverage.

Do You Need Comprehensive Coverage?

While not mandatory, comprehensive coverage is highly recommended in several scenarios:

  • Financed or Leased Car: If you’re leasing or financing your car, your lender will likely require comprehensive coverage alongside collision insurance to protect their investment.
  • Valuable Car: Even if you own your car outright, comprehensive coverage is wise for valuable vehicles, offering financial security in case of theft or other covered events.
  • High-Risk Areas: Live in a place with high theft rates, vandalism, or frequent bad weather? Comprehensive coverage provides peace of mind.

Key Things to Consider:

  • Deductible: This is the amount you pay out-of-pocket before your insurance kicks in. Choose a higher deductible to lower your premium, but remember you’ll shoulder more cost if you need to file a claim.
  • Cost: The premium for comprehensive coverage varies depending on your car’s value, location, driving record, and chosen deductible.
  • Policy Coverage: Not all events are covered equally. Carefully read your policy to understand what is and isn’t included.
