So what is Comprehensive vs Collision Coverage?
New car – check, loan finalized – check, insurance purchased – check. But do you understand the last part? If you have a loan for your new car the bank will require you to have collision and comprehensive coverage on your auto policy, but do you understand why? These are two separate coverages and many times, two different deductibles.
Collision covers damages to your car when your car hits, or is hit by, another vehicle or other object.
Comprehensive covers your vehicle for losses resulting from incidents other than a collision. This includes damages to your car if it is stolen or damaged by flood, fire, falling objects or animals.
