1. What are the different types of car insurance coverage?
The three main types of car insurance coverage are liability, collision, and comprehensive. Liability coverage protects you financially if you’re found at fault in an accident. Collision coverage pays for damage to your own vehicle if you’re involved in an accident. Comprehensive coverage protects you from damage caused by things like weather events, theft, or vandalism.
2. How much car insurance do I need?
The amount of MiWay Insurance you need depends on a few factors, including the value of your vehicle and your personal financial situation. If your car is paid off and isn’t worth very much, you may decide that you only need liability coverage. On the other hand, if you have a newer car with a loan attached to it, you’ll probably want to carry collision and comprehensive coverage in addition to liability.
3. How much does car insurance cost?
Again, this depends on a few factors, such as the type(s) of coverage you choose, the deductibles you select, the amount of coverage you purchase, and the state in which you live. In general, though, you can expect to pay somewhere between $50 and $200 per month for an individual policy.
4. How can I save money on my car insurance premium?
There are a few things you can do to lower your monthly premium, including increasing your deductible, bundling your auto insurance with other types of insurance (e.g., homeowners or renters), or taking advantage of discounts offered by your insurer. Be sure to ask about discounts when you’re shopping around for an insurer!
5. What if I can’t afford my premium?
If your premium is too high and you can’t afford it, your options include reducing the amount of coverage on your policy or looking for a less expensive insurer. You should never cancel your policy outright because this could leave you vulnerable in the event of an accident; if you can’t afford your policy, call around and see if another company can offer you a better rate.
6. What happens if I’m in an accident and the other driver is at fault?
Suppose the other driver is at fault; their liability coverage would be able to cover any damage to your car and any medical expenses. It’s important to exchange insurance information with the other driver and report the accident to your insurer as soon as possible. Your insurance company may also help you file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company.
