How should you question your auto insurance company about auto insurance? This article will help you make a decision between the different insurance policies.

There are many types of auto insurance

Third party insurance is also known as liability insurance.

This is the most basic type of insurance an auto insurance company offers. This is basic insurance. If you are involved in an auto accident and it is found to be your fault the auto insurance company will pay damages.

The auto insurance company usually sets the coverage they will offer. These are the maximum payouts that an auto insurance company will make in the case of an accident

An example: The agent might agree to $10000 (bodily Injury) coverage and/or $40000 (Bodily Injury) coverage.

It is important to check with your auto insurance company about what they will cover, and what the limits are.

Some auto insurance companies might offer you a low premium, but then you realize your coverage is very limited and unrealistic.

Comprehensive and collision coverage, comprehensive coverage, comprehensive and complete insurance.

A comprehensive insurance policy is also offered by an auto insurance company. This will cover you completely.

This means that if your vehicle is involved in a collision, the insurance company will pay for its repair.

However, it’s not as simple as it seems. Auto insurance companies almost always have final say over the amount that is paid out. They will pay less if the market value is lower.

Your car might seem to be worth $1000.00. However, its true market value may be $500.00. This is not a common scenario. If the cost of repairs to your vehicle exceeds $500.00, the auto insurance company will pay the car’s book value.

It is important to ensure that your insurance company does not control the car’s market value. Organizations like the AA can usually give an impartial value.

The auto insurance company will limit the amount of the payment, just like the third-party insurance. However, comprehensive insurance will generally have higher limits.

Recreation Vehicle

A recreational vehicle requires its own insurance. It is different from auto insurance.
It is not a good idea to assume that your vehicle is fully insured just because it is your car.

There are other types of auto insurance

MedPay, Persona Injured Protection (PIP), as well as no fault insurance.

The insurance covers you and your passengers for medical expenses in case of a crash.

No fault coverage means that no matter who is responsible, the auto insurance company will cover you. This will give you the peace of mind that at least your family and friends are covered.

Sometimes, PIP is a minimum requirement in certain countries or states. Ask your auto insurer what the requirements are.

Uninsured/Underinsured motorists’ coverage

If the person at fault isn’t insured or underinsured, this coverage will protect you.

Ask your auto insurer what you are covered for. You will be charged in case of such a situation. Normally, the auto insurance company will not charge extra premiums.

Towing, rental reimbursement and labour

Auto insurance companies often refer to these ‘extras’ as specials.

In the event that your car is damaged, your auto insurance company will cover rental costs (sometimes for only a few days).

Auto insurance companies might offer to tow your car for you (not always).

You should always ask your auto insurer what coverage is available.

The legal requirements

A majority of states and countries require some level of coverage, including full comprehensive auto insurance or third-party auto insurance.

It is usually up to the driver to make sure that your auto insurance company provides the minimum coverage. The insurance company (auto insurance company) is not required to inform you about the requirements in most cases.
